    What confused me about this one is that he continues the handle. Where does one stop the grip related to the body? Certainly not 18″ in front… There’s no release here?

    Homer Kelley in his seminal book The Golfing Machine identified the action of the right hand as Pressure Point #3 which is located at the palm side of the index finger. PP#3 is applied to the club handle from the Top of Swing throughout the downswing all the way into Impact in the Endless Belt event. Homer was a genius and Alistair and the rest of the golf instruction field is catching up to.

      Don’t waste your time posting swing explanations. This is a d!ckhead gearhead website forum where adolescent boys slobber over golf toys. Haven’t your figured that out?

    If this right hand placement video affects your game it is 100% spot on. Have not even tried it yet but I have struggled with the role and placement of the right hand for years. As soon as I began watching the video l realized my incorrect right hand grip. Thanks so much. Just tried it,what a completely different feeling. Was always “flippy” at the top, instantly cured that and feels much more solid and powerful through contact.

      Your right hand has been ‘neutralized’ with the new grip. The wrong pressure has been eliminate and that’s why you have stopped ‘flipping’.
      You are now a ‘swinger’ whereas before you were a ‘hitter’ and wrong.
      The reason you feel much more solid and powerful through impact is because you have realigned PP#3 under the index knuckle of your right hand against the club handle.

    “…center of gravity of the hand…”?

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.
