Relax movement in Planemate drills - Question

Recommended Posts

I have been using the Tourstriker planemate, and I am enjoying it. However, I don't quite know if I am doing the "relax" part of the resist relax rotate movement properly. All they said in the protocol was to "relax the wrists." I understand the point is to get the club on a shallow plane and then turn through impact. 

What I am currently doing is after resisting the band to the top I do the "motorcycle move" which bows my left wrist and puts the club on a shallower plane. Is that correct? Can anyone explain the "relax" component in greater detail?

You've got it. Bow the lead wrist and ulnar deviate the trail wrist (a down cast movement). Get the trail shoulder into external rotation (like skipping a stone). You might get better responses in the Planemate thread. Have you watched the advanced protocols that unlock when you register?

Just watched the advanced protocols. They don't seem to say to do that move explicitly. Instead, they say "Put pressure onto the left heel to start the swing and the club naturally shallows." They then said they wanted us to do that 30 times where we press into the left heel from the top of the swing to shallow. So is the motorcycle move and ulnar deviation something that happens naturally or should I intentionally do that? Martin Chuck did say "Some players do like to add a little bit of hand movement into the shallowing."

I love my PM! I think it's helped more with my mental framework of the golf swing then actually forcing positions. Don't get me wrong the feels are great but it's more powerful knowing the why. As far as the relax position, I don't think wrist angles or anything, I just try and get the COM of the club head deeper behind my hands in transition. Takes care of everything else assuming you've arrived at the top correctly.
