Today I want to talk about a very common swing fault that’s called flipping through impact. This is a killer for distance and accuracy in your golf swing. I want to show you a simple fix but before I do I want to make a disclaimer.
All the videos that I shoot are based on my own personal experience. I’ve viewed over a thousands golf swing videos of PG players, senior PG players and all levels of handicapped players.
And I’ve studied the golf swing inside and out, so I know the biomechanics. But when I shoot a video like this, I’m coming from my own personal experience and opinion. And so my videos are based on feel. What something should feel like.
And I know throughout all the years that I took lessons from some of the best instructors in the world (some of them were underground – not known to the public), I used to beg them to show “how should it feel?”
And they couldn’t tell me. So I adjusted through trial and error and got it on my own. So I shot the above video to show you a really simple feel that’s going to fix your flip through impact.
So here it is…
When you’re flipping at impact there are many causes, and we’re not going to get into these that could cause the flip from way at the top of the back swing coming down. But we’re going to talk about when it happens through impact here.
So innately, especially the higher handicapped golfer is going to feel like they want to hit at the ball. And that’s called an early release and you can see that with my hands in the video, I’m releasing the club way too early.
There’s no lag going through impact and actually when you release it early and flip it, you know what you’ll actually do? You’re adding a loft to your irons. And if you ever wonder why your ball flight is real high and it’s short maybe even ten or twenty yards, just imagine, this is a seven iron. So if I came through impact and flipped it, I’ve just added, I’ve just turned this seven iron inch into an eight or nine iron.
Losing Yards With Every Club
Remember, each iron is roughly ten yards approximately. So if we’ve taken this seven iron and turned it into an eight iron, now we’ve lost ten yards. Some of the golfers flip it so bad they turn it into a nine iron, that’s twenty yards with your irons. So when I show you this fix you’re going to get excited because this is going to give you ten to twenty yards on your irons immediately.
Here’s How It Should Feel
Okay, so here is the feel that I want. Here is the simple, little tip. So when you get in to impact, you’ve got to have a cock in your right wrist here. So instead of flipping your wrists, you need to feel like your coming down with your palm covering the ball, and your wrist still turned back on itself.
And the feel for you and the feel for me when I do this is that my handle is way ahead of my hands and way ahead of my club head when I come through impact. Something like this.
Now I know this looks dramatic to you but it won’t be once you do your actual swing. But remember when you’re doing drills, especially on the range, you need to go to the other extreme because what’s going to happen is what you think you’re doing is what you’re not doing in real person, in life. So I want you to feel like your hands are way ahead.
When you watch the video, the feeling I got one time on the range was that I was going to take the palm of my hand right here and I was going to drive it through the ground past impact. The palm of my hand so I wasn’t even thinking about my wrist at all at this point. I was thinking even though the club was in my hand, I was thinking of my palm driving down and through the ground like that.
And watch what happens when you do that. Look at the leg – so I’m driving my palm down. Look at that leg in the club and when you hit a ball like this, you’re going to compress that ball like you’ve never done before, it’s going to make a sound that’s different than you’ve ever heard before and it’s going to take off at a low trajectory with lots of spin but you’re going to get maximum distance because of that compression on the ball from that club face.
So again the tip is…
Drive the palm of your right hand if you’re a right-handed golfer – drive it almost right into the ground and like I said when you’re on the range, over-cock it. Really try to get it out like this when you do it.
And when you do that, look at the difference of doing that as opposed to doing this. It’s dramatic, that’s like comparing apples and oranges. So that’s the tip today, it’s to drive your palm into the ground. And then of course after you’ve hit the ball, the rotation of your body is going to continue through and that’s what swings the club through to the post impact position. It’s not your arms, it’s the rotation of your body that gets you post impact.
Give that a try and I know that’s going to help you. But in the mean time I want to show you a really neat training aid that will fix this problem very quickly.
It’s called the golf wrist leg aid, In the video I have it on my hand so and you can see what it does. It automatically puts a bend on my right wrist which is a perfect bend to have wrist cock coming through impact. This is a hard piece of plastic tightly wrapped around my forearms so there is no give in that.
Rotate Your Body To Hit The Ball
I mean for me to hit a golf ball, I’m forced to have to rotate through with my body to hit the ball. Because remember with this aid on, it’s forcing my wrist to stay back because again we want to fix the flip.
So the only way to hit this golf ball now is to rotate through with my upper body. And my lower body is going to get out of the way but the neat thing about this training aid is that it’s going to teach me that forward leaning shaft, that compressure on the golf ball and it’s also going to force me to rotate my body through.
Now being a mid to high handicapped golfer, you might not even know that feeling. You might only know the feeling of the arms throwing out at the ball. So when you do this and when you wear the aid you’re forced to rotate through. The sound that you’re going to get when you hit that ball is going to be like none you’ve ever heard before.
Solid Impact Like Never Before
It’s going to be like the pros truly. It’s going to be crisp and compressed and that ball is gong to shoot off low and then gather height as it goes up in the air a little bit but you’re going to see a lower trajectory through the take-off area through the first five or ten feet.
This is a phenomenal golf aid. It’s so good and effective that I now sell it on my website. It’s like $40. I mean $40 is like a pizza and a couple of beers in your body, I mean what’s that worth to you to fix this really painful swing fault?
I hope you get it, I hope it helps you and I want to hear your success stories via email. So hit the button below and get it today.
There is a lot of golf instruction out there that is making it difficult for the high handicap and older golfer understand what exactly they are doing wrong, and more importantly, how to fix it.
My goal is to show you how it feels, from a slightly above average golfer, not a teaching pro.
Proven Resource To Eliminate The Flip In Your Golf Swing
I want to talk about lateral sway in your golf swing. I know it was a big problem I had for a long time and it felt like it took forever for me to fix it. But now that I’ve got some good feelings and some thoughts, I want to relay them to you so that you can fix it a lot quicker than I did.
Lateral Sway – Upper Body Or Lower Body
So a lateral sway can be in two parts of your body. Obviously it can be in the upper body where you sway off the ball and it can also be in the lower body where you swaying – your lower body, your knees are moving outside too much. That’s the part of the body I want to talk about today, the lower body.
So what happens here is when you get to address, your legs are kind of at an angle. You can see this angle here. I want you to focus on your right knee if you’re a right-handed golfer. That right knee should not move. It can rotate a little bit, but it should not move outside of where it’s at here.
Use A Club
So if you watch me in the video, and I hit that club, I just moved off the ball three inches. Anytime you do something in the back swing, that’s an extra movement, you have to undo it in the down swing. So you’re adding more complication to your golf swing.
So a good tip to think of is that when you’re rotating back, really think of having a still right knee like really solid. So when you make that back swing, look at my right knee here, when I make it, I feel like I’m kind of in a squat position and I’m not going to let that kneecap move at all. My leg can rotate as my hip rotates backwards but it’s not going to move to the side.
Here’s The Feeling
The thought in your head and the feeling you’re going to have is that right knee rock solid, not moving at all. And you can start this drill or use this tip with partial shots until you’re comfortable with it, then you can make a full swing. So again, as you’re going back, that right knee is not moving at all, it’s staying right there. Think of that and that’s going to really help your golf swing.
Fast Way To Fix Your Sway
Now I want to show you a training aid that can correct this swing fault. The leg strap does not allow my right leg to move out to the side at all, therefore automatically fixing your lateral swing and your golf swing.
Even if you’re not at the golf range, you could do this in your home so those of you that may be during the winter months or snowed in, you can put this on in your garage. The neat thing to do would be to do it in front of a mirror. That way you can really see how it’s correcting that lateral sway. So again if you watch me here, it’s really neat because it’s a very firm strap here between my legs. So there is no way my leg can move laterally to the side.
And for those of you who sway in your golf swing, it’s going to feel very different to you when you have this leg strap aid on because the minute you go back, you’re going to feel what I talked about earlier in this video, that you cannot move and you should not move laterally with your right leg.
So again, you just put this strap on and you can hit balls with it, too. Put the strap on, when you start rotating back, you see that that leg stays in the exact position that it’s supposed to be in. And the more you use this training aid, the more it’s going to ingrain the proper feel in your body and before you know it you’re not going to have a lateral sway in your golf swing anymore.

Proven Aid To Fix Lateral Sway
Golf is the sport of choice for many people. Many people enjoy playing golf in their leisure time. It is an excellent way to enjoy the outdoors and do light exercises. But many times golfers are wishing that they can go on playing golf forever and the other minute they are swearing off golf completely.
This is due to the fact that many golfers experience back pain at some point in their game. Many golfers skip their favorite pastime because of the pain, but many continue to enjoy the game and look for the ways to improve it.
Many times doctors recommend their patients to start playing the game because of its health benefits. The game helps a person’s heart and helps them be fit. The physical activity also helps an individual reduce stress and provides an opportunity to meet new people. But incorrect technique in the game, overuse of the game, and not using good equipment can aggravate an injury.
Although I’m not an experienced golf player nor have the skills of a professional player, but here I will give you a few tips that will help you reduce the back and neck pain that is associated with playing golf. Also with these simple lifestyle precautions, you can enjoy golf and improve your game at the same time.
A proper golf posture is an important part of a good and a consistent golf game. There are many different gadgets and equipments that aim to help golfers in maintaining good posture before the game as well as during and after their swing. Many of amateur golfers think that a good posture in golf is to stand tall and pull the shoulders back.
But a slight change in a person’s posture such as foot positioning, distribution of weight, the angles of your hips and knee, position of your lower back and the directions of your shoulder can affect your game and overall physical health.
Although, no golfer is protected from injuries whether it’s you or the PGA pro. But the difference is that the PGA pro is a trained sportsperson and rarely breaks his form. You, on the other hand, might screw up your golf posture all the time. The result of an improper golf posture might be a consistently bad game.
But if you improve your golf posture before, during, and after your swing then you might train yourself to lead a good golf game and in due course a lower score.
The companies that advertize the equipments that help correcting a golfer’s posture might sometimes be of assistance. But a couple reasons that have no association to golf can also unknowingly affect your golf posture and prevent you from playing a good game. The factor is known as pain and body imbalance.
We all assume that if we are in pain then it might be difficult for us to play a good game. We have all seen golf games on LIVE TV. The best and the most experienced players can look like a beginner because of a hurting back or a knee that’s causing pain. If our body is in pain, then we will either deliberately or non-deliberately make changes in our golf posture to avoid and sometimes lessen the pain.
No matter how skilled a player you are, your body is bound to adjust itself for the pain and that will cost you to spoil your game. It is also not necessary for you to be in constant or severe pain to wreck your game. A slight change in the proper golf posture can create upsetting results.
There are about 85 % of golfers who suffer from the pain of neck and lower back during their game. But most of them enjoy the sport so much that they improve their game by applying techniques that help them reduce the pain.
Body imbalance is the second factor that leads to a bad game. Most of our body is categorized as “weight-bearing.” The term is similar to a stack of block or the walls that bear the weight of our house. Our body is also built on top of itself. Starting from our feet to the knees, hips, spines, and even our heads are formed as a weight-bearing chain.
Our body is well balanced in the perfect world. If a person was split down the middle, then the right side of their body will be a mirror image of their left side. And when looked at you from a side view, your head will be over your shoulders and the shoulders over your waist and your waist will be visible from your waist. The body will be perfectly upright and balanced.
But acquiring perfect body balance might be rare unless you are already working towards achieving it. Our modern world is full of people that show improper body balance. Those who walk around with their head tilted one shoulder higher than the other is one of the examples of body imbalance. Pelvic shifts, shoulders rolled forward, poor posture, and shifting of the lower back can also cause the body to lose its balance.
Even if you have the ability to turn further to one side than the other or the muscles are tighter on the right then the left then the person is also said to be showing signs of body imbalances. The body imbalances can cause stress to your weight-bearing body and initiate pain in certain parts of the body.
Any area or part of the body can be affected by body imbalance, but the most common areas of pain are the lower neck that runs between the shoulder blades and the lower areas of the back. Most people are not aware that they are in the form of body imbalance. The shifts in our body weight are signs that your body has gotten used to the improper balance over the course of your lifetime.
You might be thinking that what body imbalance and golf have in common. Well, most importantly, your body will never completely heal from an injury or a fall if you are showing signs of body imbalance. It is similar to expect a scab to heal when you keep picking at it.
Body imbalance will cause you to repeatedly injure yourself and keep initiating the pain associated with your injury. This is why we keep experiencing pain in the same area over and over again. And we already know that a golfer in pain is not able to play his or her best game.
Most sufferers of lower back pain presume that they have to be in pain. They assume that the pain is inherited or just bad luck of life. But that’s not true. Regardless of your age group or the diagnosis of your symptoms, if you are able to pinpoint the imbalances of your body and try to rectify them, then most probably your body will heal more and you will see your neck and back pain shrinking.
The other reason for body imbalance that affects the gameplay of golfer is that a messed up golf posture will ultimately break a good game of golf. Body imbalance is not always associated with pain. The body imbalance is sometimes very slight and many people are not aware of the imbalance of their body before they start feeling the pain.
If your head is tilted to one side, or one of your shoulder is slightly higher than the other then the poor posture can create disturbing results in your game. A high hip, an imbalanced muscle, or a forward dipped pelvis are also signs of body imbalance and will wreck the final score of your game.
The body imbalance can also be compared to your car while it’s out of alignment. You might not notice your car pulling to one side or your tires going here and there while driving around town. But you will definitely become aware of your car being out of alignment when you take the same car out to race.
The car would be impossible to compete with and you would most probably destroy the tires of your car in the meantime. The reason for these devastating results will not be that your car is bad or your tires are not of good company, but because it’s not in good shape.
The same rule applies to the human body. Body imbalances can cause unnecessary stress to certain areas of our spine. The bones, ligaments, disc, and muscles are not created as weak or fragile, but since they are being used improperly they tend to break more. The result of these excessive stresses is long-term back pain and reoccurring pain.
To get relief from the neck and back pain, an individual needs to be aware of its body imbalances and try to correct it also. Without addressing the cause of your symptoms, you might not be able to get relief from the pain.
Once a person becomes aware of the importance of body balance and starts correcting their own imbalances, he or she can 99% live a pain-free life. An individual should have a goal to identify their own unique imbalance and try to correct it. The result of this can be a long-term neck and back pain relief.
A side benefit of correcting body imbalances is a great golf game. A reduced amount of pain and the body no longer compensating for its imbalances, many golfers are able to maintain a proper golf posture throughout their gaming sessions.
