Marin Chuck created a great training device that goes into the grip end of the club. It allows you to get a spatial feel for the working on the motorcycle move, even if you have a hard time feeling the motions of the arms.

This drill is training the motorcycle with the educator.
00:00:03,000 --> 00:00:07,000
So as you've noticed in this site, I'm not a huge fan of training aids.
00:00:07,000 --> 00:00:12,000
They can, I think they can water down a lot of what you're feeling or what you're paying
00:00:12,000 --> 00:00:13,000
00:00:13,000 --> 00:00:19,000
But recently I was listening to a talk from Martin Hall and he exposed me to this great
00:00:19,000 --> 00:00:20,000
little training device.
00:00:20,000 --> 00:00:27,000
I used to use the swing guide, but because of, I would use it differently than how it
00:00:27,000 --> 00:00:31,000
was designed and often got into problems with how the things clicked in.
00:00:31,000 --> 00:00:36,000
So Martin Chuck, the creator of the tour striker, which I runically, I'm not a huge fan
00:00:36,000 --> 00:00:37,000
00:00:37,000 --> 00:00:41,000
He created this little simple piece of plastic called the educator.
00:00:41,000 --> 00:00:45,000
Well, we'll go to link at the bottom where you can get him.
00:00:45,000 --> 00:00:50,000
But basically, if you're struggling with working on the motorcycle movement and you're
00:00:50,000 --> 00:00:57,000
not super feel oriented, this can help you develop a visual or a sensor or a rhythm.
00:00:57,000 --> 00:01:00,000
To the motion, and I'll make sure that you're doing it correctly.
00:01:00,000 --> 00:01:04,000
If you're unsure if you're doing it, the motorcycle and enough, or the right amount.
00:01:04,000 --> 00:01:09,000
So basically all you do is you're going to stick it in.
00:01:09,000 --> 00:01:13,000
It attaches right into the grip and there's a simple little video that shows you how to do
00:01:13,000 --> 00:01:14,000
00:01:14,000 --> 00:01:15,000
It's very easy.
00:01:15,000 --> 00:01:21,000
If it's in any club and you're going to use it in the 45 degree angle.
00:01:21,000 --> 00:01:24,000
So you can either have it sticking straight up and down or out to the side, but at the
00:01:24,000 --> 00:01:30,000
middle one, the 45 degree and in line with the club base or the score lines.
00:01:30,000 --> 00:01:36,000
So now when I take my normal grip, it fits just on the inside just like so.
00:01:36,000 --> 00:01:40,000
So now I can't really move it too much or it's going to slam into my forearms.
00:01:40,000 --> 00:01:45,000
What a cool thing is, if I'm training the motorcycle, which happens during the backswing
00:01:45,000 --> 00:01:49,000
and during once the riszer relatively set, either at the end of the backswing or the
00:01:49,000 --> 00:01:55,000
start of transition, will now because I've hinged it, I have some clearance base.
00:01:55,000 --> 00:02:00,000
So now if I do the motorcycle and then I release, you can see that instead of being on the
00:02:00,000 --> 00:02:02,000
inside of forearms, it's now on the outside of my forearms.
00:02:02,000 --> 00:02:09,000
So I can practice, I can sit and kind of practice doing this little movement, which is just
00:02:09,000 --> 00:02:10,000
the motorcycle movement.
00:02:10,000 --> 00:02:15,000
You can feel you can train and see which one makes more sense to you.
00:02:15,000 --> 00:02:20,000
It does a make more sense to do it from the right arm, does it do it from the left hand,
00:02:20,000 --> 00:02:22,000
whichever you want to feel.
00:02:22,000 --> 00:02:26,000
So we can do this with the 9 to 3 version or we can do this with full shot.
00:02:26,000 --> 00:02:31,000
So in the 9 to 3, I'm just going to choke up just to hair, I'm going to get it to a,
00:02:31,000 --> 00:02:36,000
I have to go a little bit past just to have enough wrist hinge so that I can bend it like
00:02:36,000 --> 00:02:37,000
00:02:37,000 --> 00:02:43,000
If I'm doing just 9 to 3, I would want this in the full 180 degree position.
00:02:43,000 --> 00:02:49,000
That will go up to about delivery, tuck it under, and then go through just like so.
00:02:49,000 --> 00:02:54,000
And if I'm doing full swings, it will impact my follow through.
00:02:54,000 --> 00:02:59,000
You'll have to check it because he designed it so it's in there relatively loosely.
00:02:59,000 --> 00:03:02,000
So if I hit on it, I can actually move it pretty easily.
00:03:02,000 --> 00:03:04,000
So you just have to check it each swing.
00:03:04,000 --> 00:03:07,000
Make sure it's still in alignment with the club.
00:03:07,000 --> 00:03:12,000
So if I take my grip, go up towards the top of my swing.
00:03:12,000 --> 00:03:14,000
That's where I'm going to motorcycle.
00:03:14,000 --> 00:03:20,000
And you can see basically anywhere in there from there is an, is an amount of motorcycle.
00:03:20,000 --> 00:03:24,000
And you can figure out where you can use this as a reference point to figure out what's
00:03:24,000 --> 00:03:29,000
the best amount that works for you.
00:03:29,000 --> 00:03:34,000
So full swing.
00:03:34,000 --> 00:03:37,000
And it feels a little weird, especially on the follow through, because when I go through,
00:03:37,000 --> 00:03:43,000
you can see that is no longer lined up with the follow through or with the club face.
00:03:43,000 --> 00:03:48,000
Because what'll happen is if I put it back to, you're right about there.
00:03:48,000 --> 00:03:51,000
So what will happen is I'm good up until impact.
00:03:51,000 --> 00:03:57,000
And then as I go in through my release, especially right there, I'll lose that
00:03:57,000 --> 00:04:01,000
flexion in my lead wrist and I'll push the thing out of the way.
00:04:01,000 --> 00:04:06,000
But it's a great, you know, just making sure that when I get to impact,
00:04:06,000 --> 00:04:10,000
that it's on the outside, it can be a great little training device when you're working on the motorcycle,
00:04:10,000 --> 00:04:15,000
when you're working on club face control, because this gives you another end of the spectrum
00:04:15,000 --> 00:04:19,000
to kind of focus on how the hands are affecting the club face.
