00:00:00.380 --> 00:00:02.850
let's take a look at my swing back from

00:00:02.850 --> 00:00:05.549
when I used to play competitively first

00:00:05.549 --> 00:00:06.990
thing I'll do is I'll just let it play

00:00:06.990 --> 00:00:09.960
through somewhat slowly and you can look

00:00:09.960 --> 00:00:12.210
at whatever pieces you want to we're

00:00:12.210 --> 00:00:13.530
gonna look at a couple different swings

00:00:13.530 --> 00:00:16.410
so this first one is a 3-wood and then

00:00:16.410 --> 00:00:19.230
we'll look at a 7-iron from face on end

00:00:19.230 --> 00:00:21.539
down the line I'm going to show you how

00:00:21.539 --> 00:00:24.180
my swing demonstrates how the key

00:00:24.180 --> 00:00:26.359
movements that I teach in the GSA system

00:00:26.359 --> 00:00:29.760
establish good leg in good swing plane

00:00:29.760 --> 00:00:31.920
both of which help you with distance and

00:00:31.920 --> 00:00:34.230
consistency where what I've found is

00:00:34.230 --> 00:00:35.820
that golfers who've simply try and

00:00:35.820 --> 00:00:38.129
create lag or try and create swing plane

00:00:38.129 --> 00:00:40.860
don't create near the level of distance

00:00:40.860 --> 00:00:43.350
and consistency as those who do it

00:00:43.350 --> 00:00:47.489
through training movements so to look at

00:00:47.489 --> 00:00:50.070
lag let's go up to the top of the swing

00:00:50.070 --> 00:00:53.640
and we'll see that as I start down the

00:00:53.640 --> 00:00:55.079
first thing to move is going to be my

00:00:55.079 --> 00:00:56.879
lower body followed by my ribcage

00:00:56.879 --> 00:01:00.899
followed finally by my arms so one way

00:01:00.899 --> 00:01:04.049
that you can look at if the lower body

00:01:04.049 --> 00:01:06.630
has initiated the downswing is when I

00:01:06.630 --> 00:01:09.240
get to this position here where the belt

00:01:09.240 --> 00:01:11.189
buckle is roughly pointed out at the

00:01:11.189 --> 00:01:13.229
golf ball I want the left arm be

00:01:13.229 --> 00:01:16.380
somewhere around parallel many amateurs

00:01:16.380 --> 00:01:18.330
when the belt buckle is pointed at the

00:01:18.330 --> 00:01:21.060
golf ball would have their left arm way

00:01:21.060 --> 00:01:22.500
down here in front of their left thigh

00:01:22.500 --> 00:01:24.299
that would be a clear indication that

00:01:24.299 --> 00:01:26.009
they're starting everything in their

00:01:26.009 --> 00:01:28.560
body together we're in this video I'm

00:01:28.560 --> 00:01:29.970
clearly demonstrating that I'm starting

00:01:29.970 --> 00:01:32.549
with my lower body the next piece the

00:01:32.549 --> 00:01:35.520
leg is going to be rotating my trunk or

00:01:35.520 --> 00:01:38.070
my ribcage this will be evident by the

00:01:38.070 --> 00:01:40.650
time or by looking at where the arms are

00:01:40.650 --> 00:01:42.329
when they get in front of the golf ball

00:01:42.329 --> 00:01:46.079
so if I were to draw a line up here you

00:01:46.079 --> 00:01:49.350
can see that the hands are roughly in in

00:01:49.350 --> 00:01:52.320
front or even with the golf ball right

00:01:52.320 --> 00:01:55.409
so the back of my left hand right here

00:01:55.409 --> 00:01:57.420
is about even with the golf ball when

00:01:57.420 --> 00:01:59.070
the club is about parallel to the ground

00:01:59.070 --> 00:02:02.280
now this did not happen because I was

00:02:02.280 --> 00:02:04.530
holding my wrist back this happened

00:02:04.530 --> 00:02:06.360
because I was doing the proper movement

00:02:06.360 --> 00:02:08.280
to square the club face and I was

00:02:08.280 --> 00:02:11.060
creating the speed from my lower body

00:02:11.060 --> 00:02:13.780
during the next phase would be

00:02:13.780 --> 00:02:15.760
the release where my hands are getting

00:02:15.760 --> 00:02:18.790
out in front of the golf ball when I'm

00:02:18.790 --> 00:02:21.010
making contact with the golf ball and my

00:02:21.010 --> 00:02:23.800
arms are now extending to transfer that

00:02:23.800 --> 00:02:26.620
energy that my body has created so this

00:02:26.620 --> 00:02:29.560
is a clear indication of how lag is

00:02:29.560 --> 00:02:31.930
created in the golf swing and why a

00:02:31.930 --> 00:02:34.900
little five foot ten hundred sixty pound

00:02:34.900 --> 00:02:37.690
golfer like myself was able to hit many

00:02:37.690 --> 00:02:40.780
par fives into and take a crack at most

00:02:40.780 --> 00:02:43.660
par fours that were under 350 off the

00:02:43.660 --> 00:02:46.870
tee so using the body correctly is one

00:02:46.870 --> 00:02:48.250
of the biggest ways to create

00:02:48.250 --> 00:02:51.510
pound-for-pound distance

00:02:53.090 --> 00:02:55.819
now let's take a look at how I

00:02:55.819 --> 00:02:58.310
demonstrate the GSA system movements

00:02:58.310 --> 00:03:00.140
while I'm swinging with an iron again

00:03:00.140 --> 00:03:01.610
this is back from when I used to play

00:03:01.610 --> 00:03:05.780
competitively now what we'll show from

00:03:05.780 --> 00:03:06.950
this point of view is we're going to

00:03:06.950 --> 00:03:09.560
show how these movements create swing

00:03:09.560 --> 00:03:12.590
plane we're what most golfers do is they

00:03:12.590 --> 00:03:14.810
try to manufacture they try to get the

00:03:14.810 --> 00:03:17.300
club on plane by just putting the club

00:03:17.300 --> 00:03:20.300
there as opposed to using the arms

00:03:20.300 --> 00:03:21.830
correctly now there's a couple different

00:03:21.830 --> 00:03:25.130
ways to draw swing plane one would be if

00:03:25.130 --> 00:03:27.739
I draw a line up the shaft from the

00:03:27.739 --> 00:03:30.470
start position one would be if I draw a

00:03:30.470 --> 00:03:33.200
line from the hosel to the point of the

00:03:33.200 --> 00:03:35.630
elbow but I think and those are both

00:03:35.630 --> 00:03:37.970
okay way it's the draw swing plane I

00:03:37.970 --> 00:03:41.660
think the most accurate way is to go to

00:03:41.660 --> 00:03:44.810
impact and then draw a line from the

00:03:44.810 --> 00:03:47.180
point of the hosel to roughly where the

00:03:47.180 --> 00:03:49.459
grip would be now if I were to go

00:03:49.459 --> 00:03:51.920
backward from here you would see that

00:03:51.920 --> 00:03:55.130
the club is slightly under plane and my

00:03:55.130 --> 00:03:57.440
hands are slightly above it until I make

00:03:57.440 --> 00:04:01.010
contact and then the hosel and my grip

00:04:01.010 --> 00:04:02.870
end of the club or both roughly on the

00:04:02.870 --> 00:04:04.820
swing plane on the way through so I had

00:04:04.820 --> 00:04:06.920
a path that came slightly from the

00:04:06.920 --> 00:04:09.709
inside which gave me the draw now let's

00:04:09.709 --> 00:04:11.420
take a look at how the movements that we

00:04:11.420 --> 00:04:13.910
talked about in the when looking at my

00:04:13.910 --> 00:04:17.269
3-wood created the swing plane so the

00:04:17.269 --> 00:04:18.799
first movement that's gonna happen is my

00:04:18.799 --> 00:04:20.630
lower body is going to initiate the

00:04:20.630 --> 00:04:23.300
downswing so from this point of view you

00:04:23.300 --> 00:04:25.340
can see that my thighs are roughly

00:04:25.340 --> 00:04:29.600
parallel to the target line before my or

00:04:29.600 --> 00:04:31.039
right around when my left arm is

00:04:31.039 --> 00:04:33.229
parallel to the ground this we saw from

00:04:33.229 --> 00:04:35.780
the face on view as the belt buckle

00:04:35.780 --> 00:04:38.450
pointing at the golf ball the next piece

00:04:38.450 --> 00:04:41.389
would be looking at my chest and when my

00:04:41.389 --> 00:04:43.340
chest is pointing at the golf ball

00:04:43.340 --> 00:04:46.010
roughly when my hands are even with it

00:04:46.010 --> 00:04:48.740
and from here you'll see the arms

00:04:48.740 --> 00:04:51.889
finally release the club it's this

00:04:51.889 --> 00:04:54.350
transition movement from the body where

00:04:54.350 --> 00:04:56.870
the lower body initiates with a lateral

00:04:56.870 --> 00:04:59.330
movement as well as a rotation the upper

00:04:59.330 --> 00:05:00.830
body waiting it's turn and then the

00:05:00.830 --> 00:05:03.590
upper body rotating and then finally the

00:05:03.590 --> 00:05:06.090
hands extending that create

00:05:06.090 --> 00:05:08.250
the appearance of the club swinging down

00:05:08.250 --> 00:05:10.530
on a swing plane is not because I

00:05:10.530 --> 00:05:12.750
actively tried to get the club to swing

00:05:12.750 --> 00:05:15.800
down on plane

00:05:19.000 --> 00:05:20.990
now let's take a look at the

00:05:20.990 --> 00:05:22.699
similarities and the differences between

00:05:22.699 --> 00:05:25.699
my iron and my driver's wing so if I go

00:05:25.699 --> 00:05:27.919
up to the top of the swing with both and

00:05:27.919 --> 00:05:30.470
just for reference sake you can see that

00:05:30.470 --> 00:05:33.349
I've drawn a vertical line roughly up

00:05:33.349 --> 00:05:35.180
from the back of the golf ball now we

00:05:35.180 --> 00:05:37.819
can see that with the 3-wood there's

00:05:37.819 --> 00:05:39.740
clearly some space between my head and

00:05:39.740 --> 00:05:42.020
this line with my iron my head stays a

00:05:42.020 --> 00:05:43.520
little bit more center in and up against

00:05:43.520 --> 00:05:47.300
this line as I come down with the iron

00:05:47.300 --> 00:05:49.360
like so you'll see that my shirt buttons

00:05:49.360 --> 00:05:52.069
roughly return to that position on top

00:05:52.069 --> 00:05:53.840
of the line now I still have a fair

00:05:53.840 --> 00:05:55.190
amount of access tilt which is part of

00:05:55.190 --> 00:05:56.990
the reason why I struggled a little bit

00:05:56.990 --> 00:05:59.300
with wedges but you can see that my

00:05:59.300 --> 00:06:01.580
shirt buttons are pretty much over the

00:06:01.580 --> 00:06:03.710
golf ball with this 7-iron which part of

00:06:03.710 --> 00:06:05.360
the reason I was a pretty good

00:06:05.360 --> 00:06:09.289
mid and long iron player now here with

00:06:09.289 --> 00:06:12.199
the 3-wood you'll see that while my

00:06:12.199 --> 00:06:13.639
upper body drifts a little bit forward

00:06:13.639 --> 00:06:17.060
during transition when I get to the

00:06:17.060 --> 00:06:18.860
point where I'm making contact with the

00:06:18.860 --> 00:06:23.240
golf ball my shirt buttons are still a

00:06:23.240 --> 00:06:25.250
couple inches are a few inches behind

00:06:25.250 --> 00:06:27.830
the golf ball that's one of the big

00:06:27.830 --> 00:06:31.310
differences in the ideal driver and the

00:06:31.310 --> 00:06:33.650
ideal iron swing but you can see that

00:06:33.650 --> 00:06:36.979
the pieces of creating lag the pieces of

00:06:36.979 --> 00:06:40.039
sequencing the big pieces of this the

00:06:40.039 --> 00:06:42.020
stock whole swing are roughly the same

00:06:42.020 --> 00:06:45.380
if you looked at both of these positions

00:06:45.380 --> 00:06:48.560
with me at left are in parallel you can

00:06:48.560 --> 00:06:51.050
see a fair amount of similarities a fair

00:06:51.050 --> 00:06:53.120
amount of lag there's a lot of similar

00:06:53.120 --> 00:06:54.800
movements happening here in the golf

00:06:54.800 --> 00:06:56.629
swing and that's what we teach in the

00:06:56.629 --> 00:06:59.060
golf smart Academy system as the

00:06:59.060 --> 00:07:01.069
movements of your stock full swing and

00:07:01.069 --> 00:07:02.539
then you learn how to make these minor

00:07:02.539 --> 00:07:04.819
adjustments in order to maximize either

00:07:04.819 --> 00:07:06.949
your iron game or your driver game and

00:07:06.949 --> 00:07:08.900
these are my examples that I'm

00:07:08.900 --> 00:07:10.849
demonstrating here in this swing

00:07:10.849 --> 00:07:14.060
analysis of myself if you have any

00:07:14.060 --> 00:07:16.129
questions I would love to hear from you

00:07:16.129 --> 00:07:19.069
