Yesterday I ran 35 off doing the same thing three times.
I would get one and two, shadow the three ball and then run four, five and six fairly easy.
Problem is there is no way I can get to the three ball, or if I crank and go for the three ball I can get it but then shoot past the boat with no hope of anything but tons of slack. If I shadow the three ball then I ripped the rest of the course.
I have run 35 once, so I was pretty excited with yesterday, but frustated with missing the three ball.
What I did notice that shadowing the three set up a great four ball. So is it my gate causing a bad two ball or just a bad two ball. Because the two ball doesn't feel bad.
I am left foot forward. 68" 2005 monza, if that helps
Any thoughts would be great
Man, I'm not even going to try to speculate on the 3 ball issue...
I will say, that I personally have my own little ways of working the kinks out and shadowing is crazy GOOD!!! I'm LFF and I do a lot of intentional 135 shadowing. This is my on-side so I try to set up a good opportunity to get to my off-side 246 wide/early. I don't even care if I shadow or get 135. My objective is to get there effortlessly! When I do what I'm supposed to do, I get there (135) so early/ wide I have no choice but to actually go around the buoy! If I don't then I didn't deserve that buoy anyway... And to push myself too hard, would just be ingraining the fine art of "scrapping" and I want to ingrain smoother more profitable techique!
So, for me I would be totally at home running the full length of the course, getting in the practice time of a full pass and not throwing sound technique out the window for the glory of 1 buoy. All the while knowing as I continue to shadow it closer & closer, -it's coming just as soon as it can.
Sorry This is of no use to the 3 ball issue! (But you obviously can run it, just like you do 1&5!)
