In this week’s Faults and Fixes, we’ll look at the issue of the older player getting the arms too far behind the body at the top. When this happens, the clubhead speed is compromised, and the ability to create height, spin, and distance is diminished. For older players, Brandel Chamblee has the right idea by wanting the left heel to raise and the arms to work themselves into a more upright position.

    I can help. Finish your turn relative to arm swing, maintain shoulder inclinations(left side bend for right handed) and have minimal lead arm internal rotation of humurus @markodenthal

      In the 0.2 second it takes from top of BS to Impact
      your thinking of turn relative to arm swing, maintaining shoulder inclunation(left side bend for right handed) and have minimal lead arm rotation of humerus?

      No human can have more than one thought or intention within 0.2 second.

      Suggest to drop into the slot the radius and the ulna are meaningful, not humerus;

    The subconscious doesnt, not do anything.

    The intent is to be have all five levers in a common plane at the top and in DS.
    Its that simple.

    We get instruction what not to do , but doesnt anyone know what we should be doing?
    Ben Hogan called it the SLOT. “worked like a charm” he said, once he discovered it.

Clement: Important video on grip! (dare we say “historic!”)

Published

on

We so much love being historically correct! Back when I started teaching 35 years ago, when I looked at what the top 5 coaches were teaching, I knew I had to forge my own way. Not only did it not make sense anatomically, it did not make any sense neurologically either! Fast forward to today and we talk about ground forces and how to let the hips turn in the backswing and grip? WHOA, DID THEY MISS THE BOAT THERE!!

This video really takes the cake and REMOVES ALL QUESTIONS AND DOUBT ABOUT GRIP; where to hold it, grip pressure and IN OUR OPINION, THE FIRST TIME IT HAS BEEN REVEALED IN IT’S FULL ANATOMICAL FUNCTIONALITY.

This will end all debates about the “weak grip vs strong grip” argument!

Clement: How to easily stop early extension (and get deep lag)

Published

on

Lack of maintaining your golf posture is not a defect in your system at all! Where you apply your focus determines how your body moves through the swing.

If you deliver your action to the ball on purpose or by default, you SHOULD GET EARLY EXTENSION! But you will soon realize that the action through the ball with a solid posture that maintains the “tush line” and prevents the proverbial “humping” look through the ball is a direct result of a proper focus on a very simple brainless task.
