Why Brandel Chamblee’s Book Hit the Sweet Spot (Reason 1)


Love him or hate him, Brandel Chamblee’s recent book “The Anatomy of Greatness” has a slew of amazing photos of swing positions of the golf greats that are anatomically sound. My goal in this video is to show you why the proper golf setup he describes leads to movements that are technically solid, as well as how to get you to feel and produce these actions without thinking about body parts. 

Let’s look at Page 2 (shown in the video) and Chamblee’s big thumbs up to Alex Morrison. We will look at three of his core areas of his teaching:  

  1. Very strong grip
  2. Narrower stance with feet flared
  3. Head pre-turned at address

Watch this video to see how these setup tips can help your game shine. Stay tuned for next week’s video where we look at the grip in detail to clear up any misconceptions so that you have the very best connection between you and the ball’s compression to your target.

  1. I understand what you’re saying with having a strong grip, Shawn, but it’s under a false pretense– the golf swing is a swing/throw, NOT a hit. If I were to throw a ball at my target from a golf address position, my hands would be in neutral and not in a strong grip position.

  2. Do you square the clubface at address and take strong grip or close the clubface at address with neutral grip – hard to understand what you are recommending? Thank you!
