Zorro Loops - Blending Transition Arms To Release Arms For Driver

Zorro loops is designed to help you feel the change of direction from the arms dropping, or falling, and getting narrow during transition, to the arms pushing and extending during the release.

00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:03,000
The drill is Zoro loops for the driver.

00:00:03,000 --> 00:00:08,000
So Zoro loops for the driver is a great drill for feeling the blend between the shallowing

00:00:08,000 --> 00:00:15,000
during transition of the arms and then the steepening or the rotation during the release.

00:00:15,000 --> 00:00:19,000
So essentially what you're going to do, and I'll demonstrate from down the line first,

00:00:19,000 --> 00:00:23,000
is you're going to hold the club up just like it would be at the top of your swing,

00:00:23,000 --> 00:00:28,000
and then you're going to let it fall into this shallowing movement.

00:00:28,000 --> 00:00:32,000
So I'm just going to let it fall, and as it gets towards the bottom of the fall,

00:00:32,000 --> 00:00:36,000
I'm going to feel some tension in my arm, and once that tension gets close to the point

00:00:36,000 --> 00:00:41,000
where it would be too much to handle, I'm going to sling that tension kind of out towards the

00:00:41,000 --> 00:00:42,000
golf ball.

00:00:42,000 --> 00:00:47,000
So it's going to drop, and it's going to sling drop, and then sling.

00:00:47,000 --> 00:00:53,000
So from the face on view, oops, it's going to drop, and then it's going to sling.

00:00:53,000 --> 00:01:00,000
And now this is actually a much easier drill to do with the driver than it is to do with an iron,

00:01:00,000 --> 00:01:08,000
because this shallow move of just the arms is going to shallow out the club and move the bottom of the swing behind the golf ball.

00:01:08,000 --> 00:01:20,000
Now in the normal full swing, that's going to be balanced by that body rotating and being pointed out in front of the golf ball.

00:01:20,000 --> 00:01:31,000
With this drill, I'm not using a lot of the body rotation, so the bottom of the swing is actually going to be slightly behind the golf ball, which is what makes it challenging to do with an iron.

00:01:31,000 --> 00:01:34,000
With a driver, there should be relatively easy and straightforward.

00:01:34,000 --> 00:01:40,000
So there's a couple different ways that you can do it.

00:01:40,000 --> 00:01:47,000
You can either start from here, get into your golf posture, then just let this shallow, and then steepen through the release.

00:01:47,000 --> 00:01:51,000
Or you can start, you know, in your normal setup position.

00:01:51,000 --> 00:02:00,000
I like doing both, they can help you kind of discover and pay attention to different areas within this movement.

00:02:00,000 --> 00:02:09,000
So the other version would be normal driver setup, and then basically I'm just going to let it shallow.

00:02:09,000 --> 00:02:15,000
Normal driver setup, let it shallow before I then release.

00:02:16,000 --> 00:02:19,000
You can do it with or without the pumps.

00:02:19,000 --> 00:02:25,000
There's a lot of flexibility in all these drills really for kind of what your brain wants to pay attention to.

00:02:25,000 --> 00:02:28,000
So then a good little Zoro loop.

00:02:30,000 --> 00:02:31,000
Look something like that.

00:02:31,000 --> 00:02:35,000
And it'll typically hook a little bit more than it would with the full swing.

00:02:35,000 --> 00:02:44,000
But once you have that good feeling, you can then move on to taking full swings and just feeling that that Zoro loop transition kind of right.

00:02:44,000 --> 00:02:48,000
And this kind of right in this space here.

00:02:48,000 --> 00:02:53,000
Where you may be used to feeling everything kind of started at the ball straight from the top.

00:02:53,000 --> 00:03:00,000
So it really helps with that transition shallow move and the timing of these arm movements as they relate to the body.
