I started using this method, maxie. I call it 'VisiPush'.
It's a simple method to focus your mind on a landing point and trying to get the swing moving to that point. I also wanted to take my focus off the clubhead at the top of the swing (to determine power) and which takes the main focus (landing) away.
I've tried to show graphically how to achieve this. In the first photo I have picked a precise point (the end of the bunker) and then make a few 'waggles' up and down (shown by the curser) to get the mouse moving on the right line. The blurring gives you an idea of how focussing on that point excludes distractions.
This next photo shows what your mind should be seeing and how fixed on your target you should be.
But if I'm focussing on the landing point how do I gauge the backswing? I found you can still 'sense' the top of the swing in your peripheral vision. It's impossible to get an exact or optimum power point anyway. If I have to take some distance off I can 'sense' the backswing to that shortened point. It's quite successful.
You see something like this...
Tempo is important, of course, but I like to think in terms of 'rhythm'. The above method seems to promote a more instinctive, rhythmic swing. My advice would be to try to swing like the real thing. Eventually the swing will become natural. In my case, and even though it's Amateur, I am happy with my swing path consistency. And now that I have consistency the miss hits can be analysed better. If I miss laterally by 20 yards say, I can tell that I was too slow or fast in my swing and make adjustments.
After watching the Genesis it appears every player has as many miss hits as I do proving the magnificence of this sim.
very true the rts-m is great love it thx ted
