  1. This makes sense, but I think only because I’ve been using a kvest. I hit
    down a lot on the ball (6 or 7 degrees) and the kvest numbers were almost
    all converted to side bend

  2. Hi Mark, I enjoyed the video. I really struggle to hit down. My average
    aoa with 7I is about -1..I am a pretty good player and hit it really
    straight especially with my driver. But, I hit my 7I about 150 yds. I
    prefer to hit it lft. to rt. Is it that important to hit down -4 ish and
    if so what should I try to do..? What you recommend in this video?
    Thanks, appreciate your videos well done..tony

  3. I think he just wanted to demonstrate where the stretch in his back is so
    he turned the other way for the camera to pick up. A bit confusing… or
    else it would be what some people call “reverse K”

  4. i think the bigger problem for most people is that they fall with their
    left shoulder and then they have a too high AOA 🙂 But great vid mark it´s
    even for me as German really easy to get it!

  5. Great explanation Mark! It’s good to see some science around the “feel” of
    the golf swing. I love the numbers. Trackman is awesome and I drool over
    what it tells me. I really enjoyed the lesson about the subtle differences
    of AOA vs body bend. Keep it up!

  6. For driver, you could aim further right with ball further forward, hips
    further forward to achieve a similar result of hitting up…

  7. AOA in good players is mostly the result of manipulating the release point
    of the club. Release it late and the AOA will be more downward, Release it
    early and the AOA will be less downward or even upwards. Tell the brain
    which release you want to execute and it is amazing how your body will
    respond ie: tell the brain you want an early release and it will figure out
    that in order to hit UP on the ball your body better stay BEHIND the ball
    (that doesn’t mean reverse pivot BTW). Try it in slo-mo

  8. I love the math in the golf swing, I’d really like to see more of it.
    Because the math applies to not just one person, or even a few, these
    numbers are a true read of a golf swing and it’s even better that they be
    done with someone that has a more “textbook” swing. I think a lot of us
    could benefit from more like this!

  9. Mark, I’ve watched many of your videos and I think you explain things
    better than most people do. I haven’t been playing golf for a year yet and
    I feel like I have a pretty good understanding of what I’m doing wrong and
    what I can do to fix my swing. I have a long way to go but your
    explanations have helped a lot thanks and keep up the good work.

  10. Hi Mark, you mentioned that getting “behind” the ball helps you strike
    better drivers while staying “on top” of the ball helps you strike better
    irons. Can you use the “on top” of the ball movement with the driver and
    move the ball forward in your stance to get that positive angle of attack,
    essentially using the same type of spine angle movement for both driver and

  11. Great video, Mark! Another great way to look at this is your transverse
    plane (hips), or plane that separates upper and lower body, stays as level
    as possible. People say to turn around your spine, which like you said is a
    great “thought”, but really you want to turn your hips level. Which is what
    happens when you take the hip bend out in the back swing and forward swing.

  12. Great video, it looks like the better shot is when your left shoulder comes
    under your chin whereas the other shot (hit on the up) is where the chin
    and shoulder are separated and the chin further back and away from the

  13. Mark, Ive been told I hit too much down on the ball (-8 deg with all
    clubs), which causes push slices because the club face hasn’t closed enough
    due to strongly descending AOA. Can you please discuss why this happens and
    how to fix it? Great to see more of a focus on AOA. Technology has shown
    this has a major influence on ball flight, but it’s not given the same
    amount of focus as plane and club face. Cheers.
