The downswing takes the golfer onto the 4:30 path to impact. Get this part of the swing in order and golf becomes a simpler game
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.
Forearm strength and wrist strength not only allows the club to be released fast and late it also helps you have a better path on the downswing - It's drill one logic and where things should start for all golfers who want a better impact.
How the right arm works coming into the 430 path can play a huge role in how the right arm reacts in the hitting zone- It's a simple idea based on pitch or punch elbow position.
For the golfer who has difficulty delivering the club onto the ground and ball in a similar position - this mistake of changing your low point of the clubs delivery has a lot to do with the way the right arm works in the swing. Find your check points to better in this video
Learning to release the club from the 430 entry path opens up a host more backswing options to assist you to hit the ball correctly. There is only a perfect backswing for YOU- not a perfect backswing for ALL.....
Cupped wrist or Bowed wrist? As a carryover from a previous post relating to Jack Nicklaus and his thoughts- here's the video to help distinguish the difference and what is easier to perform for a better game
One of the everlasting images Ben Hogan left us was his ideal of opening the hips up to start the downswing. In the photo we see in real time that was not in fact the case. Here I explain why it worked for him but caused a generation of slicers who tried to follow his example.
Opposite forces are alive and well in the golf swing & it is really what holds the swing together. Learn more by watching this simple demonstration and how it blends into the way we swing the club.
You may hear the phrase "right side bend' in many instruction conversations. This is a lowering or a compressing of the right side on the downswing and into impact that helps us with our nice path and release. Be careful though. Trying to get this bend can cause havoc. Watch and learn how it works.
