"The wipe" is a very important move for consistent & solid ball-striking. It improves sequencing, increases shaft lean, and helps get the "low-point" ahead of the golf ball. These are all critical for eliminating a severe left miss or hook. If you tend to default to more of a flip-style release and a "stall" of the body, this visual should provide you with a clear understanding of the release pattern we are looking to create.

This concept video is visualizing the rotational wipe.
00:00:05,000 --> 00:00:11,000
So I talk about the wipe as a sequencing thing and a positional thing and it's a great
00:00:11,000 --> 00:00:16,000
movement for helping get the low point ahead of the golf ball and for helping eliminate
00:00:16,000 --> 00:00:18,000
the left shot.
00:00:18,000 --> 00:00:22,000
So that solid strikes and less fear of a hook.
00:00:22,000 --> 00:00:26,000
Those are really big important concepts for most good golfers.
00:00:26,000 --> 00:00:33,000
So what I'm going to do with this is I'm going to show you a kind of visual representation
00:00:33,000 --> 00:00:39,000
of how the wipe helps create shaft lean which helps move the low point forward as well
00:00:39,000 --> 00:00:43,000
as prevent my ability to close the club face.
00:00:43,000 --> 00:00:47,000
So what I've got here is a whole hoop and the alignment stick.
00:00:47,000 --> 00:00:51,000
So the alignment stick is basically going to represent the golf club.
00:00:51,000 --> 00:00:56,000
So I could pivot the golf club with my hands compared to the stick or I could keep
00:00:56,000 --> 00:00:59,000
it pretty much the same here.
00:00:59,000 --> 00:01:03,000
Now what I can't do is unfortunately I can't really do the motorcycle and square the face
00:01:03,000 --> 00:01:07,000
so if I put a golf club here the club face would be out of sorts.
00:01:07,000 --> 00:01:14,000
But this will help me see or help me visualize more of this component of the sequencing
00:01:14,000 --> 00:01:16,000
to just pure shaft lean.
00:01:16,000 --> 00:01:19,000
So path not really club face.
00:01:19,000 --> 00:01:24,000
So now if I were to have my hands stay at about the same distance compared to my body
00:01:24,000 --> 00:01:28,000
we know they're going to change a bit but if I keep them at about the same distance compared
00:01:28,000 --> 00:01:35,000
to my body you can see that as I rotate through you can see that I start to create more
00:01:35,000 --> 00:01:38,000
shaft lean as my hands go past.
00:01:38,000 --> 00:01:43,000
You would also see that right around here is where they would be even with my right
00:01:43,000 --> 00:01:46,000
thigh and reaching the lowest point of the circle.
00:01:46,000 --> 00:01:52,000
If they keep going around the circle my hands are coming up as that club is going down.
00:01:52,000 --> 00:01:58,000
If we imagine I kind of got to this last minute and then let the hands deviate from
00:01:58,000 --> 00:02:02,000
the path that would create that shaft lean component.
00:02:02,000 --> 00:02:09,000
Now what many amateurs do is they get to right about here and then instead of continuing
00:02:09,000 --> 00:02:15,000
around which is that white movement they deviate they kind of let those hands go and
00:02:15,000 --> 00:02:19,000
they let the club shaft drop down towards the golf ball kind of like this.
00:02:19,000 --> 00:02:26,000
Now you could see I'm going to hit way back here unless I stop my rotation maybe bend
00:02:26,000 --> 00:02:34,000
my arms stand up lots of things that compensate for that earlier arm action or earlier
00:02:34,000 --> 00:02:37,000
kind of releasing of the wrist angles.
00:02:37,000 --> 00:02:44,000
Now don't let this be confused with releasing the unhing because the unhing is more kind
00:02:44,000 --> 00:02:49,000
of bringing it down like this not bringing it out in front of me.
00:02:49,000 --> 00:02:54,000
So I can still get some of this unhing and the white movement but it's harder to demonstrate
00:02:54,000 --> 00:02:56,000
it with these two.
00:02:56,000 --> 00:03:04,000
So what I'll do instead is now I'll bring a club head or a club into this model here
00:03:04,000 --> 00:03:09,000
and you'll see if I do that same thing now I'm going to square the club face using
00:03:09,000 --> 00:03:14,000
that motorcycle and now I'm going to keep my hands working around like I was just doing
00:03:14,000 --> 00:03:19,000
with the Hulu hoop but you'll see that I was able to rotate the club along that path
00:03:19,000 --> 00:03:21,000
and square the face.
00:03:21,000 --> 00:03:29,000
So that visual of the body continuing on the way through is one of the really helpful elite
00:03:29,000 --> 00:03:38,000
player movements for using my body and kind of really feeling this good sequence and it
00:03:38,000 --> 00:03:43,000
has the dual benefit of improving my low point and making it harder for me to hit the
00:03:43,000 --> 00:03:51,000
shot that most good players hate which is the big pull hook or over draw to the left.
00:03:51,000 --> 00:04:00,000
So now if I do one in kind of a slow motion we'll be able to see right around here.
00:04:00,000 --> 00:04:09,000
I can keep my hands working around that circle as opposed to getting to right about
00:04:09,000 --> 00:04:13,000
here and stopping and throwing the club down through there.
00:04:13,000 --> 00:04:19,000
So hopefully this Hulu hoop visual helps you to visualize how this white action works more
00:04:19,000 --> 00:04:25,000
rotationally and how it will transfer a little better low point control sequencing down
00:04:25,000 --> 00:04:25,000
to the golf ball.
