Hey Shawn,
It seems that the hammer is so heavy that every part of the arms are moving at the same time whereas in other videos you said to throw there is the a sequence : the elbow first then the fore arm then the wirst then the club.

Ok, if i am getting it right the hammer drill is a good help to feel the kinetic chain engaged in response to the weight of the hammer tool.
Now, other question, is there any task where the body does exactly the same thing as with a golf club?

I did some throwing of old clubs today. The first throw was a pull naturally…The others I got on target but was not throwing as far or as hard as I could, I would say one out of ten. As I practice this should I increase effort? (As long as it’s in a safe place of course) Or just practice the feel. I thinking I should eventually increase effort as it would potentially help with distance/club head speed.

Speaking of engaging the kinetic chain… working on the driver yesterday, I noticed that it is critical for me to grab the ground well before the club reaches the top of the swing, otherwise I tend to clip the ground on the way through the shot. Am I just dealing with timing/rhythm issue? It is clear that there is a difference between the 4 pound hammer and the sledge throwing.

Shawn: I have read/watched about 4 tasks: cutting the dandelion stem, throwing the club, planing a piece of wood, gathering the puck. And I also have the concept of “until the re-hinge” and “focus on the keep out sign.” My question is: assuming that I am on the course, as opposed to doing drills, what do I pick? Or is is picking one that, for whatever reason, makes sense for that day?
Thank you

Thank you. It is raining heavily today. So I am going to an abandoned cricket field near my house. I will have a hat, COVID mask and gloves, carrying two hammers and old clubs. If the police pull me in for questioning, I will call you rather than my lawyer!!!:)

This could be a bit confusing, but I get the throwing concepts and its very helpful. However, I need clarification. When I’m at address and braced , etc to throw my 4 lb hammer, am I throwing on a line below the hammer (its plum line) parallel to the target line extended toward the target? Or am I throwing onto the target line.? Throwing onto the target line out to my left is producing a straight push.

I can do this well with my irons, and with the more upright swing of the iron it feels super natural. I can combine it with peeling the carrot and get a great result. I feel like when I am throwing the driver, my swing is now more around me, and my miss / dispersion is horizontal, vs vertical, and the result isn’t nearly as good. Not sure if I am thinking about this right, or executing it wrong?

when throwing clubs do I want to throw low or have some air in the throw or just think about the target ?

So I played a round last night and really focused on heaving the club up on my backswing, getting the ground and releasing to the target. I probably had the best round of contact I’ve had in a very long time. The issue I had was there were a lot of big push shots that ended up WAY right of target! I’m trying to hit draws and have the ball back in my stance but I’m curious if I’m either putting the ball too far back in my stance or am not closing my club face enough before putting it behind the ball. I was absolutely thrilled with my contact and beautiful ball flight, the issue is several balls ended up OB right lol!

Sorry to post this twice but the first time I accidentally commented on someone else’s comment.

Hi Shawn,
So when I use sledge hammer I can feel how the lower body needs to move up and down and turn to control the distance and also the arms hanging from the sockets. Is this pretty much the same feeling I should have with the clubs?

It took me a while to incorporate the “hammer throw” feeling into my swing, but it really clicked today at the range and I was smokin’ the ball with all clubs. Really an awesome drill and it simplifies everything. Hope I can take this to the golf course next week. Thanks Shawn.

A beautifully shot and constructed video! Very helpful as always!
The pace of your arm swing in the shots you play appears to match the speed of the body motion. To what extent does that pace of the arm swing change as the shots and clubs are longer?

Thanks Shawn. Very helpful

iantweedie30@gmail.com

Hi Shawn. Just an add on to my question, if I may please. Do you have any videos which demonstrate the additional/incremental clubhead speed (with eg Trackman figures) which comes from using different cycles of momentum?
If not, could you perhaps do one sometime as it would clearly demonstrate the correlation between the two elements
Regards

Do you have a favorite throw or progression that gets the trail arm stretched out towards the target on the through swing? I don’t even know what this position indicates but a lot of good players have it!

Enjoying the rabbit hole, thank you. Will talk soon.

Doug Wetzel

Is an early folding of the trail arm a short circuit?
