ASK MIKE: COMBINING SKILLS
  • UPRIGHT OF FLAT SWING

    If you want maximum downward force in your swing, you want your Lats to extend. Throwing a medicine ball hard down into the ground works the hip flexors and Lats. Make a backswing so your arms go up. Your Lats can extend and then come down and contract to create more speed.

  • CREATING AN INSTINCT

    Now that you know how to push away, make it stand out in your swing.

  • COMBINING FOLLOW THROUGH AND TAKE AWAY

    This drill will look funny, but will deliver powerful results. Try it.

  • FOLLOWING THROUGH WITH TAKE AWAY

    Now that you are pushing away in your back swing, do it with your follow through.

  • KEEPING YOUR LEFT HIP BACK

    Keeping your left hip back will keep your plane from getting too shallow. Here's how to do it.

  • LOOK AT PUSHING AWAY

    Pushing Away is a commonly misunderstood aspect in the swing.

  • PLANT YOUR HEELS SAFELY

    This Ask Mike is in response to a question from Marc (Wales, UK). Knowing where and how to transfer force into the ground will keep you safe as your ball flight increases.

    RESPONSE TO COMMENTS on AM | 2021.03 | 01. RE: How Should My Hips Be Working - 20210122 // Pumping your legs on a swingset teaches you about the timing of acceleration in your swing. When you come down into the ball, make sure your acceleration looks like this.

  • ROTATION FROM YOUR SHOULDER DIRECTS YOUR WRIST

    RESPONSE TO COMMENTS on SP | FOOT ACTION | 01. Foot Action - Step 1 // It is a misnomer to say that the club rotates because the wrist does. What really happens is that the shoulder rotation drives the forearm.
