00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:02,000
This video is my view of impact.

00:00:02,000 --> 00:00:08,000
So what I'm going to do is I'm going to go through a handful of these impact drills, but

00:00:08,000 --> 00:00:11,000
with the GoPro on my head so you can see what's going on.

00:00:11,000 --> 00:00:14,000
So first one we're going to do is visual impact training.

00:00:14,000 --> 00:00:21,000
So I'm going to go ahead and get in my setup position and then I'm going to put the club

00:00:21,000 --> 00:00:26,000
face and my wrists in what position they'll be like an impact, which would basically look

00:00:26,000 --> 00:00:27,000
like this.

00:00:27,000 --> 00:00:30,000
I see that's going to look extremely close, but what's going to happen is when I add

00:00:30,000 --> 00:00:35,000
the merry-go-round and keep my hands in front of my body, now you're going to see that

00:00:35,000 --> 00:00:39,000
that club pretty much lines up with the golf ball just like so.

00:00:39,000 --> 00:00:41,000
So we'll do that again.

00:00:41,000 --> 00:00:45,000
So setup position, got my good neutral grip.

00:00:45,000 --> 00:00:50,000
Now I'm going to go impact position, impact position with the body.

00:00:50,000 --> 00:00:55,000
And what I can do is I can practice kind of getting that feeling all in one movement and

00:00:55,000 --> 00:00:59,000
then it becomes the impact fix.

00:00:59,000 --> 00:01:01,000

00:01:01,000 --> 00:01:07,000
So then I can go from here and I can do a few nine to three just trying to get back into

00:01:07,000 --> 00:01:09,000
that position.

00:01:09,000 --> 00:01:11,000
So go through that one more time.

00:01:11,000 --> 00:01:15,000
So we're going to do visual impact.

00:01:15,000 --> 00:01:16,000
There's that feeling of impact.

00:01:16,000 --> 00:01:17,000

00:01:17,000 --> 00:01:18,000
Now impact fix.

00:01:18,000 --> 00:01:21,000
Kind of got those moves tied together.

00:01:21,000 --> 00:01:25,000
So now we're going to go nine and try right back to there.

00:01:25,000 --> 00:01:27,000
We'll do it kind of in slow motion.

00:01:27,000 --> 00:01:30,000
Nine just like so.

00:01:30,000 --> 00:01:34,000
And then nine to three.

00:01:34,000 --> 00:01:36,000
Next one we're going to do is deconstructing the arms.

00:01:36,000 --> 00:01:42,000
So similar, but basically what I'm going to do is I'm going to get my setup position and

00:01:42,000 --> 00:01:49,000
then I'm going to flex my left wrist, extend my right wrist, and then I'm going to rotate

00:01:49,000 --> 00:01:51,000
or pronate my lean arm.

00:01:51,000 --> 00:01:56,000
So basically I'm doing this and then I'm doing that.

00:01:56,000 --> 00:02:01,000
I'm going to do the wrist and then the arm.

00:02:01,000 --> 00:02:05,000
And now I'm going to use the merry go round to bring my body back to impact.

00:02:05,000 --> 00:02:11,000
So turn and then marry around to bring my body back to impact.

00:02:11,000 --> 00:02:14,000
Now I can do a little nine to three.

00:02:14,000 --> 00:02:17,000
Just focusing on getting back into that position.

00:02:17,000 --> 00:02:21,000
So now let's take a look at one of my favorite drills, which is the force square.

00:02:21,000 --> 00:02:26,000
So I'm going to I got four T's on the ground and I'm just going to take another T to draw

00:02:26,000 --> 00:02:27,000
the lines.

00:02:27,000 --> 00:02:29,000
So you can clearly see the four different squares.

00:02:29,000 --> 00:02:35,000
So if we start with the square closest to my right foot, we would have square one, two,

00:02:35,000 --> 00:02:37,000
three and four.

00:02:37,000 --> 00:02:42,000
A club that is going to swing for a slight draw bias is going to go from this square

00:02:42,000 --> 00:02:47,000
right here, square one and exit just out, square three.

00:02:47,000 --> 00:02:53,000
So demonstrate a couple.

00:02:53,000 --> 00:02:57,000
This is what typical amateurs are going to do, which is they're going to swing more from

00:02:57,000 --> 00:03:02,000
square two to square four or slightly outside to in with a club face that's slightly

00:03:02,000 --> 00:03:04,000

00:03:04,000 --> 00:03:09,000
So now once I get this ball balanced in position, I'm going to demonstrate a little pump

00:03:09,000 --> 00:03:15,000
where I come through and I'm going to come through from square two and you can see how

00:03:15,000 --> 00:03:21,000
the club face because of the motorcycle movement is going to be roughly pointed in the general

00:03:21,000 --> 00:03:22,000
direction of the golf ball.

00:03:22,000 --> 00:03:24,000
So we'll demonstrate a couple more.

00:03:24,000 --> 00:03:29,000
So that's coming through with that lead wrist relatively flat and even though those hands

00:03:29,000 --> 00:03:36,000
are working in, the club continues to work out.

00:03:36,000 --> 00:03:41,000
So this is another example of that outside to in that most amateurs will struggle with

00:03:41,000 --> 00:03:46,000
because of either early releasing the arms or because of not using the body.

00:03:46,000 --> 00:03:50,000
If you lead with the body and just use the hands to help square the face, you're going

00:03:50,000 --> 00:03:56,000
to tend to have the club come more from the inside just like so.

00:03:56,000 --> 00:03:59,000
So these are a couple ways that I like to practice impact.

00:03:59,000 --> 00:04:03,000
Hopefully seeing my perspective on it will help you see exactly what I'm talking about when

00:04:03,000 --> 00:04:06,000
I'm describing how the face is pointed or how the body is moving.
