Grady, how much distance do you "lose" doing this drill compared to a regular swing with the same club? Considering a late acceleration being advantageous --- basically from no sooner than P3, the starting point of this drill --- I imagine it isn't as much as one might think since the post-impact portion of the drill is "all the way".
Accelerate forever!

Grady, play with ball position while doing thousands of those. This is something I have started doing...very interesting stuff.

I can get 160 out of a 6 iron doing this. I have no doubt I can get more as I get better at it.

Ballposition is learned in mod 8.

I was on the range doing this drill last week and I could consistently flush shots one after another. Low point was stable and divots were consistent. It is only when I go to a full swing that low point and divots become more erratic. It's proving to me that from transition to P3 is where most of the swing wrecking gremlins do their dirty work :evil:

I've hit about a hundred thousand balls doing this drill. It takes away the bit where we push the panic button between the top and p3. It moved my game on more than anything else.

I like that description! It's a great drill, a bit of an extended BH drill 7 to the finish - assume mod 8/9? is similar)

I had a brief session doing this drill yesterday. I was doing so well with the 6 iron I thought I would try my three wood. Hold your horses...it didn't go well. I couldn't get enough speed to get it airborne very well. That will be a new challenge. Anyone out there that can do this consistently? That would be impressive.

You beat me to it! I was going to try this today or tomorrow. I noticed on my video that my BS is a little more than 1/2, almost 3/4's. That last little pump really turns my shoulders. It still amazes me how well I can consistently strike the ball like this with the hesitation and little pump to get the transition going. I can tell you though it really is a great pivot firing drill. No other way to put anything on the ball without the pivot firing hard.

I told John how well I was hitting my 6 iron with my one handed drills and he told me to try the 3 wood. Same thing, didn't go to well and requires much more strength to fight the club flipping over and pulling away out to right field. Tough stuff. I'm going to start using my 3 wood for my Mod 3 drills and see where I get with that.

Grady,

Thanks for posting the tube videos about Room for the Arms. I got something out of that

Hope 2015 brings more ABS golfing success your way
