I need a cell phone drill to know how to run that stupid thing, but I know how to do it with the golf swing.
So here's my cell phone, and I've got the screen part here.
It's going to be pointing down.
This is really to alleviate the scooping move, or rolling the club open, on the way back.
When I take the cell phone back, see? I'm keeping the cell phone pointed down.
Now, let me ...
something to sort of relate to here.
Let's take a look at Bubba Watson.
You heard of him? Let's make him right handed.
There you go.
Now, watch Bubba when he takes it back.
See where his palm is facing? Let's take a look at this, just for fun.
I didn't think about this before.
There's 45, 44 degrees.
What have we got here? 48 degrees, huh? 47? Pretty close! Pretty close.
Then, you continue up, just turn the chest, there you go, and now you've got the cell phone skyward.
Now this, of course, is excessive, but the whole idea is to get this right elbow underneath and to hinge your right hand properly at the top, see? It doesn't really come out that way.
So you see, this is a little excessive, but that's all right.
This is a drill.
Then, as you come down, and notice this.
Look at that.
You see how this shaft would be in your hand? Look at that.
Look at that angle, see? That probably feels really, really [hing-ed 00:02:04] to you if you've never been this way before, and now look at the back of my hand there at impact.
I've got the phone somewhat pointed down at the ground, quite frankly.
See? Here, turn.
Because what you've got to stay away from is the scooping effect, which would be the face of that phone pointed skyward.
We don't want that, ever.
You want to trap the ball.
You want to almost feel like you're compressing the ball against the ground, that's where you hear people say, "Hit down on it." It's not a matter of hitting down on it, it's a matter of keeping the right hand ...
[inaudible 00:02:44] your left hand palm will be skyward after you hit the ball, and the right palm will be pointed down.
Everybody does sort of the reverse, they've got the right palm pointed skyward because they're trying to get the ball airborne, they're trying to get it up.
Hopefully that drill will help you, it's an easy one to do.
It'll get you to quit rolling that golf club open on the way back, which just gives you that much more real estate to cover to try to square the club back up at impact.
