This drill video is called Zoro loops and it's the help you feel this transition
00:00:04,000 --> 00:00:08,000
move blending into the release, at least from the arms perspective.
00:00:08,000 --> 00:00:13,000
So what's very common is it kind of feels natural letting my arms getting close
00:00:13,000 --> 00:00:18,000
during transition kind of like so and it kind of feels normal or natural letting
00:00:18,000 --> 00:00:22,000
my arms extend but there's this kind of ambiguous zone of when I go from
00:00:22,000 --> 00:00:27,000
bringing in to going out where a lot of golfers tend to have a lot of struggles.
00:00:27,000 --> 00:00:33,000
So we're going to do Zoro swings which is basically learning how to swing just the arms
00:00:33,000 --> 00:00:38,000
like gravity accelerate the club as we square it and then let us accelerate with gravity
00:00:38,000 --> 00:00:41,000
almost like speeding through a turn.
00:00:41,000 --> 00:00:42,000
So here's how you're going to do it.
00:00:42,000 --> 00:00:46,000
You're going to take your normal grip, hold the club up in front of you and if you
00:00:46,000 --> 00:00:49,000
remember I talk about letting the forearms flatten so we're going to let the forearms
00:00:49,000 --> 00:00:54,000
flatten until the club is basically creating a stretch in kind of the lead part of my
00:00:54,000 --> 00:00:58,000
wrist or the trail part of my back wrist.
00:00:58,000 --> 00:00:59,000
So it'll be kind of like this.
00:00:59,000 --> 00:01:02,000
This is Stage 1.
00:01:02,000 --> 00:01:08,000
Now Stage 2 is once it gets to this position I'm now going to redirect that stretch
00:01:08,000 --> 00:01:12,000
to take me through to this release where my left wrist stays flat.
00:01:12,000 --> 00:01:16,000
So in this drop you'll see I'm going into that good motorcycle position, right?
00:01:16,000 --> 00:01:20,000
There's my delivery position so it's kind of falling into this and then from here I'm
00:01:20,000 --> 00:01:21,000
going to swing the club.
00:01:21,000 --> 00:01:28,000
So it has a little bit of a Zoro feel to me just like so and you'll finish with that
00:01:28,000 --> 00:01:35,000
left wrist kind of pointing flat or even down but Zoro swings kind of like this.
00:01:35,000 --> 00:01:40,000
Zoro swings right when it drops we kind of redirect the force just like so.
00:01:40,000 --> 00:01:45,000
Now we'll do a few where we're hitting some of the golf balls while doing the Zoro
00:01:45,000 --> 00:01:46,000
00:01:46,000 --> 00:01:48,000
So you're going to bring your feet together.
00:01:48,000 --> 00:01:51,000
You can start by standing up tall and just getting used to what it's going to look
00:01:51,000 --> 00:01:52,000
00:01:52,000 --> 00:01:53,000
That's why I have a shaft on the ground.
00:01:53,000 --> 00:01:57,000
So this Zoro move is going to drop the club way behind me so it's pointed way out to
00:01:57,000 --> 00:02:03,000
right field and then it's going to rotate just like we've been practicing in the release.
00:02:03,000 --> 00:02:09,000
Now I'm going to be extremely likely to hit this fat because I'm not having the body
00:02:09,000 --> 00:02:11,000
movements that I would normally have.
00:02:11,000 --> 00:02:15,000
So if you're a beginner I recommend teeing the ball up or if you're a high handicap
00:02:15,000 --> 00:02:19,000
or a recommendation teeing the ball up when you're doing this isolation drill.
00:02:19,000 --> 00:02:23,000
And if you're low handicap or you can give it a go it's definitely tricky but it's doable.
00:02:23,000 --> 00:02:25,000
So you take it up just like so.
00:02:25,000 --> 00:02:32,000
You're going to then drop it into the Zoro move just like so.
00:02:32,000 --> 00:02:37,000
And this is learning how to shallow the forms.
00:02:37,000 --> 00:02:39,000
00:02:39,000 --> 00:02:45,000
It's learning how to shallow the forms as well as how to get extension on the way through
00:02:45,000 --> 00:02:47,000
because those two are highly related.
00:02:47,000 --> 00:02:50,000
If you go up to the top of the swing and you're an over the top swing or what you're
00:02:50,000 --> 00:02:54,000
probably going to do is instead of dropping down like this you're going to feel like
00:02:54,000 --> 00:02:57,000
the club just goes across like so.
00:02:57,000 --> 00:03:01,000
It would be just going across straight from the top of the swing as opposed to having the
00:03:01,000 --> 00:03:04,000
little Zoro whip.
00:03:04,000 --> 00:03:09,000
Well that going across is going to get the path coming outside to in which will then typically
00:03:09,000 --> 00:03:11,000
cause you to bend your arms coming through.
00:03:11,000 --> 00:03:15,000
So you can practice this little Zoro move.
00:03:15,000 --> 00:03:21,000
And then once you have a feel for it you can move it back into full swings feeling that
00:03:21,000 --> 00:03:24,000
Zoro move help that release as you come through.
00:03:24,000 --> 00:03:28,000
So try that to work on how you blend the transition into the release.
00:03:28,000 --> 00:03:33,000
So I realized I forgot to film the down the line view so we'll take a look from here.
00:03:33,000 --> 00:03:38,000
Now basically that Zoro loop again is going to be free falling just kind of dropping the
00:03:38,000 --> 00:03:40,000
arms and then extending them out.
00:03:40,000 --> 00:03:43,000
Dropping the arms and extending them out.
00:03:43,000 --> 00:03:49,000
Over the golf ball that would look like Gerrup, free fall and then extend and you can actually
00:03:49,000 --> 00:03:50,000
00:03:50,000 --> 00:03:54,000
Your tendency doing this will be to hit it a little fat or a little thin because you'll
00:03:54,000 --> 00:04:00,000
be more from the inside unless you add body rotation speed.
00:04:00,000 --> 00:04:03,000
So trying it from down the line.
00:04:03,000 --> 00:04:09,000
So we're just going to drop it up kind of like so.
00:04:09,000 --> 00:04:18,000
Again it's a tricky contact drill so be patient with yourself but then you can take it
00:04:18,000 --> 00:04:26,000
into the feeling of the full swing.
00:04:26,000 --> 00:04:29,000
Left the face a little bit there but pretty good Zoro.
00:04:29,000 --> 00:04:34,000
So we'll try to get one a little bit more front of the camera.
00:04:34,000 --> 00:04:36,000
There we go.
00:04:36,000 --> 00:04:37,000
I think that'll look pretty good.
00:04:37,000 --> 00:04:42,000
So again it's kind of free falling during that transition and then there when I'm vertical
00:04:42,000 --> 00:04:57,000
exaggerate it but because of the spine angle it barely looks like it's falling.
00:04:57,000 --> 00:04:59,000
Zoro loops from the down the line.
00:04:59,000 --> 00:05:04,000
Great tempo drill for bridging delivery or transition into the release.
