Whilst many people believe once the ball is struck nothing really matters, I will show you why this part of the swing is so important and explain to you true swing plane for better control and straighter strikes
Rotation is a big word in golf instruction- but how do we rotate to create speed and acceleration of the club whilst also maximizing control of the clubface so we hit the ball straight?
Snapping the left leg straight near impact brings a whole host of issues into not only the swing itself but also can cause injury. John Daly (above) never had to snap or extend his left leg in an effort to create power- such as other long drivers are prone to do.
Jim Furyk was ridiculed for his golf swing the moment he came out on tour. Funky looking swings can function better than truer looking swings because of opposite force and pressure. Here is what Furk's funky swing does better than anyone else has done over his career.
One of the tricks of the very best ballstrikers was to enter 430 approach with what seemed like an alarmingly open clubface and then also exit on the through swing with the clubface still open. It's kind of a magic trick that I introduce to students with the drill 1 and drill 3 combination. Watch as I show the cone drill to explain.
During the shutdown of the official PGA Tour season several players have brought their thoughts to social media. Luke Donald purchased my e-book and he sheds some light on post impact in this on the lesson tee video.
Using the pivot to overtake the release of the club is one of the greatest things you will ever learn to make your golf swing efficient and strong. In this video I explain more about the pivot and drill 3 by using the Down Under board.
Hooking can also be produced by the style of release. watch and learn how the release can impart hook spin and how to go about solving that problem.
Using the ground correctly is the ultimate way to control the longer clubs. It's not down a downward force. Tighter faster motion of the club begins with the footwork. Learn more here
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.
