Response to Bump
This is the first. Golden Exercise August 1979. After working on the Bertholy programs and teaching at his schools for about 7 or 8 months I still had issues with post hit divots. Too many thins. Paul did not like irons shots without post hit divots. When there were no schools Paul had me do all sorts of jobs at his house and his property so to keep me working. On this day as I mentioned my frustration he looked at me and said something to the nature of How much guts do you have?
He took an old 2 iron and a few golf balls and took me to his sand trap. He said quit when you are done. Noon in North Carolina in August is a bit hot. He came out 1/2 hour later with glass of water and asked if I was done. I just looked at him and shook my head. One hour later he came out and said I was done. I was too, red as a beet. But thin shots totally disappeared and virtually have stayed away ever since.
