In this week’s Impact Show, we have a special guest: co-founder of the Titleist Performance Institute, Dave Phillips. We explore ways in which you can use your body to create more club speed and hit longer drives! These include lifting your lead heel and more controversially, bending your lead arm!

    Corey Connors has a hint of bend in his left arm in the BS.

    Just plain wrong. End of lesson.

    Please start vetting these instructors.

    The first swing was a reverse pivot bail out. The second swing was a turn and hit. Much better. Folks have been teaching roll the feet and roll the arms for years. What’s new? This is old news. Snooze.

    You better use a stronger grip meaning more left hand knuckles showing.

    IMO much better to teach how to use scapula more effectively(increase ROM) rather than to bend left arm intentionally. That cuts off ROM of scapula and creates slack in DS.

    Does a shorter crow bar create move leverage than a longer crow bar?

    Straight left arm with fulcrum at the shoulder joint, is a much longer lever than a bent arm with fulcrum at the elbow.

    Not to mention this is such a better swing for your back. Why does every tour pro have back problems? Guess? Watch the swings of Nicklaus, Snead, Jones, etc.

    Bending the elbow throws a big tempo and timing variable into the swing. When I am playing well and keeping the ball in play off the tee, I am NOT bending my left elbow, Or only few slightly. When I am hitting it all over the course my elbow is bending. For my game, bending the elbow for the potential for a few extra yards is not worth it.

      I think bending the left elbow helps players with flexibility issues. If you’re able to keep the left arm straight and not come out of the swing, like they mention in the video, then left arm is preferred.

Shawn Clement: Dealing with injuries in your golf swing, lead side.

Published

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.

Getting your kids started in golf: How to grip the golf club

Published

on

In this video, Tyler Wong, PGA Director of Player Development at NW Golf Academy at Sah-Hah-Lee Golf Course in Clackamas, Oregon, talks how kids should grip the golf club.

How kids grab the club is almost always naturally inconsistent. Don’t worry about it! They don’t need to have a perfect grip to hit good shots. Hockey style, cross-hand, and other variations of the golf grip are common for kids.

Most of the time, I just want to get the hands together on the handle. I like to use the phrase “squish the fingers,” which means get the trail hand fingers mashed together against the lead hand. If they interlock, overlap or do something else, don’t worry.

Remember the goal is to get the ball airborne and forward! Worry about the grip later!
