Hey guys, welcome back. Great to have you here today. In this video we’re going to talk about how to smooth out that swing.
If you feel like you’re constantly hitting from the top, casting the club, losing a lot of swing speed. You’re putting out a ton of effort, but you’re not getting the distance that you want, this is really going to help you out with this.
What we’re going to do is we’re going to pick out a point about four feet in front of your golf ball, and this is what we call the Straight-Line Release in the Top Speed Golf System.
If I’m going down my target line, I’m just going to kind of line up and put a tee in the ground right down toward the middle of the fairway, about four feet in front.
Now from here, I’m going to visualize swinging to that point. I’m going to visualize just swinging my club right over top of that tee and that way I’m going to release in front of the golf ball.
What happens is if I’m casting from the top, I’m going to be pushing hard with my right hand. If you feel the muscles on the inside of your right forearm, right here, as those flex that starts to cast your club.
I don’t want to have this hitting motion back here, I want to focus on the tee in front. I’m also going to do what we call the stable, fluid spine. I’m going to get a little bit of tilt away from my target.
Now as I’m coming down I have this tilt, again I’m not casting from this point. I’m saving up my energy. As I angle back away from the target, now I can release to that point out in front or what we call the straight-line release and let that swing flow through the ball.
So I’m really just swinging to this point out here, I’m letting the ball get completely in the way. Not trying to hit at the ball, I’m swinging through the ball and letting contact just happen.
Now the last piece here, for those of you that are Hogan fans, obviously he has a beautiful swing. I love one of the things that he does in his swing very well, which is that really long arms as he’s coming on through.
So as I’m tilted back away from the target, as I’m releasing this point in the front, you’ll notice how my arms get nice and straight and long as I’m in this straight-line release, or that 45° in front.
I’m going to go ahead and keep on rotating my body and let those arms stay as long and as wide, if I had a ceiling above my head, if it was a 10-foot ceiling, I would still be smashing my club into that 10-foot ceiling as I’m coming up and through.
If you can do that, that’s going to make your swing more free flowing. It will definitely get rid of the hit back here. When we swing and hit back here our arms tend to fold up very early.
So three pieces to this, number one, I’m going to pick the straight-line release point. I’m going to swing through that out in front.
Number two, I’m going to relax my forearm back here. I don’t want to hit at that ball. I’m going to get tilted back, and then I’m going to have those long arms as I’m coming on through.
If you get those pieces, you’re going to have a long, free flowing swing with tons of distance.
All right guys, best of luck.
