    Nice tip about maintaining pressure from setup throughout the swing. People out there telling people to relax, be loose, and to not have pressure ruin a lot of swings.

    Back when covid stay at home orders started I had gone looking for what could help improve my swing away from the course. At the time I came across instruction and a training aid that encouraged externally rotating the arms (which gets the elbow down like you advocate). I didn’t buy the device at the time, but the concepts proved helpful in improving my swing. If I maintain that feeling of keeping my arms externally rotated during the swing (and my upper arms to the side of my chest – not on top of it) I get a much better takeaway.

    Another area where pressure is good in setup and takeaway that helps the grip and arm to swing in good position is the left hand (for right handers). Keeping pressure in the last three fingers (like a lot of good tour pro and top instructors have advocated over time) helps the club handle low and pointing toward the golfer instead of rolling open and pointing away from the golfer. Using a short thumb (as Greg Norman called it) can help keep the pressure maintained in the last few fingers. Get setup with a mirror, window , or video camera behind you and take some practice takeaways while switching back and forth between maintaining pressure in the last three fingers, and not. Notice the difference in where the grip/handle, shaft swing, and what happens with the left upper arm?

    Maintaining pressure between my upper arms and the side of my chest stops me from going past parallel and across the line at the top, gives my arms a better and faster way to come back down, and gives me much more speed in my swing.

    Someone tape shut the mouths of the fools advocating loose and relaxed. They are just making golfers hit weaker more inconsistent shots.

Clement: How grip affects pressure and vice versa

Published

on

This video is a big one! It addresses a huge common flaw that so many golfers have at address where they are not ready to be dynamic with their target but rather are perfectly positioned TO BE STILL WITH THE BALL. This opens up a can of worms for bad contact for thin and topped shots with lack of proper divots, early extension, bad compression, and bad trajectory that can’t perform in the wind. Massively important video coming up!
