Just want you all to know, I’ve released a Cause/Fix and more iPhone/iPad app called iFixGolf. You can search iTunes or use this link to view iFixGolf If so inclined, please rate it. It is the first of many on the way… Thanks, Ross
This drill will help you to keep your hands passive, allowing the Large Muscles to take over for more consistency and power:
At setup, you want to sit down athletically like a quarterback, not bent over, not on your toes. It’s a ready position like all other athletic sports… basketball defender, wrestler, like getting ready to jump straight up. If you learn to setup this way to the golf ball, your spine is centered and counterbalanced straight down into your body and it will maintain that angle on its own. You can actually use this natural setup to stay centered and gain a lot of confidence in the ability to return to the ball and thru to a balanced finish.
If you setup with your weight on your toes, bent over and reach out… you are in trouble. The body does not want to stay this contrived way, it will try to right itself during the swing or you will have to try to “Maintain” this awkward position to return to the ball.
Make it easy! Learn to setup in balance like an Athlete… Ross
