Obligatory internet cats incoming:


Eagle


You

Changing it to look more like what Eagle is feeling will also make you feel like you get to the plant foot more sudden / faster. Don't be afraid to get deeper in that front hip now that you have a better understanding of how it moves.
Its funny, I had a few ripping shots where I was far more committed to the shot like eages
But thought they were all over the top and tipping, so went extreme other way. Now I know the motions I think it will be easier to dial in. It almost feels like the upper body is along for the ride if you get a nice strong move onto the front side.

Ive seen this video several times, but it makes more and more sense every time I see it, and seems to line up with your recent breakthroughs. 8 years ago GG gives an interview about how to get maximum distance and he brings up grip and rocking the hips...

Tips / drills for waiting for that energy to come through after the shift? Or is it not happening for me just yet cause of my dodgy backswing? (Most likely answering my own question...)

Threw a few holes this morning, this shot was awful but the finish position was the best yet haha

Maybe it's because your pressure shift is too slow. Ride the Bull.

Kind of yeah, GG is blending the motion a bit more, but can see how he Crushes the Can more suddenly with his moving into his front heel. Parbeqeue is landing rather flat footed and slow weight pressure to the heel.

This makes sense, as I’m focused on moving laterally, rather than laterally and down into the heel. I’m only doing half of the full shift.

To the untrained eye, it really looks like GG is spinning and twisting his hips!

Quicker to show in videos than to type see below for TLDR












TLDR; (in order)
-rotation of arm in shoulder socket instead of flat swing plane on a tilt. Old grip sucked. New grip feels awesome. outcome is FULL EXTENSION OUT TO TARGET/HIT

-hips working like feldberg hip to sky, hip to ground, hip to sky. No rotation. At all.

-backswing happening cos I told it to, rotating back instead of swinging back (manipulation vs loading) rotating x step situation + pre swing out to totally wrong place.

-result is wide af pre swing (to hit point) and backswing, striding laterally, swinging the imaginary heavy disc, loading up core/lats and then hips to sky to start swinging that weight forward, extending out with full extension to hit point.

Whats the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

So glad you had this discovery, because its bringing me back to some things I had figured out a few weeks ago then had lost a feel for. The difference now is I understand whats happening thanks to those fantastic videos you made. One discovery I had posted about is how SW22 said the push putt felt like the hammer pound. I had kept that feeling and my putt was awesome for a while, then I lost it. Im realizing now the key to the push putt is...shoulder rotation. If you keep the wrist and elbow fairly stiff and straight, and power the putt with shoulder rotation and finger spring/tendon bounce/ palm push, you can see how easy it is to power the disc and keep it on line.

I think hes just exaggerating the motion for the purpose of the demo. He should probably leave the teaching stuff to HUB and SW22 and just focus on bombing halo wraiths
