Swing Postings

Postby nfbandon » Mon Feb 17, 2014 1:34 pm

After really serious mod 1, 2 and 3 drilling with some exercises thrown in like the jump barbell squats I mentioned in another thread, it got warm enough to have a practice session. My goal this year is to get much tighter at the top and through the strike. I caught this one on the toe, and need to make myself stand a bit closer to the ball to deal with that, but I think this swing shows improvement from last year...and I really like the more level rotation and the lower exit.

Grady, when did you start practicing ABS protocols? Have you had periods of time away from golf?

Sorry for the delay in responding...but I have been in ABS since 2012. As far as time away from golf, sure...I work a lot as a lawyer...and don't get to play much...but I think about golf...a lot :) Beating balls is important, but drilling without a ball is perhaps more important. Worst thing you can do is perfect your imperfections by hitting endless golf balls.

Grady,

Has hitting the bag ever caused an injury?

Crow,

Over the years (before ABS) I have suffered from tendinitis from time to time, sometimes in the right wrist and sometimes in the back of the left hand. Since ABS I have had no right wrist tendinitis, but I had a bad case of back of left hand tendinitis last year. I took some time off this winter and the tendinitis is better, but not completely gone. I suppose the impact bag is a contributor, but I am 53 and there is some wear on the tires!

That's true, I've learned drilling without a golf ball is very important. Once we put a golf ball in front of us, our "hit" impulse takes over and we revert to our previous programming if we have not drilled a new move enough.

Grady, I've been drilling a lot because of ABS and I too developed tendonitis. I caught it early and did a bunch of stretches and it cleared up in 2 weeks with constant stretching and massaging. Here i used this site.

I got out to the range today and took some video. If you notice I've really been focusing on my ground pressures. My right leg is like a post now. In the video, because of the angle it looks like I'm playing the ball in the middle of my stance but really it's off my left heel. As a result of my increased leg work, my low point is much farther down the line. Weird, it feels like i turn through the entire shot, but looking at the stills, my hips and legs don't change from p3 to p4
