More consistency is achieved by getting rid of several parts of the ancient conventional golf swing. . .the one we’ve all been taught.
|"Somewhere about. . .here ought to do it."|
We stand over the ball. . .take our stance. . .wiggle the club a few times. . .settle in (as it were). . .then slowly (or not so slowly) take the club "AWAY." Now stop, right there, STOP. Look at that word: “AWAY.” Where are we taking the club AWAY to? Hmm. We sorta, yeah, that’s the right word, “sorta,” move the club somewhere back there. . .how far back there, hmmm. . .or should it end up over THERE?
|"I love my rhythm trainer. . ."|
Now. . .we’ve got the club back. . .takeaway results in what we’ve come to call the BACKSWING. Now what? Now, we’ve got to get the club and our body over to that spot. . .that exact spot. . .where we can exert the correct force to the ball to get it to that place we imagine it’s going. To get back to that spot. . .that exact spot. . .where we put force to the golf ball. . .we engage it what they call RHYTHM. Ah, another part of the ancient conventional swing that puts in play a whole host of problems.
Why does everyone. . .EVERYONE. . .have problems with being consistently in rhythm during a round of golf? Let’s examine a few things that always happen during every round of golf. First, we feel a little frisky in the early part of a round and tend to want to kill the ball, right? We tend to over-swing because we feel strong and want to crush the bloody ball like the pros, right? “Great drive Frank.” Frank just hit one 285 right down the middle. But by the time Frank gets to number 9 or 10, he’s starting to get a little tired. . .tired in the legs. . .maybe he’s starting to tighten up a bit in the lower back. . .we’ve all been there, done that.
So, pretty soon Frank can’t quite get the club face square at impact and the ball goes off to the right (right-handers). . .and he finds himself in the rough. Or, realizing he’s been a little “late” on the last few shots. . .he over cranks a bit and hooks the ball over to the far left - maybe in the other fairway. Trees block his second shot. We’ve all done this, right? Well, I’ve eliminated the takeaway and the whole concept of rhythm.
In the ‘GOOSE’ Tutorial, you’ll see me simply lift the club into position. . .and stay there if necessary. I can stay there indefinitely. At 76 I might cramp up, ha, ha, but I’m trying to make the point that you no longer have to even think about “staying in rhythm so as to execute the shot correctly.” The ‘GOOSE’ is a top-down swing. . .and there is NO takeaway. . .so there’s NO challenge to find your way back to the ball. When you lift the club, you’re in position to apply force. . .right then. . .right there. . .And you’ve hardly moved at all.
As you can “see” from this explanation, when you get rid of what I call the “sway and swat” problems, you can’t help but begin to be much more consistent. The radical elements. . .the takeaway and rhythm are gone. And once the main radical elements are gone, your brain no longer has to cope with them. . .You’ll find yourself much more engaged in the actual shot. . .and not how to carry it off.
