There is a True Path to A Better Golf Swing
The most obvious things in golf are sometimes overlooked by amateur players who are seeking a path to improvement in their game. While many say that impact is everything and it does not matter how you get there, it is clear after week 3 in my instruction the foundation to good impact is a balance and swing plane. For years my golf swing has had only half of this, my takeaway is good but on transition from the top I have ingrained a steep over the top move on my downswing. It has resulted in miss-hits, poor ball contact and lower non-penetrating ball flight. Mike quickly determined I have 2 plane swing, having one of those planes right is like riding a bike with one pedal, it’s hard to find tempo and balance.
In session 3 we concentrated on staying on plane in the golf swing and following through to the target. The video clearly shows the comparison between my old habits and the fix. Keeping the club on plane in the downswing puts your both in more balanced position for impact and creates more consistent and reliable contact shot after shot. It was proven after about 10 shots that all landed on target with good ball flight and distance.
Knowing what just happened on any bad golf shot solves a lot of the mystery surrounding the game. Not knowing what went wrong on a bad shot is the most difficult question today for amateur golfers. Through instruction built around education, Mike Harbour has given me a better understanding of my golf swing and a clear path to improvement. For many golfers there is trepidation in taking lessons, we all feel someone is going to completely change everything we do and our game will get worse. Mike Harbour has found a way to custom tailor instruction to each individual and help them improve their game. After 3 weeks of instruction I have learned more about the golf swing then I have known in the last 20 years. And by the way my handicap card came out Friday of last week 16.7 index to 13.7, That’s right it dropped 3 shots.
