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
A completed shoulder turn plays a huge role in a golfer's ability to swing the club on the correct path. Watch this drill to learn to turn.
Getting the arms in the correct spot to learn the 430 release is a visual thing as well as a function thing. This drill is not just about releasing the club- It is setting up the body so it can be primed to keep moving through and beyond.
The "Out Is Down" video I made for my YouTube channel several years still continues to be one of my most watched and now better understood aspects of the swing. Watch this new video supporting the evidence and see how it all works in slow motion.
The poorer golfer tends to have trouble hitting down on the ball. The low point of their swing is too far behind the ball due to an early release and this results in thin shots or fat shots.
It always amazes me how the students that work within the boundaries of the drills have the most success at altering their swing for the better. Here is a great example.
Getting the first part of the downswing correct is crucial to helping you hit the ball squarer and straighter. The photo of Ben Hogan has confounded golfers and instructors alike for over 50 years now- BUT I am going to show you how and why to do it.
Rotation Rotation Rotation- It's kind of all we ever hear about in golf instruction today. Lots of things rotate throughout a golf swing- watch this video to see the true rotational principles used by the greatest the game has had to offer.
Golf is a lot of opposite reactions- and typically the leg action from the top of the swing into the downswing is where it goes horribly wrong for the poor to average golfer.
The pivot is the king of the swing!!! Why? Because to keep the club accelerating the body has to continue to move, Acceleration increases speed, power, club face control and balance.
