GG’s Swing Change Video Diary
As many of you might know from my constant complaining on the board, I am going through a swing change. I have never really done a complete change like this before and I have to say it’s probably one of the most frustrating things I have ever done. I do see a light at the end of the tunnel, but man is this a long tunnel!
JB and I joined Grand Cypress and included in our membership was a series of lessons. Since JB already has his game in tact (folding lawn chair swing and all) I am the lucky one who gets to use the lessons. Since I have still never broken 100 I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was to start my lessons! I signed up the day after we signed the paperwork for our membership.
One of the cool things about the lessons is the use of video. I have never seen myself swing before. I’m not going to lie, it’s pretty scary to actually see myself on film. It’s bad enough when I am doing interviews and look like a deer in headlights, but it’s even worse to see what my swing really looks like.
I wanted to share my journey with everyone here so you can see my progress (or digression) throughout the coming months. I am working with a gentleman named Harry Zimmerman and so far he is awesome! I love the way he explains things to me and I especially love that he can tell when something isn’t clicking. He immediately picked up on the fact that I am a feel player and getting too technical with me is a total waste of time. So he teaches to what makes sense to me, not just what works for him.
Along with written feedback of my journey I am also going to provide you with video. The people at Swingmodel have been kind enough to send me my videos so that I can post them here for everyone to see. Please no laughing! ; )
If you have any questions or comments feel free to leave them here or PM me. By making my journey public I think it will really help me stay motivated and see if all this talk of me finally breaking 100 can ever happen. I sure hope so!
I know this is long winded so I will stop now, but I do want to add that if you are ever at Grand Cypress, or for those coming to the outing, if you are looking for a great instructor to help you out with your game, I highly recommend checking out their Academy of Golf. They are patient, thorough, highly trained and really great at what they do.
