Simple Ways to Master
1 Grip Pressure, 2 Swing Paths 3 face Angles and 4. Body Motions
1. Grip Pressure during your swing: With straight arms and a proper grip (big if), start the club away with the handle leading the club head (lag the club head behind the handle), you can only do that with soft hands. This keeps the club head outside the hands in the take-away and makes the wrists cock when they need to, automatically from momentum and then aligns the club shaft and club face perfectly and simply at the top of the backswing. takes care of 1 and 2 in the backswing.
2. Swing path or plane coming down and forward: Now if you rotate the back of your left hand down toward its fingers, (pronating or bowing the left wrist), you will shallow the club shaft and square or close the club face (about 45 degrees). This takes “very little” physical effort (about a ¼ of a pound of effort). takes care of 1,2 and 3.
3. Body motions during the swing: After a slight shift laterally to the right of the upper body in your take-away (head moves 1 to 4 inches depending on the club your hitting), your left shoulder rotates down some and then 1, 2 and 3 will make your body move perfectly without any thoughts or trying to force your body and legs coming down and forward. You will feel your hips and legs move left and back away from the target line which gives you room for your right arm to come down and in close to your right leg verses too far away from you (the dreaded over-the-top move). takes care of 4.
