Wipe Then Extend Vs Extend Then Wipe

The wipe can be a tricky move for a lot of golfers, but it is absolutely critical if you want to have right side bend in your golf swing. This is more important for the longer clubs. Our other videos show that it can be done with either the right arm or the left arm, but it is a key move for triggering the tour release pattern.

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:04,000
This is really wipe or extend or extend or wipe.

00:00:04,000 --> 00:00:09,000
So this kind of is piggybacks on the timing of the arm extension.

00:00:09,000 --> 00:00:17,000
So I'm going to break it down there's basically two different arm movements that are going to occur from the shoulder elbow area.

00:00:17,000 --> 00:00:19,000
So not if we take out the form arms.

00:00:19,000 --> 00:00:24,000
There's two different shoulder arm movements that are going to occur during the downswing.

00:00:24,000 --> 00:00:32,000
One is going to be extension and then two is going to be this white movement or working more across your body.

00:00:32,000 --> 00:00:36,000
So you really have only two options since there's only two movements.

00:00:36,000 --> 00:00:45,000
You could either extend, sorry, you could extend and then wipe or you could wipe and then extend.

00:00:45,000 --> 00:00:53,000
And if you're used to looking at the golf swing, you'll be able to tell pretty quickly which one of those two is going to give this look that we want of

00:00:53,000 --> 00:01:01,000
Shaffling, you know, still having lag any of those kind of parameters that you're used to seeing in video.

00:01:01,000 --> 00:01:05,000
So if I get up here and I wipe and then extend.

00:01:05,000 --> 00:01:15,000
So if I wipe and then extend my arms, that's going to have a certain look compared to if I get over here and I extend and then I wipe.

00:01:15,000 --> 00:01:24,000
So if I and I can do it without so if I extend and then I wipe, I can do it without bending the arms, but it is easier.

00:01:24,000 --> 00:01:33,000
So if I get over here and then I extend and then wipe versus if I get over here and then I wipe and then extend.

00:01:33,000 --> 00:01:37,000
They're going to have a very different look to them.

00:01:37,000 --> 00:01:51,000
If you are struggling with getting any amount of side bend, if you side bend and you hit it fat, it typically means that you have the timing of more I'm going to extend and then wipe as opposed to wipe and then extend.

00:01:51,000 --> 00:02:02,000
And we have a number of drills to help work on that timing because that's a tricky move for a lot of amateurs, but most pros do it without even really thinking about it.

00:02:02,000 --> 00:02:12,000
Because of they've just figured out in order to hit down on the golf ball, get some good compression, create speed and give them a margin of error.

00:02:12,000 --> 00:02:20,000
They know that they have to do this little white movement and then extend even if they're not really talking about it.

00:02:20,000 --> 00:02:23,000
It's hard to tell from the down the line view.

00:02:23,000 --> 00:02:28,000
The way that you'd be able to tell is more that timing of that arm straightening.

00:02:28,000 --> 00:02:43,000
So if you tend to see the arm getting straight kind of like so, that would be extend and then wipe versus if you tend to see kind of that look there, that is the wipe and then extend.

00:02:43,000 --> 00:02:56,000
So training the timing of whether it's wiping before extending or extending before wiping can really help with your consistency of contacts with your iron play or allowing side till with the driver.

00:02:56,000 --> 00:03:08,000
So it can be a big breakthrough move for those of you in kind of the middle to high single digit in order to get down to that scratch plus to plus three handicap level.

00:03:08,000 --> 00:03:21,000
So if you're struggling with one of those two areas, experiment with the timing of these wipe drills and hopefully they'll help you make solid contact and a free up some of the side bend needed for the longer clips.
