WATCH: How DJ’s “bent left wrist” move can help fix your slice

Published

on

While at True Spec Golf in Chicago recently, we spoke with Rick Silva of Movement 3 Golf and True Spec Golf about Dustin Johnson’s bent left wrist position and how it can help golfers. Below, Silva briefly explains “gamma,” and how it can help your golf swing to produce straighter (and longer) shots.

    Errrrrr. no, this won’t fix the bad amateurs slice. Know why?
    Because 90% of bad amateurs who slice stand way too open to the target, where the lead foot is way back of the hind foot, the lead shoulder is also aimed way away from the target, and yet the face is pointed somewhat towards the target. So what happens? It becomes that out-in swing over the top or not, the ball has to start away from the target and then it wants to go back towards the target as that’s what they want to do with the ball, so that curve is applied. And then you add this grip to it? It’s going to get worse.
    The grip doesn’t really matter, it doesn’t matter how you hold the club, whatever you do to hold the golf club, if you can manipulate the face to be square to the direction you want to hit it, if you are lined up square too, it will make it be straighter. So you need to fix how you’re standing and align yourself properly and match the club face and path to that. Who cares how you hold it. Even the guys who hold it backhanded, where the lead hand is on the bottom can hit it straight. Where’s the wrist position for them? It doesn’t matter

    Interesting concept. Just for clarification, is the “gamma” rotation an applied torque or does it just happen on it’s own? Thanks.

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.
