One of the most common issues I see on a daily basis from golfers of all abilities is early extension in the downswing. In this video, I talk about what early extension is. I also show you a really simple drill that can help fix it.

    If you want to eliminate EE don’t slide forward. Turn.

    If you keep the right knee properly flexed until the rotation forwards happens ,you won’t suffer from the “early extension”problem.

    If the club is too steep coming down from the top, or the wrist cock/angle is lost from the top, the body will early extend so the club head has a chance to meet the ball. Without early extending, the club head will likely contact well behind the ball. Fix the grip, the take away with proper arm club positions and the early extension greatly diminishes or goes away.

    Ged,

    I suffer from getting club too far behind on downswing and hands higher and away from me like you say. However, when I try to keep my pelvis back and not flex forward, I find that it hurts my bad back and I don’t get as much club head speed/distance.

    I hit everything off the toe of the club. I have tried setting ball up on hosel at address, staying down longer, etc.
    Why do golfers do this? My clubs are worn off at the toe.

      Pssst… your wrists are rising in final Release and that drops the toe. It’s that or you are straightening up at the hips and knees causing you to reach for the ball. It could also be both.

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.

Here’s a response to a question on my Instagram page from Neil Riley. He asked if he should steepen the angle of attack in the downswing in order to stop hitting fat shots. In this video, I share two of the reasons why golfers might be hitting fat shots, as well as two drills to practice that will help them stop hitting it fat.
