ALL good or bad shots are determined by impact. Increase your understanding of impact and you increase your chances of better ball striking
This video is a follow up the a previous swing path and clubface orientation discussion. Now I explain how the drills in my instruction helps take care of these two elements.
How does the path of the swing play a role in the clubface direction at impact? - Learn more about it in this latest video
The brain needs swing and visuals for feedback to embark upon improvement. This hitting drill is as simple as it gets to allow the student to see and feel the correct path into the ball and beyond.
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
