Having worked on my swing change drills from my last lesson and taking it out on course for a few rounds, I started to feel, notice, a lot of shots going left... Pulled left, but also with a draw in the tail.

Before going off on the wrong tangent and miss diagnosing things for myself I went back to the new coach, Chris, for a lesson on Friday. I'm glad I did as the 'fix' is not something I would have known to consider.

In short, my focus has been on starting the downswing with my lower body, hips... And to stop the casting from the top, which the drills I had have corrected, plus working on path getting it away for the OTT.

But.

My start with my hip, left hip going back, was still pulling my shoulder around too much. So, Chris suggested I think about turning my belt buckle toward my left knee to start the forward swing and with that start with a weight shift toward the target while turning the hip.

Worked a treat, once I got my body to do what it should and everything fell into line ... Lag was better, swing path good, impact position solid reverse K (video analysis)... and so the shots were no longer pulling left.

We then worked on path and wrists... And with that I had an "ah ha" moment around the whole "hands go right" and "hips go left" ... I've just gotta trust it!

Some work needed to get consistent with this new sensation. A key for me was thinking about striking the ball on the inside back quadrant of the ball (rather than as I had always thought, square into the back of the ball).

Started the lesson hitting the range balls to a flag that pinged 137m, with 7i landing just over it ... By the end I was flying it with an 8i, so hopeful I might get some consistent distance gain now too.

My corporate day on Friday is looking like it will be postponed due to weather. :(

 

But.

 

I'm not liking the look of the forecast up that way either. :huh:

It's going to be a wet week and wet well into next weekend. :o

 

I hate playing on a wet track, let alone in the rain. So, yeah, not sure how that will go ... :wacko:

 

And, the in-laws have decided to bombard us next weekend. :rolleyes:

 

Timing perfect with a mate from school visiting. So, yeah, I doubt I'll get up there to say g'day to the ISG crew over the weekend either. :(
