ALL good or bad shots are determined by impact. Increase your understanding of impact and you increase your chances of better ball striking
Connecting the arms closer to the body for impact is a surefire way to have greater control of the club and enable the big muscles to activate and add power to the release and through swing. The 4:30 path is key.
One of my PGA Champion Tour pros recently sent me a photo of his divot. Here is why this kind of divot is actually sound and true and a good indication of a proper entry and contact point.
Connection throughout the entire golf swing is not a necessity. There are however certain areas of the swing where connection of the club to the body will aid every player with control and power. Learn more in this video.
I recently saw a video explanation on how the hands work through impact. The instructor was using a training tool to show a thumbs down & up release. Lets dive deeper into some of the illusion of this and understand just what makes the release look as it does.
Releasing the club can be misunderstood. The arms rotate to impact (or just beyond) and then their job is done. Watch and learn the release and how we envision a wall at impact strike. Then we learn to "move the wall" to the finish
How the left arm works into impact plays a big role in how the right arm behaves at impact also. It's a two sided game. Watch as you show you how to use the impact bag correctly to strengthen the wrists and manage the right arm- all while keeping true loft and a downward strike on the ball.
Chicken wings are great to eat- BUT- are they actually ok for the golf swing. Watch this video as I discuss good bad and indifferent chicken wings or bending of the left arm during the swing.
Impact alignments are often confused with an attempt to look good rather than a full strong release that gets the correct impact alignments via force, pressure and speed.
There are many theories about exactly how the club should be released and what it feels like. Here is a great way to feel and see exactly how a forceful controlled release should happen.
