    I’m around day 25 of the program. I’ve applied the techniques as much as I possibly can and I’ve done extra work with body movements,arms and pressure. Going out to the range occasionally. I just find that my swing feels different..I tend to shank the ball. I’m having a hard time getting a good left arm punch with pressure. The surf movement through and out of impact doesn’t seem to happen for me easily at all even though I can do the motions great without a club. I realize it takes more practice. But I do want to hear from anyone who may have suffered similar practice sessions that It can and will get better with continued effort.

    Thank you.



    I have found that by going back to review the beginning lessons really helps. I am learning things that I didn’t learn initially and hearing things that I wasn’t open to before or just forgot. And also…..I am ok on the range but have not been able to take it to the course with consistent success yet. I am excited about playing tomorrow after reviewing the 1st 13 lessons again. I think this is an amazing course!!!!

    Good luck….keep at it…Linda


    Hi Michael – You might consider submitting a video to Team Tathata to get their input. There a many things that could cause a shank. If you want to post a video here I’m sure several folks would be willing to provide feedback as a second option.


    thank you both very much!!- I will see about submitting a swing video and see what people may think


    I’ve just completed day 35 of the program and I’m finding hard to get some consistency, I played 10 holes today and shanked a lot of my irons which also happened at the driving range during previous visits throughout the program, when I hit it it’s great but the inconsistency is a real problem, we have just come off winter mats and are back on grass and it’s worse still.

    Any advice would be appreciated.


    Pete I definitely understand. I had another tough range session today. I think the biggest problem I have is that I’m simply not completing the movements properly during my swing even though I’ve been progressing through the program I thought fairly well. I have way too many swing thoughts even though I try to clear my mind of it. It’s just hard not to think of how my arms should be pushing out, the pressure levels that I should be at etc. when completing my swing properly. It’s just very hard for me to put those aside when Im swinging. I know ultimately my goal is to not think about any mechanics at all but during the learning phase it’s hard. Then when you don’t get any positive feedback from a good shot it becomes more disconcerting and discouraging. Having said all of that I am still optimistic that I can do this because at the end of the day I’m simply trying to build a consistent swing that I can go to over and over again rather than these random tips that don’t ever get anywhere. That’s why I am sold on the program but admittedly range days like today get me down a bit
