ALL good or bad shots are determined by impact. Increase your understanding of impact and you increase your chances of better ball striking
Covering the ball with the upper body at impact asks for a downward strike from the correct swing plane. Do you really know how to cover the ball? Watch this video to find out how it happens.
Great advice here from Jack Nicklaus about the wrist conditions and how they affect the release. There is a video to come on this also that I recently made and it really mimics the Golden Bear's advice here.
Science in golf has made great leaps in helping a student understand what they are doing in their swing. It isn't always correct however. Find out here about the release and why great players say GO when science is telling you to stop...
Many students tend to use too much body on the downswing. When they rip the hip or body too soon their arms slow down and the club never can catch up except by an intense hand throw which messes up their contact and club face direction
Trends come and go in golf instruction. We have had one plane swing- square to square- stack and tilt- the A swing- etc etc. Most if not all of those concepts have died a slow death based on wrong information. Today the trend is to rotate- rotate- rotate. Everyone is talking in golf instruction about rotating the chest open into impact. Here's why this is not so good information.
Preserving wristcock through impact is the number one factor to keeping the clubface square to the target line. Doing this consistently well is based around Drill 1- the 430 late hit and Drill 3- the pivot taking over. Learn more here in this video
Most people believe an open clubface is the root cause of the dreaded slice. But in most instances it is the fact that the clubface is too closed on the downswing that then makes the golfer cut across the ball and add loft back to the club- opening it into impact rather than closing it. Watch this video to find out more.
Ben Hogan wished he had three right hands. Most right hand golfers are right arm dominant so it makes sense to provide power from that side in the release and impact area. Many/Most people have taken Hogan's three right hand analogy literally. Here is how Hogan's three right hand logic truly works via my drill one.
Every golfer will have a dominant side. For most right handed players it's the right side- the trail side. This is great for power if the sequence is great. This may also hurt a player's power and certainly hurt their control IF the left side of the body isn't capable of dealing with the dominant side and it's want to take over.
