Thanks for the additional details!
Has the rain gone?
+cooljakes. The rain is on and off at the moment, but there are usually
breaks that I can get on the practice tee for a while in between.the rain
Great instruction, JH. THanks
+cooljakes No Worries, glad to help.
Got rid of the shanks. Pulling slightly to the left. I guess practice will
make it perfect. Thanks again.
+cooljakes Make sure you keep rotating with the upper body through impact
or you will just turn a shank into a ‘flat pull’ if you just use the hands
to go left as conscious thought.
+1atomicgolf Thanks, working on it , indoors.
i like your videos, I’m using the low hands approach and I’ll give this
chipping method a try. thanks
+Don Ireland Hi Don,
Chipping /pitching is a personal thing I have found relative to developing
a a confident ‘feel’ aspect, high hands/low hands/ soft hands/firm
hands….its all about what you feel ‘comfortable’ with, hope it works for
In my opinion many chipping shanks occur when the right hip/shoulder turn
prematurely into the shot looping the club outside the target line. Keeping
the weight towards the left foot and giving the hands a little more room
can help alleviate that problem.
+SearchBucket2 Not quite sure what you mean with your description here, for
example my take on your assessment is this, if I load my weight more on my
lead foot and push my hands further away from my body without my trail arm
being inside my lead arm my trail shoulder is going to be open to my lead
shoulder and because my weight is loaded on my lead foot I will be
promoting an out to in swing path… that body structural setup is designed
to encourage a lead side delivery of the club to the ball with the lead
shoulder releasing early and low .
Anytime you are changing your hand path normal delivery spacing from the
body through impact you are introducing a ‘hands ‘ direction conflict
relative to the normal application of swing inertia positioning of the
hands/arms through impact, I never want to think about making a conscious
change to anything coming into the impact zone in the Golf swing, ‘More
room’ for the hands in chipping/pitching can only be a resultant of ‘more
room’ for the hands/arms by way of a general overall swing structure that
has in it ‘more room’ for the hands/arms through impact.
Just pointing out that an in-to-out swing-path is not the only cause of a
If the right side (knee/hip/shoulder) gets too much into the stroke it will
push the return path outside the line. Keeping the weight towards the left
side helps prevent this by quieting the right side.
+SearchBucket2 I agree that shanking can come from ‘any’ direction,
invariably the better player shanks from in to out because they have a
better swing path direction, I stood beside one of Australia’s best known
World Tour players and watched him hit the most perfect ‘shanks’ with a 5
iron for 10 minutes, absolutely ‘perfect’ in to out hosel rockets.
I know what you are getting at but I think any loading on the lead
foot/side invariably makes it harder to stop the trail shoulder/side from
wanting to rotate ‘more’ around the loaded lead side axis, if I want to hit
a quick ‘cut’ shot I setup exactly as you are saying because I want my
trail shoulder to get out and across the delivery line severely to create
the cut spin shot shape, I want my trail shoulder to get active early and
Everyone as I always say can get their bodies/swings to do what they want
it to do , I just think for the majority of players the process
understanding I have proposed is reasonably easily applied as solution to
most shanking problems.
Hey JH–I really enjoy your vids.
Your new pitching method is fascinating and reminds me that many great
things are chance discoveries. I’m looking forward to practicing it on the
range. Before I do, I’m wondering if this be adapted to chipping and sand
shots as well?
You can use the process for chipping and sand shots …but it just requires
a bit more application… as far as sand shots go …have a look at my
latest video that will be up tonight sometime called …’The Davinci Code
Swing In The Bunker’… its a very easy way to play bunker shots.
