Three Golf Swing Secrets

"Improve your game fast with these three golf swing tips."

What you are about to read... will change your golfing life forever! What are these three golf swing secrets? If you knew how would they effect your game?. These three "secrets" are what the worlds best players do. Every player MUST know these golf swing tips if they want to have a powerful, repeating golf stroke.

The problem with the majority of golfers is that they don't know what to do. Oh their friends, well wishers at best, tell them that they are "bending their left arm", "raising up through the shot", "coming over the top" and host of other swing faults.

But these are the same people that shoot the same scores you do! What could they possibly tell you that would improve your game?

The information you are about to receive is not theory or conjecture but science. Ooooh, you say, this sounds complicated. Well it isn't, it is simply the laws of force and motion that govern our entire lives and day to day living. Once you understand these simple laws your golf game will forever change...for the better!
 

Swing Secret #1: A Flat Left Wrist

Because the golf stroke involves a golf club, a left arm, and a wrist in between, it is called a "lever system". The left wrist acts as a "hinge pin" much like the old time "flail" used to beat wheat. This "hinge pin" can rotate, cock or uncock but NEVER Bends!

Golfers routinely bend the left wrist causing the club head to reach the ball before the hands do. This causes a "quitting" motion, adds loft to the clubface, and points the face to the left of target.

This makes the club head swing upward disrupting the downward motion that ALL good golf shots MUST have. Good players DELOFT the clubface at Impact. Poor players ADD loft to the clubface costing them distance, direction, and trajectory.

A 5 iron, for example, has approximately 8 degrees for "forward lean" when soled properly. At Impact with good players the "lean" is approximately 15 degrees. This turns the 5 iron into a 4 iron.

Poor players reach Impact with a "backward" leaning clubs haft thereby ADDING loft and turning the 5 iron into a 6-7 iron!
 

Swing Secret #2: A Straight Plane Line

You only have two choices when it comes to the swing plane, you are either on or you're off. There is no middle ground!

What exactly is the swing plane?

The plane is the angle of the club shaft as it sets at address - period! It is NOT Hogan's plane of glass as many would have you to believe. There are only three planes available;

1. Horizontal - a wall 2. Vertical - the floor 3. Inclined somewhere in between

As golfers you and I use the Inclined Plane to swing the club back up and end, down out and forward, up back and in making the Golf Stroke three dimensional.

The club shaft, actually the sweet spot of the club, may travel to any other plane angle during the swing as long as it DOES NOT cross the base of the plane.

Here is a simple way you can know if you are on plane or not. Whichever end of the club is nearest to the ground MUST also point at the base of the plane from horizon to horizon.

If neither end is nearer then the club shaft MUST be horizontal to the ground and parallel to the base of plane.
 

Swing Secret #3: A Lagging Clubhead

Lag by definition means "trailing". When the club head passes the hands coming into Impact there is no "lag". Without "lag" the golf ball cannot be compressed, we cannot hit downward, and we have a tremendous power loss.

Club head lag promotes a steady and even acceleration giving us a dependable way to control distance.

Look at any picture of your favorite player at Impact. The left arm and club shaft are in ONE LINE! Never two lines. This means that the player is utilizing "lag".

When a ball is struck with "lag" it explodes off the clubface! Without this "lag" the sound turns into one of mush, a soft Impact instead of a driving Impact.
 

Golf Swing Tips Summary

If you follow this outline, learn these three "Secrets" you will be hitting the ball with more compression than you ever thought possible.

For example, a Driver striking a golf ball with a 2 degree "backward" leaning club shaft at 100 mph with 9.5 degrees of loft produces a launch angle of 6.4 degrees and a carry distance of 230 yards.

By changing Impact to a 2 degree forward leaning club shaft the player produces a launch angle of 10.4 degrees and a carry of 251 yards. A 21 YARD INCREASE WITHOUT buying a new Driver and simply having club head lag!

YOU can improve your game dramatically by following the steps outlined above. Become the best player YOU can be and start winning those 4-way presses!

If YOU really want to elevate your game, hit it farther, straighter, and nearer the hole then practice what I've shared with you.
