Tiger Woods knows how to improve and change his swing. Do you?
If you go to the range and hit balls with your regular swing speed and expect to change, because you are thinking about a new movement your coach wants to incorporate into your swing, you will be disappointed at the results. It will not happen.
Because to make any progress in swing changes you must reduce your speed of the movement , so you can start to be aware of what you are doing and you can start to see what you are doing and feel what you are doing.This is critical to making any change, you have to do the new movement slowly and precisely so you know it is correct, then with lots of repetitions your brain can start to develop the new pathways of your movement patterns so it can become an unconscious automatic movement, which is exactly what you want when out on the course.
You hear Tiger saying all the time “I need to get some good reps going and that takes time”
Why not learn from the best players.
1. Be realistic, it takes time to change. Allow 100 reps before any change even begins to feel comfortable.
2. Swing slowly, in slow precise movements, and monitor what you are really doing.
3. Do as many slow motion, and correct repetitions as possible before you add any speed.
4. Be patient, it will work.
5. You have found the key to long term improvment and eliminated frustration!
