Brandel Chamblee touched on a couple of items that demonstrate Cameron Champ’s superior ability to hit the long and effortless ball; the freedom of the arms and the turn of the body. And guess what? You can’t get one without the other!

    “do this or that just as Cameron Champ does to hit the ball as long as he does”

    Is this the beginning of every other golf instruction tip for the forseeble future?

    When there is maximum power transmission there is no slack in the transmission system.
    Just as power transmission in a bicycle’s drive train requires the proper tension in the rollerchain drive.

    What appears to be width in Champs BS is caused by his lateral move toward the target during his BS(just as Ben Hogan did). It is the lack of slack, through proper sequencing of the kinematic chain, in DS that transmits maximum power.

    In this YouTube video, Champ’s right upper arm connects to his chest once his right elbow reaches his right hip. His right elbow is away from his chest in the backswing and stays open until that moment in the downswing and through impact. This seemingly contradicts your observations.

    I didn’t see in this video anything which separates CAMERON CHAMP from the other top players on the Tour .As I see him swinging ,he is very ,very flexible and has a big hip and shoulder turn with a lot of velocity in his downswing and his throughswing .Nothing different from RORY Mc ILROY or JUSTIN THOMAS or DUSTIN JOHNSON or BOBBY WILSON

    I usually like Shawn Clement, but this sounded like an advert for other videos. Nothing useful, another Cameron Champ click-bait. Jump on the band wagon boys!

    Long video for not much info. Shawn had plenty of time to actually show how to complete a backswing rather than refer to another video.

    I posted an update to Shawn Clement’s info as listed on this article.

    The information above about Shawn is a little out of date. I believe he’s still affiliated with RHGLC but his current position is Director of Development for Royal Québec Golf Club and Academy out of Boischatel, Québec.

    Cameron has a OFOS swing or a out of order sequence swing.

Lesson of the Day: Better body positions during the swing = more consistent shots

Published

on

In our “Lesson of the Day” video series with V1 Sports, we match a different GolfWRX member with a different V1 Sports instructor. It’s extremely important to both V1 Sports and GolfWRX to help golfers improve their games and shoot lower scores, and there’s no better way to do that than getting lessons. While we not only want to provide free lessons to select GolfWRX members, we want to encourage and inspire golfers to seek professional instruction. For instructions on how to submit your own video for a chance at getting a free lesson from a V1 Sports instructor as part of our Lesson of the Day series, CLICK HERE.

This week, V1 Pro Mark Heinemann for this week takes a look at WRXer Jon Hughes’ swing, offering both analysis and suggestions for improvement.

About the pro

Mark is an Advanced PGA Professional based out of Swing Studio Killarney, Co Kerry South West Ireland. Mark utilizes V1 software, Flightscope, Boditrak and Sam Putt Lab when coaching players of varied ability from beginner through to professional and also offers online coaching programs.

Video context

Looking at Jon’s swing for the first time I was very impressed and I could see that he has played golf to a high level and still maintains a single digit handicap. I felt that Jon would benefit from greater consistency and a tighter shot dispersion if he was to improve his body action. Jon’s address position was generally very sound but an increase in the amount of pressure in to his lead (left) foot would reduce his sway off the ball in the early part of his back swing. Jon’s initial takeaway involved quite a sway into his right side from which he never really recovered and got stuck behind the ball at impact resulting in a club path that was a little too much to the right from resulting in pushes or hooks depending on timing and release at impact.

Student’s action plan/Key points

  1. Increase pressure into lead foot at address, ideally 60%
  2. Reduce the body sway in the takeaway and turn around a central axis (see drills)
  3. Practice hitting fades in practice
  4. Schedule a Trackman / Flightscope session to see that club path numbers are more down and to the left, not excessively to the right.
