A quiet day today.Third time was not lucky and I failed my assessment at rotaryswing.com again. Last time my left side impact position was fine with my left leg posted up nicely over my left ankle. I only had to put in some axis tilt and move my weight better onto my right leg at the top of the back swing. No prizes for guessing that this time my left side was the problem with my left hip moving too far left so that it was not over my left ankle at impact.
Talk about nailing jelly to a tree. The assessment was correct. I have struggled for quite a while with my shift left just sort of floating forward without bracing. I fixed it by not shifting properly to the right then I broke it again by when I fixed my shift to the right.
Such is life. I practiced on the six hole course at the Cairns Golf Centre. I was pleased with the more penetrating flight on my wedge shots. The highlight was a 73m pitch with my 56* wedge on the second hole. Not so long ago it was strictly 50m maximum with a back swing to left arm horizontal. The extra twenty metres with the same length swing was most welcome. Even better was that it landed within a metre of the hole.
Oh, and I had a much better day with my blood sugar levels. Not only that but according to my BMI I am now officially overweight not obese. Or at least I was this morning but I did have a bit to eat and drink at lunch. Still the trend is in the right direction.
What do you think is the reason for the increase in your wedge distance? I had a similar problem with my wedges and I found it was mostly due to club throwaway.
