The first step toward learning to integrate the motorcycle movement is hitting solid 9-3 shots. The common way to start this pattern is to make a backswing to the 9 position, pause, close the face with the motorcycle movement, then proceed to start the downswing while keeping the face alignment. On a shortish shot, like this 9 to 3, you can hold the finish and accurately check how well you maintained the movement throughout.

The drill is 9 to 3 motorcycle training.
00:00:04,000 --> 00:00:10,000
So when you're working on the motorcycle, it's important to get used to having that lead
00:00:10,000 --> 00:00:14,000
wrist a little bit more inflection as you're going through the release.
00:00:14,000 --> 00:00:19,000
So 9 to 3 motorcycle training is a simple drill to get used to your wrist already being
00:00:19,000 --> 00:00:25,000
flexed at the point when you get the shaft to parallel and then keeping that wrist flexed
00:00:25,000 --> 00:00:27,000
all the way as you go through to impact.
00:00:27,000 --> 00:00:31,000
In the full swing because there's going to be a lot of pivot speed, you're not actually
00:00:31,000 --> 00:00:35,000
going to be able to keep that wrist flexed, but if you're doing slow motion or 9 to 3
00:00:35,000 --> 00:00:40,000
style swings, you may be able to keep it completely flexed or partially flexed.
00:00:40,000 --> 00:00:42,000
So here's how it works.
00:00:42,000 --> 00:00:47,000
You're going to go back to that starting position from the 9 to 3 and you can see from the
00:00:47,000 --> 00:00:50,000
downline camera angle that there's an angle right here, right?
00:00:50,000 --> 00:00:51,000
There's a little bit of space.
00:00:51,000 --> 00:00:52,000
That would be perfectly flat.
00:00:52,000 --> 00:00:57,000
If I had my normal grip and just did a one piece take away, I'll still have a little
00:00:57,000 --> 00:00:58,000
bit of angle here.
00:00:58,000 --> 00:01:05,000
Now what I want to do is I'm going to flex so that now I've changed that angle about 25 degrees.
00:01:05,000 --> 00:01:07,000
So I go from here, I flex.
00:01:07,000 --> 00:01:12,000
Now it looks like that club face has closed because it has and now my goal is to keep
00:01:12,000 --> 00:01:18,000
that same amount of flex pretty much until impact or actually feel like I increase it
00:01:18,000 --> 00:01:19,000
00:01:19,000 --> 00:01:23,000
And then as my arms extended on the way through all tend to lose it.
00:01:23,000 --> 00:01:29,000
So from the face on view, go to that waist height, motor cycle, now keep that motor cycle
00:01:29,000 --> 00:01:31,000
all the way until here.
00:01:31,000 --> 00:01:38,000
And I can check it to make sure that at this waist height position, I haven't lost it
00:01:38,000 --> 00:01:44,000
completely that I haven't re-extended that wrist like that.
00:01:44,000 --> 00:01:50,000
So I'm getting to here, motor cycle and then keep that motor cycle on the way through.
00:01:50,000 --> 00:01:54,000
This is a great way to start training what it's going to feel like during the release to
00:01:54,000 --> 00:01:57,000
have that motorcycle movement already of a curve.
00:01:57,000 --> 00:02:02,000
Now in the full swing, the motorcycle movement can either happen to end your backswing
00:02:02,000 --> 00:02:05,000
at the top of the swing during transition kind of right down here.
00:02:05,000 --> 00:02:13,000
But most guys are going to have it the majority of it started by the time the club is
00:02:13,000 --> 00:02:15,000
about waist height.
00:02:15,000 --> 00:02:21,000
So this drill gets you used to, will if I had already done the motorcycle, now what
00:02:21,000 --> 00:02:26,000
is it going to feel like what am I going to experience, how am I not going to hit it left?
00:02:26,000 --> 00:02:33,000
Because if you're used to squaring the face more with releasing the shaft vertically or
00:02:33,000 --> 00:02:37,000
releasing the shaft to square up the face, then what'll happen is if you motorcycle and
00:02:37,000 --> 00:02:40,000
you did that, it's going to go away left.
00:02:41,000 --> 00:02:47,000
You can do this either as a movement where you're going to kind of slowly pause in this
00:02:47,000 --> 00:02:57,000
transition to allow that motorcycle to happen or you can do it in a positional drill where
00:02:57,000 --> 00:03:04,000
you're going to go to that nine to three position, close the face and then from here, just
00:03:04,000 --> 00:03:05,000
00:03:05,000 --> 00:03:11,000
So this gets you to work on that lead reflection which is a key component to having a really
00:03:11,000 --> 00:03:15,000
good rotation side bend, the lay of the arms, really important for building that flat spot
00:03:15,000 --> 00:03:17,000
and building your overall stock swing.
