Why Brandel Chamblee’s Book Hit the Sweet Spot (Reason 3)


In my last video, I overviewed what the grip looks like to send a ball to a target in Brandel Chamblee’s book, The Anatomy of Greatness. The topic this week is dynamic posture, or a setup that allows golfers to be “ready to move” instead of one that leads golfers to “be still with the ball.”

In other sports like baseball, tennis, hockey and basketball, players are reacting to a situation that is in constant movement, which lets their instincts take over. In golf, the ball is waiting, so its players need to create a situation that is dynamic so they can react through the ball and out toward the flight to the target. Enjoy the video above!

  1. Awesome video Shawn! Really wish I could have seen this video before my last round…After a couple of two-way misses I started focusing on the ball and on impact and the wheels really came off. Every attempt to fix impact only made matters worse. Your description about the ball just sitting there and inviting us to be still with it as “The Trap” was spot on! It is amazing just how easy it is for my attention to be drawn back to the ball instead of focusing on the desired trajectory out to the real target. Thanks again and keep up the great work!

  2. Argh, it pains me to say this, but I agree that the hammer analogy is incorrect and leads golfers down the wrong path.

    But since you are a prolific poster, why not explain your understanding rather than just running your mouth.
