    This is a joke right?? What a horrible lesson given to this young lady…. In my professional opinion, she needs to get her left shoulder higher at address and stay behind the ball at impact to launch the ball higher. She also probably needs a fairway wood with more loft as she doesn’t create enough speed to generate the correct launch angle. Telling her she needs to hit down to make the ball go up is nothing but prehistoric, moronic BS and will only cause her to bring her launch conditions down. The only correct thing he said was, that you want to hit the bottom of the ball…and IDK if he even mentioned that.

      My thoughts exactly!!!!! Look at her shoulder plane on the down swing. Instinctively we all know how to avoid what we don’t want to happen. In this case, hit the ground. Chances are she has hit a few shots really heavy and to avoid doing that again she pulls the handle up hard before impact, thus resulting in the chicken wing. You can see the point her body shifts from moving downward and she backs off the ball, her shoulders move left and she pulls the handle. Get the set-up right first!!! Also practice movement patterns slowly before adding speed. Why do we think we can do a movement at full speed, if we can’t do it at low speed first? Sr3golf hit the nail on the head!

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!
