    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.

Clement: Important video on grip! (dare we say “historic!”)

Published

We so much love being historically correct! Back when I started teaching 35 years ago, when I looked at what the top 5 coaches were teaching, I knew I had to forge my own way. Not only did it not make sense anatomically, it did not make any sense neurologically either! Fast forward to today and we talk about ground forces and how to let the hips turn in the backswing and grip? WHOA, DID THEY MISS THE BOAT THERE!!

This video really takes the cake and REMOVES ALL QUESTIONS AND DOUBT ABOUT GRIP; where to hold it, grip pressure and IN OUR OPINION, THE FIRST TIME IT HAS BEEN REVEALED IN IT’S FULL ANATOMICAL FUNCTIONALITY.

This will end all debates about the “weak grip vs strong grip” argument!

Clement: How to easily stop early extension (and get deep lag)

Published

on

Lack of maintaining your golf posture is not a defect in your system at all! Where you apply your focus determines how your body moves through the swing.

If you deliver your action to the ball on purpose or by default, you SHOULD GET EARLY EXTENSION! But you will soon realize that the action through the ball with a solid posture that maintains the “tush line” and prevents the proverbial “humping” look through the ball is a direct result of a proper focus on a very simple brainless task.
