These 13 Video Lessons Start with Understanding the Set Up and Grip before any other Lesson. Building a Consistent Golf Swing is just like Building a House. There Must be a Strong Foundation in Order to Grow Upon.
1. Ball Position - Everyone has different match ups and depending on each individual swing the ball positions can change. Remember to base ball position off upper body and not the feet. Stock position for irons off left nipple (logo on golf shirt), and left armpit for driver.
2. Grip Part 1 - Grip depends on match ups and release patterns. With beginners we teach everything to be at 45 or natural hang. Preference would be to have approx. 25 degree face angle at p6 (or shaft parallel in downswing). With a weak grip this would require more flexion in lead wrist. Strong grip would require more extension in lead wrist to get this face angle.
3. Grip Part 2 - Hey guys in this video we talk about different grip match-ups. Grip depends on match ups and release patterns. With beginners we teach everything to be at 45 or natural hang. Preference would be to have approx. 25 degree face angle at p6 (or shaft parallel in downswing). With a weak grip this would require more flexion in lead wrist. Strong grip would require more extension in lead wrist to get this face angle.
4. How to Set Up for Target Line - Setting Up Target Line all depends on a student's swing direction. Start practicing with props that help you determine target line and swing path.
5. Start Line Alignment - Here we discuss the importance of Start Line and shows us How to Set Up with a Proper Alignment on Aim. Remember body lines are representing your path and there are lots of different match ups.
6. Weight Transfer - Providing insight on Weight Transfer during the golf swing. Weight is often moved in the wrong direction during a swing. Stock guideline for 5 iron pressure around 70/30 into right heel at top of the swing, By p5 (or left arm parallel) downswing around 50/50 pressure, p6 (or shaft parallel) around 60/40 pressure favoring left, then push/clear left leg into impact and have 85/15 favoring left heel. Driver differs with 80/20 at the top, still 50/50 by p5, 60/40 by p6, and around 70/30 at impact. Remember though guys, if we saw you it would be different depending on the person, their tendencies, and a lot of other variables.
7. Posture - Tips on Posture in the Set-up position to help us move away from the traditional early extension swing fault.
8. Why Golf Posture is So Important - Sloppy posture at address isn't a bad thing. Most players start with a good looking posture that creates a upward jump during the transition resulting in early extension.
9. "C" Posture VS "S" Posture - Understanding posture and how it positively or negatively affects our impact position. Learn the difference to emulate swing flaws like early extension.
10. "C" Posture - "C" posture is a better position to set up in at address. This posture allows you to create space for the impact position.
11. Level Hips at Address - The pelvis must maintain a level position because the pelvis directly affects the spine. Right lateral bend is really influenced from a level pelvic position.
12. Pre Shot Routine - Everytime you walk into your golf ball there must be a consistent thought and physical pattern. Take a look at my pre shot routine.
13. Pre Shot Routine Prep - Mental Preparation for a shot routine brings consistency into your practice. Listen to some of the rehearsals that we use to help our students strategize.
