Tyler Parsons: What's up YouTube? Tyler Parsons here again trying to give you some more golf fitness tips, help improve that game.
We're in the gym setting but again something a little different for you today.
I always like to keep you on your toes.
Look at club face control.
What we can do away from the course to sort of help that out.
It's really going to involve working that core but the big thing, a lot you want to be looking at the rate of closure with that club face and really trying to time it up with the hands, feeling them release and roll over.
My opinion, big no no.
We want to be looking at our fixed axis, which is the spine and rotating around that torso.
This is what's going to be the most helpful to control that club face.
If we're using big muscles, ie, our core, our chest, and really rotating, it's going to be difficult to speed those up.
One shot to the next versus day in day out what have you.
We want to eliminate as much of the timing aspect of your game as we can.
That's why I like for that club face to be controlled.
We're going to go on and pivot and drive over to here.
We're rotating around and as we're getting in through here, I'm really just trying to get my hand to this position, so I'm thinking of this right palm to really coming in and staying in through here.
Then we want to turn.
Now that club face is closing down for me.
Depending on that path, is going to determine really where that shaping.
As far as getting that club face back to that start line, easy job.
What can we do? I've got my nice little resistance band here.
You can do this drill just with this palm, but it lets you help see a little bit better.
I'm going to make it difficult on me just to make it better for you.
We're going to go to here.
Now, I've got my club into my hand and again what I'm doing is I want to drive over to this left and now I'm going to rotate.
As I get into this position, again we can see that right palm facing in towards that start direction.
I think the club head's going to be a little out of frame there, but we're going in.
Do it up here so you can see, nice square face, driving.
The harder I turn, and the further along we go, the more we see that closing.
It's not going to be a matter of my hand rolling over.
Again, we get into this nice little position.
Turn and really try to focus on that club face, making sure that it's into that proper spot.
Turn around and get rid of the club.
We should be in that nice, little, simple position clearing on through, turning around that left side, bracing in through that mid section using big muscles, not fine twitch muscles of the hand, to help out that club face.
Hope it's helpful.
Check it back.
