I like the focus on the initial part of the down swing. Lately, my friend and I have focused on making sure we have a full arc at the start of the downswing. My tendency is to cut it off. That always leads to cutting across the ball. Also, I’ve noticed I’m hitting the ball further back in my stance because it feels like the center of my arc is from the rear shoulder.
I think if the Davinci Code swing has a lot of differences compared to a standard golf swing the ball position being further back is definitely one of them.
It’s always on the outside edge of the right leg side to center of that leg starts at waste high or from transition . Starts exactly at right pinky toe to big toe and keeps going
Ok the full release is from pinky toe to pinky toe with a clear spot between the big toes starts and ends at the pinky toes and you will feel it pass all the toes the arcs in the toes you will feel it
No such thing as over the top or at least it’s not a bad thing it’s a pattern like any other
Fingers will fan or follow toes wrist release around ankles for wrist people .
The straight lines the chin the arcs the forehead and cheek line .
Sweeping the sole or end of the club like I told you your brain finds
I’ll map it out for you
When the golf world realizes that the club is coming back into itself from where it started not the ball never was or is about the ball it WILL REPLACE ITSELF FROM INSIDE OR DTL OR ACROSS AS ACROSS IS A CUT DTL STRAIGHT INSIDE IS DRAW. Start ball on toe hit it in center but replace the club head through itself and square is true loft and why when you manipulate the head it’s only a loft deviation on a putter is square . Fact
BAM!! It was like little John Daly at the PNC father son tourny this past weekend, watch him, before evey shot what did he look at? The clubhead! Anything inline with your eye plane, arms straight out in front off you, Cannot miss.
Your making what looks like a tight circle when in fact you creating max WIDTH OF CLUHEAD FROM YOUR HEAD AND TWO SHOULDERS AND YOU AT MAX RADIUS
YOU GET IT NOW PLEASE SAY YES ITS NOT A TIGHT CIRCLE ITS A FAST MAX WIDTH SRC IN A U with the club in your hands.
It’s not coming from inside it’s just coming back to itsel and it’s always coming back outside us inside itself and you better learn what WIDTH really is as your arms will never get smaller and our arc is always the length of our shoulders I’ve got wide shoulders
Lets go over this stuff in our next Skype hookup, I need to get way more up to speed about CMotion….. Davinci Code hasn’t got CMotion mechanics as a base of principal mechanics clearly… with where you are now with CMotion mechanics is probably the best time to have come on board to learn it because as you are saying now the ‘evolution’ is now at a different level of development.
hey jh love what you are doing but got to say went looking at cmotion when you brought lee up a while ago .The thing is i have right arm that is about 1and a half inches longer than my left and taking my left out of it and useing the ten finger grip i have started to improve my strike on the ball.thanks again . cheers rex
Man I wish my right arm was longer than my left… do you know Seve Ballesteros had a right arm that was longer than his left which is why he had the greatest address set of any Golfer in history … he didn’t have to pitch his right shoulder down at address because of the right hand being lower on the club.
The split grip can certainly work foe some people… Lee makes it work unbelievably, glad some things are working well for you.
JH, great stuff, my “push-slap” release is stable, definitely not going to toe down, its toe up if anything, yet tight in terms or arc and compact and connected, driven off the right hip pivot, it releases up, not down and around, it is the other 1/2 of the V you reference. What happens when I allow it to roll over is that I bring the occasional big left miss into play. Its a slap release, from a V structure, but it is stable, I never allow the wrists to turn down or roll over, adds an unnecessary complication. Spin the plate of meatballs at the top of backswing from the waiter position into your mouth at the end of the swing, allowing a serious slap right at the ball. Mike Austin like. Watching Lee videos it appears to me he does this, toe is up coming thru stable, not rolling over. Independent rolling wrist action is the enemy of the push-slap. IMHO. Snow this weekend, ugh !
If you have a look at this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3QVL8fRx30 and stop frame the front on post impact from the front on view position right through until the club gets to shoulder high on the follow through you will see how much Lee turns the club face down and over through the ball… he has the face pointing at the ground at just above knee level on the follow through.
That action is I think symptomatic as well of his wanting to hit the outside of the ball at impact … there is a bit of video some where taken from down the line in slo mo and it shows his club face at 90 degs to the ground post impact.
He gets away with that action because he never lets his shoulders get open through the impact… that is an absolute requirement of the ‘push/slap’ action /release.
Ah, I see. I’m 6′ 4″, playing Maroon Ping Zing 2’s that are 4 degrees upright, and long, no Hogan swing or frame here, probably accounts for some of the difference in feel, but I do turn it down quite often, even when I feel like I have to fight that feel to play my best or eliminate the left side of the course. I’ll try cultivating that turn down, or toe over move a bit and see what happens. Start with the wedges etc…Great stuff TX!
As A difference in lie angles with ‘your’ irons… I think Lee ‘s irons are like 5 degs flat….my mate Martin Ayres had his irons at 6 degs flat for a while as well.
I will do more on the videos about the ‘slap/finger release turn down’ in coming videos… I hope to get more insight about the process from Lee as well.
How do you apply this to chipping? Understanding the pitching but chipping is a little different?
With chipping its usually around the fringe of the green where there is no need to get the ball into the air unnecessarily because you are not needing to get the ball over something like a bunker etc. as you do when pitching from around and off the green.
So the emphasis should always be to minimize any undue arm travel because it has a propensity to alter club head direction which if happens only a small amount can have significant effect on the accuracy of direction of a chip shot…
With any chip shot you should always get loaded forward at address with your general body mass so as to ensure there is a a tendency to have the club head moving level to downwards through the ball at impact so as to eliminate any possibility of hitting the ball fat .
Whereas the general mass is loaded forward at address the trail forearm is still connected to the trail hip area and the movement of the club head is purely activated by the hinging of the wrist only… there is no forward/lateral travel of the hands to the target.
Because the trail arm is connected at the elbow to the trail hip the club grip/shaft is further back than normal so the shot flight will be lower so club selection should be considered when the specifics of the shot power and height are being considered.
By having the trail arm connected strongly to the hip area the chipping strike will always be solid because of the further back setting of the hands so that must be understood if a very delicate soft chip is required… for club players that shot invariably should be putted rather than chipped anyway.
