Impact Snap

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

My coach and I have been working on the impact position for the last two months.  I am making very slow progress it seems if I get the turn correct then my hands are late, I don't hold the lag or I swing over the top..  I have only been able to get one or two of these things correct at a time.  I have been reading a lot of Kelvin Miyahira writings about the modern golf swing.  He know his stuff but I have a hard time following all of what he is saying. He invented this tool to teach the impact position I ordered it and after twenty min.  I seem to be getting it. 

 

Has any body used it?  if so post your results... I will practice with it for the next two weeks or so then post a video of my swing before and after.

Put a club in your hand and make that move and see how closed your face is.

If I internal rotate my right shoulder, have a neutral grip, keep my right arm from straightening the face isn't closed much at all. I don't understand why you feel it would. Can you elaborate?

You are not making the same moves he is then, he is rotating his wrist too much, forcing the move. Most people have a more stronger grip, even with a neutral grip you could end up rotating to much by ingraining that motion. If you look at a slowmo of any tour players swing you will see that the back of the left wrist does not face the target at impact it is open about 20 degrees or so , the wrist is flat but not rotated that much or bowed like that.

Some of them get pretty close.  However I do think that this device overdose the move to help get the feeling.  In my case I would love to over do it and then have to back it down.  I think that maybe the best I will be able to get to is a flat left wrist and hold some lag. I will be very happy with that. compared to what I have now.

A proper down swing will take care of the flat wrist, maintain the flying wedges, proper pivot, not throwing the club at impact etc etc. You never want to force the hands through impact it will happen automatically with proper mechanics and centrifugal force.
