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.
