struck it absolutely beautifully how can yourepeat that on a consistent basis how were are actually doin in this week's training I'm going to show you it withyou exactly what's happening when you when you create those lovely sounds andlovely strikes and help you do it on a more consistent

basis withthree simple drills that will help you learn the feel of it alright before I dothat if you're new to Channel and this is one of your first videos of mine comeand join the community press that subscribe buttonand the bell so I can notify you every time I

get or release a new video justlike this one so what's happening when you strike those lovely lovely shotswell at that moment in time when that ball fizzes often there's no vibrationup the shaft you're getting a strike where you striking the ball firstthere's a lean of the shaft here

your body's probably opening a little bit butthere's this lovely compression so that the loft of the club has been delofted and you look youwill look something similar to this those times when you're not striking itso good you are thinning it and fatting it you'll look a little bit

like this soyou're kind of flicking it becomes a little bit of a flicky Motion very weakawful for striking catches the fat catches that you name it so the questionis how do you go about achieving this motion on a regular basis well there'sfree simple steps and they're really easy

step number one which I refer to ina previous video of mine which I'm going to put up in this top right hand cornerthe first thing you're going to do is make sure that you truly have a swingand what I mean by that is is I don't want your

brain to be full of loads ofinformation thinking of this think of that that creates this woodenest inyour golf swing you cannot have that that is not how we naturally move so the veryfirst thing I want you to do is first of all sense the swinging action so you'vegot

to have this as your core motion so this these arms here are being swung bythe movement of the feet it's a foot two hand Motion I'm swinging the armsusing the movement of the feet what I'm not doing is isolating these arms I'mswinging them like this the arms are

moved by my feet moved I'musing pressure swinging them back and I'm swinging through so try this now tryand get sensation of those arms being swung backwards and forwards as stepnumber one once you've got that sensation pick up a golf club and dosomething similar start to swing the head

backwards and forward notice thisI'm not just doing this motion it with an isolated arm motion what I'm actuallydoing is that arm is being swung back by a movement of the ground a foot to handjust like I would do if I was throwing a ball I'm going to go

into too much moredetail on this I've covered it loads in this in last week's training which youcan access right here once you've got that sensation you now need to learn howto feel how to then while you're doing that get this sensation of compressionthrough the impact area and I've

got a little game you can play about twodrills but the first one is tell you what let me give you the drill first so let'sgive you a job so grabbers through guru Doug everyone's go screwdriver I've seenthis done with all kinds of things like alignment sticks on what

I view but graba screwdriver stick it in the top part of your grip here so it sticks out niceand simple and all we're gonna do here is this most most players when they'renot striking the ball very well they swing back here and what they're doingis they're simply flicking

if you start flicking here this screwdriver is goingto start to hit you in your sight so be a little bit careful and but what'shappening is it's gonna flick here what you want to do is get sensation that ifyou swing naturally you're gonna miss through here if screwdrivers not

goingto hit your side I'm literally swinging backwards andforwards and the screwdriver is missing if I flick through it's clearly going topoint at me at my bellybutton quite quickly I might even hit me just watchout people sometimes get it wrong by okay they start to do stuff like thisand

again that's an isolated motion they are missing their body with ascrewdriver but that's not what they actually wanted that's why we needthrough stage one first you need to let the club swing throughfreely first okay once we've done that then you can start to play a few shotsand all

we're gonna do now I'm gonna hit a shot I'm getting that sensation lookhow my body's naturally clearing and watch this if it doesn't clear and I getflicky it's going to hit me in the side so where we go nice and smooth and awaywe go misses the side beautifully

get lovely amount of compression and youknow what for some of you you might find this feeling a little bit weird to startwith it might feel like it's a little bit stiff I'm happy with a little bit ofstiffness initially just here but I don't want to stay like that

okay it'svery important that you have this flowing Martian Golf isn't a mechanicalthing you've got it I've always rhythm and flow to it this is just fine-tuningit and helping you get that compression or the feeling of compression we doanother one like this and away we go I'm really getting

a sensation the ballstraveling off naturally a bit lower because I'm avoiding that simpleexercise most people can try that learn the feel of compression then this one Ilove this one's even simpler than that this one gives you a great feel so watchthis I get myself set I'm gonna open

my stance really wide open but keep theball position kind of central now if I allow my hands to release and I getflicky here where's the ball gonna go milesgot miles left isn't it so I'm going to try to keep the ball nice and straighton this motion so the

only way I can actually do that look is by getting thissensation here if I allow myself to kind of flick it's going to go left so thisis a fun game and because your body's a wonderful problem solver it will solvethe problem by naturally holding that spirit face and

much-much squarerthrough impact and therefore holding the angle not because you're trying to holdthe angle because just it's natural to do that so we get ourselves set let's doa couple of shots from here so I'm going to literally try and get the sensationof keeping the ball on line still

while keeping it straight that's a beautifulstrike even surprised myself with that one so let's have another look at that so you can see here I'm aiming miles tomy left ball still central but obviously if I kind of released this here and getthe flicky motion that ball is gonna

go left foot I felt let's just show that ifI flick balls gonna go miles to the left straightaway and that's going to giveyou that horrible sense of flick no strike whatsoever so again in order foryou to make a change in your golf swing you have to learn to

feel what compressionfeels like you need to feel what it's an go feels like but without forcing theangle make this mechanical make it stiff hot trying to hold on to this there'sjust no swing if you just becomes an artificial manufactured move giveyourself your body a challenge it will naturally

try and solve the problem so Imillion miles to the left here my targets over there and all I'm going todo is is a look at how naturally I'm an honor for me to kind of keep that squareclubface kind of facing where I want the ball to go I

naturally have to hold thisthere without all the stiffness so let's play the game I'm going to try to set itoff a line look at that beautiful some another lookat that in action so we're still swinging freely we're still getting thatsensation of compression but it's happening much more naturally

by givingour body a nice little problem look at that that's a beaut so you can see therethere's three stages to learning this sensation of getting this motion comingthrough so we're basically the first thingyou've got to do you've got to make sure that you still have this flowing motionI

do not want this to be kind of artificial because we try to hold theangle get the sensation that the arms are being slung by the body if you don'tquite understand exactly what I'm talking about there it's such animportant factor check the video out are putting this top round

corner it willreally really really help get the flow you've got to allow this club to let gono control over this motion once you've got that sensation of letting go thenyou've got to then say like it I need to learn how to add the compression on thefeel of compression

to that we said look yes you can try it nice and simply withputting a screwdriver in I've seen people use alignment sticks of these intraining aids you can add twist but training it's cost money so look mostpeople got screwdriver stick it in there get the sensation of swinging

freely andas look as I literally avoid that hitting my body my body turnsbeautifully out of the way if I flick here it's going to start hitting my bodyit's a simple motion the key those who don't use it with an isolated motionthat's to mechanical and there's no power is

to be practice swinging throughjust naturally avoiding it my favorite however is this motion amiles to the left for a right hander ball central and give you a body aproblem it's gonna have to solve the problem by doing this get that sensationand it'll be give you a great way

of starting to get some form of compressionwith this shot it's just fighting it that's lovely and then from there youcan gradually move the stance back around to square get the sensation againat the okay I'm maybe not doing it as much now but I'm going to see if I

cantransfer that sensation back and through I know where you go and I will just playaround with this the key with golf is remember it's a sport it needs to bedynamic you need to have this you develop feels so many people understandwhat to do but they don't really know

how to do because they don't understandhow to train their body to body needs to requires much more feel orientatedexercises these games like this will provide the body with the rightinformation so it can learn learn the feels learn the strike and then I whereyou go I really hope this

helps if you know if somebody else is struggling withtheir striking particularly with the irons share this video it will reallyreally help and of course let you enjoy the video give it a thumbs up maybe comeand join the community just by subscribing to the channel and pressingthat bell but
