00:00:06.560 --> 00:00:10.830
all right YouTube live thank you for

00:00:10.830 --> 00:00:14.190
tuning in and welcome to another edition

00:00:14.190 --> 00:00:17.430
of the live Q&A sessions these are

00:00:17.430 --> 00:00:20.340
largely for me to help support the the

00:00:20.340 --> 00:00:22.199
questions that I get from the members of

00:00:22.199 --> 00:00:25.019
my website called Smart Academy so most

00:00:25.019 --> 00:00:27.599
of the questions have been sent in

00:00:27.599 --> 00:00:30.630
previously but if you have a question

00:00:30.630 --> 00:00:33.239
I'll be checking periodically over in

00:00:33.239 --> 00:00:35.820
the chat window so if I say something

00:00:35.820 --> 00:00:38.040
that piques your interest and you want

00:00:38.040 --> 00:00:38.940
to know about it

00:00:38.940 --> 00:00:40.680
type in there and I'll do my best to get

00:00:40.680 --> 00:00:44.280
to it now I did have a good number of

00:00:44.280 --> 00:00:47.940
questions this time so I am not quite

00:00:47.940 --> 00:00:49.800
sure how many of the chat questions I'll

00:00:49.800 --> 00:00:54.360
be able to get to but the I like to

00:00:54.360 --> 00:00:55.680
break him into themes based on the

00:00:55.680 --> 00:00:57.780
questions or these Facebook live events

00:00:57.780 --> 00:00:59.550
I like to break him into themes based on

00:00:59.550 --> 00:01:03.359
the questions that I get and it seemed

00:01:03.359 --> 00:01:05.100
like a lot of the questions this time

00:01:05.100 --> 00:01:07.049
we're revolving around taking the get

00:01:07.049 --> 00:01:10.200
your game from the range to the course

00:01:10.200 --> 00:01:13.049
so taking the your game from the driving

00:01:13.049 --> 00:01:15.509
range or just your stock swing and then

00:01:15.509 --> 00:01:17.189
being able to perform either under

00:01:17.189 --> 00:01:20.790
pressure or just on the course so I'll

00:01:20.790 --> 00:01:23.009
jump into some of these questions first

00:01:23.009 --> 00:01:26.939
question I had was from David he he was

00:01:26.939 --> 00:01:29.189
asking what happens to your body under

00:01:29.189 --> 00:01:31.970
pressure so why is it that you can shoot

00:01:31.970 --> 00:01:35.070
72 with some of your friends but then

00:01:35.070 --> 00:01:36.630
you get determined and it's hard to

00:01:36.630 --> 00:01:41.340
break 80 right so in general the what

00:01:41.340 --> 00:01:42.899
happens under pressure is your stress

00:01:42.899 --> 00:01:45.509
response alright and when you when you

00:01:45.509 --> 00:01:47.310
have get put in a stressful environment

00:01:47.310 --> 00:01:51.200
you get some Hornet hormone adaptations

00:01:51.200 --> 00:02:01.799
and I get so real quick I I sent a chat

00:02:01.799 --> 00:02:04.110
right before I got started but in case

00:02:04.110 --> 00:02:05.850
you didn't get it please introduce

00:02:05.850 --> 00:02:08.069
yourself when you ask a question all

00:02:08.069 --> 00:02:10.509
it'll help me know who was talking

00:02:10.509 --> 00:02:13.090
and prioritize what to do anyway back to

00:02:13.090 --> 00:02:15.909
Davis question so getting under pressure

00:02:15.909 --> 00:02:18.790
you get a hormone response you get more

00:02:18.790 --> 00:02:20.680
blood flow going to your core muscles

00:02:20.680 --> 00:02:22.510
than the muscles that are designed to

00:02:22.510 --> 00:02:25.090
either fight or flight and help you run

00:02:25.090 --> 00:02:27.220
away from stuff and you get less blood

00:02:27.220 --> 00:02:28.810
flow going to your arms and your

00:02:28.810 --> 00:02:32.079
forearms you under under stress you

00:02:32.079 --> 00:02:33.780
rarely would need you know

00:02:33.780 --> 00:02:36.099
evolutionarily you would need wouldn't

00:02:36.099 --> 00:02:38.049
need a whole lot of fine motor skills so

00:02:38.049 --> 00:02:40.450
typically what will happen is your

00:02:40.450 --> 00:02:42.819
forearm movements will become more

00:02:42.819 --> 00:02:46.030
robotic a little bit and your core

00:02:46.030 --> 00:02:49.389
muscles your power sources will tend to

00:02:49.389 --> 00:02:52.389
get amplified so let's a couple of

00:02:52.389 --> 00:02:54.430
common scenarios one would be like early

00:02:54.430 --> 00:02:56.319
extension and two would be like an upper

00:02:56.319 --> 00:03:00.489
body spin so in early extension I have

00:03:00.489 --> 00:03:03.519
to time the the flip and my upper body

00:03:03.519 --> 00:03:05.049
is gonna back away from the golf ball

00:03:05.049 --> 00:03:07.720
well under pressure my core muscles are

00:03:07.720 --> 00:03:10.780
going to pull me a little bit more or a

00:03:10.780 --> 00:03:12.670
little further away from the golf ball

00:03:12.670 --> 00:03:14.769
or it might pull at a slightly different

00:03:14.769 --> 00:03:17.139
timing because now there's more blood

00:03:17.139 --> 00:03:20.290
flow going to that part of my body so

00:03:20.290 --> 00:03:23.739
that puts more of a let's say timing

00:03:23.739 --> 00:03:25.660
component to the exact timing of when I

00:03:25.660 --> 00:03:29.500
flip in order to control low point and

00:03:29.500 --> 00:03:32.079
so what can happen under pressure is you

00:03:32.079 --> 00:03:33.699
start to have a little bit of poor

00:03:33.699 --> 00:03:36.099
performance because you have these these

00:03:36.099 --> 00:03:37.690
things that are now slightly out of

00:03:37.690 --> 00:03:39.459
sequence instead of working well

00:03:39.459 --> 00:03:40.870
together like they were doing when you

00:03:40.870 --> 00:03:44.139
were in rhythm on the range basically

00:03:44.139 --> 00:03:46.150
when you're in rhythm on the range all

00:03:46.150 --> 00:03:48.099
that means is that the timing of your

00:03:48.099 --> 00:03:50.739
movements are matching up so that you're

00:03:50.739 --> 00:03:52.449
pretty precise with where you're

00:03:52.449 --> 00:03:56.709
controlling the bottom but when you get

00:03:56.709 --> 00:03:59.139
on the course some of those timings can

00:03:59.139 --> 00:04:00.669
change and so that's part of the reason

00:04:00.669 --> 00:04:04.150
why we train more of a centered location

00:04:04.150 --> 00:04:05.889
of your pivot and earlier closing the

00:04:05.889 --> 00:04:08.109
clubface because that doesn't take

00:04:08.109 --> 00:04:12.250
nearly as much timing as that does and

00:04:12.250 --> 00:04:15.819
so if I do that motion which usually

00:04:15.819 --> 00:04:17.859
accompanies early extension I do that

00:04:17.859 --> 00:04:20.590
motion down at the bottom I'm gonna have

00:04:20.590 --> 00:04:22.770
fat shots thin shot so I could have

00:04:22.770 --> 00:04:24.540
heel-toe depending on what's going on

00:04:24.540 --> 00:04:27.030
with my body or what's going on with my

00:04:27.030 --> 00:04:29.270
shoulders so it creates more

00:04:29.270 --> 00:04:32.190
inconsistency and then you get nervous

00:04:32.190 --> 00:04:34.889
on top of being stressed and that

00:04:34.889 --> 00:04:37.770
typically causes you to do it even worse

00:04:37.770 --> 00:04:40.350
and then what happens is usually you

00:04:40.350 --> 00:04:43.710
have a few bad holes you burn off kind

00:04:43.710 --> 00:04:45.660
of that nervous energy your your body

00:04:45.660 --> 00:04:48.150
starts to come back down and then you

00:04:48.150 --> 00:04:51.840
play well and you save the round the

00:04:51.840 --> 00:04:53.669
other option would be golfers who are a

00:04:53.669 --> 00:04:55.470
little bit more of an upper body lunge

00:04:55.470 --> 00:04:58.020
and pull right and then they have to

00:04:58.020 --> 00:05:01.560
bend in chicken wing like this well what

00:05:01.560 --> 00:05:03.479
can happen is under pressure they either

00:05:03.479 --> 00:05:05.280
pull a little sooner because of the

00:05:05.280 --> 00:05:07.080
increased blood flow or they pull a

00:05:07.080 --> 00:05:10.260
little harder which causes their their

00:05:10.260 --> 00:05:11.820
chicken wing to happen a little bit

00:05:11.820 --> 00:05:15.479
later and that combination causes just

00:05:15.479 --> 00:05:17.669
as many contact wrong so that's the

00:05:17.669 --> 00:05:19.800
general recipe as to why your ball

00:05:19.800 --> 00:05:22.370
striking would get worse under pressure

00:05:22.370 --> 00:05:27.510
now we can we can look at situations

00:05:27.510 --> 00:05:30.349
like David also asked about JB Holmes

00:05:30.349 --> 00:05:32.760
you know having that four minutes in

00:05:32.760 --> 00:05:38.580
between the his shots on Sunday I what

00:05:38.580 --> 00:05:40.349
can happen is when you start going into

00:05:40.349 --> 00:05:43.260
that stress response you can either have

00:05:43.260 --> 00:05:46.169
what we call an upward spiral where you

00:05:46.169 --> 00:05:48.810
start building a whole lot of anxiety or

00:05:48.810 --> 00:05:51.000
you have a downward spiral where you

00:05:51.000 --> 00:05:52.710
start building a whole lot of doom and

00:05:52.710 --> 00:05:54.419
gloom this is never going to work

00:05:54.419 --> 00:06:00.330
and the there's a whole section just in

00:06:00.330 --> 00:06:03.060
front of your spine these are these

00:06:03.060 --> 00:06:05.789
nerve ganglion and their whole job is to

00:06:05.789 --> 00:06:09.660
help you physically manifest emotions so

00:06:09.660 --> 00:06:13.199
like for example the classic one is

00:06:13.199 --> 00:06:15.389
someone who is depressed isn't going to

00:06:15.389 --> 00:06:17.460
be walking around with their chest out

00:06:17.460 --> 00:06:19.650
right they're going to typically walk

00:06:19.650 --> 00:06:22.830
around with their chest depressed and

00:06:22.830 --> 00:06:24.889
taking kind of short shallow breaths

00:06:24.889 --> 00:06:29.160
well there are physical relationships to

00:06:29.160 --> 00:06:30.320
each emotion

00:06:30.320 --> 00:06:32.660
and so if you have different emotional

00:06:32.660 --> 00:06:34.910
control on the range as you do on the

00:06:34.910 --> 00:06:37.280
course that can change some of the

00:06:37.280 --> 00:06:38.750
geometry and when we're dealing with a

00:06:38.750 --> 00:06:40.060
sport where the object is moving

00:06:40.060 --> 00:06:43.310
100-plus miles an hour and the

00:06:43.310 --> 00:06:45.170
difference between a good shot is one

00:06:45.170 --> 00:06:47.870
degree or two degrees of face angle now

00:06:47.870 --> 00:06:49.550
you start changing these big body

00:06:49.550 --> 00:06:52.190
movements and you're gonna get less

00:06:52.190 --> 00:06:54.320
consistent in JB Holmes's case I think

00:06:54.320 --> 00:06:56.030
he just kind of got into one of those

00:06:56.030 --> 00:06:58.970
spirals and started stopped or started

00:06:58.970 --> 00:07:02.000
to kind of overthinking himself and

00:07:02.000 --> 00:07:07.550
that'll transition us to one of another

00:07:07.550 --> 00:07:11.840
question that I had which is relating to

00:07:11.840 --> 00:07:14.030
what you should think about more when

00:07:14.030 --> 00:07:15.200
you're on the course like should you

00:07:15.200 --> 00:07:17.870
focus on certain body parts and that

00:07:17.870 --> 00:07:20.930
question came from Sharon she was asking

00:07:20.930 --> 00:07:23.020
basically how much awareness to specific

00:07:23.020 --> 00:07:25.940
muscles in the kinematic sequence should

00:07:25.940 --> 00:07:27.650
you have and should that change from

00:07:27.650 --> 00:07:31.640
practice to playing so when you're

00:07:31.640 --> 00:07:35.450
there's there's a simple little path as

00:07:35.450 --> 00:07:40.250
far as what's going on during the round

00:07:40.250 --> 00:07:41.620
of golf right you're gonna have

00:07:41.620 --> 00:07:43.400
everybody's describing them differently

00:07:43.400 --> 00:07:45.740
I talked about it in my book Pia and

00:07:45.740 --> 00:07:47.120
Lynne have done a whole lot with it but

00:07:47.120 --> 00:07:49.040
basically you've before the shot they

00:07:49.040 --> 00:07:50.390
call it the think box

00:07:50.390 --> 00:07:52.760
you've got during the shot the play box

00:07:52.760 --> 00:07:55.460
after the shot and memory zone or memory

00:07:55.460 --> 00:07:58.580
box basically what are you gonna do

00:07:58.580 --> 00:08:00.440
before the shot while you're executing

00:08:00.440 --> 00:08:03.970
and how are you gonna respond to it well

00:08:03.970 --> 00:08:06.950
before the shot your goal is to make

00:08:06.950 --> 00:08:10.250
that as simple as possible your but you

00:08:10.250 --> 00:08:11.780
want to factor in all the information

00:08:11.780 --> 00:08:14.680
and get 100% committed to a decision

00:08:14.680 --> 00:08:17.320
there's there's some simple little

00:08:17.320 --> 00:08:19.820
applied kinesiology things you can do to

00:08:19.820 --> 00:08:22.280
show yourself that if you have doubt you

00:08:22.280 --> 00:08:23.840
will have a different level of tension

00:08:23.840 --> 00:08:25.520
going on in your body than if you are

00:08:25.520 --> 00:08:28.760
confident there it's been duplicated in

00:08:28.760 --> 00:08:32.500
many studies I use it all the time so

00:08:32.500 --> 00:08:35.690
and there's two different places that

00:08:35.690 --> 00:08:37.430
you really want to look at do I have

00:08:37.430 --> 00:08:39.860
doubt one is my mind which is is this

00:08:39.860 --> 00:08:41.330
the right shot you know hey it's a

00:08:41.330 --> 00:08:42.990
dogleg left and there

00:08:42.990 --> 00:08:45.030
water on the left do I really want to

00:08:45.030 --> 00:08:47.160
hit this draw around the corner or am I

00:08:47.160 --> 00:08:49.560
scared over the water right or do I want

00:08:49.560 --> 00:08:50.990
to play a little bit safer that's more

00:08:50.990 --> 00:08:54.180
intellectual and then you've got your

00:08:54.180 --> 00:08:56.100
gut response which would be more like

00:08:56.100 --> 00:08:59.360
okay I look at it it looks like a draw

00:08:59.360 --> 00:09:01.710
logically it should be a draw but you

00:09:01.710 --> 00:09:03.030
know what I'm just feeling more of a

00:09:03.030 --> 00:09:04.860
fade in my body maybe it's the live the

00:09:04.860 --> 00:09:06.660
tea box or something but I'm feeling

00:09:06.660 --> 00:09:10.650
more of this fade shot well if you have

00:09:10.650 --> 00:09:12.780
a conflict between what's going on in

00:09:12.780 --> 00:09:13.890
your mind and what you're feeling in

00:09:13.890 --> 00:09:16.890
your body always go with your body the

00:09:16.890 --> 00:09:20.820
if you there's it's deeper it's more

00:09:20.820 --> 00:09:22.200
primal it's more connected to movement

00:09:22.200 --> 00:09:24.450
so if you start going just with your

00:09:24.450 --> 00:09:26.880
intellect you're gonna you're gonna go

00:09:26.880 --> 00:09:29.790
down some bad pathways and I think JB

00:09:29.790 --> 00:09:32.190
was struggling with what did he want to

00:09:32.190 --> 00:09:33.690
do versus what did he think he should do

00:09:33.690 --> 00:09:39.600
so that takes us to the question from

00:09:39.600 --> 00:09:41.430
Sharon about where should you be paying

00:09:41.430 --> 00:09:44.070
attention well let's will break your

00:09:44.070 --> 00:09:45.270
brain into like two different sections

00:09:45.270 --> 00:09:47.040
you got like language centers which

00:09:47.040 --> 00:09:49.170
would be like areas where you're

00:09:49.170 --> 00:09:51.270
consciously aware so like if you're

00:09:51.270 --> 00:09:53.850
hearing yourself talk you're in the

00:09:53.850 --> 00:09:55.560
language center cuz you're using words

00:09:55.560 --> 00:09:58.530
then you have sensations so what do I

00:09:58.530 --> 00:10:04.110
see what do I hear what do I feel all

00:10:04.110 --> 00:10:06.870
that great stuff so you've got language

00:10:06.870 --> 00:10:09.900
centers or aware like you know actual

00:10:09.900 --> 00:10:12.270
words and then you've got feelings when

00:10:12.270 --> 00:10:13.740
you're executing when you're in that

00:10:13.740 --> 00:10:17.310
play box operation zone you want to be

00:10:17.310 --> 00:10:19.470
feeling you do not want to be thinking

00:10:19.470 --> 00:10:23.310
so what can happen on the course is you

00:10:23.310 --> 00:10:24.840
start you get on the course and you

00:10:24.840 --> 00:10:27.390
start running more of a checklist and

00:10:27.390 --> 00:10:29.010
you're telling yourself okay what did I

00:10:29.010 --> 00:10:31.140
work on in my last lesson making sure

00:10:31.140 --> 00:10:32.670
that I do it and you become kind of

00:10:32.670 --> 00:10:35.010
you're reminding yourself of what you

00:10:35.010 --> 00:10:36.420
were doing but you're moving yourself to

00:10:36.420 --> 00:10:38.310
the wrong part of the brain where when

00:10:38.310 --> 00:10:39.810
you're on the range and you're just kind

00:10:39.810 --> 00:10:42.900
of swinging you're probably not talking

00:10:42.900 --> 00:10:44.810
to yourself too much you may be using a

00:10:44.810 --> 00:10:48.240
verbal cue to cue a physical movement

00:10:48.240 --> 00:10:50.760
but for the most part you're just moving

00:10:50.760 --> 00:10:54.190
you're just kind of in repetition zone

00:10:54.190 --> 00:10:57.310
in movement zone more in sensing zone so

00:10:57.310 --> 00:10:59.639
the key is building a pre-shot routine

00:10:59.639 --> 00:11:03.550
that helps you get into the movement

00:11:03.550 --> 00:11:05.920
zone and that last stage of your

00:11:05.920 --> 00:11:07.990
pre-shot routine is thinking about what

00:11:07.990 --> 00:11:09.399
shot do I want to hit and what am I

00:11:09.399 --> 00:11:11.740
gonna feel or what am I gonna try to

00:11:11.740 --> 00:11:14.560
sense when I'm in that play box if you

00:11:14.560 --> 00:11:16.959
don't have those to figure it out then

00:11:16.959 --> 00:11:19.779
you're probably gonna struggle when you

00:11:19.779 --> 00:11:24.069
get under pressure the the other

00:11:24.069 --> 00:11:28.930
question related to awareness and you

00:11:28.930 --> 00:11:32.819
know what you should be thinking feeling

00:11:33.180 --> 00:11:36.670
another let's say another subcategory of

00:11:36.670 --> 00:11:38.889
that problem would be when you're when

00:11:38.889 --> 00:11:41.139
you're in that play box you want to make

00:11:41.139 --> 00:11:42.639
sure that you're experiencing the whole

00:11:42.639 --> 00:11:44.709
swing and not breaking or in not

00:11:44.709 --> 00:11:48.279
focusing individually on one part so

00:11:48.279 --> 00:11:50.500
let's say let's say you're working on

00:11:50.500 --> 00:11:53.110
early extension and so your state you're

00:11:53.110 --> 00:11:55.120
working on keeping your body down and

00:11:55.120 --> 00:11:56.439
maybe shadowing a bit more with your

00:11:56.439 --> 00:11:58.300
arms and maybe a little earlier closing

00:11:58.300 --> 00:12:00.910
so you're working on those things what

00:12:00.910 --> 00:12:03.069
you want to do is when you're building

00:12:03.069 --> 00:12:05.170
that pre-shot thought you want to make

00:12:05.170 --> 00:12:07.120
sure it includes how the swing starts

00:12:07.120 --> 00:12:08.980
how the swing evolves and then how the

00:12:08.980 --> 00:12:10.689
swing ends so that you can have focus

00:12:10.689 --> 00:12:13.779
and kind of clarity of what movement

00:12:13.779 --> 00:12:15.040
you're gonna do or what's when you're

00:12:15.040 --> 00:12:17.920
gonna make during the entire swing if

00:12:17.920 --> 00:12:20.949
you only have a back swing thought and

00:12:20.949 --> 00:12:23.620
you get up there and then your brain is

00:12:23.620 --> 00:12:24.939
kind of like well what was I supposed to

00:12:24.939 --> 00:12:26.949
do next that can create a little extra

00:12:26.949 --> 00:12:29.860
tension that could create a little bit

00:12:29.860 --> 00:12:32.410
less consistent let's say energy

00:12:32.410 --> 00:12:35.139
transfer that can mess up the bottom of

00:12:35.139 --> 00:12:36.730
your swing I can mess up your sequencing

00:12:36.730 --> 00:12:42.430
a little bit so while you can be focused

00:12:42.430 --> 00:12:44.410
on one part of your swing you need a

00:12:44.410 --> 00:12:47.139
general global focus of how that's going

00:12:47.139 --> 00:12:49.569
to interact with the whole swing not

00:12:49.569 --> 00:12:52.480
just that one area so that's part of the

00:12:52.480 --> 00:12:55.329
reason why on the course typically

00:12:55.329 --> 00:12:58.540
external focus do pretty well for a lot

00:12:58.540 --> 00:13:01.809
of golfers now I'm on the odd ball end

00:13:01.809 --> 00:13:05.700
of the spectrum where I've you know put

00:13:05.700 --> 00:13:09.380
put the devices on and when I focus on

00:13:09.380 --> 00:13:10.530
movements

00:13:10.530 --> 00:13:15.450
I am my brain is calmer I've I perform

00:13:15.450 --> 00:13:17.370
better I see you better than if I just

00:13:17.370 --> 00:13:19.920
think about the target there was one

00:13:19.920 --> 00:13:22.320
study done that showed that if you

00:13:22.320 --> 00:13:25.340
focused on or they basically just

00:13:25.340 --> 00:13:27.930
interviewed major champion winners and

00:13:27.930 --> 00:13:29.400
they found that there were four common

00:13:29.400 --> 00:13:31.590
things that they paid attention to one

00:13:31.590 --> 00:13:34.740
had a specific feeling of what they

00:13:34.740 --> 00:13:36.330
wanted their body to do during the swing

00:13:36.330 --> 00:13:39.540
one had a specific feeling of what they

00:13:39.540 --> 00:13:42.330
wanted the club to do one had no thought

00:13:42.330 --> 00:13:44.340
whatsoever and the other group had

00:13:44.340 --> 00:13:47.070
target thoughts only so it shows that

00:13:47.070 --> 00:13:49.320
you can have different areas of focus

00:13:49.320 --> 00:13:54.090
and execute well but I I always caution

00:13:54.090 --> 00:13:55.890
my golfers with using the word swing

00:13:55.890 --> 00:13:57.840
thought and trying to get in and more of

00:13:57.840 --> 00:14:03.810
a swing feeling okay so that gives kind

00:14:03.810 --> 00:14:05.610
of a general picture as far as what

00:14:05.610 --> 00:14:06.690
you're trying to do when you go to the

00:14:06.690 --> 00:14:10.380
course you're going to try and get into

00:14:10.380 --> 00:14:12.360
this field zone by using a good pre shot

00:14:12.360 --> 00:14:14.190
routine so you can have both your heart

00:14:14.190 --> 00:14:15.810
or both your body and your brain

00:14:15.810 --> 00:14:17.580
committed to the shot and you have one

00:14:17.580 --> 00:14:19.740
clear focus to execute during the shot

00:14:19.740 --> 00:14:21.120
now what are some of the other

00:14:21.120 --> 00:14:22.980
challenges when you go from the range to

00:14:22.980 --> 00:14:25.740
the course well when you go to the

00:14:25.740 --> 00:14:27.990
course you're gonna have uneven lies

00:14:27.990 --> 00:14:29.610
you're gonna have different distances

00:14:29.610 --> 00:14:33.750
and many amateurs don't practice that so

00:14:33.750 --> 00:14:36.450
I had another question from David about

00:14:36.450 --> 00:14:38.820
if you had approximately ten hours per

00:14:38.820 --> 00:14:41.670
week how would you break it up so if you

00:14:41.670 --> 00:14:43.200
had ten hours a week for practice I'm

00:14:43.200 --> 00:14:45.090
not counting like rounds that you're

00:14:45.090 --> 00:14:47.730
playing with people and kind of you know

00:14:47.730 --> 00:14:49.380
your buddies or weekend rounds your

00:14:49.380 --> 00:14:51.120
middle two-week rounds 10 hours for

00:14:51.120 --> 00:14:54.990
practice I would roughly let's say I

00:14:54.990 --> 00:14:57.450
take 4 hours of that and I'd want to be

00:14:57.450 --> 00:15:00.390
practicing on the course so that could

00:15:00.390 --> 00:15:02.040
be whatever I'm working on with my game

00:15:02.040 --> 00:15:03.930
I'm gonna be doing in the course

00:15:03.930 --> 00:15:06.510
environment the other six hours I would

00:15:06.510 --> 00:15:09.420
do about two-thirds of ball striking one

00:15:09.420 --> 00:15:12.450
third short game so I got six hours I'm

00:15:12.450 --> 00:15:15.060
gonna spend four of it working on ball

00:15:15.060 --> 00:15:18.180
striking privatising iron play and shots

00:15:18.180 --> 00:15:18.870
off the tee

00:15:18.870 --> 00:15:22.529
and then I'm going to work on for two

00:15:22.529 --> 00:15:24.589
hours I'm gonna work on wedge play

00:15:24.589 --> 00:15:27.150
chipping pitching putting chipping

00:15:27.150 --> 00:15:28.950
pitching basically my stock shots inside

00:15:28.950 --> 00:15:32.040
20 yards distance wedges would probably

00:15:32.040 --> 00:15:35.370
get maybe a half hour 45 minutes tops

00:15:35.370 --> 00:15:37.350
and then putting would probably get a

00:15:37.350 --> 00:15:43.170
full so we'll say half hour for chipping

00:15:43.170 --> 00:15:45.089
pitching half hour for distance wedge

00:15:45.089 --> 00:15:49.020
hour for putting and then the rest of

00:15:49.020 --> 00:15:52.200
the time for ball straight I still had

00:15:52.200 --> 00:15:53.760
that four hours on the course where I

00:15:53.760 --> 00:15:56.430
get to work on those things but in more

00:15:56.430 --> 00:15:58.560
the game environment the the metaphor

00:15:58.560 --> 00:16:01.050
the analogy I give is imagine you were

00:16:01.050 --> 00:16:04.170
in school and you had one classroom

00:16:04.170 --> 00:16:06.930
where you took every single test so you

00:16:06.930 --> 00:16:08.279
had like your learning zone where you

00:16:08.279 --> 00:16:10.110
went in hung out with your friends and

00:16:10.110 --> 00:16:12.000
paid attention to class and then you had

00:16:12.000 --> 00:16:13.529
this other room where you went and

00:16:13.529 --> 00:16:15.960
that's where you took every test to

00:16:15.960 --> 00:16:17.550
imagine the response you'd have when you

00:16:17.550 --> 00:16:20.910
walk towards the test some cop sometimes

00:16:20.910 --> 00:16:22.650
you might be really confident going to

00:16:22.650 --> 00:16:24.209
that room other times you might be

00:16:24.209 --> 00:16:25.709
really depressed but there would

00:16:25.709 --> 00:16:28.589
definitely be a change in how you felt

00:16:28.589 --> 00:16:30.630
going to that classroom because this was

00:16:30.630 --> 00:16:32.850
a special testing environment and I find

00:16:32.850 --> 00:16:35.130
that a lot of golfers make that make the

00:16:35.130 --> 00:16:38.400
mistake of creating that situation out

00:16:38.400 --> 00:16:40.410
of the golf course where they only keeps

00:16:40.410 --> 00:16:44.220
go on the golf course to keep score many

00:16:44.220 --> 00:16:47.010
you know every tour pro I've ever worked

00:16:47.010 --> 00:16:48.930
with every good amateur collegiate

00:16:48.930 --> 00:16:51.089
golfer we do a lot of practicing on the

00:16:51.089 --> 00:16:53.550
course so like let's say I get in a good

00:16:53.550 --> 00:16:55.800
groove with my swing I'm just gonna go

00:16:55.800 --> 00:16:58.050
play three or five holes and practice on

00:16:58.050 --> 00:16:59.850
the course now I recommend or I

00:16:59.850 --> 00:17:02.250
recognize that some of you may be at

00:17:02.250 --> 00:17:03.959
more public courses but with facilities

00:17:03.959 --> 00:17:07.290
and you can't do that but I'm giving you

00:17:07.290 --> 00:17:10.500
what I think is optimal so even if it's

00:17:10.500 --> 00:17:12.270
doing like twilight rounds by yourself

00:17:12.270 --> 00:17:13.890
where you can get some practice in on

00:17:13.890 --> 00:17:15.689
the course I think that's very helpful

00:17:15.689 --> 00:17:19.260
I have a number of ways to do variety

00:17:19.260 --> 00:17:22.199
practice on the range that can help and

00:17:22.199 --> 00:17:26.160
I've been doing some some success with

00:17:26.160 --> 00:17:28.950
okay what happens on the course is you

00:17:28.950 --> 00:17:30.840
face these uneven lives right so when

00:17:30.840 --> 00:17:31.950
you're facing these uneven

00:17:31.950 --> 00:17:34.680
you want your gonna change a little bit

00:17:34.680 --> 00:17:37.620
how you're going to power this wing so

00:17:37.620 --> 00:17:39.390
you can't use your legs as well you got

00:17:39.390 --> 00:17:41.730
to use a little bit more upper-body your

00:17:41.730 --> 00:17:43.140
weight distribution will be a little bit

00:17:43.140 --> 00:17:45.330
different so essentially it's like

00:17:45.330 --> 00:17:46.950
moving the ball position and stance

00:17:46.950 --> 00:17:49.650
around so I do little games on the range

00:17:49.650 --> 00:17:51.390
where I have you move the ball position

00:17:51.390 --> 00:17:53.600
forward move the ball position backward

00:17:53.600 --> 00:17:56.640
put weight left weight right swing more

00:17:56.640 --> 00:17:59.190
arms swing more legs or closed stance

00:17:59.190 --> 00:18:01.050
open stance and by adding some of those

00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:04.560
variety and trying to duplicate the same

00:18:04.560 --> 00:18:06.930
shot shape it forces your brain to work

00:18:06.930 --> 00:18:10.190
the equation of how do I swing this club

00:18:10.190 --> 00:18:12.780
the same way but using a different

00:18:12.780 --> 00:18:14.010
pattern and because that's ultimately

00:18:14.010 --> 00:18:15.930
what you have to do on the course if you

00:18:15.930 --> 00:18:18.750
play a lot of flat courses and you just

00:18:18.750 --> 00:18:20.400
need to work more on trajectory and

00:18:20.400 --> 00:18:23.400
distance control and then I do more

00:18:23.400 --> 00:18:26.220
things working on off speed hits and

00:18:26.220 --> 00:18:28.470
tempo drills but if you're playing

00:18:28.470 --> 00:18:30.210
courses that have slopes like our home

00:18:30.210 --> 00:18:32.670
course messing around with ball position

00:18:32.670 --> 00:18:35.340
and different stances can help it

00:18:35.340 --> 00:18:39.150
transfer over okay so now I'm just gonna

00:18:39.150 --> 00:18:42.260
jump into some of these more general

00:18:42.260 --> 00:18:47.160
questions let's see where do we want to

00:18:47.160 --> 00:18:50.670
start okay Mike asked about if your

00:18:50.670 --> 00:18:53.520
shanking the trail arm only drill why

00:18:53.520 --> 00:18:58.680
might that happen so let me grab the

00:18:58.680 --> 00:19:02.670
club essentially wanna shank you can

00:19:02.670 --> 00:19:05.220
I've got my mini club here we'll be able

00:19:05.220 --> 00:19:07.470
to see if I'm doing my trailer I'm only

00:19:07.470 --> 00:19:10.740
drill if the the club and the hosel was

00:19:10.740 --> 00:19:12.270
moving out that way that would be one

00:19:12.270 --> 00:19:14.460
cause of the shank or if the clubface is

00:19:14.460 --> 00:19:16.650
coming in super wide open that would be

00:19:16.650 --> 00:19:18.540
another cause of the shape the things

00:19:18.540 --> 00:19:20.310
that are going to move my hand and the

00:19:20.310 --> 00:19:22.770
hosel out that way would be more of an

00:19:22.770 --> 00:19:24.690
early extension pattern so if some

00:19:24.690 --> 00:19:27.250
golfers shifting too much into their toe

00:19:27.250 --> 00:19:29.920
moving their hands in doubt will cause

00:19:29.920 --> 00:19:32.560
more of that shank pattern and one of

00:19:32.560 --> 00:19:33.850
the other common ones is if you're

00:19:33.850 --> 00:19:36.700
getting more of the movement through the

00:19:36.700 --> 00:19:39.220
ball from straightening that arm or

00:19:39.220 --> 00:19:41.050
straightening that arm into the ball as

00:19:41.050 --> 00:19:44.350
opposed to having more of that trail

00:19:44.350 --> 00:19:46.690
wrist rotation and a little bit more of

00:19:46.690 --> 00:19:48.460
that white movement which delays the

00:19:48.460 --> 00:19:50.920
straightening new york if you straighten

00:19:50.920 --> 00:19:53.050
your arm think about this way I'm set up

00:19:53.050 --> 00:19:55.600
I've got a probably 20 degrees 30

00:19:55.600 --> 00:19:56.680
degrees of our mend

00:19:56.680 --> 00:19:59.050
if I just straighten that arm that by

00:19:59.050 --> 00:20:02.670
itself can move the club further out so

00:20:02.670 --> 00:20:04.810
what I would need to do is if I

00:20:04.810 --> 00:20:06.640
straighten my arm I would need to stand

00:20:06.640 --> 00:20:08.320
up the right amount or early extend to

00:20:08.320 --> 00:20:10.480
bring it back in in place and when

00:20:10.480 --> 00:20:12.670
you're doing these small drills it's

00:20:12.670 --> 00:20:14.530
rare that you would have enough early

00:20:14.530 --> 00:20:16.690
extension to compensate for that early

00:20:16.690 --> 00:20:20.050
arm action so I work on rotating the

00:20:20.050 --> 00:20:22.330
club and getting the arm to extend

00:20:22.330 --> 00:20:23.980
through the shot instead of into the

00:20:23.980 --> 00:20:27.490
shot that usually clears up the shanks

00:20:27.490 --> 00:20:29.470
but at the very least I would do the

00:20:29.470 --> 00:20:31.600
shank drill where you put T's at

00:20:31.600 --> 00:20:34.360
different spots just outside just inside

00:20:34.360 --> 00:20:38.680
to get aware of where the club is he had

00:20:38.680 --> 00:20:43.090
another question about if you get toe

00:20:43.090 --> 00:20:46.300
deep why would you want more early why

00:20:46.300 --> 00:20:50.220
would you want more owner deviation well

00:20:50.220 --> 00:20:53.830
the way that the wrists work is somewhat

00:20:53.830 --> 00:20:56.230
in combination they're not pure movement

00:20:56.230 --> 00:20:57.940
so you would you would assume that okay

00:20:57.940 --> 00:21:00.370
the club is like this and then I go toe

00:21:00.370 --> 00:21:02.380
deep or a owner deviate make it was down

00:21:02.380 --> 00:21:05.290
like that but what actually happens is I

00:21:05.290 --> 00:21:08.410
owner deviate so then it actually

00:21:08.410 --> 00:21:10.180
rotates the face a little bit more

00:21:10.180 --> 00:21:12.370
increase more shaft lean so you see I

00:21:12.370 --> 00:21:14.830
barely went more toe deep what I really

00:21:14.830 --> 00:21:19.570
did was all-new deviation now the camera

00:21:19.570 --> 00:21:21.250
is going to show it going a little bit

00:21:21.250 --> 00:21:23.200
more like lefty but the only deviation

00:21:23.200 --> 00:21:27.670
creates more chef lean kind of like this

00:21:27.670 --> 00:21:29.850
and it creates that within

00:21:29.850 --> 00:21:31.830
the in the way through it doesn't

00:21:31.830 --> 00:21:34.650
necessarily create a whole lot of toe

00:21:34.650 --> 00:21:37.590
down drop toe down drop

00:21:37.590 --> 00:21:39.809
tends to happen more when you're getting

00:21:39.809 --> 00:21:42.650
a lot of flexion of that trail wrist

00:21:42.650 --> 00:21:45.840
because what will happen there is that

00:21:45.840 --> 00:21:48.840
flexion of the trail wrist will tend to

00:21:48.840 --> 00:21:53.400
pull the toe in and across so then when

00:21:53.400 --> 00:21:57.090
I have my body usually that's company

00:21:57.090 --> 00:21:59.220
with a little bit of a stall pattern but

00:21:59.220 --> 00:22:01.080
if I have that pattern coming across

00:22:01.080 --> 00:22:03.600
like this that's gonna cause that toe to

00:22:03.600 --> 00:22:07.710
dig not just this way and under like you

00:22:07.710 --> 00:22:10.350
think a flip would do but it'll actually

00:22:10.350 --> 00:22:13.140
take the trailers into earlier deviation

00:22:13.140 --> 00:22:19.080
sooner so trying to get that lead wrist

00:22:19.080 --> 00:22:21.539
ulnar deviation helps create that

00:22:21.539 --> 00:22:24.330
forward shaft lean and the the tricky

00:22:24.330 --> 00:22:25.890
thing with the trail wrist is getting

00:22:25.890 --> 00:22:27.539
the ulnar deviation while maintaining

00:22:27.539 --> 00:22:29.250
the extension because if you start going

00:22:29.250 --> 00:22:32.909
into flexion then you'll typically go

00:22:32.909 --> 00:22:35.010
into internal rotation and that by

00:22:35.010 --> 00:22:38.820
itself will if I exaggerate it make the

00:22:38.820 --> 00:22:41.250
toe a little bit deeper than the heel so

00:22:41.250 --> 00:22:45.210
older deviation is one of those key key

00:22:45.210 --> 00:22:47.880
movements for shallowing out the swing

00:22:47.880 --> 00:22:50.400
from the arms and allowing for perform

00:22:50.400 --> 00:22:53.610
rotation which creates shaft lean so if

00:22:53.610 --> 00:22:58.860
you're not doing that movement it uh it

00:22:58.860 --> 00:23:00.840
can create a whole host of contact

00:23:00.840 --> 00:23:05.010
problems before I jump in to some of the

00:23:05.010 --> 00:23:06.809
other emailed questions I see that we

00:23:06.809 --> 00:23:09.450
got a few coming in here in the chat

00:23:09.450 --> 00:23:14.610
window alright Mike asked I tend to

00:23:14.610 --> 00:23:16.409
stand more vertically as the round

00:23:16.409 --> 00:23:18.900
progresses probably due to casting and

00:23:18.900 --> 00:23:23.460
fear of hitting it fat yes I I would say

00:23:23.460 --> 00:23:26.070
that that's that's a common trait it's

00:23:26.070 --> 00:23:27.780
good to know what happens to your body

00:23:27.780 --> 00:23:31.289
under pressure or under fatigue in this

00:23:31.289 --> 00:23:33.900
case and that's why reigning

00:23:33.900 --> 00:23:35.700
adaptability is more important than

00:23:35.700 --> 00:23:37.950
training consistency you can work on

00:23:37.950 --> 00:23:41.100
your endurance in training in in the gym

00:23:41.100 --> 00:23:42.460
and stuff like

00:23:42.460 --> 00:23:45.340
but it's also good to work on the skills

00:23:45.340 --> 00:23:49.019
where you can hit a solid shot from a

00:23:49.019 --> 00:23:52.179
slightly taller posture you can hit a

00:23:52.179 --> 00:23:55.380
slight solid shot from more arm action

00:23:55.380 --> 00:23:58.059
because if I knew that I was casting I

00:23:58.059 --> 00:24:00.580
would basically you know take a half

00:24:00.580 --> 00:24:02.620
more Club and play a little cut and I

00:24:02.620 --> 00:24:04.330
could probably score pretty well doing

00:24:04.330 --> 00:24:07.299
that so knowing what's gonna happen to

00:24:07.299 --> 00:24:09.940
you under pressure or under fatigue is

00:24:09.940 --> 00:24:13.899
really important one of my there was one

00:24:13.899 --> 00:24:17.320
year where I recognized that most of my

00:24:17.320 --> 00:24:19.659
rounds under par that year came in

00:24:19.659 --> 00:24:24.250
second rounds of 36-hole tournaments so

00:24:24.250 --> 00:24:26.590
it was interesting because I made the

00:24:26.590 --> 00:24:28.570
connection that basically as I got more

00:24:28.570 --> 00:24:29.440
fatigue

00:24:29.440 --> 00:24:32.380
my lower body got quieter and I got a

00:24:32.380 --> 00:24:34.809
little less early extension like I got

00:24:34.809 --> 00:24:37.600
more contribution of the upper body and

00:24:37.600 --> 00:24:41.110
I could hit more like flighted irons

00:24:41.110 --> 00:24:43.059
where the first round I typically took

00:24:43.059 --> 00:24:45.460
more full cuts at stuff and my proximity

00:24:45.460 --> 00:24:48.220
the hole got better when I would hit

00:24:48.220 --> 00:24:50.320
these more flight at iron shots so I

00:24:50.320 --> 00:24:52.389
learned from that that I needed to

00:24:52.389 --> 00:24:54.190
practice more of these flight at iron

00:24:54.190 --> 00:24:57.190
shots and not just rely on being tired

00:24:57.190 --> 00:25:02.200
in order to do so daniel is asking do

00:25:02.200 --> 00:25:04.000
you find competitive practice such as a

00:25:04.000 --> 00:25:06.190
small waste wager helpful to bridge

00:25:06.190 --> 00:25:08.799
between practice and course or is

00:25:08.799 --> 00:25:10.240
competition and distraction from what

00:25:10.240 --> 00:25:11.409
you were trying to actually accomplish

00:25:11.409 --> 00:25:15.490
no the so talking with Debbie Cruz who's

00:25:15.490 --> 00:25:18.010
one of the kind of grandmothers of the

00:25:18.010 --> 00:25:21.639
neuroscience stuff she she reiterated

00:25:21.639 --> 00:25:24.460
multiple times that you just have to

00:25:24.460 --> 00:25:26.350
elevate the stress level a little bit in

00:25:26.350 --> 00:25:29.620
order to train the brain to what it's

00:25:29.620 --> 00:25:33.130
going to experience when you get under

00:25:33.130 --> 00:25:35.350
pressure it's not that you have to get

00:25:35.350 --> 00:25:36.789
it all the way to what its gonna feel

00:25:36.789 --> 00:25:39.159
like Sunday at the Masters in order to

00:25:39.159 --> 00:25:42.340
have the benefit so little games little

00:25:42.340 --> 00:25:45.940
small wagers um in addition to variety

00:25:45.940 --> 00:25:47.710
practice I like to have my students try

00:25:47.710 --> 00:25:50.559
to hit three or five good shots in a row

00:25:50.559 --> 00:25:51.140
so

00:25:51.140 --> 00:25:54.530
say you're just you know you you've hit

00:25:54.530 --> 00:25:56.090
a bunch of 7 irons now you're like okay

00:25:56.090 --> 00:25:57.500
in order to leave in order to switch

00:25:57.500 --> 00:25:59.360
clubs I got hit three perfect seven

00:25:59.360 --> 00:26:01.280
irons in a row and just having that

00:26:01.280 --> 00:26:03.500
pressure on the third one of okay I got

00:26:03.500 --> 00:26:05.600
a I gotta focus on this will elevate

00:26:05.600 --> 00:26:08.450
things enough that it will show you what

00:26:08.450 --> 00:26:10.310
kind of disruptions you're gonna get and

00:26:10.310 --> 00:26:13.580
it'll help you like learn to train the

00:26:13.580 --> 00:26:16.040
pattern in a more stress state so good

00:26:16.040 --> 00:26:18.470
question Patrick Miller can we see the

00:26:18.470 --> 00:26:25.490
net force on 2d video the there there is

00:26:25.490 --> 00:26:29.720
one on both the site and on YouTube send

00:26:29.720 --> 00:26:31.760
me a direct question to support at golf

00:26:31.760 --> 00:26:33.230
Smart Academy comm because I'm not quite

00:26:33.230 --> 00:26:35.930
sure what that's related to but that

00:26:35.930 --> 00:26:38.960
will I can I can get you the link to

00:26:38.960 --> 00:26:40.550
whatever video you're you're hoping to

00:26:40.550 --> 00:26:45.470
watch there okay back to the pre or the

00:26:45.470 --> 00:26:49.000
emailed questions Tom asked about

00:26:49.000 --> 00:26:51.800
external rotation of the lead knee and

00:26:51.800 --> 00:26:57.410
hip so basically asking you know Dana

00:26:57.410 --> 00:26:59.660
Dahlquist George can kiss or two other

00:26:59.660 --> 00:27:03.350
popular online golf instructors and they

00:27:03.350 --> 00:27:06.080
never talk about the Jackson 5 was one

00:27:06.080 --> 00:27:10.840
of his comments so I would say that that

00:27:10.840 --> 00:27:14.510
I'm typically working with a higher

00:27:14.510 --> 00:27:16.550
handicap golfer then it appears that

00:27:16.550 --> 00:27:18.650
they are working with so here's how I

00:27:18.650 --> 00:27:21.680
think through the process we know that

00:27:21.680 --> 00:27:24.620
from 3d and motion analysis that the

00:27:24.620 --> 00:27:26.500
pelvis moves about four to six inches

00:27:26.500 --> 00:27:29.150
towards the target during the downswing

00:27:29.150 --> 00:27:32.630
now I've done literally thousands of 3ds

00:27:32.630 --> 00:27:35.270
on high hand yet high handicap golfers

00:27:35.270 --> 00:27:38.120
and rarely do I see them moving more

00:27:38.120 --> 00:27:41.090
than three inches now that being said I

00:27:41.090 --> 00:27:43.190
have a number of juniors where that's

00:27:43.190 --> 00:27:45.710
moving 10 inches towards the target so

00:27:45.710 --> 00:27:48.170
when I have golfers who have really

00:27:48.170 --> 00:27:51.170
excessive pelvis movement and getting 10

00:27:51.170 --> 00:27:52.940
inches of movement towards the target i

00:27:52.940 --> 00:27:55.790
cue them to work a little bit more

00:27:55.790 --> 00:27:57.440
almost feeling like their hips are going

00:27:57.440 --> 00:27:58.880
that way and their upper body is gonna

00:27:58.880 --> 00:28:02.660
cover very much like you know a movement

00:28:02.660 --> 00:28:04.360
that you might see from

00:28:04.360 --> 00:28:06.760
georgina but if you already have more of

00:28:06.760 --> 00:28:10.990
a spin than getting that early bump that

00:28:10.990 --> 00:28:14.260
a lot of good competitive golfers have

00:28:14.260 --> 00:28:17.320
described typically helps out especially

00:28:17.320 --> 00:28:20.980
the higher handicap slice golfer or

00:28:20.980 --> 00:28:25.600
golfer who slices the wall so I I don't

00:28:25.600 --> 00:28:28.960
think there's one right feeling I I say

00:28:28.960 --> 00:28:30.850
this all the time your feels change if I

00:28:30.850 --> 00:28:33.850
ask you how you I've had students do

00:28:33.850 --> 00:28:35.380
this where I'll say you know what just

00:28:35.380 --> 00:28:37.630
for fun in the morning and in the

00:28:37.630 --> 00:28:39.010
evening just write down how your body

00:28:39.010 --> 00:28:41.559
feels just do it for a week and what

00:28:41.559 --> 00:28:43.240
you'll find is that your body does not

00:28:43.240 --> 00:28:45.490
feel exactly the same every single day

00:28:45.490 --> 00:28:48.700
so if you're looking for an absolute

00:28:48.700 --> 00:28:50.260
feeling that you're gonna be able to use

00:28:50.260 --> 00:28:53.740
forever with your swing you're you're

00:28:53.740 --> 00:28:55.870
chasing your going down the wrong path

00:28:55.870 --> 00:28:58.690
what you want is relationships and ball

00:28:58.690 --> 00:29:01.299
flights and you need like maybe four or

00:29:01.299 --> 00:29:03.880
five different feels that help you get

00:29:03.880 --> 00:29:05.559
the face to path you want get the low

00:29:05.559 --> 00:29:07.120
point control you want get the power

00:29:07.120 --> 00:29:09.640
sources that you want in order to

00:29:09.640 --> 00:29:12.520
produce good shots because one other

00:29:12.520 --> 00:29:13.929
thing with taking it to the course is

00:29:13.929 --> 00:29:16.210
you have to recognize when you have your

00:29:16.210 --> 00:29:17.679
a-game when you have your B game when

00:29:17.679 --> 00:29:19.210
you have your C game and how do you

00:29:19.210 --> 00:29:22.330
adapt your your strategy on the course

00:29:22.330 --> 00:29:25.030
base - based on how your body is feeling

00:29:25.030 --> 00:29:26.950
that day and if you're the type of

00:29:26.950 --> 00:29:28.600
person who just says you know what I

00:29:28.600 --> 00:29:32.110
feel the same every single day and I'm

00:29:32.110 --> 00:29:33.700
looking you know it should feel like

00:29:33.700 --> 00:29:35.890
this it should feel like this what will

00:29:35.890 --> 00:29:37.780
happen is you'll get into a good groove

00:29:37.780 --> 00:29:39.460
where the feel works and they will come

00:29:39.460 --> 00:29:41.020
out the next day you'll try the feel and

00:29:41.020 --> 00:29:43.600
it doesn't work because you don't have a

00:29:43.600 --> 00:29:47.140
calibration so for example going let

00:29:47.140 --> 00:29:49.600
external in your hips is great if it

00:29:49.600 --> 00:29:51.760
improves your sequencing in gets you

00:29:51.760 --> 00:29:54.100
that four to six inches of pelvis shift

00:29:54.100 --> 00:29:56.790
if going external in your lead hip

00:29:56.790 --> 00:29:59.650
causes your hips actually to stay more

00:29:59.650 --> 00:30:02.260
over the right foot and not have a whole

00:30:02.260 --> 00:30:03.760
lot of shift and your upper body does

00:30:03.760 --> 00:30:06.400
actually get ahead of it then you're

00:30:06.400 --> 00:30:07.630
probably going to struggle a lot with

00:30:07.630 --> 00:30:11.380
the longer clubs so if trying the

00:30:11.380 --> 00:30:13.960
Jackson 5 causes you to get 10 inches of

00:30:13.960 --> 00:30:16.210
shift where you already have 10 inches

00:30:16.210 --> 00:30:16.809
of shift

00:30:16.809 --> 00:30:18.879
then trying something like the external

00:30:18.879 --> 00:30:21.220
rotation of the lead knee could be very

00:30:21.220 --> 00:30:24.009
helpful so you got to know your swing in

00:30:24.009 --> 00:30:27.549
your pattern and figure out drills that

00:30:27.549 --> 00:30:29.919
are based on good checkpoints to help

00:30:29.919 --> 00:30:31.659
get you to actually do it and then you

00:30:31.659 --> 00:30:32.799
can come up with what it should feel

00:30:32.799 --> 00:30:34.330
like I don't think everybody should have

00:30:34.330 --> 00:30:38.110
the same feels all right Dean asked

00:30:38.110 --> 00:30:40.570
about hand path hand path going outward

00:30:40.570 --> 00:30:43.149
early how do you get it to go back in

00:30:43.149 --> 00:30:46.210
while the club goes out this is this is

00:30:46.210 --> 00:30:51.429
a very kind of hot topic which is

00:30:51.429 --> 00:30:54.279
basically during transition here we'll

00:30:54.279 --> 00:30:56.639
angle that up a little bit

00:30:56.639 --> 00:31:02.019
good so during transition the the handle

00:31:02.019 --> 00:31:05.230
will have a force that takes it out this

00:31:05.230 --> 00:31:07.960
way now oftentimes it's it looks a

00:31:07.960 --> 00:31:09.249
little bit more like this where

00:31:09.249 --> 00:31:12.190
basically my hands are moving that way

00:31:12.190 --> 00:31:15.039
oh all exaggerated my hands are moving

00:31:15.039 --> 00:31:18.129
that way and the club is moving that way

00:31:18.129 --> 00:31:19.690
there's a difference they're not moving

00:31:19.690 --> 00:31:21.879
in the same direction so like in this

00:31:21.879 --> 00:31:25.029
the club is moving that way and my hands

00:31:25.029 --> 00:31:27.519
are moving that way if they go in the

00:31:27.519 --> 00:31:29.169
same direction if your club and your

00:31:29.169 --> 00:31:31.210
hands goes in the same direction then

00:31:31.210 --> 00:31:33.759
when your hands go to the left the club

00:31:33.759 --> 00:31:35.619
is gonna follow it so they go in the

00:31:35.619 --> 00:31:37.059
same direction and then they go to the

00:31:37.059 --> 00:31:41.590
left well what that means the way that

00:31:41.590 --> 00:31:43.450
they're the Tour Pros are able to get

00:31:43.450 --> 00:31:46.450
this look where basically the hands are

00:31:46.450 --> 00:31:50.529
going as the club is going out that

00:31:50.529 --> 00:31:53.049
happens from this little shallow

00:31:53.049 --> 00:31:56.289
movement of letting the club's sweetspot

00:31:56.289 --> 00:31:58.749
drop behind the hand path so that then

00:31:58.749 --> 00:32:02.169
when I pull in it's going to line back

00:32:02.169 --> 00:32:03.940
up and it's gonna fly out like that so

00:32:03.940 --> 00:32:06.820
basically if you have if you have a hard

00:32:06.820 --> 00:32:09.249
time getting that movement then you're

00:32:09.249 --> 00:32:10.600
gonna have a hard time getting the hands

00:32:10.600 --> 00:32:12.879
to go left it'll typically happen is if

00:32:12.879 --> 00:32:14.619
the hands work more down and they're in

00:32:14.619 --> 00:32:16.869
line with the club then they'll tend to

00:32:16.869 --> 00:32:19.840
go more out through the wall and if they

00:32:19.840 --> 00:32:22.149
go out through the ball you'll tend to

00:32:22.149 --> 00:32:25.090
have a little more fat thin contact

00:32:25.090 --> 00:32:28.269
little shorter flat spot might struggle

00:32:28.269 --> 00:32:29.340
with over hooking

00:32:29.340 --> 00:32:30.780
and definitely would struggle with

00:32:30.780 --> 00:32:34.650
wedges so if you're having trouble

00:32:34.650 --> 00:32:35.940
getting your hands to go to the left

00:32:35.940 --> 00:32:37.920
then I would say you got to work on the

00:32:37.920 --> 00:32:40.620
shallow movement early in order to set

00:32:40.620 --> 00:32:43.620
you up so that you can have that go more

00:32:43.620 --> 00:32:48.110
around into the left okay I had a

00:32:48.110 --> 00:32:52.260
question from McDonald this is a good

00:32:52.260 --> 00:32:53.430
one

00:32:53.430 --> 00:32:55.890
is there a swing that is easier on the

00:32:55.890 --> 00:32:57.270
back you know with all these guys

00:32:57.270 --> 00:33:01.260
getting back injuries it's it's tempting

00:33:01.260 --> 00:33:05.970
to go down that rabbit hole here's the

00:33:05.970 --> 00:33:08.640
the simple science as I understand it

00:33:08.640 --> 00:33:11.220
from working more on the rehab side as

00:33:11.220 --> 00:33:15.360
well as the golf side in order to put as

00:33:15.360 --> 00:33:17.040
little stress on the back as possible

00:33:17.040 --> 00:33:19.200
you want to use your whole spine in your

00:33:19.200 --> 00:33:21.630
whole body as much as possible so then

00:33:21.630 --> 00:33:24.720
it's distributing the load more evenly

00:33:24.720 --> 00:33:26.910
basically when you bracket weight back

00:33:26.910 --> 00:33:28.920
when you're back breaks down there's a

00:33:28.920 --> 00:33:30.870
load put on your back that is too great

00:33:30.870 --> 00:33:32.670
for your back to handle so you can

00:33:32.670 --> 00:33:36.480
either get your back in great shape so

00:33:36.480 --> 00:33:38.240
that it can handle more load or

00:33:38.240 --> 00:33:41.490
distribute the load to other places or

00:33:41.490 --> 00:33:44.670
decrease the load so basically you could

00:33:44.670 --> 00:33:46.350
swing slower so that there's less force

00:33:46.350 --> 00:33:48.660
coming back up but nobody really wants

00:33:48.660 --> 00:33:52.050
to do that so then you could try and

00:33:52.050 --> 00:33:54.360
distribute the load better by using your

00:33:54.360 --> 00:33:57.750
hips and using your spine usually what

00:33:57.750 --> 00:33:59.820
happens is if your ribcage becomes a

00:33:59.820 --> 00:34:02.190
block and you can't get any real

00:34:02.190 --> 00:34:06.600
rotation at the ribs then your back

00:34:06.600 --> 00:34:08.190
tries to rotate and it's not really good

00:34:08.190 --> 00:34:09.870
at rotating so you start to get

00:34:09.870 --> 00:34:13.320
compression and back pain is caused by

00:34:13.320 --> 00:34:14.040
compression

00:34:14.040 --> 00:34:16.500
it's either compression of nerves such

00:34:16.500 --> 00:34:19.860
as like sciatica or something like that

00:34:19.860 --> 00:34:23.160
it's compression of discs or you know

00:34:23.160 --> 00:34:25.020
like a disability ation that type of

00:34:25.020 --> 00:34:27.870
stuff or it's a compression of bone that

00:34:27.870 --> 00:34:30.030
creates osteoarthritis

00:34:30.030 --> 00:34:33.120
so but back pain is is caused by

00:34:33.120 --> 00:34:36.720
compression so there's swings that you

00:34:36.720 --> 00:34:38.760
could do that would potentially produce

00:34:38.760 --> 00:34:40.620
less compression if you're using your

00:34:40.620 --> 00:34:43.300
core well if your ribs are turning

00:34:43.300 --> 00:34:44.880
better if you have freedom of movement

00:34:44.880 --> 00:34:47.830
in the SI joints if you have a lot of

00:34:47.830 --> 00:34:51.130
hip range of motion then you don't have

00:34:51.130 --> 00:34:55.150
to take the lower back joints into quite

00:34:55.150 --> 00:34:57.970
extreme range of motion and that would

00:34:57.970 --> 00:35:00.760
be a little bit safer but there's a

00:35:00.760 --> 00:35:03.430
volume component so if you had a perfect

00:35:03.430 --> 00:35:04.990
swing perfect back and you went out and

00:35:04.990 --> 00:35:07.180
hit a thousand drivers at top speed

00:35:07.180 --> 00:35:10.150
you're the weak link in your body is

00:35:10.150 --> 00:35:12.640
probably gonna break it break down so

00:35:12.640 --> 00:35:14.440
part of the challenge is now these guys

00:35:14.440 --> 00:35:16.930
are competing more year-round they're

00:35:16.930 --> 00:35:19.540
hitting you know they're swinging faster

00:35:19.540 --> 00:35:21.430
with these lighter clubs they're putting

00:35:21.430 --> 00:35:22.780
more force through the body there's a

00:35:22.780 --> 00:35:25.720
there's a higher demand on hitting it

00:35:25.720 --> 00:35:28.030
further than they're probably ever was

00:35:28.030 --> 00:35:30.070
you know there's a lot fewer Corey Pavin

00:35:30.070 --> 00:35:33.970
shop makers out there so that recipe

00:35:33.970 --> 00:35:35.770
means that you better have your body

00:35:35.770 --> 00:35:37.990
were in good working order or you're

00:35:37.990 --> 00:35:42.550
gonna have some trouble with that he

00:35:42.550 --> 00:35:46.390
also asked about how do you identify

00:35:46.390 --> 00:35:48.910
what's the root cause of an issue and he

00:35:48.910 --> 00:35:53.590
also asked about can early extension one

00:35:53.590 --> 00:35:55.180
of the causes of early extension or an

00:35:55.180 --> 00:35:58.780
early release so this is actually a good

00:35:58.780 --> 00:36:03.550
little topic what causes or how do you

00:36:03.550 --> 00:36:06.880
identify what's the root cause I break

00:36:06.880 --> 00:36:08.620
it down there's three main skills you

00:36:08.620 --> 00:36:10.540
got to create speed control the path of

00:36:10.540 --> 00:36:12.130
the club and control the face

00:36:12.130 --> 00:36:14.230
controlling the path of the club is both

00:36:14.230 --> 00:36:16.270
swing direction so where is my swing

00:36:16.270 --> 00:36:18.310
pointing left or right and then low

00:36:18.310 --> 00:36:19.810
point controller where is the widest

00:36:19.810 --> 00:36:22.630
point of the swing and then face control

00:36:22.630 --> 00:36:24.700
is both relationship to the target as

00:36:24.700 --> 00:36:28.860
well as to the path of the club well I

00:36:28.860 --> 00:36:32.710
use a lot of nine to three drills to

00:36:32.710 --> 00:36:34.600
isolate is it a release problem because

00:36:34.600 --> 00:36:37.150
in a nine to three drill your body is

00:36:37.150 --> 00:36:39.220
usually in good position because you you

00:36:39.220 --> 00:36:40.510
didn't have a transition that messed it

00:36:40.510 --> 00:36:42.940
up and you got that you can get the club

00:36:42.940 --> 00:36:44.770
in pretty much more position you want so

00:36:44.770 --> 00:36:47.520
if you're doing nine to three drills and

00:36:47.520 --> 00:36:50.410
you're making a lot of solid contact

00:36:50.410 --> 00:36:51.940
with the nine to three and then you go

00:36:51.940 --> 00:36:53.490
to a full swing and it breaks down

00:36:53.490 --> 00:36:56.010
then it's probably more of a transition

00:36:56.010 --> 00:37:00.619
error than it is a release error if you

00:37:00.619 --> 00:37:03.150
struggle with nine to threes but you hit

00:37:03.150 --> 00:37:05.220
the ball better when you're doing full

00:37:05.220 --> 00:37:06.960
swings then it probably means that you

00:37:06.960 --> 00:37:09.720
have more of a release issue and if

00:37:09.720 --> 00:37:13.380
that's the case like within specifically

00:37:13.380 --> 00:37:16.080
with early extension oftentimes golfers

00:37:16.080 --> 00:37:18.570
who early extend eight nine to three

00:37:18.570 --> 00:37:19.590
drills because they don't have enough

00:37:19.590 --> 00:37:22.020
time to early extend so it the release

00:37:22.020 --> 00:37:24.030
issue shows up as a problem and they

00:37:24.030 --> 00:37:25.680
start to see that their early extension

00:37:25.680 --> 00:37:28.470
is how they control the bottom the swing

00:37:28.470 --> 00:37:30.540
in the clubface and so they have to do

00:37:30.540 --> 00:37:31.860
some release training in order to

00:37:31.860 --> 00:37:34.890
correct that other golfers no problem

00:37:34.890 --> 00:37:36.600
doing a nine to three and then they get

00:37:36.600 --> 00:37:37.830
in their full swing and they start going

00:37:37.830 --> 00:37:39.810
into early extension now it's more of a

00:37:39.810 --> 00:37:41.369
power problem it's more of how you

00:37:41.369 --> 00:37:44.010
create speed is really with that back

00:37:44.010 --> 00:37:46.260
extension like thrust early extension

00:37:46.260 --> 00:37:49.740
pattern so use nine to three drills or

00:37:49.740 --> 00:37:51.810
release drills versus full swing drills

00:37:51.810 --> 00:37:53.910
to see is that a transition error is it

00:37:53.910 --> 00:37:58.020
a release air and then you can correct

00:37:58.020 --> 00:38:02.790
the problem that way early release is it

00:38:02.790 --> 00:38:04.109
can help with low point it can help with

00:38:04.109 --> 00:38:05.670
clubface doesn't really help with power

00:38:05.670 --> 00:38:08.850
um other than some golfers feel a lot of

00:38:08.850 --> 00:38:12.000
tension as being strong right they feel

00:38:12.000 --> 00:38:13.590
a lot of tension down in the bottom and

00:38:13.590 --> 00:38:15.600
when you early release you can kind of

00:38:15.600 --> 00:38:17.850
walk on and kind of hold on on the way

00:38:17.850 --> 00:38:20.130
through instead of having more kind of

00:38:20.130 --> 00:38:24.450
softness and and width to it so that's

00:38:24.450 --> 00:38:27.570
it doesn't really it can feel powerful

00:38:27.570 --> 00:38:29.850
but it doesn't really add to creating

00:38:29.850 --> 00:38:34.530
more speed and I had one other question

00:38:34.530 --> 00:38:40.260
about from Donald can you still have a

00:38:40.260 --> 00:38:43.619
good release but with bad sequencing I

00:38:43.619 --> 00:38:45.390
thought that was an interesting question

00:38:45.390 --> 00:38:47.880
because it's basically asking like okay

00:38:47.880 --> 00:38:50.130
we know that you want to have good

00:38:50.130 --> 00:38:53.280
sequencing from lower body core arms

00:38:53.280 --> 00:38:56.040
Club all working together to pull on the

00:38:56.040 --> 00:39:00.240
on the club and create speed and we want

00:39:00.240 --> 00:39:02.270
to have a good release where the

00:39:02.270 --> 00:39:03.800
why Point and low point is ahead of the

00:39:03.800 --> 00:39:05.000
golf ball and those relate to each other

00:39:05.000 --> 00:39:06.770
so it was basically asking why do I

00:39:06.770 --> 00:39:09.680
typically train the release of either

00:39:09.680 --> 00:39:11.930
the trail arm or the lead arm why do I

00:39:11.930 --> 00:39:13.880
train the release before working too

00:39:13.880 --> 00:39:16.610
much on sequencing can you have a good

00:39:16.610 --> 00:39:20.180
release with bad sequencing yes you can

00:39:20.180 --> 00:39:23.150
have a good release with bound with bad

00:39:23.150 --> 00:39:25.580
downswing peaking order in fact many

00:39:25.580 --> 00:39:27.770
Tour Pros don't have ideal downswing

00:39:27.770 --> 00:39:29.660
peaking order so they don't fire their

00:39:29.660 --> 00:39:32.930
their body in that classic from the

00:39:32.930 --> 00:39:35.720
ground up model but they have really

00:39:35.720 --> 00:39:37.130
good releases so they hit the ball

00:39:37.130 --> 00:39:40.610
solidly they can you know they're more

00:39:40.610 --> 00:39:44.210
consistent as opposed to I've had a

00:39:44.210 --> 00:39:47.060
number of amateurs who are 10 15

00:39:47.060 --> 00:39:48.860
handicaps who have perfect looking

00:39:48.860 --> 00:39:49.910
kinematic sequences

00:39:49.910 --> 00:39:52.550
maybe they played baseball or some other

00:39:52.550 --> 00:39:54.110
sport where they learn how to create

00:39:54.110 --> 00:39:55.700
speed really well but they're not

00:39:55.700 --> 00:39:57.440
controlling the path on the clubface so

00:39:57.440 --> 00:40:00.650
I find that most amateur golfers benefit

00:40:00.650 --> 00:40:02.750
from hitting the ball solidly which

00:40:02.750 --> 00:40:04.610
comes from more of a good release and

00:40:04.610 --> 00:40:06.920
clubface control more so than sequencing

00:40:06.920 --> 00:40:10.520
now sequencing can feel really good and

00:40:10.520 --> 00:40:12.470
can be helpful for taking things to the

00:40:12.470 --> 00:40:14.870
course from the range because that's

00:40:14.870 --> 00:40:17.420
kind of like good tempo good rhythm but

00:40:17.420 --> 00:40:22.120
in general I like to make sure I'd say

00:40:22.120 --> 00:40:25.370
95% the time I'm gonna train the release

00:40:25.370 --> 00:40:30.460
before I train sequencing the only

00:40:30.460 --> 00:40:34.580
exception would be if you have like more

00:40:34.580 --> 00:40:36.440
of like an under flip pattern where you

00:40:36.440 --> 00:40:38.840
still have good arm extension so it's

00:40:38.840 --> 00:40:41.060
not a perfect release but it's good

00:40:41.060 --> 00:40:42.950
enough and your sequencing is a higher

00:40:42.950 --> 00:40:45.680
problem there if your release is more

00:40:45.680 --> 00:40:49.640
kind of internal rotation bending you

00:40:49.640 --> 00:40:51.350
know arms narrowing on the way through

00:40:51.350 --> 00:40:54.320
then I'm usually going I can't think of

00:40:54.320 --> 00:40:55.490
an exception where I'm not going in

00:40:55.490 --> 00:41:01.540
release first okay two last questions

00:41:01.540 --> 00:41:04.820
Vaughn was asking about the hit impulse

00:41:04.820 --> 00:41:07.700
from the top so many golfers struggle

00:41:07.700 --> 00:41:09.650
with you know at the top they just want

00:41:09.650 --> 00:41:12.320
to hit the ball as opposed to swing

00:41:12.320 --> 00:41:13.250
through it

00:41:13.250 --> 00:41:14.690
and what are some ways that you can work

00:41:14.690 --> 00:41:17.869
on that ironically doing the hit from

00:41:17.869 --> 00:41:20.390
the top drill gives you a little extra

00:41:20.390 --> 00:41:22.670
second up there where you can soften

00:41:22.670 --> 00:41:25.940
your arms and try to get your you know

00:41:25.940 --> 00:41:28.280
work on your transition sequencing that

00:41:28.280 --> 00:41:31.580
can work really well too would be kind

00:41:31.580 --> 00:41:35.270
of softening your your eyes and your

00:41:35.270 --> 00:41:37.280
tension and making sure that you're

00:41:37.280 --> 00:41:40.130
breathing and not holding your breath so

00:41:40.130 --> 00:41:41.750
that you have a little bit more

00:41:41.750 --> 00:41:44.990
relaxation during that transition

00:41:44.990 --> 00:41:46.849
because if you're really you know

00:41:46.849 --> 00:41:49.070
bearing down and getting ready to apply

00:41:49.070 --> 00:41:51.740
force that can create that hit from the

00:41:51.740 --> 00:41:54.410
top impulse the other things I will do

00:41:54.410 --> 00:41:57.109
is in practice I will do a lot of rhythm

00:41:57.109 --> 00:41:59.300
drills to almost trick you and what I

00:41:59.300 --> 00:42:00.890
mean by that would be like pump style

00:42:00.890 --> 00:42:05.270
where you do it one two and three and go

00:42:05.270 --> 00:42:08.810
I'll do it I'll do stuff where the where

00:42:08.810 --> 00:42:12.080
golfers are brushing the ground alright

00:42:12.080 --> 00:42:14.180
so they're making their swings and

00:42:14.180 --> 00:42:16.640
brushing the ground and then I will put

00:42:16.640 --> 00:42:19.280
the golf ball in randomly some swings I

00:42:19.280 --> 00:42:22.099
want some swings I will just to help

00:42:22.099 --> 00:42:25.339
them get out of the thought of I just

00:42:25.339 --> 00:42:26.869
need to hit the golf ball and get more

00:42:26.869 --> 00:42:29.359
into connection of how the club contacts

00:42:29.359 --> 00:42:32.890
the ground and make that the main focus

00:42:32.890 --> 00:42:36.530
the his his other question was relating

00:42:36.530 --> 00:42:42.109
to the left shoulder as the fulcrum so a

00:42:42.109 --> 00:42:47.089
la Chuck Quinton and rotary swing so the

00:42:47.089 --> 00:42:49.369
the main problem I have with the left

00:42:49.369 --> 00:42:52.700
arm being the fulcrum is that virtually

00:42:52.700 --> 00:42:55.700
every good ball striker has a little bit

00:42:55.700 --> 00:42:57.859
of this lead arm bend at some point

00:42:57.859 --> 00:42:59.630
during the downswing and the Wii term

00:42:59.630 --> 00:43:02.060
typically bends about thirty degrees at

00:43:02.060 --> 00:43:04.010
the top of the swing twenty to thirty

00:43:04.010 --> 00:43:09.290
degrees so they I think it's hard to

00:43:09.290 --> 00:43:11.420
have a really good flat spot if you if

00:43:11.420 --> 00:43:13.880
your image is basically the left arm

00:43:13.880 --> 00:43:15.830
staying totally straight and just using

00:43:15.830 --> 00:43:18.980
the wrist where if it's pulling across

00:43:18.980 --> 00:43:22.099
and extending with good wrist mechanics

00:43:22.099 --> 00:43:24.210
it's easier to have

00:43:24.210 --> 00:43:27.000
get the club to to basically release

00:43:27.000 --> 00:43:29.430
like this where if that left arm is the

00:43:29.430 --> 00:43:30.839
fulcrum it's going to start coming up

00:43:30.839 --> 00:43:32.849
pretty quickly so I tend to see more

00:43:32.849 --> 00:43:35.400
contact issues especially thin iron

00:43:35.400 --> 00:43:37.200
shots if you're using that left shoulder

00:43:37.200 --> 00:43:42.119
as the pure fulcrum last questions from

00:43:42.119 --> 00:43:43.950
Daniel he asked about over speed

00:43:43.950 --> 00:43:46.050
training and single length golf clubs

00:43:46.050 --> 00:43:47.339
just kind of wanting to get my take on

00:43:47.339 --> 00:43:47.520
that

00:43:47.520 --> 00:43:50.580
I was addressed over speed training you

00:43:50.580 --> 00:43:54.330
know at least one of these other YouTube

00:43:54.330 --> 00:43:57.630
lives over speed training can be very

00:43:57.630 --> 00:43:59.580
helpful for amplifying your current

00:43:59.580 --> 00:44:01.410
power source but I rarely see it add

00:44:01.410 --> 00:44:04.440
power sources to it so if you if you're

00:44:04.440 --> 00:44:06.390
pretty happy with your sequencing you're

00:44:06.390 --> 00:44:08.339
pretty happy with your path and you just

00:44:08.339 --> 00:44:11.220
want to rev it up that can work really

00:44:11.220 --> 00:44:14.160
well or because there's no clubface and

00:44:14.160 --> 00:44:16.500
you just you have your newer golfer and

00:44:16.500 --> 00:44:19.580
you're really poor path control then

00:44:19.580 --> 00:44:22.320
swinging a weight like the orange whip

00:44:22.320 --> 00:44:25.580
or like over or the super speed training

00:44:25.580 --> 00:44:28.349
those can help you figure out where a

00:44:28.349 --> 00:44:29.910
good path would be you still have to

00:44:29.910 --> 00:44:31.589
figure out how to get a clubface that

00:44:31.589 --> 00:44:33.570
works with a good path and that's the

00:44:33.570 --> 00:44:36.630
more I think the bigger challenge and

00:44:36.630 --> 00:44:38.040
the bigger barrier for golfers

00:44:38.040 --> 00:44:41.190
so I get most of my big distance gains

00:44:41.190 --> 00:44:43.560
from helping golfers develop a better

00:44:43.560 --> 00:44:45.750
face of half relationship and

00:44:45.750 --> 00:44:49.080
understanding how to control the bottom

00:44:49.080 --> 00:44:50.790
of the swing which frees them up to then

00:44:50.790 --> 00:44:53.520
use their body more effectively but over

00:44:53.520 --> 00:44:54.990
speed training can be really helpful

00:44:54.990 --> 00:44:58.020
especially in like a you know college

00:44:58.020 --> 00:44:59.730
players situation where you already have

00:44:59.730 --> 00:45:01.050
a pretty good swing and you're just kind

00:45:01.050 --> 00:45:03.740
of trying to ramp it up a little bit

00:45:03.740 --> 00:45:06.150
single length clubs I don't have a whole

00:45:06.150 --> 00:45:10.589
lot of experience with it I think that

00:45:10.589 --> 00:45:13.920
it you know my fear is always it becomes

00:45:13.920 --> 00:45:15.570
a major challenge when you get into the

00:45:15.570 --> 00:45:18.240
longer clubs but it might work pretty

00:45:18.240 --> 00:45:20.550
well for the shorter Club so who knows

00:45:20.550 --> 00:45:21.900
maybe down the road will have a hybrid

00:45:21.900 --> 00:45:24.630
set where you know most of your wedges

00:45:24.630 --> 00:45:26.310
are already about the same length so

00:45:26.310 --> 00:45:28.290
maybe you'll have like a mid iron length

00:45:28.290 --> 00:45:30.540
a longer Club length and then your

00:45:30.540 --> 00:45:32.400
driver 3-wood length or something like

00:45:32.400 --> 00:45:34.080
that but I don't have that much

00:45:34.080 --> 00:45:35.550
experience I've never I haven't coached

00:45:35.550 --> 00:45:37.410
anyone who's played single in clubs so

00:45:37.410 --> 00:45:42.600
I tried in myself I see Patrick Gass the

00:45:42.600 --> 00:45:43.800
little qualifier so I would be more

00:45:43.800 --> 00:45:46.530
specific are we able to see the net

00:45:46.530 --> 00:45:49.380
force from looking at the hand path on

00:45:49.380 --> 00:45:53.930
video you can see the general shape I

00:45:53.930 --> 00:45:56.820
post the video or a link of video in the

00:45:56.820 --> 00:45:58.530
bottom where I did like a 10-minute talk

00:45:58.530 --> 00:46:03.210
on looking at the net force you can see

00:46:03.210 --> 00:46:05.430
the general shape if you follow the

00:46:05.430 --> 00:46:07.260
center of mass of the club you just

00:46:07.260 --> 00:46:09.120
can't see the magnitude like you can't

00:46:09.120 --> 00:46:11.340
see how much force is being applied but

00:46:11.340 --> 00:46:13.500
you can see the general direction and

00:46:13.500 --> 00:46:16.170
the general shape because the net force

00:46:16.170 --> 00:46:18.390
will move the center of mass so like in

00:46:18.390 --> 00:46:21.030
transition the center of mass tends to

00:46:21.030 --> 00:46:23.070
go that way that's because then the

00:46:23.070 --> 00:46:26.940
overall force is going up slightly if it

00:46:26.940 --> 00:46:28.860
goes more like that then that would be

00:46:28.860 --> 00:46:31.980
the net force going down so you can get

00:46:31.980 --> 00:46:35.280
a decent sense of the net force by

00:46:35.280 --> 00:46:40.800
looking at video all right well I want

00:46:40.800 --> 00:46:42.810
to thank everybody for submitting their

00:46:42.810 --> 00:46:45.000
questions ahead of time like I said I

00:46:45.000 --> 00:46:46.980
had a lot didn't quite get through all

00:46:46.980 --> 00:46:48.570
of them I'll save a few for the next one

00:46:48.570 --> 00:46:50.790
so sorry if I I didn't get to address

00:46:50.790 --> 00:46:53.130
your questions if you have anything

00:46:53.130 --> 00:46:54.720
you'd like to see me discuss next time

00:46:54.720 --> 00:46:57.060
please send questions to support at golf

00:46:57.060 --> 00:46:59.430
smart Academy com if you're not a member

00:46:59.430 --> 00:47:01.530
and you want to see all these different

00:47:01.530 --> 00:47:03.420
videos that we're talking about head

00:47:03.420 --> 00:47:04.950
over to golf smart Academy and sign up

00:47:04.950 --> 00:47:08.670
for a free trial membership or if you're

00:47:08.670 --> 00:47:11.280
looking to get a better sense of my

00:47:11.280 --> 00:47:13.770
overall teaching philosophy this is my

00:47:13.770 --> 00:47:16.320
textbook stocked or swing released in

00:47:16.320 --> 00:47:19.110
November I've had a lot of positive

00:47:19.110 --> 00:47:22.320
responses to it it takes a lot of the

00:47:22.320 --> 00:47:24.120
golf science and breaks it down into

00:47:24.120 --> 00:47:27.450
hopefully digestible chunks and then if

00:47:27.450 --> 00:47:29.220
you want to understand one of those

00:47:29.220 --> 00:47:31.080
chunks a little bit deeper that's where

00:47:31.080 --> 00:47:32.670
the videos on the site really come in

00:47:32.670 --> 00:47:35.580
handy so thank you again for attending

00:47:35.580 --> 00:47:37.830
and send your questions we'll be ready

00:47:37.830 --> 00:47:39.270
to do another one of these in the near

00:47:39.270 --> 00:47:41.420
future
