Watch "Coming Too Far From the Inside" Video


too far from the insideWhen a golfer starts coming too far from the inside and under the plane, a multitude of bad shots are the result that can turn a day at the course into a drudgery of "Army Golf" - left, right, left, right. Three shots are typically the result - the push, the snap hook and the dreaded shank. All three of these shots are extremely closely related and are typically considered a "better" player's miss because this more "advanced" golfer has learned to approach the ball from the inside. However, tell a better player that his big snap hook is a because he's such a good player and I can assure you he won't agree. Unfortunately, this fault in the golf swing is caused by a multitude of good things happening in the swing, but that are often overdone or not quite done correctly. But specifically, in this article I'm going to discuss some terrible golf swing advice for the Rotary Swing that you've no doubt heard a million times from an instructor or friend with good intentions. The saying that will destry the rotary motion: "Extend your arms down the target line," or "Shake hands with the target." This is absolutely HORRIBLE advice for the Rotary Swinger and in this video, I'm going to show you exactly why.


Because of the flatter nature of the Rotary Swing plane, there is already a tendency for the golfer to attack the ball too much from the inside. For those of you who have sliced your entire life and have all of sudden found yourselves hitting a draw for the first time, this is welcome relief! But, as you progress and begin to add more power to your golf swing, you'll no doubt begin to find those nice little soft draws turn into devastating snap hooks and apart from a shank, there is no more terrifying shot in golf for the better player. If you have already found yourself hitting hooks or big blocked shots, heeding the advice of extending your arms down the target line will add one more shot to your arsenal - a shank. But why?


The simple answer is that you are obviously already coming too far from the inside and need to get the club working back to the left after impact in order to get the club to work on an arc, taking the hosel out of play. Feeling as if you are extending your arms down the target line or feeling as if the club "works down the line" longer will exasperrate your swing fault and cause you to have a severe in to out path. In this video, I discuss and demonstrate how to get the club working back around to the left through understanding how the left arm remains connected to the upper torso and must be allowed to FOLD, that's right FOLD - not extend, in order to get the club working properly on plane and on the proper arc. At first, this will feel as if you have a very narrow arc and are hitting a fade through the impact area if you are used to releasing down the line and then flipping your hands to square the face. But fear not, this tight arc is the proper feeling and, in fact, is a MUST for the better player to control the plane and path of the golf club.


You will see many of the drills come to new life after watching this video. The Bucket Drill, the One Legged Drill, the Half Shots Drill and many others will begin to take on new meaning as you finally begin to understand what causes these awful hooks, blocks and shanks and you will finally understand the simple cure to fix all the problems once and for all! Keep in mind, this is only for golfers who tend to come too much from the inside. If your divots are steep and already pointing left, this video is NOT FOR YOU!
