Surely you have watched videos about how to place your hands on the grip, but rare are those videos where we actually talk about the true purpose of the grip while in motion. The grip’s true purpose while in motion is to collect a ball from in front of you, release and deliver it into a flying picture that brings it to its final destination.

I believe this information is quite vital to hitting better, more consistent golf shots. Enjoy the video!

    He’s just trying to sound scientific with words like ‘static’ and ‘dynamic’even though he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

    The “grip” is always static when locked up to the golf club handls. It’s the wrist joints and forearms that are “dynamic”.

    Viewed your video twice so I could really soak in the knowledge you offer us. Good work.

    Great video and succinct as ever. Your analysis of the handgrip at address and at impact perfectly explains how the clubhead changes position throughout the golf swing.

    Nice video, Shawn, but there was one biomechanical error, but it was a small error which is negligible to swing mechanics. Overall you were spot on.

    Good vid. It’s amazing how much distance and pain-free motion one can gain by getting their release correct through their understanding of the grip.

Published

It’s the move we all want in the downswing… and rightfully so. Shallowing the club is a great way to put your swing on plane and really start to narrow you misses. All shallowing moves are not equal, however; in fact, there are a couple that you’ll definitely want to try to avoid because they can actually have the opposite effect!

We’ve broken this series into two parts to make it more digestible. This is Part 1. Thank you for watching!

Shallowing the Club: Two Moves to Avoid (Part 2) is coming soon!
