    You are a role model for all the duffers who can’t break 100 playing right handed. Mehbe they should switch to the sinister side too… 😀

    Andrew, awesome display of patience and having a plan, hope you reach all your lefty goals,

    I did the same thing at the age of 51, now 8 years into the journey, need some clubs? Have a couple sets I can send you if you want some choices.

    Reply to email,

    Love it. This is awesome. It’s a solid testament to the value of playing shots that make sense for the hole. Each hole is a problem set, play the shots the help solve the problem the best. Well done, sir. Well done.

    Amazing! This is really great content and interesting to see/follow. Keep doing it and why not make some videos where you hit the range, practice etc. some as well.

    Keep it up Tursk, all the best from Sweden

    You’ve trained and played left handed before because you can’t transfer the kinematics of a right hand golf swing to the left side so quickly. Confess….

    This is insane! Highly impressive. Really fun to watch. I do suspect that the road to 90 and below will, in comparison, take forever, but I would have bet money you wouldn’t have broken 100 on the first round out, so who knows.

      With the way he’s chipping and putting, I don’t really think it’ll be that far away. He left a handful of strokes on the course that could’ve been easily avoidable, and I suspect those kind of shots will start disappearing with a little more time on the course. As long as that short game doesn’t drop off, I’m pretty confident he can get under 90 relatively soon.

Master your takeaway with force and torques

Published

on

Most golf swings last less than 2 seconds, so it’s difficult to recover from any errors in the takeaway. Time is obviously limited. What most golfers fail to realize is that the force and torque they apply to the club in the initial stages of the swing can have major effects on how they are able to leverage the club with their arms and wrists.

Our research has shown that it is best to see the golfer as a series of connected links with the most consistent golfers transferring motion smoothly from one link to another and finally to the club. Approximately 19-25 percent of all the energy created in a golf swing actually makes its way into the motion of the club. That means the remaining 75-80 percent is used up in moving the body segments. This emphasizes the fact that a smooth takeaway is your best chance sequence the body links and become more efficient with your energy transfers.

In the video above, I give a very important lesson on how the forces and torques applied by the golfer in the takeaway shape the rest of the swing. There will be more to come on the subject in future articles.
