After not having swung a golf club for over two months because of some surgery and complications, I was able to finally hit some balls. Naturally I over did it and was really hurting after a couple range sessions.
I went on to the golf course and just tried to hit the ball on the club face, but my body hurt bad and my successes were negligible.
It finally dawned on me that my usual swing was not going to work anymore. My golf muscles were weak and untrained and would not fire in the proper sequence. I could not bend my shafts and could not get a full swing going.
So I decided to follow the path of least resistance. A simple move ensued. I moved my weight on to my right side by moving my left knee toward my right knee so that the knees almost touch. At the same time, I start the club back into the back swing and start the shoulder turn. The resulting waggle to get started involves the right knee toward the left and the club shaft set parallel to the ground at the beginning of the shoulder turn in a simultaneous motion.
A freedom of movement started to follow. My shots started to get better and I could bend my shafts again resulting in the required distance for each golf shot. the entire swing sequence made sense to me. Plus, the resulting golf swing is 180 degrees different from anything I have ever done before.
I have not done any video yet, and do not even know if I want to. Once I practice the waggle a few times I then go ahead and swing. It becomes an instinctive move with no thought after the pre-swing routine waggle sequence.
