Mark visits Ben Doyle (USPGA, GSED)
The first thing Ben demonstrates is golf’s most damaging illusion. What appears to the golfers eyes (slightly behind the ball) to be a straight up-and-down clubshaft, is actually (to the observer in front of the golfer) the club shaft leaning backward away from the target.
Ben insisted that before the beginning of each swing I continue my three ‘waggles’ but also briefly forward press (from the lower body) to visually pre-set the impact position.
I spent probably the last 30 mins of my lesson in the sand (the same bunker that Steve Elkington was in on other Ben Doyle videos) making mini swings working on hitting the impact line and focusing on pressure point #3 with the three hinges.
