Craig Phase 2 Session 5

Session 5 - In today's practice session I will show you a simple warm up drill I use when my swing feels too stiff at the range. It is a must to get the legs working in the swing and to not get over mechanical/tense with your work. I also show a small recap of my prior practice session to see the differences my simple warm up made to my swing.

Hi Craig, thaks for very helpfull information in this video. What I really liked is your comment on the soft hands. On good days I can really feel the effect of keeping soft hands, especially during the transition from backswing to downswing. At those moments I can feel the effortless increase of lag, caused by the Law of Conservation of Momentum (related to Newtom's Axiomas). For me this is one of the nicest things to feel in my swing. Friendly greetings, Marcel

Awesome Marcel. It truly is a great feeling to give up some control and have better results.

When I'm working on my phase 3 reps I do find and I've always had this issue of getting my hips fully open at impact. What I tried today is I flared out my left foot and that seemed to allow me more hip mobility. Is this acceptable? I feel like my hip mobility is pretty tight with all my years of different sports and not stretching good enough!

Hello Matthew. Splaying the lead foot is fine. Take a look at Should You Splay Your Feet At Setup Video.

Craig, how much weight are you putting on your trail side with the shorter 9 to 5 swing? 90 % if doing the full swing but you like about 50% in phase 2. Am I reading that correctly? Thanks. Jim

Hello James. I am starting around 50/50 and going to about 70% into trail side during backswing.

Craig, you commented on several shots that it was a little heavy, or you had caught a little more or the mat than you had intended. When you're grading each shot to say "this set was a 9" or "this set was an 8," how does that figure into it? If otherwise it's good, and you didn't pull/push/fade too much/draw too much, do you count it or not?

Hello Charles. I am pretty harsh on myself with the grading. The goal for this Phase would be compressed/solid and within the 5 yard dispersion left or right. If I hit it fat/thin I don't put it in the win column. A little curvature here or there will be fine because at this distance you the dispersion window provides some buffer.
