You are standing over the ball and getting ready to pull the trigger; what type of shot are you feeling? The feel you focus on to deliver the shot to the target is critical to pulling off the shot! If you are not choosing the sensation you wish to match to the shot at hand, then you are letting the architect of the golf course, your opponent, your fear or your distraction choose for you. See how critical and essential this step is to your score in this video.

    Is this about physical feel or mental feel, or both? Sometimes my emotional feelings mess up my swing. Towards the end of the round it seems like fatigue ruins my feel, particularly putting feel.

    GREAT video! I do that with putting and it works great… I pre-set my brain on the practice stroke, letting the weight of the putter contribute to a nice, clear feel and a low-effort (non-tense) putt.

    Unfortunately, I never thought to bring that mind-set to the fairway as I lack the skills to adjust the height of my flight beyond bump-and-run or, often unsuccessfully, trying to clear a tree.

    Any videos on altering altitude, esp for slower (6 iron carry is 140)swingers?

    Again, GREAT video.

      Yes it is a great video because it’s based on brain science and what happens in the brain as you focus on the task at hand. This is a ‘how to’ video and the next video is about comparing what you intended and what happened. Good work Shawn.

        Shawn always comes up with good instruction and golf swing theory based on science. Keep up with the research into how the mind/brain affects the golf swing.

Right Knee Bend: The Difference Between PGA Tour Players and Amateurs

Published

on

The knees play an especially important role in the golf swing, helping to transfer the forces golfers generate through our connection with the ground. When we look closer at the right knee bend in the golf swing, we’re able to get a better sense of how PGA Tour players generate power compared to most amateur golfers.

Master your takeaway with force and torques

Published

on

Most golf swings last less than 2 seconds, so it’s difficult to recover from any errors in the takeaway. Time is obviously limited. What most golfers fail to realize is that the force and torque they apply to the club in the initial stages of the swing can have major effects on how they are able to leverage the club with their arms and wrists.

Our research has shown that it is best to see the golfer as a series of connected links with the most consistent golfers transferring motion smoothly from one link to another and finally to the club. Approximately 19-25 percent of all the energy created in a golf swing actually makes its way into the motion of the club. That means the remaining 75-80 percent is used up in moving the body segments. This emphasizes the fact that a smooth takeaway is your best chance sequence the body links and become more efficient with your energy transfers.

In the video above, I give a very important lesson on how the forces and torques applied by the golfer in the takeaway shape the rest of the swing. There will be more to come on the subject in future articles.
