I finished a lesson with a student this evening and decided to hit balls before heading home. Next to me was a man hitting balls and I could not help but notice his demonstrative expressions of frustration. Well, I just had to help him. I knew he was much better than his current ball bashes. I offered my help and he welcomed my suggestions. After asking what he was trying to do and asking him what he was thinking about prior to the swing, I began to trouble shoot. It turned out that his grip was not firm at the top of his swing. I noted his right hand was not fully connected to his left hand, therefore causing a “re-grip” on his forward swing causing too much tension and poor balance. The result was a variety of shots from fat to high right and a lack of distance. The reason his right hand was not “connected” properly to his left hand was a result of him “over-swinging.” After I showed him what his appropriate full back-swing should be, he began swinging better with less tension and better balance.
The best part of this evening was I made a new friend. He was more than thankful. There was no need for compensation. It was my duty as a golf evangelist to offer my help.
