Slow motion sequence training is key to mastering the moves of the best players in the game. If you do this right (with constant feedback and monitoring through video and with mirrors) you can really see dramatic results in your swing. This kind of focused, deliberate practice is how my students and I create such impressive results.

    But there are different sets of muscles, nerves and brain activities between slow and high speed swings.
    If you want to imprint an image of the golf swing by swinging slowly, okay, but it’s not for continuous training for a high speed swing.
    If you want a slow speed swing practice slowly; if you want a high speed swing swing fast.

      Thanks for the comment! I agree and we want our players swinging Fast. In fact I love a fast tempo! However in the beginning stages of learning one needs to start slow..why? It gives you time to “think.” The goal is to get to the stage of swinging “unconscious” and letting it go! But that is definitely a process.

Want more consistency from your golf swing? Try practicing “L” swings

Published

on

If you are struggling with consistency and/or club-face control, then “L Swings” are just what you need. “L Swings” are a great way to learn about club-face awareness and centeredness of contact. They will simplify the swing process and provide you with the framework to build a proper and repeatable golf swing.

For extra feedback, I recommend utilizing a powdered spray on the club-face (see below) while performing the “L Swings.” This will allow you to see exactly where you are contacting the ball on the club-face.

WATCH: The difference between Neutral, Strong, and Weak grips

Published

on

We have all heard that “good golf begins with a good grip,” but all too often information on how to grip the club lacks personalization. In a series of Instant Swing Fixes, I will be going through all areas of the golf swing to help golfers personalize the scientific information that leads to these conclusions of how to best swing a golf club.

First up is this 5-minute show on Grip Types: Neutral, Weak, Strong and how they affect the rotation of the club. Next up will be “Face Squaring” followed by “Methods of Taking Your Grip.”

Unlocking Your Golfing Potential: Why golf lessons with instructors don’t work

Published

on

On the first episode of our new “Unlocking Your Golfing Potential” podcast series, Coach Will Robins and Cordie Walker talk about what a golf coach is, and why getting one might be just what you need to to actually achieve your golfing goals. The current model of golf instruction is scheduling a one hour lesson and letting that instructor know what you want to work on… but Coach Will explains why that just doesn’t work if you want lower scores.
