Swingyde Help...


Recommended Posts

How do I know if I'm using it correctly?
Just a little background: I've been playing golf for about 1.5 years and shoot in the upper 90's. I just bought a Swingyde but I'm not sure if I'm using it correctly. I've heard some great feedback about this product and I'd really like to get the most benefit from my range time. I’m VERY inconsistent…honestly, out of 100 balls (to keep the math simple) I’ll have about 20 descent shots, 20 fat shots, 30 thin shots, 10 pull/hooks, and 20 push/slices. :)

When I get to the top of my backswing, it is sitting in the right position because I can feel it on my left wrist (I am right handed). But when I finish my swing, my left wrist is cocked (right wrist is flat) and the swingyde is nowhere near my left wrist (it’s almost closer to my right wrist).

Am I doing something very fundamentally wrong? Does the swingyde work best with a neutral grip? I put the swingyde on the club square to the clubface, but don’t know if I need to adjust it based on my grip (I have a fairly strong grip). Should I work towards a neutral grip? :beee:

If it promotes a downward strike, can I use it with a driver? Are there any adjustments that I need to make to use it properly with a driver?

Thanks for taking the time to read this and I welcome any comments/feedback you all can offer!

Regards,
Tyler

Tyler......I use it for a number of things.......

 

- to get the player to "feel" where/how to "set" the club.......

- Get's the clubface in a GREAT POSITION......

- to "hold the angle" in the transition/downswing......you simply keep it touching for as long as you can in the transition/downswing........I like to have guy's hit short wedge shots trying to keep it resting on their left forearm for as long as they can........Zach Johnson can keep it on there all the way THROUGH impact.......that's why he "rotates" so well.......however, he's got a pretty shut clubface at the top, rotates, and "hold's on".......I prefer a SQUARE face at the top and then a bit more "natural" release of the clubface so I like to see it seperate in the impact zone.......but you don't consciously TRY and "seperate"......physics does it.......:)

 

The SG MUST be "aligned" properly or it won't work.......and that's kinda hard to describe........your goal is to make sure the clubface is square to your left forearm when the SG rests against your LEFT forearm at the top of your backswing.........you also MUST make sure that the guide isn't attached too low on the grip.....I usually attach it directly below right index finger.......or very close......
