    Re: Two Swings

    Sometimes I'll have a really hard practice swing on a driver if I've made a Smiffy of the previous hole. That gets the aggregation out and ensures a smooth tee shot.

    All 14 swings were exactly the same.
    lol - what could he have possibly thought he was doing 14 different ways?? Madness.

    Re: Two Swings

    There is a member of this forum (you know who you are!) who would hit it much better if he used the waggle before his actual swing to hit the ball. The club goes farther back on the pre swing. I've mentioned it but he doesn't seem to be able to do it. All in the head.

    Re: Two Swings

    Practice swing what is one of those?

    Grab club from bag, remove head cover is necessary, approach ball, swing, replace club in bag and head cover if necessary, repeat another 85 (good day) to 120 (bad day) times.
    If you've been smoking something you shouldn't and you see something that walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and looks like a duck, then it's probably a dog or a bag of peas.

    I can't grasp people not doing a practise swing. I think I just do it as the most basic pre-shot routine, to focus the mind a bit. If I didn't take I'd feel like I was rushing it, and therefore be more furious if I mess one up.

    Admittedly at the back end of last year I started doing the Alex Noren thing, where I take the club to about waist height and make sure it is well behind or inside accentuating to the extreme the feeling, to hopefully try and remind me to swing inside and not come over the top. It wasn't a full swing, just a couple of little half height not even half speed swings, there was no follow through, just the take away and down swing.

    Re: Two Swings

    Played with someone I know but don't play with very often, asked him if he always paused on the top of his backswing he didn't look best pleased and ignored me, it wasn't untill after the round that my other friend who we were playing with told me he had some kind of yips on the top of his backswing and was trying hard to stop this without success.

    Well it works for Matsuyama.
