"Golf isn't one swing fits all!"

What factors determine the right swing for you? There is a science to it.

This image shows how the body functions ideally you have alternating segments of mobile and stable joints. 

When the pattern is disrupted by injury, poor technique, bad posture, diet etc you end up with compensations in your swing.

Inconsistencies and frustration are caused by those compensations that happen when you do things that your body isn't capable of.

Anything can go wrong when you have disruptions and compensations in this pattern.

To get to the bottom of fixing your key misses you need to define them.

The chart on the right illustrates the 13 ball flights.

  1. Pull Hook - Starts left, curves left ending left of target

  2. Pull - Starts left, flies straight ending left of target

  3. Pull Fade - Start left, curves right and ends left of the target 

  4. Fade - Starts left, curves right and ends at the target 

  5. Pull Slice - Starts left, curves right and ends right of the target 

  6. Hook - Starts straight, curves left and ends left of the target 

  7. Straight - Starts straight and goes straight and ends at target 

  8. Slice - Starts straight, curves right and ends right of the target

  9. Push Hook - Starts right, curves left and ends left of the target 

  10. Draw - Starts right, curves left and end at the target 

  11. Push Draw - Starts right, curves left and ends right of the target 

  12. Push - Starts right, goes straight and ends right of the target 

  13. Push Slice - Starts right, curves right and end right of the target

Do you know what your most common shot is?

What causes the ball to curve?

What causes the ball to start where it does?

(Data compiled from millions of golf balls hit on Trackman)

  • Face angle, impact location, and club path contribute to the golf balls' starting direction.

    • Face angle =

      • 80% with Driver​

      • ​75% with irons​

    • Impact location - AKA Gear Effect (bigger influence on drivers and fairway metals)

      • Heel contact - ball starts left and curves right​

      • Toe contact - ball starts right and curves left

      • High contact - low spin

      • Low contact - high spin

    • Path = 

      • 20% with Driver​

      • 25% with Irons

Spin axis is determined by the D-Plane

The D-Plane is the difference between face angle and club path at contact.

What is gear effect and why is it so important to driving the ball well.

Have you ever hit a shot where the club felt like it twisted in your hand? 

This a common indicator of an off center shot. Part of gear effect is the club turning in the opposite direction relative to the golf ball curve.

For example a shot struck off the heel will provide you with the feeling of the club face twisting closed while ball will curve to the right.

Gear effect is less significant in irons than woods.

You'll struggle to improve without a clear understanding of your
"Body-Swing Connection"

Without an understanding of your body, you can't build the swing that will be best for you.

Your swing is a representation of your Fundamental movement skills (FMS). You will struggle to positively affect your swing until you understand them and their role in your game. 

If you are attempting a swing change that you don't have FMS to perform. How well do you think that will go?

I'm sure at some point you've tried something in your swing that went horribly. Possibly, even if it was recommended by someone else who had success with the thought or drill.

That's an indicator that you didn't have the necessary FMS to use the drill and find success. It happens to all of us at some point. We get to the point where our body seems to fight what we're working on. 

The body swing connection is determined by gaining an understanding of your unique movement capabilities.

 

Once you understand your body-swing connection, you can build a swing around what you do best! 

What is TPI?

1655826928401.jpg

"We don’t believe there is one way to swing a club; we believe there are an infinite number of ways to swing a club. But we do believe that there is one efficient way for everyone to swing a club and it is based on what they can physically do."  - TPI

TPI has identified the connections between movement capabilities and the golf swing they create.

 

They believe everyone has an efficient way to swing the club. Meaning your swing should be unique.

 

To say all players must be in certain positions and to teach everyone the same technique makes no sense at all. Everyone has a different body and mind and should be treated like an individual

 

If you want to play your best you have to find the most efficient swing for you. It doesn't matter how your swing looks, only how well it gets the job done!

How can you find the swing that fits you?

TPI created a screening process that identifies the fundamental movements you have and the ones you need to learn or compensate for.

 

The screen highlights what you do well and what you don't, but most importantly it defines what you can and can't do in the golf swing.

The screen is very detail-oriented as you are trying to spot your movement tendencies and compensations.

It's hard to improve at this game, one way we know helps 81% of golfers  shoot lower scores

Jason was new to golf and had only played for a few months but saw little to no improvement without a plan. He got his Golf Blueprint on March 17th and he gained 60 yards by May 7th! Watch the before/after comparison.

This chart proves the time-tested theory

More distance = lower scores

Can you imagine hitting it 10+ yards farther and how that will help your game?

Improving club speed can help you gain more than just 10 yards,  with a speed increase you'll also hit your irons longer leading to hitting 2+ clubs less into the green.

Without a plan, golf is a struggle. With a plan, you won't have to question what went wrong.

Inconsistent contact

Lack of distance

Inaccuracy

Divot action mats allow you to practice your full swing, short game, putting, and even bunker shots in the comfort of our indoor studio.

Rough Mat

"I love the DivotAction™ surface. You can tell when you hit behind the ball. When you do, it doesn’t send shock up your elbow like the mats at the range. This allows me the ability to practice everyday without injuries (no elbow or shoulder injury), but most important, the data I get when hitting from DivotAction™ with Trackman™ -  the data readings are dead-on just like I get when hitting from real grass tees!"

You're able to practice indoors in a controlled environment and get feedback you can take right to the course with confidence. Get to the course knowing you can hit every shot needed to play your best.

End the frustration of trying to make a change your body isn't built to do. 

 

With a plan based on what you do best, You'll step up to the first tee with confidence in your game.

Even if you're new or don't play much you can build confidence, gain distance, and accuracy while learning to self correct on your own.
