PGA Golf Professionals Piers ward and Andrew Proudman talk about backswing plane and how it can affect your slice.
I don’t have the contraption you show on screen but just thinking about the
takeaway and keeping it low has helped my swing entirely, combined with the
other shoulder turn and follow through (the only time in your life you want
to follow through) vids, my swing looks and more importantly feels more
connected. Thanks lads, you keep posting and i’ll keep watching.
I’ve watched every single drill video over the course of 2 weeks and I am
now applying it at the range and wow been 4 times now and my accuracy and
range have improved from 50% to 90% I think I’m ready for the course so
thanks a bunch guys saved me a lot of time and money going to watch all the
other videos now
I really needed to see this video! I have been struggling as of late and
had some swing thoughts about what I used to do when I had a flatter swing
and was hitting a ball straight or with a draw. This video confirms my
thoughts and feelings about my swing. Thanks guys!
Hi guys. Good video, Do you recommend the same amount of early wrist set
with the driver as you do with the irons ?
The downswing should definitely be narrower than the backswing Gordon yes
but it doesn’t have to be a different path. Some players will do this and
that is fine but I wouldn’t tryto have two different paths. Ideally we
would like to see it “on plane on the way back and the way down. the most
important of the two being the downswing.
We like to see the same as the iron yes. The motion is the same. Think the
same swing with iron and driver.
I wonder how many people have ingrained a laid off back swing using this
Can I use this swing path for my irons? Love your videos!
Hi guys. Great series of videos. Couple of questions. One, would you
recommend rolling of the right ankle on the downswing? And two, I have a
couple of recurring problems in my game. One is my drives tend to leak a
bit to the right and two, I sometimes shank with my pitches. Are the
lads could you do a video on “across the line” please i need help with this
thank you Darren
Play with others who are your same level. This can help your confidence. As
a beginning golfer choose to play easy courses with other golfers who are
just starting to play. Playing difficult holes, or with golfers who are
experts, will only end up making the game less fun.
another cracking video guys. I’ve been guilty of the straight back takeaway
for a lonmg time myself, this really helps. cheers
I’ve tried doing this and now I have a reverse pivot at the beginning then
I back up on the down swing causing the occasional topping of the ball with
the driver. Can you help with these issues? Some drills with video?
great tip…I will try this out. thanks for the video lessons.
A slight roll of the right ankle in the downswing is good yes. The weight
will shift to the inside of the foot then you can rotate on to the toe.
This will help with a good weight shift! The problems will be related and
more than likely from the sounds of it. Your downswing is probably slightly
over the swing plane in the downswing. I would use some feedback next to
the golf ball to avoid hitting the heel and force you to swing more from
the inside. Hope that helps.
Where can I purchase this kind of device? Great video by the way!
We are filming Sunday Darren so will do one then.
You are not the only one! Its a common error and hope this helps. Thanks
Exactly the same path for the irons yes. the only difference is the plane
is more upright due to the club. No change in the swing though!
should the downswing be on a different (narrower) path than the backswing?
more of a loop slighly “out” then more inside?
The product is called NMS and it is made by a golf professional called Ian
Really enjoying these videos. Keep them coming.
Again lad’s thanks, a great visual way of describing the swing plane, very
Love the videos guys, they’ve helped me a lot, but please invest in a
second microphone for Piers as he’s hard to hear. Otherwise I turn it up to
100% to hear Piers, then Andy’s voice blows my ears off 🙂
Would you use the same swing on irons too? I am one of those flat swingers
and the lesson you demonstrated is the way I usually swing,but I have a
little problem on my iron play.Thanks for the lesson.
lads i like watching ur videos. i do have two questions: (i) how does a
faulty backswing affect the downswing. e.g. if i take the club on the
outside like lee trevino what will this mean for my ball flight on the down
swing. (ii) how does one develop a good back swing? (because you don’t
really know what you are doing as you are doing the back swing?)
A good way is to place something next to the right leg and as you swing to
the top, maintain contact. This will help stabilize your lower body. Maybe
use a chair or alignment stick. Hope this helps.
