Bump? or Not to Bump?

I received an Email from one of my students: Do I need to bump the hips to the left before I turn them, or do I just turn them after I have completed my backswing?  RegardsEddie Hi Eddie  If you were able to maintain at least 60% of your weight forward, you will be able

Isometric Impact Drill

I created a drill to “imprint” impact into muscle memory. I call it the “Isometric Impact Drill”. The key to incorporate this memory, is to repeatedly setup with a golf club head up against something stationary like a door jamb or to the side at the bottom of some stairs… some place that is solid,

No Hit at the Ball

An ideal golf shot has no distinguishable change at the ball, meaning no “hit” at, or “chop” at, like an axe into a tree. There should be no change other that a predetermined* continued acceleration to the finish. Now, this does not mean you can’t hit the ball various distances with the same club. Absolutely

Impact Leverage – Weak Wrists vs. Bowed Out Front Wrist

This is an idea that I’ve had about “why” a slightly bowed out front wrist at impact, feels so SOLID and powerful… and thought I’d share: Given #1: I’ve mentioned many times, that a solid golf shot at impact, will have the shaft inline with the front arm, leading the club head, and (with my

The Snow Eagle

This is just a fun post of something I thought was kind of cool. Was the middle of winter and it looked like it might snow, but that didn’t keep us off the course. We had just teed it up on #1 when a few flakes started to fall. We didn’t care and teed off.

Before, In and After the Moment

Wow, what’s all that have to do with golf? It is my opinion that, there are 3 types of “focus” or “thinking” needed to perform consistently and develop your golf game. Before, in and after “The Moment”. Before the Moment: The “time” during the off season, or before your round, or between holes, or just

Constant Arm Pressure – Golf Swing

I have mentioned many times over the years, to keep “constant” grip pressure during the entire golf swing. This concept really lets the body take control for a more repeatable swing. I’ve discovered that a certain number of golfers, will keep their grip pressure constant, but through impact, they allow their “arms” to take over

Control the Front Arm for a Consistent Golf Swing

The golf swing is moving so fast, there is no time to “fix” something during the swing. My method looks to remove or control the “pitfalls” that ruin the swing. One pitfall is the front arm. The front arm acts as an extension of the golf club. That front arm and shaft better be working

What Opens the Club Face? It Started Square

Q. I was trying to figure out what was causing me to open my club face on the downswing when I had had a nice square face during the shoulder turn. Could it be that I am starting my body rotation before the momentum of my club is complete and therefore my body is getting

Fixed Wrist Drill – Square Club Face & Correct Shaft Angle

This little drill will fix so many problems related to opening, closing, hinging and flipping the club head during the golf swing. This video assumes you already know the DUPLESSISGOLF setup*. * If you are unsure about how to setup (precursor for doing this drill), please click here… Ross
