Bounce Pass Wipe

The wipe movement is the key arm movement for allowing the body to side bend properly. At first, the wipe movement can be tricky for golfers to feel. One common sensation for a lot of golfers is that of a bounce pass from basketball. The bounce pass requires the linear movement toward the target instead of straight at the golf ball. If you are struggling with building a feeling of the wipe, then think outside the box and grab a basketball.

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:03,000
This drill is the bounce pass wipe.

00:00:03,000 --> 00:00:09,000
So this is a kind of overall feeling drill to help you get a sense of how your arm should

00:00:09,000 --> 00:00:13,000
extend and where they should extend in the golf swing.

00:00:13,000 --> 00:00:17,000
If you're doing a proper wipe which is necessary to have a good amount of side bend,

00:00:17,000 --> 00:00:19,000
all necessary to build that good flat spot.

00:00:19,000 --> 00:00:23,000
So what we'll do is we'll take a light ball.

00:00:23,000 --> 00:00:24,000
It could be a medicine ball.

00:00:24,000 --> 00:00:27,000
It could be a basketball soccer ball volleyball.

00:00:27,000 --> 00:00:33,000
But we're going to get into this good kind of body impact position.

00:00:33,000 --> 00:00:39,000
And then from here we're going to throw a bounce pass basically in the general direction

00:00:39,000 --> 00:00:41,000
of that bag.

00:00:41,000 --> 00:00:44,000
We're out at about 30 degrees down that target line.

00:00:44,000 --> 00:00:49,000
So in this bounce pass I'm going to bend both elbows and then I'm going to straighten

00:00:49,000 --> 00:00:50,000
both elbows.

00:00:50,000 --> 00:00:53,000
So it'll work something like that.

00:00:53,000 --> 00:01:00,000
So again from here I'm going to have the ball close to myself and then in order to get

00:01:00,000 --> 00:01:03,000
that downre motion I'm going to extend both arms.

00:01:03,000 --> 00:01:09,000
This is somewhat similar to what we're trying to do with a good release.

00:01:09,000 --> 00:01:11,000
So I'm going to get into that same position.

00:01:11,000 --> 00:01:15,000
I'm going to bend both arms which is going to feel a little weird and then I'm going

00:01:15,000 --> 00:01:18,000
to extend in that position.

00:01:18,000 --> 00:01:23,000
So compared to my body it's just slightly left of my body.

00:01:23,000 --> 00:01:24,000
It's not quite straight out in front.

00:01:24,000 --> 00:01:29,000
It's just slightly left but because of that side bend even though my arms are working

00:01:29,000 --> 00:01:33,000
straight out in front of me the club's not going to slam into the ground it's going to

00:01:33,000 --> 00:01:35,000
brush the ground.

00:01:35,000 --> 00:01:39,000
If I was straight up and down and I did a good white movement the club would just slam

00:01:39,000 --> 00:01:41,000
into the ground.

00:01:41,000 --> 00:01:46,000
But if I have this side bend and I do that good white movement the club will just brush

00:01:46,000 --> 00:01:48,000
the ground with this high to low pattern.

00:01:48,000 --> 00:01:53,000
And then once I have this feeling I can try hitting some golf balls getting into that

00:01:53,000 --> 00:01:58,000
same movement pattern where I'm going to get into this impact position.

00:01:58,000 --> 00:02:04,000
I'm going to bend both elbows and then I'm going to extend those arms out in that

00:02:04,000 --> 00:02:08,000
30 degree angle position.

00:02:08,000 --> 00:02:13,000
So if I'm set up to this ball and get into this body position I'm going to bend those

00:02:13,000 --> 00:02:18,000
arms and I'm basically extending my arms down out right about there.

00:02:19,000 --> 00:02:25,000
If I did that with the golf club that would look something like this and now I'm going

00:02:25,000 --> 00:02:32,000
to extend my arms out in that direction not extending my arms right at the ball.

00:02:32,000 --> 00:02:38,000
So there's that good impact position and then I'm going to bend those elbows and extend

00:02:38,000 --> 00:02:40,000
those arms out in front.

00:02:40,000 --> 00:02:44,000
This will help me get the proper feeling of this white movement and it may overcome

00:02:44,000 --> 00:02:50,000
some barriers as to the direction or the timing of where and when my arm should actually

00:02:50,000 --> 00:02:52,000
be extending in a good release.
