    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…”?

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!
