Welcome to your new golf swing
Welcome my instructional series! You are about to learn the golf swing in more detail than you have ever before, and by the end of this series, I guarantee you will be striking the golf ball more consistently.
The P System
Talking about the golf swing can get confusing real fast without a way to identify the various positions within the swing. The P System is a way for instructors to communicate with students through a 10-position classification.
The Flying Wedges
The “flying wedges” was a term coined by Homer Kelley in The Golfing Machine, and it has HUGE implications for our golf swing. Read this once now and come back to it after you have finished the remainder of the instructional series.
Trackman Golf for Dummies
Many golfers think of Trackman as an expensive piece of equipment that they have no business learning. While you may not be able to purchase your own, understanding how Trackman measures a golf swing is integral to understanding and diagnosing your own swing.
What is the “D-Plane”?
Consider this third part of Golf Swing Basics as an optional deep-dive into the laws of ball-flight. In this part of the series, I will show you every single factor that can affect how your ball flies in the air. This one gets technical, but if you’re serious about improving your game, it would be a shame to skip.
Why Swinging “On-Plane” Matters in Golf
How many times have you been told to swing “on-plane” or get the club “in the slot”? I can tell you to swing “on-plane” all day, but it is useless advice until you understand what an inclined plane is and why it matters in golf.
The 2-Lever Model
The golf swing is a complex motion with many interconnected pieces. To understand it, we are going to need to re-learn some basic physics. Yep, that stuff you learned back in high-school. I promise I’ll make it as painless as possible, but trust me, this is necessary for your game.
