    Notes on video:
    • M3 – 10.5º – weights forward (and CG forward) for lower spin
    • Twist Face – tighter spin rate cluster between toe and heel hits
    • “I don’t hit in the middle of the face!”. “CLINK” – 123/186mph 2100rpm!
    • “Right miss is okay, left miss no!”
    • “Lifty” to outside in backswing… try to keep it low back and wide thru.
    • “Subtle differences in golf swing.”
    • Arched left wrist at top for closed/square clubface at impact.
    • Speed & Control. No full out swing -85-90% of max speed.
    • Cutting ball last 2 years… before drawing ball!
    • Can’t overdo it… open chest to cover ball especially with irons.
    • Swing at 8:40 — 121/180/2108 … smash factor = 1.48 wow!!!
    • Swing at 12:07 with vicious left knee flexing up through impact!!!
    • Swing at 14:00 – Augusta 18th hole… 120/179/2725rpm for a big fade and likely an open face high toe hit too … 🙂

      Ooops… got the last point wrong where I said “… a big fade and likely an open face high toe hit…”.
      Here’s the correction taken from a previous WRX/JD/TM article:
      ““Twist Face” is TaylorMade’s new design that makes the high-toe area of the face more open and more lofted, and the low heel portion more shut and lower lofted. The goal here is to reduce the slice off the low heel and reduce the hook off the high toe. For Dustin, he seemed most excited to get relief on his high-toe miss.”
      So it was a “slice off the low heel” that we saw on the video.

When Cameron Champ describes his action, he uses one word: slingshot. This is a great description of what his action is. See in this video how his backswing is a gorgeous gathering and loading of the arm-club unit that positions itself to be collected by the kinetic chain that is the Cameron Champ Catapulting Slingshot! Enjoy!

Lesson of the Day: Better body positions during the swing = more consistent shots

Published

on

In our “Lesson of the Day” video series with V1 Sports, we match a different GolfWRX member with a different V1 Sports instructor. It’s extremely important to both V1 Sports and GolfWRX to help golfers improve their games and shoot lower scores, and there’s no better way to do that than getting lessons. While we not only want to provide free lessons to select GolfWRX members, we want to encourage and inspire golfers to seek professional instruction. For instructions on how to submit your own video for a chance at getting a free lesson from a V1 Sports instructor as part of our Lesson of the Day series, CLICK HERE.

This week, V1 Pro Mark Heinemann for this week takes a look at WRXer Jon Hughes’ swing, offering both analysis and suggestions for improvement.

About the pro

Mark is an Advanced PGA Professional based out of Swing Studio Killarney, Co Kerry South West Ireland. Mark utilizes V1 software, Flightscope, Boditrak and Sam Putt Lab when coaching players of varied ability from beginner through to professional and also offers online coaching programs.

Video context

Looking at Jon’s swing for the first time I was very impressed and I could see that he has played golf to a high level and still maintains a single digit handicap. I felt that Jon would benefit from greater consistency and a tighter shot dispersion if he was to improve his body action. Jon’s address position was generally very sound but an increase in the amount of pressure in to his lead (left) foot would reduce his sway off the ball in the early part of his back swing. Jon’s initial takeaway involved quite a sway into his right side from which he never really recovered and got stuck behind the ball at impact resulting in a club path that was a little too much to the right from resulting in pushes or hooks depending on timing and release at impact.

Student’s action plan/Key points

  1. Increase pressure into lead foot at address, ideally 60%
  2. Reduce the body sway in the takeaway and turn around a central axis (see drills)
  3. Practice hitting fades in practice
  4. Schedule a Trackman / Flightscope session to see that club path numbers are more down and to the left, not excessively to the right.
