    Alastair,

    Just watched your YT on Proper Body Release. I have trouble spraying the ball on approach shot. I get pretty solid hits, but sometimes my draw turns into a pull, or hangs out a little right on a push.

    Your description of proper body release captures much of what the 5SK people talk about in diagonal sweet spot. Anyway, I had two questions:

    1. You had talked about letting the neck rotate properly. Nicklaus used to talk about “cocking the chin” before takeaway, supposedly to allow for more shoulder turn. Would the chin cock help with proper neck rotation? Or, what does chin cock really do as far as the resulting swing?

    2. When I am hitting tee shots well, I get this sense of slinging the arms through right at impact. I’m letting the hips lead/clear out on the downswing, but I’m wondering if the slinging can lead to spraying problems. As long as the hips and torso lead, should the slinging be OK. (With slinging, I definitely hit THROUGH the ball rather than TO the ball on my poorer contact days.

    I enjoyed your YT segment. You have a clear speaking voice, and you shot outdoors but were able to prevent the irritating wind noise that hisses in background of so many of these videos. solid knowledge, and top quality production!

    yep, Alastair you nailed it on this one. 99% of us do not or cannot release properly and 98% of us do not understand what the proper release sequence is as you describe here. Stalling bodies, flipping wrists are everywhere, even some pretty good players do it.

  4. etc.

    99% of all 50 million ‘golfers’ worldwide are unable to rotate their hips, torso and shoulders in a sequential manner; they rotate everything in unison and only slap or shovel the golf ball.
    They have a rigid kinetic chain and cannot generate adequate speed and therefore cannot properly release the arms, hands and club into impact.
    What they do is try to consciously square up the clubface and fail miserably. They are physically inadequate and will remain so because they refuse to condition and train their bodies.
    The golf club OEMs exploit this inadequacy by promising performance for the pathetic, and they buy it in their desperation.

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.
