    From [email protected] on FEET TOGETHER / ONE LEG- OFF SEASON TRAINING (14)

    A small lateral move to start the backswing is getting positive results. It feels like it is engaging my rear glute . It feels like I am more on top of the rear leg and my glut gets deeper. But the real payoff seems to be in the downswing. It feels like I can just fall to get the ground. It’s just a very subtle micro move to start the backswing. I’m very curious as to your thoughts your on this.
    Thank you Shawn #1

      Exactly!! Like I have said in a few videos, the swing is 2 combined kinetic chains assembled through a transition from backswing to forward swing. What you just posted is one cycle of the walking drill! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘Œ

    A very good target on the green/fringe can be lighter or darker gras patches.

    From Andy Sillars on Wisdom in Golf 1.0 - Part 5

    What a revelation this Wisdom 1.0 series has been. I’m in my mid thirties and have played golf for a number of years getting to a 12 handicap. I’ve always felt Ive had the athletic ability to hit a ball far and well however it just never happened and have always been on the shorter side of shots against my peers.

    After just 2 short sessions at the practice range following a couple of swing thoughts in this course I am seeing a ball flight that I have never had before.. and in a good way. More accurate, consistent and penetrating compared to my usual hopeful, inconsistent, and floaty fades.

    Thanks a million. Now to remember to throw the club at a target on the course, and not look to hit the ball.

    Wow! I love the analogy to the underhand football. I am struggling with the head of the club coming from the outside of my intended direction, which sucks the “whipping” action and makes it very hard to see any blur of the club to the right side of my intermediate target. With this drill, my downswing feels completely on plane without thinking about “shallowing” from the top.

    When the snow clears, I can’t wait to tie this drill to throwing the club! It really really takes my mind off the ball as a target. A real gem.

    Hi shawn, is there any video where you talk about club selection on chipping?

    Hi Shawn I usually use too much suction cups on feet when asked and that is detriment for a clean contact. So I look at the conversation below and pulled up walking drill and that drill I see me using that on golf course otherwise I be chicken winged

    I have some good success compressing the volleyball to the desired target. Can this be used as an actual task?

    In the transition, is there a feeling of weightlessness just before completion of the swing to the finish?

    Great video. Would you say the flop shot and short high bunker shot is done the same?

      Exactly! Flop shots and bunker shots are exactly the same technically and in the set up; the purpose and task are different; one is cutting a stem of dandelion with the leading edge of the sole of club and the other is spraying sand with the sole of club.

    From [email protected] on DRIVER POLISH SESSION - OFF SEASON TRAINING (11)

    Hey Shawn, I have been noticing that my distance seems to drop off as my clubs get longer. Today I was at a Top Tracer range, so I got carry and roll distances but no spin numbers. I hit my 6i about 180 carry, the 5i was not that much farther, the 4 hybrid 22ยบ was about 190, the 3h 19ยบ was 195-200 and my driver was ranging from 205-230 on my best shots.

    The question is what is causing the apparent drop off in distance with the driver? I am guessing it has to be launch and spin? I have a GC Quad simulator on order but it will not be here until April.

    Also I do not seem to be able to get distance with the range balls, but when I play, my distances are much longer with the Driver and longer clubs – according to Arccos.

    Thanks,

    Andy

    Hi Sean,
    what is the intensity feel of the pitch and how does the intensity feel difffer from a 170 yrds shot ? Would you say they feel the same ? (intensity, speed, impact levels)
    I assume that many of us swing with ease, but swing with a strained feel the longer the iron gets.

    I watched your videos that teaches the differences – now my question is about the similarity: how similar should the feel be ?
    Thank you
    Eckhart

      In this case, no because we are not at full range of motion of the kinetic chain. The fundamentals (our fundamentals) are the same but the pitch is not fully stretched out. Like when an eagle takes off, it has smaller beats of the wings and when the wings get to their full span, you see the spring in the flight!

      If you were to use the perpetual motion drill to cut the grass in both directions, would you have any issues doing this like in the โ€œperpetual motion drill seriesโ€?

    From Thomas Kihr on The Grip

    Hello!

    Today I realized something that would have helped me from the day I started playing golf some 2 years ago and I would like to share this – if I may – with you.
    It really starts with the correct grip – it sounds so trivial but it’s a major key.

    I was on the range today, hit 2-3 baskets of balls, not really satisfied with the results, but it was ok. When I came home I was in the mood to hit some chips in my backyard and that wasn’t consistent at all. Suddenly I remembered the “grip-videos” and started to get me left hand with the “umbrella grip” and the right hand grip as described here in the videos with the heel of the right hand on the left thumb and the index finger supporting the club.

    Heureka! I got crisp contact when chipping, the sound of the ball leaving the club face was great ๐Ÿ™‚ and the balls got distance without I was doing anyting.

    Basically it means that until now I just “held” the club in my hands and thought it it as it should be – now I recognize that the first time in my life I’m gripping the club and can feel the arm club unit!

    Took me time to realize that, but I wanted to share that with you.

      Oh yes!!! This is soooo good! Thank you for the feedback and now I have another important check up for students who say they cannot feel the weight in their swings; BECAUSE THEIR GRIPS ARE STILL NOT OPTIMAL! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸŽฏ

      Hi Anthony! I wish! Our borders are still closed for Covid and there is a mandatory 14 day quarantine for travel returning to Canada at $1000.00 per night! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ and we have a 8:00 PM Curfew to boot as well…

    Shawn,

    When performing pitch shots you mention cutting through the stem, is hammering through a door frame an appropriate task for pitch shots? Carpentry tasks seem to work better for my brain.

    Thanks
