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.

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!
