  • GRIP IN YOUR FINGERS

    It is imperative to grip the club primarily in your fingers and not in the palm of your hand. Mastering your grip is paramount to having the most leverage and strength in your hands.

  • RIGHT HAND ONLY PRACTICE USING YOUR ARMS

    Practicing with your right hand only and swinging independently of your shoulder teaches you to swing the arm and take the tension out of the shoulder socket.

  • RIGHT HAND & CLUBFACE WORKING WITH YOUR HIPS

    The right hand and clubface work in harmony with your left hip to get the club on the ball.

  • FULL SWING GETTING UP TO COME DOWN

    It is vital in the backswing to get the club and your arms up, so they can come down and drop into the ball. Extending your lats is a great speed producer.
