THE GOLF SWING DYNAMICS

 

The golf ball doesn't care who is hitting it- all it does is react to dynamics of being hit The better the sequence of the motion- therefore the dynamics- the truer, the farther, the more control your golf ball will display. It is what separates the poor player from the good player.

 

In the following videos I explain the Dynamics Of The Golf Swing in much more depth than you have probably witnessed before. It may be different than what you believe or have heard however what I discuss is the lifeblood of the great consistent striker.

 

For those that don't know the way I go about teaching it will open your thoughts to a different hemisphere of how the hit of the golf ball unfolds. For those who who have done my drill series or have seen me in person for lessons the videos will add more re-inforcement to your understanding of why and how the way I teach helps propel the student to a better level of striking that will only continue to improve as the work is done and ingrained to greater levels.

 

 

My YouTube channel GOLFAUS YOUTUBE has now approached 3200 subscribers and has over 3.3 million views. If you have not subscribed to my channel there I would consider doing this also as there are many videos in the archives there that you should also utilize in relation to the videos below in this blog.

 

You will gain a much greater understanding of the consistent message of these YouTube explanation videos when you watch the new unseen videos below. All these components will help you forge ahead to not only a better golf game but a better understanding of the golf swing.

 

My goal is to allow golfers of all abilities to be privy to the true fundamentals- for without these true fundamentals in place golf can be more a game of chance than a game of skill.

 

As always for a full understanding it is always applicable to seek direct help via my online lessons or personal lessons- as the personal contact between a student and the coach tends to answer many more of the questions you may have in your search. I take out the guesswork and the worry for you!!!!

WHY DO I TEACH THE GOLF SWING THE WAY I DO?

 

Having played golf for over 35 years now I have seen many ideas and concepts about the golf swing. As a tournament golfer for 30 years I have played a lot of golf events under the pressure cooker experience. This has allowed me to hit a LOT of golf balls in practice and in tournaments- using these as a guideline and a feedback tool to what works best and what is more repeatable- especially when the stakes are higher.

 

For me those stakes meant the difference between a $200,000 paycheck or the distinction of slamming the boot of my car and packing off to the next event with no prizemoney earned and a large expense on my bank account by missing the cut.

 

For you- the difference may be the opportunity to break 100- break 90- break 80 or even break par. Or it may mean getting to a single figure handicap or to a scratch handicap or just the opportunity to hit better shots more often.

 

We all have our goals and aspirations that will tap our minds when we are out there battling the golf course and our opponents- so we need a more repeatable functional dynamic golf swing that will not buckle under the pressures we impose on ourselves- so we can make better decisions with our course management and club selection and have less fear of the swing itself.

 

When I started teaching golf in 2008 I was very much just regurgitating information I had received from coaches over the years. I was not getting much improvement from my students and this really ate at me as I desperately wanted to help them improve.

 

One day I came home and realized I was teaching generic instruction that was not based on what I had once done in my own swing and was not really what the better golfers did in their own swings- it was a bastardized version of 'specific fundamentals' or 'swing plane thoughts' that I knew didn't work as well for me and that I really didn't see occurring when watching these great players in motion.

 

That day changed my life- I took it upon myself to think outside the box and 1) work out exactly what I did in my swing before instuction then 2) see how this corresponded with the great ball strikers.

 

After a lot of watching my old videos and pictures and viewing hours of footage of not just the great swings but also the swings of great golfers that were considered 'funky' and not technically sound. The differences were obvious.

 

The next battle was HOW? was I now going to change my instruction process to suit and how would I be able to work out a teaching style that allowed the student to improve. 

 

It took me almost a full year to design my program for instruction. I tested it with students. I refined some thoughts and in the process also learned from these students also. The results went off the charts. My first test golfer "guinea pig" if you wish dropped his best score from 120 to 74 within 18 months and well the rest is history.....

 

In the following videos I will show you the "TRUE" fundementals of the golf swing and how when these dynamics are applied- golf becomes very much easier.

 

The ball doesn't care who is hitting it- it just does what it is told. And with a sounder technique we open up an entire new world of possibilities in the mental department of our game that will again continue to help us build and grow and become better than we thought we could be.

 

Here is Part 1 of How I Teach and WHY I Teach The Way I Do:

 

Here is Part 2 of How I Teach and WHY I Teach The Way I Do:

 

I would consider watching these videos many times over (in combination with running through many of my YouTube videos- which are also linked under the video section of my website)..... and the entire picture of what to aim for and strengthen in your swing will become glaringly obvious. 

 

The students who have stuck to my thoughts and worked hard on the drills I have shown them - online and in person- have been amazing in their commitment and improvement.

 

It will NOT happen overnight but it will happen. All we need is a proper plan in place to follow and not waver from that plan attempting to find a quick fix. ALL good golfers worked hard and the best ALL very much displayed the references I make in the videos above. 

 

I was recently forwarded an article from a scientific golf study and the message in it was amazingly clear and farther convinced me why I have been able to transform so many people's games to a higher level once I learned a better way to instruct them- a way that they learn and feel and produce a swing that really ends up giving the golf ball no other option but to do what it is told!!! 

 

This article is outstanding to help us understand the challenges of learning as we get older. It is the exact approach I undertook when I altered my entire concept of how could I help make golfers improve and not only hit more of those "wow" shots but also enable them to make their "yuck" shots more playable...and that's the essence of good golf.

THE SCIENCE OF THE GOLF SWING- David Williams, D.Sc., F.I.Mech.E., F.R.Ae.S., C.Eng
Published 1969 - Republished in the year 2000

 

From Chapter One- Introductory Remarks:


"One of the greatest mistakes in my view that golf teachers make is to try and teach the swing as a
whole to an adult learner. It works for a young pupil if he has any aptitude, because the young have a very strong imitative faculty. They also have very good physical memory, so that when at last after a period of trial and error their action suddenly falls into the right groove they seldom forget it again, so that in the end the right action becomes instinctive. Not so, however, with the late learner who, even after stumbling on the right approach, is likely to lose it again and never to recover it.

 

"For him indeed the process of trial and error can be long and frustrating as well as fruitless. The quickest and most painless method for him is to understand and become familiar with certain key movements in the swing. Understanding such movements does not of course enable him to incorporate them into his swing all at once. Their integration into the swing as a whole necessarily takes time. The great advantage of this kind of approach, however, over the trial and error method is that the learner knows what he is trying to do and is not for ever blundering from one error to another without any clear objective in sight.


"The situation as between learning the fundamentals of the game at an early age and learning them later in life is paralleled by the experience of learning a foreign language. Young people pick up a foreign language without any trouble. They soak it up, accent, grammar and all from hearing it spoken by those around them. By contrast the adult's progress is painfully slow - the hurdles of grammar, vocabulary, accent and idioms have all to be laboriously learnt before any sort of competence can be reached.

 

"The adult golfing addict is in a parallel position. However often he watches tournament golfers, little of what he sees soaks in. The very ease with which the professionals perform - the art with which they conceal their art - makes it that much more difficult for him to penetrate their disguise and get at some of the fundamentals that lie behind it.

 

"That is why the golf swing needs to be dissected into its component parts and why the significance of each part must be separately understood if the adult learner is to make real progress"

Happy Golfing To You All
