Yes, you heard me, one of the best drills we have is the battering ram drill. It is awesome for getting the relationship between body turn and arm swing correct, and improving your impact conditions. Enjoy the video, and hope this helps!

    Shawn,
    I am a huge fan who has loved watching your videos and have recommended them to my son and his friends. The first couple of times through I was impressed again by your common sense approach to the golf swing and your ability to relate it to other athletic and gravity activities. I was reviewing this video and was stunned by the inconsistencies regarding the second pivot point (wrists). From 3:29 on you demonstrate both the sternal notch and wrist pivot points and show a Beautiful rotational action of the wrists. Then at 3:42 you recap the wrist action and RESTRICT it to a vertical wrist cock. What Happened? These actions aren’t even remotely similar! I can easily reproduce your rotational wrist action, but trying to repeat your vertical wrist hinge = mishits + shanks! Is this just another old-school mistake that slipped in (like compressing the ball against the ground)? Please Help!

    .

    Golfers learn the swing by learning the correct intention, period. Not pseudoscience.

      You mean “mind over matter” wishful thinking? Hope springs eternal in the minds of goffers… like learning the correct intention and then magically it happens?

      In reality, you would be facing the wall, not standing laterally, and swinging the battering ram under your left (trail) armpit. Standing laterally is an inefficient battering ram…. it’s more like a ‘cradling’ action.

    Power in the golf swing derives from body rotation.
    Momentum of body rotation transfers to angular acceleration, when proximal decelerates and distal accelerates.

    TPI called it Kinematic sequence.

      Okay, but it’s impossible to teach rec golfers by explaining the golfswing scientifically. Shawn is forced to use unscientific imagery, which in large measure, is biomechanically incorrect. Why? Because the average adult golfer has the intellect of a 12 y.o. … believe it.

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!
