The early wrist set takeaway has been mostly discouraged by pro golf instructors in recent years in favor of the wider, one-piece left shoulder move with relatively quiet wrists. Have no idea why.
I’ve tried both and have found early wrist set works for me, provided I start back toward the front foot as I reach the top of the backswing and pivot hard with hips and torso through impact.
The key feelings are: lightness of the club in the backswing, extra pressure on the wrist set at the top of the backswing while also shifting weight into the front foot, and driving straight down with my trail (right) arm with the intent to let my hands beat the club head to the ball.
OMG JH!! I don’t know what you’re going to call this swing. Just got back from the driving range. Honest-to- God I picked up two club lengths with this swing(only took my 6 iron) Like one of the other comments-I too use a 10-finger split grip with this swing. Really allows you get massive leverage with the backswing and downswing. more, more please. I have always been able to take away something from your tips-but this one “takes the cake!”
That’s not Moe, Moe used his big toes Hogan on the other hand kept his pressure on his heels the entire motion. Again it’s anatomical trains and how the heels signal the pelvis and spine . Also the stirrups of the tissues all come up the back and side of the heel and leg.
The choking up is part coupling point and part posture but it’s mostly posture . Getting better but there’s still way easier but your heading in the right direction . Just over focusing on the back of feet.
The weight in your feet is now on all three points of the foot tripod and the human foot properly set is heels the low point and the front of foot sits higher and the foot also sits on a incline out… stop saying Moe your doing Hogan Moe was Big toes and totally wrong way to do it. Why he talked in riddles.
Hey Lee, I was personally privy to some of those ‘Riddles’ of Moe’s…along with specific physical explanations and demonstrations of what he did in his swing according to him… one thing that cemented my conviction of him being a ‘heel’ weighting player was his showing me how he sat into his heels as he started his downswing…he demonstrated hanging his butt out behind him by lowering the angle of his thighs from the top of the backswing which were around 75 degs to 45 degs when the club was at hip height coming down and his buttocks moving from just in line with the back of his heels at the top of the swing to being way behind the heels at impact.
He said that he felt he had a 20lb bowling ball hanging off a chain connected to his belt right in the middle of his buttocks as he hit the ball…. I don’t know how he toe weighted with that anatomical disposition in place ..as well how did he keep his left knee inside his right at impact with toe weighting application… as well his ‘vertical’ drop was just that ..’Vertical’ ….the drop was actually ‘rearward’ which drove his stabilising weight force into his heels …as well you cant roll your trail ankle with toe weighting.
I know what Moe did because he stood in front of me in his impact position and said ..’where do you see my weight force being applied… look its moving ‘away’ from the ball at impact…not to it’….he was simply applying a ‘counterbalancing’ rearward mass force to the outward moving mass force of the arms/hands going towards the ball… he ‘told’ me what he was doing … and he physically ‘showed’ me how he did it. All ‘Riddles’ can be deciphered… if you have a ‘ciphering code’… and I did. cheers JH
The KING™ F7 ONE Length™ irons make their debut as COBRA’s first ever single-length iron set. Inspired by our relationship with PGA TOUR Professional, Bryson DeChambeau, The KING F7 ONE utilizes the same TECFLO constructions as the KING F7 along with PWRSHELL™ Faces and Precision Milled Grooves. However, the KING F7 ONE features constant 7-iron lengths throughout the set and each head has been re-engineered for proper geometry to deliver optimized trajectory and distance gapping from long irons to wedges.
The end result? A simpler, easier way to play.
