    This video is spot on. Ironically I am a very straight driver of the ball but generally not the longest in my grouping. I have studied “ strokes gained” and Steve is absolutely correct. And the research supports his findings. Steve is also correct about “ steering the ball” as opposed to swinging freely. Couldn’t agree more on that point.
    What I am trying to do better is maximize my metrics on Trackamn. It’s easier said than done but at least I know precisely where my faults lie. The thing I’m working on the most is trying to relax and swing effortlessly.
    I know it works. Just not that easy to accomplish under pressure.

    I know fully well I need to add speed to my swing. The difficult part will be to swing faster not harder. There is a difference. Sprinters often train by running downhill. I need to get out of my “swing comfort zone” and look forward to more videos on this subject.

    I don’t think that is good advice. Try to hit beyond your normal swing leads to all sorts of problems. You have to play within yourself.

      More vids are coming on my research finding and will put this in better context. Agree shouldn’t just do this on course and suggestions are geared towards how you practice

      Agreed. There is a caveat to this. It only works well on certain courses. The course I play for example, if you favored distance over dispersion you would incur 4 penalty strokes on the 7 holes on the backside alone as the course is cut out of canyons, So missing the fairway left or right puts the ball in a canyon, it is lost and therefore unplayable. Short but hitting it accurately has you hitting 2 and not 3 for your next shot.

        Without seeing the course, i would generally disagree as i am a member on two of the most difficult driving courses on the tour. My mind was changed as my friend and i decided to be club champs at our respective clubs which are both narrower than Decade recommended driver fairways. There are lots of ams who are long and straight with todays equipment. He won his and i came in 2nd vs someone half my age who failed as a tour pro. I can tell you, driver is easiest club to hit and extremely intimidating if you can keep it in play. In today’s game, once you start dialing back, you lose. My point is you should push yourself. You can always dial it back if you have to. I’m an advocate of playing within yourself, but i would doubt you are maximising your potential.

    Damn, Buzza’s gained some weight. He’s been eating good I guess.

Shawn Clement: Dealing with injuries in your golf swing, lead side.

Published

on

Happy Father’s Day weekend and U.S. Open weekend at none other than Pebble Beach weekend! Whoa, cannot wait to see the golf action today!

In this video, we talk about how to deal with hip, knee and ankle injuries to your lead side as this one is PIVOTAL (pardon the pun) to the success of any kinetic chain in a human. This kinetic chain is a golf swing. Now, what most of you don’t get is that you were born with action; like a dolphin was born to swim. Just watch 2-year-olds swinging a club! You wish you had that swing and guess what, it is in there. But you keep hiding it trying to hit the ball and being careful to manipulate the club into positions that are absolutely, positively sure to snuff out this action.
