In this video, I show you how a couple of alignment rods slipped into a couple of foam pipe insulators will help you maintain really solid balance in the swing–and ultimately help you maintain a much better spine angle during your swing. This leads to better contact with your shots and also helps hugely in ball-below-the-feet situations. Enjoy!

    Shawn… there is static and dynamic balance and they are not the same. I see obese men with pot bellies pulling back at address with a hunched spine, and no swing flexibility. Their balance during the swing is atrocious. What do you tell such golfers?

    wish this guy would take every video and condense it to half the length. he could easily make the same points without being so long winded.

      The 7+ minutes of video is chock full of information… and there is no mention of cutting dandelions and other visual and mental pictures. This is a good Shawn video… even plugging True Linkswear golf shoes.

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!
