They say a definition of Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, but expecting different results.
So it is with The Golf Swing.
I have been playing at Golf for 42 years and it's time to change my swing. The old one doesn't work - and it never has.
My biggest problem (on the golf course, that is) is my Drive. Getting off the tee. Even when I DO manage to hit it straight (which is rare), I hit it short.
I have found, I believe, a solution.
If you've watched any Golf, lately, you may have seen Steve Stricker play. There are as many different swings as there are golfers, but HIS swing is intriguing - it is simple, elegant, and (most important) highly repeatable. I have begun working toward adopting his swing - more like adapting his swing to me and my body. I cannot duplicate his swing - anymore than he could duplicate mine. His body is bigger and stronger than mine and more adapted to his swing. I may get close, someday, to HIS swing but the more important thing is that I understand the idea behind his swing and make the idea, and the result, mine.
It's a process I have already begun. The problem is I have 42 years of muscle memory to forget. And that isn't easy. I now understand what Tiger goes through every time he changes his swing.
