What we're going to talk about right now is developing shaft lean, that's the big thing going on now.
Shaft lean, shaft lean, you got to have shaft lean.
Well, don't over cook it, will you? Here's what I did to help out.
You take the stick, one of those snow poles that you can get at Lowe's for $1.50, see there, I clear my left hip.
The idea of the snow pole there is to prohibit the ability to slide, because when you slide you're going to toss the golf club or what they call premature release, whatever.
Here turn, turn, turn, you're holding the angle and turning and then you'll get what they call the shaft lean.
Of course this is very excessive because it's only a drill and you'll be able to de-loft the golf clubs or what.
I'm going to show you a guy that's got probably the best shaft lean out there, I think, I mean I don't know, there might be another one, but where the heck did he go? There he is.
He's going to take it back, he's going to come down, see that's shaft lean.
The opposite would be the club head ahead of your hands, which is what I see all the time.
Flipped, here he's de-lofting the golf club, he's turned a seven iron into a six iron and he's keeping the back of his left hand, see this right here, how that's nice and solid.
No flipping there, no breakdown on the left wrist.
That's the drill for, is to make sure you clear the hips and get the hands out in front of the ball.
Now you got to be careful with this because some people get too hung up with having the most shaft lean and the most angle and what have you and man, next thing you know they're catching the ball right on the neck.
You could over do it.
What do they say? Everything in moderation.
Everything in moderation, see, but I get to the top, now what do I do? I rotate.
I get to the top and now I turn and hold the club in the same position it was in.
If you're real flipped, you're flipping a lot with the hands, which means you're also catching the ball on the bottom of the golf club because of the flip this is a good drill for you, but like I said, don't over do it, I'm warning you.
