Do you hang back on your trail foot after impact? In this tip, Martin Chuck uses a teeter-totter to show the great benefits of finishing on your lead side. Start compressing the ball better than ever with this tip!
Hi Martin.. its been a long time.. since i sent in a comment(ie; revolution golf days). Great tip. Keep them coming. Thank you
Thanks for the note!!
Thank you for the time you put into this video! I can't wait to get the range to try this tip out!
This looks like a great tip to hit a low crispy shot from under a tree. Could be tip of the year!
Glad you like it. Thx
Martin, I would appreciate clarification of the lead knee flex which you recommend at the end of this video. Specifically, in which direction(s) should the lead knee be allowed to move in this flex?Thanks in advance, Gordon
Hello Gordon, the lead knee will flex toward the toes of the lead foot. And with rotation of the hips, will also shape towards the target a bit before the leg straightens out.
Thanks Martin, - the shaping towards the target before the leg straightens out is presumably on the downswing, meaning that the transition is initiated by the hip rotation?
Let your weight resettle on the left foot before you try to rotate the pelvis.
Love this drill. Extremely hard to stay low and through the ball. Will work on weight left side. Question— I see a lot of players coming through on right side “dip” lower and the right knee presses the left leg. What’s the motion to achieve this critical part of the swing?
Hello Greg, I would suggest doing your best rendition of what I’m doing w/out the board, just slowly. Add a little speed and weight pressure will go to the trail side and then back to the lead side. Start slow and build.
I have enjoyed your style of teaching and find your instruction clear and concise. Can you create an instructional video on what or how the the weight shift changes when hitting uphill (15 - 30 degrees) or facing a downhill shot?
Hi Arthur, thanks for the kind words. Over the years I’ve done many videos on the subject. Please use the search feature with GolfPass. Or, search my name and topic on YouTube. Cheers
