In this version of the 9-to-3, we are working on our ability to compare a static position "before" the swing to a "snap-shot" of the position as it appears during the swing. In order to do this, we are going to perform a "pre-set" of the pattern or orientation we are training; a great way to start is with a simple pre-set of impact. This could be done with a variety of drills such as impact fix, the merry go round, and the motorcycle, among others. As you advance, you can add feels & drills related to the takeway & follow-through, creating another level of challenge. Overall, this is an excellent way to build the skill of body & club awareness and hopefully, improve your ability to create lasting swing changes.

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:04,000
This drill is 9 to 3 with impact awareness.
00:00:04,000 --> 00:00:08,000
So in this version of the 9 to 3, we're basically going to take something like the
00:00:08,000 --> 00:00:15,000
merry-go-round or the impact fix or the deconstructing the arms it impacts.
00:00:15,000 --> 00:00:16,000
We're going to take one element of impact.
00:00:16,000 --> 00:00:19,000
We're going to try to bring a lot of awareness to it.
00:00:19,000 --> 00:00:27,000
So we're going to use possibly in this case a preset drill or we may just try to use that
00:00:27,000 --> 00:00:29,000
impact as a reference.
00:00:29,000 --> 00:00:36,000
So I'm going to do some 9 to 3s and I could combo this with either a take away feel
00:00:36,000 --> 00:00:42,000
or a top of the swing feel or possibly a follow-through feel but that's a little bit more
00:00:42,000 --> 00:00:43,000
00:00:43,000 --> 00:00:51,000
What I'm rather going to try to do is I'm going to basically do a preset of impact so I might
00:00:51,000 --> 00:00:54,000
do more of a merry-go-round drill.
00:00:54,000 --> 00:00:55,000
I'm working more on the pivot.
00:00:55,000 --> 00:01:02,000
I may do more of the hand position if I'm working on the motor cycle or more of the visual
00:01:02,000 --> 00:01:03,000
00:01:03,000 --> 00:01:06,000
There's a lot of different options.
00:01:06,000 --> 00:01:09,000
But I'm going to preset that's about where I want to be an impact.
00:01:09,000 --> 00:01:10,000
That's where I am at setup.
00:01:10,000 --> 00:01:18,000
I'm going to do a little 9 to 3 and in my mind I'm just going to try to compare what was
00:01:18,000 --> 00:01:23,000
my body like at impact compared to the preset.
00:01:23,000 --> 00:01:28,000
So in that one I felt like I might have been just a little bit more on top of it so
00:01:28,000 --> 00:01:33,000
that's where I'm trying to get to.
00:01:33,000 --> 00:01:35,000
That one was pretty good.
00:01:35,000 --> 00:01:41,000
So this isn't necessarily about the quality of the strike although oftentimes the quality
00:01:41,000 --> 00:01:45,000
of the strike does come up or does improve.
00:01:45,000 --> 00:01:52,000
What this drill is about is my ability to compare the reference to the movement.
00:01:52,000 --> 00:01:58,000
It's kind of like, my reference is I want my arm to be like this at this point.
00:01:58,000 --> 00:02:03,000
So if I move it through like that I could kind of take a little snapshot of my mind and
00:02:03,000 --> 00:02:06,000
say no when I went through it was more at that angle not at that angle.
00:02:06,000 --> 00:02:12,000
I'm trying to do that with multiple either the pressure through my feet or the hand position
00:02:12,000 --> 00:02:14,000
or the head position.
00:02:14,000 --> 00:02:19,000
I'm trying to do it with multiple facets kind of all at once and I'm trying to build my
00:02:19,000 --> 00:02:28,000
ability to refine that snapshot so that then when I move it on to let's say a 10 to
00:02:28,000 --> 00:02:33,000
2 I can compare okay compared to impact.
00:02:33,000 --> 00:02:39,000
Yep hands were a little bit back now I've got was a little bit ahead I've got some details
00:02:39,000 --> 00:02:46,000
based on that swing and now if I improve on those details I should be able to make a more
00:02:46,000 --> 00:02:54,000
solid strike which that was so I could because I've done enough of these 9 to 3s
00:02:54,000 --> 00:03:01,000
refining that position now when I do a 10 to 2 or even a full swing if I'm aware of the
00:03:01,000 --> 00:03:08,000
position ahead of time it elevates my ability to see how well I match that position in
00:03:08,000 --> 00:03:13,000
the actual swing and that helps me refine my pattern instead of if I start to get lost
00:03:13,000 --> 00:03:20,000
and frustrated because I just can't quite tell how I'm doing so the 9 to 3 with impact
00:03:20,000 --> 00:03:25,000
awareness will help you elevate your skill of being able to compare a static position before
00:03:25,000 --> 00:03:27,000
the swing so the actual movement during the swing.
