Don’t squeeze the life out of a good golf handle! Overly tight hands tend to struggle to smoothly control the ‘golf club. Newton and Mother Nature actually help you make really efficient ‘Golf Swings’ if you allow them to do so!

The general rule for great ‘Grip Pressure Consistency’ is to ‘Set-Up’ at your ‘Impact Fix’ and maintain this degree of ‘Pressure and Control’ throughout the entire Back & Up, Transition as well as the Down & Out segments.

Strive to establish and maintain a consistent Grip Pressure from Take-Away to Impact & Separation. The ‘Pinky, Ring and Middle fingers control the Golf Club Handle in both hands. When our ‘Ocular Acuity’ (Baby Blues) sense imminent ‘Impact & Separation’ our ‘Hitting Fingers’ (Thumb & Index Fingers) will naturally do their working part by getting a little firmer!

The ad read … “As of 11:37 last night we had provided 10,263 golf miracles to citizens like you!” Wow! Can these advertisers ever keep track of their statistics! If they are that good at numbers, they surely will provide solid product, education and value?

“Advanced nuclear physics doctor gained 51.63 yards with his driver in only two days! ONLY $6.00 per month might also gain you that much or more!” When there is a flavour of ‘Nuclear Physics’ in our golf, we may even be able to calculate our increased distance to three decimal places … 51.637 yards if you buy our tricked up digital range finder? Is that just ‘Carry’ or ‘Total Distance’? That kind of accurate gain has to be worth $6.00 per month!

Question? Does that factor Temperature, Humidity, Wind Vectoring and how tightly we have cinched up our undergarments and shoelaces as well as the weight of our new golf glove? With three decimal places, there has to be a formula that includes all these factors? Pretty amazing!

We can make a myriad of ‘Mental Errors’ during every round of golf or any period of ‘Human Occupational Challenge’. That is just our human nature fed by an abundance of curiosity and fear!

Remember we have only three ‘Human Tenses’ which over wrap our entireties! We can be enveloped in the ‘Past, Present and Future’. ‘The Past’ should reinforce our experiential and learning background. The more acutely we engage recall, the more effectively we can avoid repeat performances of negative events. We really can learn from our mistakes!

‘The Future’ can invite ‘Expectations’ and, if allowed to run ‘Amuck’ (out of control) can produce ‘Fear’ as a direct byproduct or outcome. I can assure you that ‘The Great Game’ is not well-served being washed in ‘Fear or Negative Energy’. Let me please tell you that, if you get to much ‘Out In Front Of Yourself’, you shall fall pretty to what your ‘555 Team’ refers to as ‘Outcome Golf’. “Oh, I need a birdie in the worst way!” This is truly ‘Negative-Outcome-Mindedness’. Not a happy place!

There are golf mechanical topics that sound a bit too ‘Physics Oriented’ (‘The Physics Of Rotation and The Geometry Of The Circle’) but, when broken down into really simple basics, are not as dauting as might have seemed up front by the title!

Our ‘5 Set-Ups’ (Posture, Grip, Stance, Ball Location & Alignment) are in every single golf strike made world-wide! Worthy of our focus! Let us look at ‘Stance & Ball Location’ please.

‘Stance’ is about the ‘Width’ between our feet as well as our ‘Foot Aim’ (options are ‘Open, Square & Closed’) The Brace or Push Foot should generally be Square. The Target or Steering Foot should generally be ‘Open’ to precipitate or invite the ‘Target Hip to Clear’. (see ‘Steer So Your Can Clear’)

There are always conditions in all parts of life! There are always conditions in the golf swing. Happiness depends on accomplishing these specific conditions properly and repeatedly. Your ‘Set-Up Protocols’ for every strike is absolutely predictable. Done properly, so too will be the ‘Outcome’ of your ‘Process’.

Your ‘Lower Body Machine’ (LBM – Ankles, Knees, Hips, Abdomen or Trunk, Shoulders, Neck and Head) forms the ‘Body Core’. It must be ‘Three Dimensionally Stable’.

In this manner, having accomplished ‘Stability’, your ‘Lever Assemblies’ or ‘Upper Body Machine’ (UBM – Shoulder Sockets, Upper Arms, Elbows, Forearms, Wrists, Hands and the actual Golf Club) can perfume ‘Orbitally’ on the ‘Properly Inclined or Tilted Swing Plane’.

Have you ever known allegedly dedicated and passionate golfers who,
rather than work on their ‘Basics & Fundamentals’,
seem to have ‘Nothing To Do and All Day To Do It’?
19th Hole Stool Warmers or Large Bucket Bangers
who cannot find the fairway with their driver
or ‘The 15 Foot Circle’ with their ‘Approach Irons’?

You are not one of these ‘Wannabe Pretend Participants’?
Sitting On Your Hands is often popular but not a productive posture!
‘Pushing String Up-Hill is NOT good exercise!

There has to be a more fertile approach to mastering this ‘Great Game’
while enjoying the ‘Process’ enroute to a predetermined, positive ‘Outcome’?

We are speaking about ‘Pureness Of Impact’. Hitting a golf ball on the screws makes a huge difference to your performance. (see ‘Compression & Line Of Compression’)(see ‘Straight Or Curving’ … ‘Spin Rate’)

The ‘Traditional Forged Blades’ had a ‘Pure Spot’ slightly towards the Heel or Hozel. (Center Of Mass [COM] or Coefficient Of Restitution [COR]) If we hit the ball on the toe, (1/2” to 3/4”) we could lose a ‘Leaky 20 Yards’. A heel strike was not nearly as penal as they were ‘Hozel or Heel Weighted’! Heel strikes tended to become a bit ‘Hooky’ with less loss of distance. The bush or OB on the ‘High-Energy Side of Target Line’ can be pretty nasty there as well.

The advent of ‘Forged Perimeter Weighted Cavity Backs’ (FPWCB) brought a totally different ‘Kettle Of Fish’ into reality … “Friendlier”!

The ‘14.2 Stainless Irons’ (SSPWCB) were designed to strike the ‘Measured Lateral Center’ of the face … designed to hit the enlarged middle of the Clubface’.

Simplicity rules!

Every procedure in the ‘Game Of Golf’ involves each one of our ‘5 Set-Ups’ … 1) Posture, 2) Grip, 3) Stance, 4) Ball Location and 5) Alignment. Your ‘555 Team’ is assuming that your mechanics is pretty well established in your life and that your ‘Putting & Chipping’ preparation is perfectly repeatable.

This ‘Bullet-Proof Skill Drill’ is a ‘Dance Floor Drill’. It should be done on your ‘Practice Green’ where it is ‘Dead Flat’. It takes out or eliminates the ‘Slope & Break’ variables.

If you can set-up to ‘Impact Fix’, with all the ‘Components’ inviting proper configuration through ‘The Impact & Separation Zone’ (Delivery & Release), you shall produce less ‘Get Lucky’ motions and actions, which inevitably invite erratic ‘Ball Flight Behaviour’.

Utilizing a properly established and disciplined ‘Impact Fix’, getting all the parts or pieces in place to accomplish a straight, properly shaped strike and Ball Flight, this ‘Process’ will make you more ‘Confident, Comfortable and Consistent’. Your scores will have smaller numbers and bigger smiles!

Here’s the ‘Dress Rehearsal Bottom Line’! If you can ‘Set-Up For Success’ (feel the ball’s going precisely where you plan it to go (Clubface Aim and Clubhead Path) and then accomplish your Back & Up Swing, followed by your ‘Transition’ and Down & Out Swing, in ‘Comfort’, you shall very likely ‘Hit The Ball Where You Are Looking’ … a ‘Magical Process’!

Do we want to be ‘More or Less’ active in our ‘Primary Articulating Joints’? (PAJ) There are 13 … Ankles, Knees, Hips, Neck, Shoulder Sockets, Elbows and Wrists.

Some of the ‘PAJs’ need to be ‘Less Active’ than the popular beliefs … some ‘More Active’.

Is a ‘Flippy-Handed’ swing an asset or a liability?

It is often said that ‘Hand Speed’ largely produces ‘Clubhead Speed, Smash Factor and Ball Speed’ which produces ‘Distance’. Certainly true but at what cost? Is there a cost?

This student and teacher of the game believes there is a cost … Accuracy and Control.

We hear that the ideal Grip should be ‘In The Fingers’. There are 14 Carpel and Meta Carpel Joints in the hand, plus the wrist bones. It is a compound-complex human structure.

We know that ‘Quiet Hand, Wrist, Elbow Triangles’ make for more predictable ‘Spin Rates’ and reduced ‘Ball Flight Curvature’.
