Throw the Golf Club Philosophy

Golf Life travels the US meeting and working with top golf teachers. We caught up with John Miller at The Reserve Club in Indian Wells, California to get his thoughts on the swing and golf instruction.

He discusses his general concepts on the hitting a golf ball, how are body and arms move to have success. He also introduces us to his concept of throwing the club up to a good position in you back swing.

  1. If one were to really throw the head of his golf club over his/her right shoulder; the weight of the club being thrown back over the shoulder would place the golfer in an unbalanced position at the top of his/her swing.

    Swing the handle and the club will travel in a path that is parallel to your hands. I promise everyone that this is true and so does the little pro Ed Merrins. Cheers

  2. I absolutely agree with this ‘thought philosophy ‘ . It really works well. I’ve always look at the back swing like your swinging a sack of potatoes over your shoulder. You’d have to be loose and use your core momentum to achieve it. Everything then suddenly gets natural.

  3. The term "swing" he interprets as a negative.. I get it but that's his perception. Throwing to the right shoulder may cause a sudden grip pressure increase at the move away to get that done.. I kinda like the thought but not sure. Shawn Clement uses another term that I like better but can't remember at the moment lol.. heave I think he uses.

  4. Makes sense… but now for the "throw" in the other direction please! Currently working on my sequencing and there is an answer along these lines – I just feel it! Cheers and thanks – Dave from Oz
