So I was doing this pivot drill from Dana Dahlquist today and realized after a few dozen balls that I was actually hitting my 9 iron with better dispersion, better flight and 85 - 90% of the distance that I get from my full swing. Didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Anyway, I highly recommend it.

This thread is a great resource. Would it be worth making a sticky? 

 

Anyway, I like the shadow line drill where the stick is in the ground and you have to get your hands past the shadow. The other one I find valuable, for me anyway, is how small the shoulders move back (6-8 inches) and through. I actually had good results by just thinking about the right shoulder pushing the left shoulder 6-8 inches to start the back swing, and the right shoulder pushing the left(6-8 inches) back to impact. It was a great feel for me.

Nice article by Sean Foley in Golf Digest.  Not new data - but presented fairly well.

Love this thread. The first video from Dana has helped me sort out some really horrible pull hooks I was hitting on Monday.

I have been a golf teacher for 25 years and you have to find a swing that will fit your body style and what you can do that is easy for 

you to duplicate.  There are hundreds of different swing methods out there and every golf instructor is doing their best to get you to hit

or swing at the ball in an easy to understand method.  Watch video and read books.  Try the method you like on the range. Do drills 

and remember aim at the center of the green and not the flag.  You want your misses to be some where on or near the green.

Practice your putting 40% of the time. Short game 20%, Driving 20%. Irons 10% and Pitching from 60 yards in 10%.

You can change the the percentages around to fit your game depending on your weekness.  Keep a record of your Putts per round, 

fairways hit, greens hit. sand saves. etc.  Have fun and never through a club.  Find an instructor that is close to your physical stature

and you must like him.or her.  Dirt Digger

This video highlights a swing aid - but what Kelvin is highlighting with regard to the wrist is very interesting - on how to get max lag and release into impact.

Well done video, basic 101 information for beginners.  Good to see Grant in this one.  Very much describing a pattern we use for beginners or golfers that have never hit a draw.

Gonna have to agree to disagree on this one Mike since I dont think any beginner is going to get through this video and understand more than about 25%. WHat about the video Erick just made?

The reason I posted the first video is because I think there can be too much of an emphasis on moving the torso in a way that moves the arms because it's popular to talk about the big muscles controlling the swing.  A lot of fear out there with getting too "handsy".  Can lead to players having their arms lag behind their pivot.  I was just telling my son yesterday to feel more "karate chop" to speed up his arms from the top of the backswing to impact.


In an optimum swing where everything is harmonized, the swing motion looks effortless and smooth. I've taken many lessons from Bender, little over 2 hour driver, past 10+ years. He is definitely 'arm' focused teacher. IMHO, many of the amateur golfers could use more arm swing in their swing vs. body when seeking distance. In my recent good playing rounds, I've added a bit of arm swing to my S&T-ish pattern.
