Using K-Vest for Pitch Motion
January 5, 2012Posted by on
K-Vest is such a great universal tool in helping golfers improve. I find it especially helpful in building a consistent set-up while we focus our attention on another task. Here I’m using it with a junior, what we are trying to focus on is creating a solid pitch motion. Having K-Vest working in the background allows the student to develop the skill of getting into the same set-up. That then provides them a greater chance of being able to create a fundamentally sound pitch motion. What it does between us is it keeps the unnecessary shatter out of the equation. Now the conversation remains on developing pitch motion as well as keeping his mind focused on the new feelings he’s generating.
I’ve found that multi-tasking this way and keeping the dialogue to what’s necessary really helps the student figure out exactly what they need to do. Ensuring that they hit the essential skill associated with a pitch motion and allowing them to add their own unique twist to the equation works best. I have yet to see any two touring professionals create the same motion. At the same time I have yet to see them not perform some of the essential skills necessary to control the golf ball.
