down swing

is this correct?
I was listening to a golf tip and it said to lay a cub on the ground down the line of flight then on the back end of that club lay one off on a 45 degree and also a club off of the front end at 45 degree.

It said on your down swing when you got parallel to the ground with your club you needed to be close to lines up with the back club. I agree that would help to insure you were on a inside path, but to get that parallel your hads has to be way in front of your body and it would take a heck of the flip on the wrist to get the club head on the ball or am I missing something. I have not tried to hit a ball like that yet just tried it in the house last night and I sure do not swing that way now.If I am suppose to I have a long way to go.

On your follow though it says to some what follow the club on the 45 to insure that you are swinging around your body. I can see where that might help me because I have a tendency to follow straight through and I do not get a complete body turn.

Can some one help explain what I am missing? I know I need to practice on the wrist release. I think I am releasing early and loosing a lot of power when I do that.

Thanks for any advice.

Golf tip?......froma' Hockey player?.....:idhitit: That would mean the club would be 45 degrees INSIDE the target line when its parallel with the ground.....and if it were there, for most of us, hello shank.....hehehehe.......:crazy:

 

When the club is "level"/"parallel" with the ground on the downswing it should be somewhere very close to "parallel to the TARGET LINE"........

I wonder if they meant for the club to be at a 45* angle with an early wrist set....ala Leadbetter??? At the 3/4 back position with the club handle pointing at the target line.

 

I don't know...I've never seen that one before but I have seen some crazy stuff at the range.

 

Hey Slicefixer....good idea for a post. What's the craziest thing you've ever seen someone do at the range for a drill? I'll bet you've got some good ones.

 

Actually, wait a second...I'll start a new post....this should be good. :idhitit:

I don't know if the above path will get you to the lesson or not you may have to signup to view the lessons. I am not sure. It is a practice drill for proper attack. It is in his archive files. I understand the concept to try and insure that you are attacking from the inside and not over the top which I have a problem on. But I can not achive this much inside this late in the swing and still get to the ball, or I am still missing something.

I believe this drill is for fixing a slice that includes an outside-in attack (at least it's part of the "fixing a slice" series). Many times the extreme opposite is used to help the golfer get the feel for what "swinging from the inside" feels like. If you view video of the instructor or his students (which you can download from the swing library) you will see that when the club is exactly parallel to the ground it is even with the hands and in-line with the target. In the frame before the clubhead is behind the hands with the shaft bi-secting the right forearm (more-or-less a 45* angle), and in the frame after it is in front of the hands. During these three frames (a few thousanths of a second) he goes from 45* inside the line (inside his hands), to parallel to the line, to outside his hands. When you say "I can not achieve this much inside this late in the swing" how are you trying to do it within the few thousandths of a second you have to do it in?

 

The video assumes that the rest of your swing is fundamentally sound (as the instructor states right off). No amount of "think and react" or conscious manipulation during the downswing is going to get the club on-plane, IMO - it happens much too fast. Fix the before, fix the after, and let the downswing take care of itself.
