Hey, sorry for the slow reply. You asked this in the ebook thread but since it is a swing question, reposted here:
I'm getting a lot of pushes to the right with my driver, and when I move the ball forward to correct this, I find that I have to slide forward to hit the ball, and that is against MGS fundamentals. Also I tend to hit my 3 wood and driver out towards the toe a lot. Any ideas on this, besides the obvious which would be to set up with the ball nearer the hosel ? Thanks, as always for your help....
In another thread I posted this awhile back:
One night I decided to go hit a quick bag. I hit about 6 great shots and they started ...the "laterals". And I mean every one. Couldn't stop em to save my life. I was saved by the long grass. I made a swing and saw my club just barely graze the ball on the toe end! I wasn't hitting the hosel, I was hitting them way out on the toe. You see I was very tired, and was coming out of my mgs set and also losing my spine angle. Once I made a back to basics keep my set and angles everything was fine. So just get back to basics and start with half shots and short clubs.
So the toe hits may just be you coming out of your positions - How good a shape are your hamstrings in?
Regarding the pushes, read Kiran's discussion on it here:
The short version of this is. Your pull can become a push.[ What I mean is if you pull back too much with your right arm, you can pull yourself out of a true MGS action, and then not get back around in correct sequence ( late ) and end up pushing.
