Speaker 1: Hey again, it's Tyler Parsons with parsonsgolfperformance.com.
Today, I'm coming with you with a power move that we can do, or maybe can't do.
If we can't, we're going to look at the fix.
One of the big things you're going to see with all those big hitters out on tour is once they're up in this top position, as they drop down, they're able to really allow that elbow to get tucked in and get in front of that hip, so they're not stuck.
I'll show it to you from this position as well.
Once they're up there, this elbow's dropping and coming in.
You really see it starting to externally rotate, and fall back so it's nice and pinned.
An easy way for us to check this on all our players is from a nice, straight position.
This will be something you can do at home.
Go back and see where does that arm get to.
We want to make sure that we're not cheating, and going through and bending it back.
If you notice that you're pretty much at-spine, or less than spine angle, we're going to know that's extremely tight.
We're going to make sure that that can really get back there.
From there, we'll drop down in that golf posture and we're going to see can they still do the same thing.
Again, is it stopping there, or is it continuing to go back? If it is coming up short, that's going to limit where we can get that arm to.
A lot of you will get to this position.
There, we're either forced to flip it, or hang onto it and hit those big blocks.
What we'll do is with our club, same thing, nice posture.
We're just going to grab, and I'm just slipping this over my arm, so it's just going to hang straight down that forearm.
From there, we're going to reach back and under, the arms out to the side.
All we want to do is just pull that back until we feel a nice little stretch, okay? Make sure that we're not grabbing it and just yanking it back.
That it's just nice and smooth.
Nice little stretch there for me, stopping, going through a couple of those.
Okay? Now to make it a little bit harder, we can drop down to that golf posture.
Resist the urge to arch and help it out, and really stretch it out.
Now, what we want to do is we want to go through that swing and really practice the feel of what it's like to get it from up top, for it to come down again and get pitched in front.
That this will definitely help out that impact position, that lag, creating a little bit more power for you.
