    Horrible video.Your own video shows Johnny Miller with only his right toe touching so how can his weight be on the back foot. Try teaching this philosophy to a 20 handicap and watch him hang back and hit horrible drives the rest of his life. 🙁

    Lucas…. you are confusing gravitational ‘weight’ with lateral thrust in the trail foot. Also, you must account for underfoot torque to fully understand ground reaction forces and torques created in the golf swing.

WATCH: The best way to start your swing

Published

on

When people think of how to start the swing, they often focus on the direction or shape. This can lead to a disjointed action. In this video, Martin Ayers of Northbound Golf shows and explains that instead, the best way to start your swing is to begin in sequence. This beginning sequence maintains the cohesion needed for a more powerful and precise swing motion.

WATCH: How a ball on a string can help you get more speed with your driver

Published

on

Ernest Jones had the best analogy at the time and it still holds true today: the pen knife and the handkerchief…which we translated to ball on a string. You take any object and tie it to a string and twirl it, you will experience a nice G-force pulling on the object that is tied and you will feel how your arm reacts to that pull to keep the object going. This is the feel you want to have at the end of that driver head, and the center point is the spot between your clavicles called the sternal notch. So use the ball on the string to clip the tip of the tee on the way up and into the direction you want to start the flight of the ball like I show you here and enjoy smoking that driver like you knew you could!
