WHO CAN TEACH THIS MAN ? IF SO HOW?
Once upon a time a junior low handicapped golfer met a renowned golf pro- pro seen the potential of the player volunteered advice. This was one of them. How to control the ball the most important part of the game in this instance it was only on distance not direction.
He demonstrated when the full swing is 100 yards by the pitching wedge – to get 75 yards is simple, just make a three quarter swing and play the same shot, for 50 half swing , so on,so forth for other shots .
Give it a try
As the golfer was impressed with the advice he did so during the rest of the practice and started playing the game as practiced. Rest was a DISASTER. WHY mind was more on how much the back swing is and not on target, he further realized there are many other shots that come between like 80, 90 or 40 etc even more varieties needed when the playing against the wind and with the wind. Previously he was playing with the feel, Seen the target, will result in the whole body preparing to send the ball to target There are no measurements just feel ,like the expert cook adding right amount of salt by feel to taste right . He was reasonably successful then. he has to develop all over again As he recollect his previous experience where another said just go down the grip to control distance. Result was the same. Disaster.
Golf like any other artistry is a game of feel, both direction and distance come from feel, sensation and not predetermined mechanical act Not much from the back swing is But something from inside the mind get the whole body to coordinate to hit the ball to target, if you have this feel develop it . if you do not have take another recreation .

Flimsy mind - unable to get a clear view of air rout to target and see,hear,sense,smell,taste- nothing else.
higher the elevation of the point of hit ,with no supportive surroundings , the balance tilt, hence poor execution
Yes a better shot like in the Driving range. To a mind that see only the air route to the target ,club face , ball and nothing else, all courses will be the same. Only the greens roll is different..That has to be felt by the first trample of the grass.
