  • Losing control...good for short game too?

    I was watching a couple of videos of Shawn's where he talks about "losing control" is a good thing. That being (as I understand it) that the arms and hands are just hanging onto the club and going along for the ride as it were, and not controlling the swing. I think it was one of the perpetual motion drill videos? Whatever one it was, the point was the arms and the hands were NOT controlling the club and I believe he stated something to the effect of (paraphrasing somewhat) "When you feel as if you are losing control you almost have it!!!".

    So my question is this: Is this same sensation of losing control appropriate and the same for short shots? Short pitches? Short chips?

    Would love to hear comments on this.

    Hi K5....

    In a word: Yes.

    dude abides

    p.s. However, I prefer "giving-up" control rather than "losiing" control.

    IMHO, I believe the biggest obstacle in that is our inherent, subconscious UNwillingness to allow that to happen.
    We're too concernedwith CONTROLLING, as we do in many, many aspects of our daily lives.

    As our Chairman very famously stated: "...Hitting the ball is NOT your job..." (part I & II)
