Many of you don’t know that a large percentage of tour players are playing with their back hand, or their dominant hand leading the swing and this series will help you understand what feel they are looking for to deliver their shots and what you can learn from them to help you feel what your lead arm should be feeling so that it does not interfere with what your trail hand is doing. Very important series for many of you!

    Seems to me, if we are to compare hammering with golf swing, the head of the hammer will be facing the target just as the back of the hand faces the target at impact in golf swing.

    If one were to draw a vertical line at the back of the ball, most of Shawns torso will be ahead of that line, not behind it. ie we dont stay behind the ball, our torso gets ahead of the point of impact, except for our head.

      I think he means the hammering starts with the torso turned away from the ball and at impact the shoulders line up with the ball.

        Then he should have said so, but he didn’t, so he is wrong again, and cannot explain any of this stuff properly because he doesn’t understand anything at all. Why did he pick Garcia? What was wrong with Phil Mickelson? Oh, that’s right, it’s because Phil drops his torso back and out of the way first before he goes and strikes the ball as his back is rolled back and bowed, something he can’t explain in this theory above.

          Proved him wrong recently, offered him evidence, he refused to understand reality and kept on teaching wrong.

        At Impact, ONLY the clubface is square to the target line. Knees , hips, shoulders are open to the target line….. SIDE ON.

    When I started playing golf and tennis less, I went to the wall and practiced backhand shots with my left (lead) hand, so I could swing right handed in golf with some control. After a month of left handed backhand hits I was secure with my non-dominant lead left hand in my golf swing.
    (BTW… do PING make hockey sticks for the Québec market?!!)

Yes, you heard me, one of the best drills we have is the battering ram drill. It is awesome for getting the relationship between body turn and arm swing correct, and improving your impact conditions. Enjoy the video, and hope this helps!
