Angles Jigsaw Puzzle

By now you know that I am completely hung up on angles in the golf swing. And that I see golf swing instruction ignoring this most important segment on a regular basis.

It drives me nuts.

One way to make absolutely sure that you dismiss your angles in the golf swing too early is to have a conscience objective in your mind to swing the clubhead.

This will provide you with proof that releasing the angles too early is a deadly move for a golfer. Maintaining angles through impact is the key to great ball striking. The problem has been, the written word provides less than adequate golf swing instruction for this vital move.

It is incredible difficult to get the message through to a reader. It is far better to be one on one, on the range, where you can actually see these angles. But since that is not possible, I continue to try and figure out ways to describe the angles and also methods for you all to try to see if you can get the idea.

You will not believe how magical it is to maintain these angles, just for a couple of swings. The ball will jump of your club like you have never experienced before.

So, with that in mind.. let's try this. From this point forward release the idea that you are swinging the clubhead. You do not need to do that, nor should you.

It is far more reliable to swing your hands. Once you have a decent plane to swing on. Start the whole thing by swinging your hands and not the clubhead.

You see, when you swing the clubhead, you will almost always have the clubhead moving faster than your hands. And the result is that the clubhead will out race your hands to the impact position. In other words, the clubhead will be ahead of your hands.

This is an early release position. A very serious power drain, and can lead to an over the top move. Which can and most often does, lead to a slice. UGH!

So keeping it simple. Create the right wrist angle at setup but pushing your right wrist bent. Move the angle into the backswing with your shoulders maintaining the angle between the back of your right hand and your right forearm.

This will put you in the " trayed" wrist position. This is one of the most important angles.

Now forget all about the clubhead. Swing your hands as fast as you can.

Ladies and Gentlemen.. this is a drill.

Try it.

Remember, Angles equal leverage, leverage equal power.

No angles, no leverage, no power.

This is a magic move. Every good player has great angles and they keep them for as long as they can.
