Shark & Bake Saturday – “Getting It” vs Just Doing It

shark-and-bake-djIt’s hard to put into words what happens when you finally click on something and truly start to “get it” vs just repeating actions and motions that you’ve been told to perform.

A Pro’s Journey From Shift & Post To Floating Pivot

MCS – The Norman/Crowell Variation

???????????Here is some more insight on the work I’ve been doing with PGA of America¬†instructor and tournament player Jerry “Big Toilet” Crowell over the past couple of months.
