Hands High Through Impact

When a player comes over the top, they will tend to have their hands very low through impact, when a player comes too much from the inside, they will be very high. So, if you come from the outside, then you need to feel your hands getting higher through impact.

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:06,000
This drill is hands-high through impact and this is the help you overcome the cast or the upper body dominant swing pattern.

00:00:06,000 --> 00:00:12,000
So if you remember from the early extension swing pattern, early extenders,

00:00:12,000 --> 00:00:15,000
we tend to go too much with their lower body.

00:00:15,000 --> 00:00:20,000
They tend to get the hands very, very high because they swing very much from the inside.

00:00:20,000 --> 00:00:23,000
Well if you are a cast or upper body dominant swinger,

00:00:23,000 --> 00:00:29,000
you will tend to have your hands very low through the hitting area because the club is coming from the outside.

00:00:29,000 --> 00:00:32,000
So we are going to try to kind of balance the two.

00:00:32,000 --> 00:00:35,000
You are going to try and do the nine to three drill,

00:00:35,000 --> 00:00:41,000
where you are going to try to get your hands almost on top of the golf ball or as high as you can.

00:00:41,000 --> 00:00:44,000
So the movement is going to be going this way.

00:00:44,000 --> 00:00:48,000
Now I am exaggerating as much as I can for the purpose of this drill.

00:00:48,000 --> 00:00:55,000
But that will help keep your path from going too much to the left and help you get used to the hands,

00:00:55,000 --> 00:00:59,000
feeling like they extend more down the target line as opposed to going left.

00:00:59,000 --> 00:01:04,000
It is not actually what is going to happen, but compared to what you are used to, that is what it is going to feel like.

00:01:04,000 --> 00:01:09,000
Because what you are used to is the club getting outside here and then the club is working,

00:01:09,000 --> 00:01:14,000
the hands working very much across the line through impact.

00:01:14,000 --> 00:01:19,000
You can see that they also end up also cupping my wrist.

00:01:19,000 --> 00:01:28,000
If you get outside, but then focus on holding the hands like so, it will feel like the club is continuing down the target line.

00:01:28,000 --> 00:01:32,000
But it is really arcing in on a more gentle rate instead of a more severe rate.

00:01:32,000 --> 00:01:38,000
What you can then do is you can work on keeping that back to the target as your hands come up.

00:01:38,000 --> 00:01:44,000
And that will help work on this nine to three drill on the proper path, even a little bit more effectively.

00:01:44,000 --> 00:01:49,000
Work on getting your hands high, the technical name for the movement is only deviation.

00:01:49,000 --> 00:01:54,000
And you are going to work on trying to get a little bit more of this hands high as you come through impact.
