I’m turning the spotlight on to a blog written by my good friend George Connor. Visit his website at Connorgolf.com!
don’t be redundant
My Father always got mildly upset when someone used a redundant statement. Things like “an unexpected surprise” or “at this point in time” he felt was wasting words. You could say “at this point” or “at this time” but there was no reason to say both.
The other day I saw another teaching professional encourage a student to “let the club fall so it comes from inside the target line to the ball.” Redundant! If the club falls, truly falls, it must be inside the target line. The only way to get the club to go outside the target line would be to use the upper body to move the club there. In this case the arms and club would not be falling.
Allowing the arms to fall translates into the arms and the club swinging when the body rotates. Whatever falls and swings is no longer dependent on the hands to guide the club. Falling and swinging are controlled by the laws of motion and physics. Those two are more consistent than you are!
