In my last video, I overviewed what the setup looks like to send a ball to a target in Brandel Chamblee’s book, The Anatomy of Greatness.

Before we get to dynamic posture and begin to talk about how to start the swing, we first need to address one of the biggest short circuits of the golf swing that I see on a regular basis on our lesson tee: the dynamic grip

Instead of talking about positions of the hands on the club, we are going to talk about the PURPOSE of the connection of the hands around the grip and what it gets us ready to do with a golf club. Once you understand the purpose behind the grip, you will get how to hold the club and truly allow yourself to perform the task of hitting shots to the target.

    No fan of Brandel… I would love to take some lessons from you in person Shawn. I’ve always enjoyed your videos. You are probably the only teacher with a full size skeleton hanging around!

      More to come to sort this out! The book is still about the body parts; but at least they are the right ones! We are getting our students the right tasks that would bring all those body parts together without thinking! Stay tuned!

    I’mvan overlapper. I’ve been told to keep the club for my lead more in the fingers, and to have a very “short thumb,” while maintaining a little distance on the bottom to make it look like the famous “trigger.” Problem is, this formation doesn’t allow me to get near as much wrist set, or lag, as I like or would need on the back swing. This clears up when I use a longer thumb. Also, I’ve always been told to keep the lead hand thumb at least mostly to the left (yes, I’m a leftie) of the grip. Any comments or encouragements would be very much appreciated.

      Think purpose not finger or hand or thumb positioning when you grip; see my “stop destroying your golf glove shawn clement” video on youtube to address the issues in the lead hand; Shawn

WATCH: How to hit better pitch shots by improving weight transfer

Published

In this video, I use technology to help you better understand how you can pitch the ball like the pros.

When pitching, you may have learned to keep your weight on your lead foot throughout the shot. That’s not always the best approach. With BodiTrak, I show you how to move your weight correctly to achieve more consistent strikes.
