Everything you say and show makes so much sense to me but I have not seen any results on my score card.

Been trying to figure out when to grip the club, set up positions and all that, in spite of the goldie lock series. different for different clubs and lies. I have to use my imagination. Also I am not as strong as you. My strength has always come from the core and upper body. Not very strong legs. Are there any hope for me or is this system more for strong athlets. Sometimes I have been able to swing the club as you suggest with normal grip and closed face – a bit successful – but not for every shot. Uphill, deep rough etc no use. Of course I am doing something wrong.

Then I try to copy Savy – although she is a lot stronger too. The ball goes further but to the left. With the interlock grip I have now got pain in my pinky finger – perhaps arthritis. Worked pretty well the whole summer but now when it is colder the pain has set in. Would love to learn Savys set up. I do not see any closed club face here – rather open face. Weight distribution at set up etc. I am also curious when she takes the grip. Behind the ball when she picks her intermediate point? When she puts down the club square to the intermediate point? I follow her on insta but have not been able to find out what to copy.

I almost gave up but then today i tried the – feel the weight of the arms and club unit thing — arms hihi. and that worked with the putts and the shorter clubs. However when I try to use this mindset with longer clubs i tend to duff. perhaps because the ball is further back on short chips and wedges. It will take years to go through all your videos and let each and every one sink in before you go to the next. I am 70 years old – I would like to see results soon. So much to think about – weight of arm and club unit. cutting grass, cutting the tee in the direction I want the ball to go – Not the intermediate point – This is also a question mark for me. Is this just an intentional spot to keep in mind ( I thought I should have the target in mind) since you are always swinging to the right or left of the intermediate point. I guess it is only used to get the right swing path. I guess you do not even aim at the intermediate point? When you ask me to close the face at set the face points way to the left. The blur of the club is useful though as well as swing path – right – right or left – left. Straight I have not been able to figure out :))

I do the goldie lock – my short game has always been my strength (with your teaching or Pelz – both works well for me). I do the feet together drills, I cut grass and tees and all that in the direction I want the ball to start – keeping the target in mind – but then i forget to release the club and that perhaps is the reason I have not been as successful as I had wanted with the long game.

Sorry for this long message but so much going on in my head right now.

Yes, you can see that you are still stuck with your old instruction filters which are clouding your ability to SIMPLIFY your task. Face of club at address is TRIVIAL; what is important is when you let momentum release your grass clippings in the direction you want to start the ball, that the ball flies the way you want to. See a pattern of 3 balls before you make any adjustments.
1-choose a flight plan
2-choose an intermediate point less than a foot in front to help you set up to the flight plan
3-confirm that when you let momentum deliver the grass blades in the direction you want to start the ball, that the ball position will allow the ball to start there, the club face and grip relation will allow the ball to curve back towards the target and the distance to ball will allow the arms to swing freely without loosing your balance and the posture is low enough to send grass clippings.
4-What is it going to feel like when you use momentum to whip the grass clipping that way? Ahh yes, like that! Now you are just a witness to the task being executed for you.

Thank you for your quick reply. Should I continue to try to copy Savy strong grip – no closing of the face or your style closed face normal grip? What is best for not so athletic people.

Shawn Clement

Whatever feels best for you Barbro; if you prefer the feel of a neutral grip with closed face or a strong grip with square to open face or a little in between; what matters is what happens when you deliver your grass clippings towards the target and the ball does what you want it to do in the air! 👌😀

Shawn Clement

Also, if the pinky hurts, stop using interlock and use either standard overlap or short overlap or baseball grip; you are straining the ligaments in the fingers and I have seen too many injuries with that one!

Thanks for the awesome lesson again! I have a quick clarification – How do we maintain good grip pressure but at the same time swing with ease? At times I find it challenging to separate the two “feelings”.

Shawn Clement

Great question and the reason for these 2 videos; tomorrow’s post will improve on that some more; secure is the key; feeling like when you deliver the full throw with ease that the grip will respond easily and not break down in the swing; that is when it feels strenuous.
