Weight Forward - Using SwingCatalyst and SAM Balance Lab to Explain Pressure Throughout the Swing - Page 7

post #109 of 116
You will not get an exact pattern on presure plate technology.

The only exact match of pro swings are.

Weight has shifted to front and hips have cleared so the pro is over 45 degrees toward the target at impact.

On backswing weight moves to back foot usually on the inside.

The pro move is the start of the downswing, the weight shift to front side squares the hips and drops the club on the inside into the so called slot.

The rotation of the hips makes the hips clear so much a pro is over 45 degrees toward the target at impact.

Type of grip, lenght of backswing, follow through, etc, have minimal impact on swing speed pros have.

If you can learn to clear your hips before impact while maintaining your spine angle, you will have maximum core torque at impact.

Impact Swing is what every pro has.

They deliver the maximum torque load at impact.

Its done by a fast rotation of hips while maintaining spine angle.

My feeling is the takeaway is the hard piece to grasp,if you can get that the downswing will follow naturally.A takeaway that involves a coiling action rather than a sway and lift and tilt.A takeaway that works the upper body coiling against a lower body resistance building torque.

This doesn't add any value to the discussion.

What does either of those things mean?

I realize that you think that's the one thing that pros have in common, but I disagree, and the numbers bear that out: pros are anywhere from 20-60° open to the target at impact.

 

And words like "cleared" are ambiguous and often misinterpreted, leading to many players spinning out and not actually sliding their hips forward as well.

Almost every professional golfer swings on more "outward" or higher plane on the downswing than the backswing. And why "drop" something into a "slot" - why not just have the club in the "slot" to begin with?

Many pros don't actually maintain their "spine angle" (I prefer the term "inclination" or "inclination to the ground"). Many pros early extend a little.

 

And you're just setting everyone up for a sales pitch, Sol, and I don't care for it.

 

I've already addressed "clearing your hips" and the damage it can do.

In my experience this isn't true at all. I can put the average golfer in a great top of the backswing position and they still look like an average golfer during the downswing.

 

If golf were as easy as making a good takeaway, people would not be shooting scores as high as they do.

Nah.

 


 

I'll warn the both of you that this thread will remain on topic, and "a takeaway that involves coiling" and "let me drop a bunch of hints about my book…" aren't exactly on topic.

 

The topic is clearly discussed in the first few posts. Please stick to the topic, not branches six forks removed from the main trunk.

Weight on the forward  leg as impact is approached is undeniable ,it is a given in golf teaching.

Yep, most anateurs never learn how to transfer weight properly nor start the downswing properly.

A teachin pro I know that worked with lots of tour pros when they were young, likes to have new players work with throwing a 5 pound ball to him just to learn how a weight transfer feels.

Consistent ball striking has good weight transfer and hip rotation at its core.

The trick for instructors and students is to explain and grasp how to make the weight shift to the back foot without left hip and knee sway.

That's not exactly a difficult "trick."

 3) From ~A4 to ~A4.25 to ~A4.5 the golfer will subtly push off with their right foot, their left knee will slide horizontally forward, their core will slide their hips forward, and you'll see another little spike in pressure on the trail side.

Hi iacas,

 

Just wanted to thank you for this nugget. I've been working on key #3 for a wee while, and this description has become the focus of the 5 "s" of my practice.

It's easy to say "I need to get my weight forward at impact". It's much more specific (and helpful), to go slowly through the motion detailed above.

Cheers!:beer:
