Trail Wrist Training - Pool Noodle

A pool noodle can be helpful for learning to visualize the release of the trail arm. This training aid can help work on the wipe movement without thinking about it. If you don't lunge forward with your upper body and hit it solid with this drill then you know your trail shoulder is working in the right direction.

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:06,000
The drill is trail risk training with the foam noodle. So this is a similar to drill to how I like to train

00:00:07,000 --> 00:00:11,000
One aspect of the trail risk for putting but often times

00:00:12,000 --> 00:00:14,000
golfers you circle with this

00:00:14,000 --> 00:00:20,000
You know, scooper flip or bending like this on the way through are really unaware of what's going on with the risk

00:00:20,000 --> 00:00:24,000
So what we're gonna do is we're gonna take a foam noodle now. This I've cut

00:00:24,000 --> 00:00:31,000
You could potentially use a you know a rolled up sock or a sock with another sock inside of it

00:00:31,000 --> 00:00:38,000
But basically what we're gonna do is we're gonna try to occupy that space between the right wrist and the club

00:00:38,000 --> 00:00:42,000
So this can be used for single arm training

00:00:43,000 --> 00:00:48,000
And basically what it's gonna force you to do is it's going to force you

00:00:49,000 --> 00:00:52,000
To get the movement to happen more from twisting the club

00:00:53,000 --> 00:00:56,000
So I can still square the face by rotating the club

00:00:57,000 --> 00:00:59,000
Like this but I can't square the face

00:01:00,000 --> 00:01:02,000
By letting it pass

00:01:02,000 --> 00:01:05,000
Which is what a scoop tends to do so now

00:01:06,000 --> 00:01:09,000
What I can do is I can work in the nine to three zone

00:01:10,000 --> 00:01:18,000
And I'll have more of a focus on what the shoulder is doing kind of for a good wipe working across my body

00:01:19,000 --> 00:01:21,000
kind of like so

00:01:21,000 --> 00:01:24,000
Now once I get into that good let's say

00:01:25,000 --> 00:01:35,000
Follow through position. I can move the noodle out of the way and I can put my grip on and I may find that the club had as a little bit more in that club had out

00:01:36,000 --> 00:01:39,000
Relationship so if I do that facing here

00:01:40,000 --> 00:01:44,000
Kind of in slow motion that club is twisting

00:01:45,000 --> 00:01:49,000
As it's coming through kind of like that and then I can take that away

00:01:50,000 --> 00:01:51,000
Put my hands there

00:01:52,000 --> 00:01:56,000
And then try to get back to that position. So this will help a little bit more

00:01:56,000 --> 00:02:01,000
With the dissociation of the arm. It'll help a little bit more with building

00:02:02,000 --> 00:02:04,000
More of a shoulder controlled

00:02:04,000 --> 00:02:11,000
Release or bottom of swing as opposed to a very much a hand or flip style bottom of this wing

00:02:11,000 --> 00:02:13,000
So if you're struggling with your trail arm only release

00:02:14,000 --> 00:02:20,000
That's a good compliment to some of the sing-larm drills to really focus in on the shaft rotation as

00:02:20,000 --> 00:02:25,000
Opposed through the flip or how you're squaring the face so from face on

00:02:27,000 --> 00:02:31,000
It looks a little bit more like that in slow motion

00:02:34,000 --> 00:02:37,000
You can see that most of the movement is happening

00:02:38,000 --> 00:02:46,000
Through the arm and through the shoulder as opposed to down at the wrist from the down the line if I do that correctly

00:02:46,000 --> 00:02:52,000
The club stays a little bit more out as the grip works more in front

00:02:53,000 --> 00:02:56,000
It's a pretty hard forearm work so you won't be able to do

00:02:57,000 --> 00:03:00,000
Too many of those before you should put both hands on the club and try to test it
