GOODNESS GRACIOUS!!!!!! This video is awful

Let’s teach people to fix over the top by getting the club stuck, necessitating a flip and even better…humping the goat!!!!!

In other words, a microcosm of golf instruction today. Cure a problem the wrong way and create an even worse problem.

Curing a cast by holding the lag being my very favorite example of this.

(Watch how much he hip thrusts when he is demonstrating the drill and when he hits the ball)

They should rename this, “How to get the shanks drill.”

Yet another video someone sent me in order to provoke a rant. I hope you are all happy that I am so mad, I am going to go beat my wife and kids.

You fix a cast by finding your proper length backswing and learning the feel of proper rotation, not by holding the lag and isolating the hands from the pivot.

You fix over the top by evening out the backswing (not so inside with the arm swing) and learning proper weight shift…not by burying the club to the inside and behind you on purpose with the hands.

I need to market myself better…if not just for my own success, but for the well being of golfers so they don’t have to listen to drivel like this.

    “Cure a problem the wrong way and create an even worse problem.”

    Hmmm…like trying to get more “shoulder turn” by turning your shoulders more.

      Boy, that is the worst atrocity I have seen in quite a while. This jerk should be banned from teachng studends!!!!!!

      What a dumb thing and peaople are even watching this sh*t, club behind the hands in the down swing, hip trust, delaying the release, follow through DTL.(where the hiptrust is the only thing where one still can play good golf, but the rest, what a nightmare)

      Incredible, i am really wondering where this guy learned the golf swing, probably another selve thaught spraying shortish gurus who’s got fired as a janitor for beeing dumb on the job.

    Good one Monte. Band-aid instruction just insures that they have to come back for more lessons. 🙂 Good for the pro, bad for the hack.

    By the way I did your hand-set, rhythm and release drill (I call it the grass sling drill) for four or five days 200 swings a day and I had the most dramatic improvement in ball striking I have ever had. It’s a beautiful thing. No band-aids needed for an entire round. Thanks. Screw the range, I can do that in the living room. 🙂

      Glad to hear it. That really is a good drill. Especially for the coming months where people are going to be snowed inside and can’t practice.

        Monte,

        This drill helped me a bunch too. Is this going to lead into your next video. or should I think ‘Plane and release by Feel” along with this? Thanks!

    Hey Monte! Long time Browser, 1st time poster. I everyone. Thanks Monte for your common sense approach to golf instructions. You and Shawn Clement are the only 2 I take advise from. I’d say you’d aggree with at least 85% of the stuff Shawn promotes. He is all about natural body movements. I beleive he has studied human anatomy and knows how it works in the swing. He very much promotes gravity and centrifugal force. You 2 should work together, except he is in Canada LOL. I had a leeson once almost exactly like the above one. The fix lasted maybe 1 round, then my consistancy dropped like a stone in water, shanks, hooks. It felt like an awkward forced swing.

      Just my 2 cents but after one lesson you shouldn’t expect a permanent fix. Your old bad habits will almost certainly creep back in. That’s a great drill but it needs intense repetition over a long time period to effect permanent change. Habits die hard. Really hard.

        Woops. I’m referring to the handset rhythm and release drill. Sorry.

    Very true. I was reffering to the above forced inside out swing. With that, the more I practiced it, the worse I became. I believe Montes handset and release drill is very much like Shawns perpetual motion drill that can be done feet apart, together and on 1 leg. This drill is the best for feeling a natural swing. No forced lag, all natural.

      All good. The rhythm and release drill is the only drill ever that has had a real effect on my ball striking. Period. I’ve even gone down the bertholy path which proved one thing; the things I will put myself through trying to improve.

    Monte, don’t know if you’re still reading this but a question. After doing your rhythm and release drill intensively I am sore at the inside of my thighs in the groin area. Good indicator or bad?

    Never been sore there before but it goes to which muskels I’m using.

    Hey Monte, speaking of Shawn Clement, have you had a chance to check out his theories?….and if so what do you think? You guys have a lot in common.
