Picking your Head Up----De-Bunked
Like I said, it is not “Picking Your Head Up” it’s the torso/spine angle loss of angle … I like it when I self diagnose and then find out it’s correct. The older I have become, the more I understand my own swing and tendencies. You don’t have to SWING HARD to create the centrifugal force required to send a golf ball flying. It is closer to the actual acceleration you are providing pushing down into the ground and then weight shifting upwards (more or less) Executing that correctly looks like the Ernie Els deal. How does he swing so EASY and hits it tremendous distances? Stop looking at his upper body! Look below the waist. Mr Hogan is incredible… for a little dude he could bash it out there with anyone. Look at Mr Hogan’s lower body in recordings on YT. It doesn’t look what I like to call violent, but it certainly is! It helps to be able to maintain a the upper and lower body separation and the hands and arms just stay totally extended. Now as far as Mr Hogan’s upper body, NO ONE, and I mean NO ONE to this day could get their shoulder turn on (unwind) the downswing as fast his… I dare anyone to try, you won’t. He was so consistent you get that powerful lower body move combined with that consistent ultra fast shoulder turn… That’s why he looked so smooth also. The legs can really generate POWER if timed correctly…hence beating balls. End of 2021/Beginning of 2022…I was beating ball after ball and hitting the ground, whiffing, ball was going every which way. I can tell you the date and time and hole. I was 255 front 274 hole, second shot, 515 yd Par 5, second shot 12:15 in the afternoon August 13. I hit a 3metal. I finally had that perfect timing of lower and upper body. I swung and hit the ball, I did not swing hard, I just swung the club. It connected and the nad finished 10 ft away just past the hole. By JOVE I GOT IT! I did it again, BOOM, That’s when I went from being a mess, and a double digit cap down to 7 where I am today. If I could play everyday, that would come down alot too, but only playing once a week, well I am accepting of where I am.
