ALL good or bad shots are determined by impact. Increase your understanding of impact and you increase your chances of better ball striking
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.

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.
The grip or the release. The chicken or the egg. Does the release dictate the grip OR does the grip dictate the way the release works. Find out here in this video as I teach you the options you need to match up to help play better golf.
We could talk all day about impact and the clubface and where bad shots come from. Understanding and working on the 430 entry path will help eliminate a lot of those off line shots due to poor clubface control. Here's why...
Creating speed is important in the golf swing. How and When you create that speed is the deal breaker between good and bad shots. Speed void of effort- by pure physics- is the hallmark of most great players ever.
