Move Less ... Get Good!

Ross,

The Gap drill promotes a full, rotation in that I did not feel I could get the club head to the ball (and close the gap) without turning through to the target. On the course I kept a smaller gap on every swing to promote the same feeling and used the hold-turn-hips swing thought on every swing. With the driver though, I kept a big gap just as on the range as that just seems to be best for me now.

Thanks again for all you do.

Are you suggesting the gap on all clubs except driver?

Thanks

You can make the call on that... experiment with all clubs.  Setting up with the gap becomes very comforting in a short period of time.  It also seems to be removing a variable of the hands helping on the takeaway.  All this is still kind of newish... but have not seen anyone yet that has not liked or improved with it after some practice.

I had been having a problem with leaving putts short. I reviewed your putting videos which helped me focus on hitting past the hole, but I also added a variation in leaving a gap between my ball and the putter at address. The gap drill had helped me make better contact with other clubs, so I thought, "why not" for the putter. Setting up with a gap helped me achieve a smoother follow-through by not anticipating the ball strike (if that makes sense). It also kept me from leaving putts short. Anyone else tried this?

Ross, 

I tried the Gap Drill at the range today with a 7 iron, hybrid and driver and it really worked for me.  I felt my wrist was in the right position (nice and flat) and stayed that way through the baskswing without having to contort my shoulders at set up.  It also made a big difference for me in having a proper finish.  Kinda weird having the ball a little forward of the club at address but not after you hit a few good ones.  I will be making this a part of my regular practice plan.  Thanks for the great idea. [smile]

That's great georgek!  I can not think of any reason, not to play that way if it works for you.  If you think about it ... the gap drill sets up, where the club will end up anyway, shortly in to the takeaway.  It also helps lets the shoulders start the backswing, without the hands feeling the need to take control or change things.
