    Might be onto it at last. Once I kept a gradual build up in the swing combined with the new hip intent my cns seemed to demand an upswing. The second pendulum upswing did feel a lot different and certainly made my old action feel at the ball.

    I have tried this before but my hips were wrong so I ruled it out due to push shots. In combo with the rotation I got nice pearcing ball flight.

    My phone ran out of space but I’m hopeful. The sound of the iron strikes and feel was great.

    i noticed with driver I was taking the ball clean off the tee. I’ve never done this before. Literally I could launch it and the tea would be still there mo Norman style 🤣😂🤣😂.

    this just feels right. It’s a lovely action through the swing and feels very natural.

    As as I approach the shot the pressure on the shaft feels the left side of the shaft not right.

    ive definitely swung like this in the past but the linear hips has ruined it for me.

    ill video it and see if this is the one.

      Looking forward to the video, Gmonkey. Never thought about the second pendulum swing in the upswing/backswing before. I bet this aids your back turning towards the target or getting your arm club unit out of the way!

      My feel of the second pendulum swing on the downswing helps my arm club unit get through the ball and at the target!

        Hi guys,
        IF one's "focus" is TARGET-oriented, the "2nd pendulum" in the backswing will be AUTOMATIC?
        The circular Energy will create that 2nd pendulum as the club passes the "maximum extension to the rear"...(rear of WHAT? rear AWAY from the TARGET?)
        The swing HINGES itself going back? The swing UN-hinges itself going FORWARD.
        (notice that there's no reference to going "DOWN"???)

        So, Ron.....If you have never contemplated the 2nd pendulum in the BACK-swing? I view that as a POSITIVE that you've never had to contemplate before!!

          Ok guys just got back from Tenerife. Played ok not nearly as well as I had hoped. New swing ideas clearly not correct.

          Decided not to treat the fabulous courses as a driving range so just enjoyed the golf. Shot 14 over on this course.

          Swing looks awful but it was enough for me to get round and enjoy it. Hotel was great, free bar, free food and great group.

          Check out the ocean hole. You can just about see my ball land. Missed the birdy but a tap in par.

          Ron listen to Costa not me. The second pendulum idea didnt do it for me. Still check out this hole.

          Speak soon guys.

          Edit....Notice I cheat the early extention with a double knee bend instead of the stand. hahahha thats clearly not correct but that my cns trying another work around. hahahaha. That is even tougher than timing the stand. lol. I need to sort this.

              Ok way too much hip rotation in my swing on the backswing creating stupid amounts of shoulder turn. Can see a few things in this action and analogy.

              I can see the path of his swing reacting much lower in his body than mine.

                Ok chaps. Totally revamped my pivot. Allowing myself to get onto right side in the backswing for once. Has stopped the left leg knee problem. I pivot into the right foot now and I think I understand what the spine does. It is indeed exactly like a pichers throw. I think a bunch of us try and swing around the spine and clearly thats not whats going on.

                Finally think I have got the braced tilt down. Im definately feel the change in weight to front and feel that line posting from head through to lead foot. My hips clear upwards which is clearly what they should be doing.

                Also this feels natural to have arms out in front. I can also see now how arms can lift. My compact swing has not been a choice it has been a result.

                So all these changes has given my CNS a chance to do its thing.

                What im struggling with now is unfortunately the number one mantra of WIG. That is 'Swing to Target'. Im much more happy with 'hammer the nail into the door frame' as that allows me to drop and unload the lag through the turn.

                However im finding it very hard to reconsile hammering through with a swing to target. This now seems contadictory.

                What is Shawn meaning by 'Swing to target' because I think I may have got that very wrong in the past. If he is talking about catching the ball early in the lag release then ok. But to call that a swing to target hmmmmm. Thats more a feel of crushing the ball.

                I have definately taken a good few steps further down the rabbit hole. Its actually baffles me how wrong my pivot was.

                Anyway lets try and define swing to target because now im thinking I got that one real badly wrong.

                  Hey Greg...
                  (hi guys?)

                  Let's not confuse facts from fiction?

                  "Swing to Target" is a LAW.

                  "Hammer the Nail" is a suggested TACTIC that hopes to help you COMPLY with the LAW?

                  It's like setting out on a trip, understanding that you have to travel essentially WESTerly…..

                  But, what happens if, when you turn out of your driveway, you have to turn EASTerly???

                  If you focus on where you are ultimately going, the initial/early deviations don't make any difference...

                  Love this place and you guys
