Golf Fundamentals

The Release – Golf Fundamentals Part 1

The position of the club face at impact plays the most important role in the direction of your shots. The Slinger will only reward a square club face at the impact position. Before making any full golf swings with the Slinger this drill should be mastered. Hold the Slinger with a neutral grip and correct posture. Have a target line established. Swing the Slinger back to a waist high position. The shaft should be parallel to the ground and parallel to the target line at this checkpoint. The toe of the club should be pointed up or the club face should match your spine angle this indicates a square position. Grip pressure should be relaxed and the same it was at address. Your weight should have shifted to the inside of your right foot. To initiate the forward swing allow your weight to shift and rotate back to your left side.

The correct weight shift will guide the Slinger on the correct downswing plane. The ball will release out of The Slinger at impact when the shaft and your left arm line up. For this to happen you must release your right hand, arm hip and knee thru the impact position and into a half follow thru position. Finish with both your upper and lower centers facing the target. Your arms should finish in front of center with both the upper left and right arms connected to your chest. The club shaft is once again parallel to the ground and the target line with the toe of the club pointed up.

Club Swing Plane – Golf Fundamentals Part 2

Once the toe-up drill has been mastered you can begin making slightly larger swings. The “L” swing drill adds the hinging of the wrists on the back swing and the unhinging of the wrists on the forward swing. Proper wrist and arm action are vital to the position of the club face and the velocity of your golf swing. Hold the Slinger with a neutral grip and correct posture. Have a target line established. Swing the Slinger back ¾ or to where your left arm is parallel to the ground and close to parallel to the target line. The club shaft and left arm should form an “L”, to do this your wrists must hinge. The knuckle count on your left wrist should be the same it was at address this will ensure your club face is still in a square position if your grip was neutral at address. The grip end of the club should point at an extension of the target line ensuring the club shaft is on the proper plane. Your shoulder turn should be between 50 and 70 degrees with the weight on the inside of your right foot.
