I have the $20 grass whip. The grass is going 2-3feet out to my right, no matter how hard I try to send them toward my fruit tree. The grass sits on top of the tool and then dumps out to right (left swinger). Thoughts?
Here is a pic and yes that’s paint on my pants. Haha.
It’s all good Krista! It would be different with a ball and club! The grass is releasing off the blade like a trampoline as your whip follows the arc around the body! As long as you feel the speed well past the grass and prepare to use momentum to deliver that speed! 👌👍😀
My swing flaw is all about a closing club face thru the ball, and then some sort of draw/pull. I have great feel for leverage from the ‘leverage series’ and power into the ball. And I can adjust my swing to get the clippings thru and straighten out my ball – but I feel like then I’m thinking about club face, arm rotation, backswing position, etc. and not just swinging. So when I think about not manipulating the club, I close it thru the ball, but when I manipulate I can get thru it better. But when I manipulate its less reliable. Thoughts?
It has to be a whip towards the direction you want to send the dandelion stem; see the “kinetic chain facilitation series” and my favourite is #6; you must let the weight of the club release you in the direction you want to send the stem; not your job to close the face. Combine this with the arc blur unstoppable momentum series.
Hi Shawn! So this task was great for me at first. I started taking a nice divot and was compressing the ball nicely. However, as with the cutting the dandelion stem and sending it to the target, eventually I become so focused on the task that my focus is at the ground instead of “out there” at the target. The result…. I start coming over the top.
Throwing the club gets my focus out at the target. But I tend to struggle with good contact.
I’m absolutely convinced that developing a skill at a task is the answer. Just struggling to find the right task for my brain.
Thanks for sharing your wisdom in golf!
Hey Jamison! The key is to not get caught up with one or 2 bad contacts and then go searching why. If I say send the stem to target MAJESTICALLY using momentum only and DON’T WORRY ABOUT CONTACT, would that not encourage you to deliver completely out there? LET THE BRAIN FIGURE OUT how the ball gets in the way as you continue to deliver the task no matter what. See “stick the finish despite the ball” series for some extra help!
Hey Shawn! I’ve been working on this all week. Even bought a grass whip. I think I’m starting to get it. But my consistent miss is towards the toe. Toe balls has plagued me my entire golf life really. I think when I stay with sending the stem/clippings to the right of the intermediate point it helps. But it short circuits often. Any thoughts for pretty consistent toe misses? I’m already setup close to the ball. Thanks!
See the “2 tee drill perpetual motion drill” and the “blur of club” and all the “arc-blur” videos; when you have a very precise view of what is going on down there in front of you, it will be much easier. Also see “predict contact” and the “goldie locks series”
Shawn do you recommend heavier shafts to increase arm club weight?
Only if you can easily whip the snot out of them!😝👍
I will look for a trail of snot, but I don’t think there is one! There are different theories on heavier shafts hitting harder etc. Just wanted to get your opinion. I would say driver swing speed is around 95. With your help, it better get over a 100!
This is awesome stuff. Reaffirming my feels and where I place my eyes for solid contact. It’s like you read my mind coming out with this update around the time I realized that putting the ball in my rear view does wonders for me.
Thank you for the great comment Jason! 👍👌
