In this video, I share two great drills that help golfers take their hands out of the golf swing. These drills encourage more rotation through impact with quieter hands to improve consistency.

      More than 60% of motor neurons are devoted to the hands. That fact has been known since the 1940s.

      No more flip flops when dominant hand leads properly.
      Have to understand some basic physiology and genetics.
      Hands are to the body as a conductor is to an orchestra.

      1951 (2nd ed., 1954) as the landmark Epilepsy and the Functional Anatomy of the Human Brain. This work contributed a great deal to understanding the localization of brain function. Penfield’s maps showed considerable overlap between regions (e.g. the motor region controlling muscles in the hand sometimes also controlled muscles in the upper arm and shoulder) a feature which he put down to individual variation in brain size and localisation: it has since been established that this is due to the fractured somatotopy of the motor cortex. From these results he developed his cortical homunculus map, which is how the brain sees the body from an inside perspective.

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!
