Snapshot: A player with a lot of experience, Cindy thought she had to “do something” in order to hit the ball and learned to really force the handle on the downswing resulting in the dreaded “chicken wing.”
Fix: Once I demonstrated and convinced Cindy the golf swing does not require “muscle” strength, she felt “leverage” for the first time in her career. It’s pretty simple, once you allow the levers to take over, it’s very hard not to hit a good shot.
No. of sessions: 2
Result: I knew when Cindy started trusting her newfound leverage, the rotation of her arms along with the club would naturally happen.
Her ball flight immediately went from ballooning and topping to piercing arrows and a baby draw. Oh, and she’s now having a ton of fun on the course!
