    Only one way to start the down swing and none was taught

    I use the hip rotation to start the downswing. Focusing on hip rotation helps me keep my balance throughout the swing, AND get forward momentum on the downswing. (I have trouble sometimes with falling back from top if try the leg drive).

    Plus, a smooth hip rotation increases chances:
    * I will work the right shoulder under properly going into impact.
    * My hands don’t outrun the rest of the swing (timing).

    Hopefully I’m not deluding myself on my swing feel!

    In /4 second it takes from top of BS to impact there is time for one thought or intent.

    Would it not make sense to have most neurons, most sensory feedback working for us, in order to make the DS consistent?

    The key is in our genetic makeup. Each one of us has over 80+ % of our sensory feedback and motor neurons devoted to our face and hands. Good luck using the limited neurons
    and sensory feedback from feet, hips or shoulder. As the video below explains
    we our genetically programmed to follow intent of our hands. From subconscious preprogram in our prefrontal cortex to motor cortex connection to our spinal cord.

    it is why , Gerry Hogan calls the hands our, “external brain”

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

Published

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.
