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!

    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!

    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.

      oh sorry, didn’t mean to bother you. I will just read your mindless drivel and be quiet from now on. Maybe.

Shallowing the Club: Two Moves to Avoid (Part 1)

Published

on

It’s the move we all want in the downswing… and rightfully so. Shallowing the club is a great way to put your swing on plane and really start to narrow you misses. All shallowing moves are not equal, however; in fact, there are a couple that you’ll definitely want to try to avoid because they can actually have the opposite effect!

We’ve broken this series into two parts to make it more digestible. This is Part 1. Thank you for watching!

Shallowing the Club: Two Moves to Avoid (Part 2) is coming soon!

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.
