Ground forces- Using the ground- The swing works from the ground up- Get the inside scoop on how myself and the greatest golfers ever utilized the ground in a way few are familiar with which enabled them to be balanced and aggressive
Keeping the lower half of the body in stability and motion allows the upper body to move correctly also. Here is why the downunder board will stop the golfer from early extending and learn to use the ground better throughout the swing.
Using the legs correctly can eliminate a lot of bad habits such as spinning out and early extending. Watch how I show this student the correct downswing hip action that also enables a build up in foot resistance to help make the pivot work strongly through impact and beyond.
The Happy Gilmore is one of the first starting points to understand how the right leg absorbs pressure on the downswing. Watch this video of Sergio Garcia as he recently went full "Happy".
There is a difference between static pressure and dynamic pressure. This understanding will help the golfer gain control of their weight shift and know that being left or forward doesn’t always suggest trying to head in that direction.
Triggering the lower body to lead the transition of the swing is a key to the successful slotting of the club to the correct path
When pressure hits you during a round then it's obvious that certain areas of the body begin to tighten up and the swing doesn't flow as easily. Learn what I did with Brendon Todd to eliminate this unwelcome tension.
How do good golfers produce stability in their lower half yet at the same time create lateral movement in their legs that support and drive through impact towards the target? - it's all about the ground pressure
Knowing how to use pressure in the legs and into the ground for longer can help eliminate the need to straighten the right arm into impact- and give you much greater control and ultimately more power.
One of my PGA Tour players- Harold Varner III has a unique movement with his right foot into his follow through. HV is not aware of it and is never trying to do it. It's a result of something I explain in this video- and it may well help you.
