Popular Post GrumpyGolf Posted May 26, 2022 Popular Post Share Posted May 26, 2022 (edited) Ok, so this is a follow up to info I had posted in my fitting for the Edel wedges. While I was taking my swings, the fitter asked me a simple question, was I trying to hit the ball or was I trying to get it to the target. I thought for a moment and answered honestly that I was trying to hit the ball. He said that was my problem. At this point seeing my confusion, he stepped in front of me placed his arm straight out between us with the back of his hand toward the video screen. He then told me to hit the palm of his hand with my right hand. I did, I just hit his hand, kinda like a side ways high five. No follow through just a slap on the palm. He then told me to hit his hand to send it towards the target on the screen. Much different! I slapped it and followed through to drive it towards the screen. When he pointed out what happened, it was one of those 'get the f___ out of here' moments. I spent the rest of the session swinging through the ball instead of trying to hit the ball. I have heard the 'just let the ball get in the way of the club' axiom many times, but it never seemed to click. This however, will make my life easier. With a lot of practice and patience that is.
