    Very good, hit’s my all man flexibility right on the mark. Better turn produces better result even if it isn’t parallel as I have been preached to.

    Full turn is for under 30s. End of lesson.

      Thats a idiotic comment. Did you even watch the video. He said a full turn is as far as you can turn without the arms breaking up. Its got nothing to do with age whatsoever. I’m guessin ypu are probably one of these guys that just makes stupid whiney comments to every video stickney does.

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!
