In both the ‘Mental & Mechanical’, certainly in Golf, we struggle to assess and create single and repetitive motions at speed. We humans learn to crawl, toddle and walk before we amble and run. A few skinned knees and hands is part of the infant journey! The old ‘Pain & Pleasure’ balance is very real. What a ruthless teacher she is!

Over a span of about 1.4 to 1.6 seconds, a ‘Full Golf Swing’ is highly demandingly complex. If we think too much about the how and why, our ‘Cranial Computer’ shall surely stumble and faulter and even short circuit? There is always a frustrating price to pay for premature performance! Do you remember the tricycle rides in the front yard? The bicycle transition to training wheels, and without, came at a price, right? But we survived! We do not always survive the ‘Pain Of Poorly Executed Golf’! Many nice people sadly say “I’m Hanging Up My Sticks!”

Our ‘555 Golf Slow Motion Drills’ are a very effective discipline, hence we arrived logically at our process of ‘Progressive Golf’ … Putting, before Chipping, before Bump & Run, Knock Down, Punch, Pitch, Full Swing and Driver’. You are familiar with our saying ‘I Drive As I Putt’ or ‘There Is A Putt In Every Drive’! Of course, there are elemental differences between a Putt and a Drive, but over-look them for a moment? Our Putting and Driving Grips are different. Make and feel an 8 to 12 inch Putting Back & Up stroke. Stop and hold at your ‘Top Of Back Swing’. (TOB – Eyes Working and saying your “& Word”) Properly prepare and accomplish 5 of these abbreviated Putting Strokes. Think and Feel! Now, take your Driver in hand. Make one more 8 to 12 inch Back & Up swing and hold. Then make 5 more diminutive 8 to 12 inch Driver swings … Tick Tocks. Your keys to success are ‘Think, Feel and Assess’. (see ‘Finish & Hold’)

This author and his ‘555 Team’ all practise these ‘Putting and Driving 8 to 12 Inch motions. Using your ‘Open Mind’, they are soberly similar, right? Learn from your golf clubs! Importantly, the Driver Take-Away is amazingly very ‘Low Energy’ … or should be. What is the ultimate ‘TOB Goal’? ‘Dead Stopped Transition’. Why hurry wasting throttle and brakes with a ‘Driver Sweeping Back & Up’? It is quite counterproductive! Slow Back enables Front Swing Acceleration! ‘Time For A Feel!’
