  1. When doing this drill, what do you think of the notion of the lead shoulder moving away from the chin?

  2. Paul,

    When you say move your belt buckle to initiate the downswing and maintaint the lag angle, can the same motion be accomplished by straightening the left knee? In other words would straightening of the knee occur too early in the swing or would that initiate the proper downswing?


    • This was just a drill to get the person feeling the lower body moving instead of whacking at it with the arms. If you go to straighten the left knee just make sure at the point where the left arm is parallel to the ground in the downswing both knees are still flexed. They would be because in this short period of time your belt buckle would have only turned back to the ball. I just don’t want you overdoing it and getting this leg too straight too early. Remember, this leg is not locked until the through swing when the right arm is parallel to the ground.

gam-golf-140Last week I was fortunate to get together with the resident pro for a company called GAME GOLF.  This is a new GPS stat tracking system.

This system is worn on your belt an communicates with tags that are inserted into the grips of your clubs.  More and more tour players including: Graeme McDowell, Lee Westwood and Jim Furyk are using this same device.

Tracking your stats is a great way to help lower your scores and see your progress over time.  Using the GAME GOLF stat tracker will allow you to know exactly how far you are hitting your clubs, distance hit, left or right, long or short percentages and much more!

I have posted a video of me using this amazing new product on the course.  It is not cheap but as you know I only promote product that will help your game.  I highly recommend this product.
