Let's now enter the third swing, the one that is more complex on a coordination level and more related to your physical condition. Even in this case, however, the difference is the ability to bring the club face square to impact. This comes naturally from some fundamental points: a good technique, a good touch and a good representation of the flight you want to achieve.
At the base of the Power swing the modern concept to work on is the correct rotation of the body, in this sense we can say that the more correct is the rotation, the more controllable is the position of the club face and therefore the quality of the impact. Only if you get stable values in these parameters you will be able to catch the ball in the center. As far as this ability to improve the impact is concerned, the JollyGolf will help you to acquire the right passes in very fast times. This you get in a simple way every time you are about to make a hit after you have mounted it correctly. As in the other shots examined above the references are always the same. Grip, Alignment, Stance, Posture. If you tackle them one at a time, with a certain discipline, you will quickly build the foundation for a good game.
What surprised us too after a short time and the advantage thanks to the JollyGolf that you have in keeping a level of attention to the fundamentals of the game. And take our word for it, all the problems of the swing are linked in large percentage to this passage. In fact, when you look at the players' problems, most of the gaps are inherent in the fundamentals. Also in this area of the game follow the 4 steps of the G.a.s.p.
Too often you see wrong grips, just take a look at the point of wear of the gloves often revealing an inaccurate grip to understand what the level of play is. If you see a hole in the glove near the palm, your grip is incorrect! With the JollyGolf, it will be easier to grip, start with the left hand (if you are left-handed, do the opposite). Keep the golf club parallel to the ground with the face pointing upwards and hold it with the right hand. Of the left hand you should see about 2 knuckles from that position. If the left hand is in the correct position it will be very easy to adjust the right hand.
The alignment is a necessary parameter to send the ball to the target because aiming correctly is a skill of the player, who must be trained as the Clay Pigeon shooter goes to the firing range. Use a stick and put it on the ground between you and the ball, use it often, it makes you understand how to manage the direction of the shots and how the start of the movement should be oriented.
The stance represents above all the static balance but also the dynamic balance throughout the swing. It is your grip with the ground, to optimize it in the recommended exercises practiced with a neutral stance with feet as wide as the shoulders, left foot slightly open to the target with the weight equally distributed on both feet.
I close with the posture that although it depends very much on the physical characteristics of the individual should be continuously monitored with the help of a mirror.
Try not to be too erect (few body angles) and not too bent (body angles too accentuated), tilt your torso forward with your arms rather relaxed and bend your knees slightly. The best idea to pursue is to be toned with the lower body and relaxed with the upper body.
Try to use the JollyGolf for more controlled shots, avoiding the Driver unless you do it at rather low intensity. You will improve a lot in the detachment, in the control of the hands during the swing, you will feel better the rotation of the torso and you will quickly acquire better coordination and a certain connection between arms and torso.
The rituals to observe before each performance :
-Mirror for control of the fundamental
-G.a.s.p. to check each time before the shot
-3/4 vacuum swing to familiarize yourself with the tool
-Punch shots to control the divots
1. Get into position.
2. Top Up the golfclub
4. Turn forward.
Every good player has the ability to find the low point of the swing arch and this is definitely the great secret of golf!
The practice with JollyGolf
After having listed and detailed the characteristics of JollyGolf and taken you into the world of technology, we have finally reached the most concrete part. The training part.
Training and above all maintaining a high level of attention are skills that must be educated and cultivated. They are the basis for real success in golf and it is not always easy to follow them. Most players have little time to stop at the range, and we all know that in the end the course, is a powerful magnet that attracts us by making us avoid the practice, often even the warm up is omitted and at the expense of the first holes that are the most tiring from all points of view.
If you have bought JollyGolf it means that your ideas are clearer, that you have a certain determination, that you have finally decided to take a step in this direction. In Golf trying to reduce the problems to the bone, we have two types of problems: DIRECTION AND DISTANCE, improving the quality of the IMPACT improves both !!!These two aspects will be our goal and thanks to JollyGolf you will be able to manage them. Below we propose you exercises that do not take more than 20/30 minutes, which is the time we consider optimal for a single exercise. You can, of course, create practice modules that are suitable for your problems. Our advice to you is to try to cover all areas of the game in the course of a week, do not focus on just one aspect. ALTERNATE DURING THE TRAINING THE USE OF JOLLYGOLF , EX 10 rep with and 10 without. You will have more benefits and be more adaptable.
Session No.1 (5/10 mins )
Goal: Warm Up
Suitable on the tee of hole 1 if you have a few minutes or before the training session.
The exercise helps you to be focused on the gesture and the correct sensation of body rotation. Swing very slowly, use the JollyGolf after mounting it on a 6/7 iron. Before each swing, review the fundamentals (GASP) and focus on the start of the movement. Keep very light pressure on the grip and avoid moving your body sideways, try to be very centered and balanced. After a few swings, start moving with your eyes closed and pay attention to the sensations you feel. Breathe normally, and look for a rhythm. Keep flowing and pay attention to tensions. This exercise, which we can call preparatory, despite the absence of the ball is very effective in terms of awareness of the gesture and allows you to optimally synchronize the various parts of the body.
Session No.2 ( 20/30 mins.)
Goal: Body rotation and swing width control
Target : 50/60 m. Locate a practice area where there is a target at a distance of 50/60 m. if you can align with a stick resting on the ground. After checking the GASP, keep the ball in the center of the stance with a little more weight on the left leg, hold the grip a little shorter than usual. The hands are quite passive. The idea that you should try is to guide the ball with the rotation of the body neutralizing as much as possible the action of the hands.
The sequence of strokes should be
No. 10 With JollyGolf No. 10 Without JollyGolf No. 10 With JollyGolf N.10 With separate hands, split grip (to reinforce the technical principle)
Session No.3 (20/30 mins.)
Goal: Improve backswing quality and swing lines
Target 50/60 m..The backswing is the most delicate moment of the gesture, too often hands, arms are too active with the result of having the movement plane very unstable, creating many problems in the impact phase. To avoid unnecessary movements, a good exercise is to put a stick in the ground that has the plane of the shaft far enough away from the ball not to get in the way. Bring the iron with your hands that do not exceed the height of the right shoulder in the back and try to keep the inclination of the shaft in the down end forward with your hands at the height of the left shoulder.
Sequence. 10 swing with JollyGolf 10 Without. Swing free (trying to have the same sensations)
Session No.4 (20/30 mins.) Use : iron 9/8
Goal : Suitable for those who have difficulty rotating in the backswing and who are looking for reference points
Step, swing. It's an exercise that refines the sequence. .
The sequence is based on:
1 Gasp, activation of the wrists upwards,
2 torsion of the torso to the right (if left handed),
3 impact and rotation towards the target.
The intensity of the gesture should be contained, 50/60% in relation to its maximum.
No. 10 swing with JollyGolf No. 10 Without JollyGolf No. 10 With JollyGolf N.10 Full swings
Session n. 5 ( 20/30 mins.) Use : 5 wood or hybrid
Goal : Suitable for those seeking more connection and balance, also gives great benefits on the rhythm of execution
During the swing the wrists are rather passive and soft, in the GASP the ball should be placed slightly to the left and supported by the tee. We suggest to execute the gesture at 60/70% when using the JollyGolf. Look for the quality of the impact, use a spray to check if you hit the ball in the center of the stick.
No.10 swing with JollyGolf No.10 Without JollyGolf No.10 With JollyGolf No.10 Full swings
Session n.6 (20/30 Mins.) Use: Iron 7/8/9
Goal: to raise the perception of impact by testing your proprioceptivity and coordination skills.
This is a session suitable for those who feel comfortable with their swing, during the executions you will have to choose a target and once you have checked all the parameters of the GASP, do shots with your eyes closed. It won't be easy at first, but as you proceed with the exercise you will acquire precise sensations, which will help you on the field to be more confident and confident.
