I was listening to this the other day,
It’s a video of Be Better Golf interviewing Irish Mike about his handicap drop. I don’t know BeBetterGolf but I’ve heard Mike’s story before and he seems like a top dude. At one point the host mentioned something about “incremental practice” and “levelling up” and how they’re different things. I had not heard that before but it stuck with me.
I feel I maybe in the middle of a level up. I play off 8, but have not really ever had a “proper” impact position, I have a bit of high handle and early extend a smidge. I’ve made it work over the years but neglected to keep an eye on strike and now i’ve a nasty heel bias (the laterals are all too common now) and that heel strike is weak and feels nasty.
So i’m working on rotating through plus squat and bump; I use a lot of Adam Young ideas (3D aim point from the NLG series). I hope to get impact bias to the toe, feel that and then pull it back. I’ve got a lesson booked for this week to check everything so hope to come away with some basepoint data and a concise plan to work on.
But is this levelling up thing real do you think? Or is everything incremental?
I had a google and of course this website came up (so much good stuff on here) https://practical-golf.com/golf-progress/
Any thoughts ?
