It may be counter-intuitive to some or most, but the best thing you can try to do with your golf swing is to “swing the hands,” and not the club head.
When you get caught up with the idea of the shaft or the club head, you will start doing things to try to speed them up and get out of your proper motion, and that is natural.
But when you focus on the hands, good things will happen.
I’m actually doing that right now with my SwingRite as I swing from time to time to keep too much rust from growing on the motion in the off-season.
And if you wonder how it is I can hit drives of over 300 yards without jumping out of my shoes – it’s because I make sure I’m in the proper position from which to make the motion.
This swing below is from 5 months ago, and while I likely am “swinging the hands” more now than I was then, you can see how producing close to 120 mph club impact speed and well over 300 yards driving distance back in “the lab” at TXG Golf facility allowed me to swing very quietly:
The numbers don’t lie, as you can see the distance on another drive taken from a different angle below:
I can see a little too much “club” swinging above compared to what I’ve been doing lately, and I’ll be interested to see how it translates into the ball-striking numbers my next time at the lab, but I feel the difference as I change my visual concept when swinging.
In fact, the visual I’m using right now goes perfectly with the tightened “One Major Move” concept that I showed you all in the “MCs – The Kinetic Chain” video, with the “deep” transition of the weight transfer to the leading foot.
