Do you need to hit more fairways and greens in regulation?
In this series of blog posts we partnered with the folks at Total Golf Trainer Arm to bring you videos and content that should help you improve your game. You now look at your TheGrint performance data constantly, but what can you do about it. Well here is a starting point. This content is sponsored, but very useful.
In this first blog post we will talk about hitting more fairways and greens. And it all starts with Clubface Control. The biggest factor to miss-hitting shots (topping, chunking, slices and hooks) is extreme open or closed clubface. PGA professionals have a habit before they hit the ball of going half way back or parallel to the ground, stopping and looking back to check the clubface before every shot.
The correct positioning of the lead and trail wrists can help solve a variety of swing faults, helping you achieve a flat lead wrist position resulting in forward shaft lean at impact, establish powerful lag in the downswing, and consistently repeat crisp contact. It doesn’t matter how fast you swing or how solid you hit the ball, without a square clubface the ball will never go in the direction you want.
Golf is a game of control and in order to control the golf ball you must first learn how to control the clubface. But do you train your wrists? There are many tools out there. In this series we will use the Total Golf Trainer Arm for teaching purposes. This tool can help golfers achieve the ideal wrist, elbow and arm positions throughout the golf swing. We’ve tried it, it works really well.
A flat lead wrist is something that should be practiced in all aspects of your game. In chipping a flat lead wrist controls the golf balls roll on the green, providing a better expectation in order to make more chip shots. In a pitch shot the length of swing directly affects the distance your golf ball will travel. The Total Golf Trainer Arm will adjust to control the length of you swing, while maintaining a square clubface, making it easy to practice distance control for any length pitch shot. The focus of clubface control in chipping and pitching improving impact (which is the one fundamental every great golf swing has in common) will guarantee improve your full swing and get you to hit more fairways and greens in regulation! The device is adjustable, and easily attaches to your lead or trail wrist for positive feedback that you can feel. The Total Golf Trainer Arm has lead or trail wrist settings that provide feedback for a square clubface throughout the swing every time!! If you are looking to hit more fairways and greens in regulation, remember always fix clubface first.
