“Setup and Swing Like Adam Scott”
1. Grip: He has a neutral grip, not strong to the right or weak… to the left too much, He has a unique gripping process where it
starts with the club along is left side with the club face square to the target line, the club resting on its toe and he creates a
slight concave angle between the back of his left palm and the outside of his left arm. He also elongates the left thumb down
the very top of the club’s grip, you could say it is at 12 o’clock. Next, he brings the club around in front of his body with the left
hand and arm and applies the right hand, so the line formed by the right thumb and forefinger points to the right shoulder.
You could say his right hand is strong to the right, verses weaker pointing to the chin.
2. Posture & Balance: Slight knee flex, bent from hip sockets, arch lower back, upper back straight, face matches spine angle.
Uniquely, he begins with the back of his armpits in-line with the toes of his feet, he starts with his weight favoring his toes.
This lets him feel activation of the muscles in the glutes, legs, ankles, and feet…Resistance and connection to the ground.
3. Setup: Spine tilted only about 2 degrees to the right with his head behind the ball, not over it. Left arm straight but fairly
comfortable and attached or connected to the left rib cage, and the right arm is bent slightly. This helps the right arm to
fold correctly in the backswing. Common knowledge is it should bend by 90 degrees. Fred couples bends it more than that,
he hits it long and just shot 60 on the Senior or Champions tour.
4. Take-Away: He has one piece take-away (the club head moves about 3 to 4 feet), with no hand, wrist, or arm manipulation.
As he takes the club away, he also extends or straightens his right leg some, which makes the right hip rise and the left hip
lower, increasing flexibility, so it is easier to make a complete full shoulder turn of over 90 degrees. This makes a great
brace out of the right leg and he feels the weight on his right heel, no sway in the backswing.
5. Balance of the Backswing: He rotates his left arm clockwise to the right and makes the back of his left palm flat or in-line
with the outside of his left forearm and at a point where his left arm is first parallel to the ground, the butt end of the club’s
grip, points to the target line from a down the line view…DLV and he has a 90-degree angle between his left arm and the club
shaft there as well, from a face-on-view…FOV. Note! The arms and the club swinging to the right is what pulls the left shoulder
around to well over 90 degrees, not the other way around, (long arm swing, acute angle between the left arm and shoulder.
6. Coming Down and Forward: His weight shifts laterally to the left and his right leg bends (Flexion) and aligns even with his left
knee, DLV, this shallows the club shaft making the club head arrive inside the hands when the club shaft is parallel to the ground
causing the delayed wrist cock.
7. Impact: At impact he has the back of his left palm bowed (convexed) and his right wrist is hinge back (concave). This creates
shaft lean and delofts the club face causing compression on the ball as well as a square club face. Then after impact, the left
hand wrists breaks down (releases or becomes cupped) so in the finish the back of the left palm faces the ground.
He has a beautiful long flowing follow-through with perfect balance as a result of all of the above, left leg hyperextended.
Note! New students you send me, that signs up for a series of 4 or more lessons, I offer you a free 1- hour lesson, value $75.
