    Had a great lesson today, working on initiating more lag by having more lateral hip before rotating the hips and using the rotation to square the club face, but still staying behind the ball and delivering more power. The ball contact on the face is another level, but difficult to get to.

    Lesson booked for Wednesday. Played poorly at the weekend but wanting to put that down to my recent health issues but just want reassurance it was mostly the ill effects and nothing to do with the swing. That and a big comp coming up next weekend so good to get a look over before then

    Re: I had a lesson today and... (rolling thread)

    Had my first lesson of 5 last Friday.. We decided on short game at a taster session at the back end of least season....

    Spent most of the time practicing the shot over a bunker with not much room to play with.. Happens a lot at ours with small greens etc.

    Great advice about using the 10 deg bounce of my 58 deg wedge, gaining confidence, not being afraid to commit to the shot.. Etc Etc...

    Used it a couple of times in practice round yesterday, great feeling when you stiff one from a position that would have frightened you to death before....

    Bring on the next session.

    Great lesson. Not too much technique changed but a lot of work done of NLP and being calmer over the shot and smoother

    Thanks for that. Wasn't sure myself. It was strange but he asked me to simply put my tongue at the base of my mouth and focus on my breathing from the chest (but not listening to it). Apparently this reduces the heart rate. All I know is I felt so calm over the ball and with a slower takeaway was able to make some really solid shots. Not sure how or why but seemed to slow me down completely. Apparently he does a lot of NLP work with is plus figure and single figure pupils so their might be something in it although I'd not heard of it. Does this "Zen Golf" book a few have recommende come from the same stable?
