Why Golf Is So Hard - And the SOLUTION!


have you ever stopped to wonder why golf

is so hard

the massive improvements that we've had

in technology the equipment the balls

the conditions of the course how smooth

the Greens roll yeah golfers handicaps

remain basically exactly the same for

the last thirty years why is this let me

give you the answer today for the first

time for a lot of you I hope to

understand why golf is so hard why

you're struggling with it and I'm gonna

give you three videos at the end of this

they're gonna show you exactly how to

start in graining the right habits to

help you understand how to play better

golf and what its gonna take for you to

be a great ball striker that you want to

be like if you look like a tour player

when you're done working on these drills

so the first thing is I want you to

start thinking critically I want you to

think how I think about I think about

the golf swing

let's look objectively and some simple

things in the golf one all Tour players

look relatively the same at impact we

can all agree on that their left wrist

tends to be flat at impact you don't see

a lot of guys like a typical amateur

with this broken down cut left wrist the

club shaft tends to be leaning toward

the target and they don't tend to

chicken wing coming through so those are

three things that all Tour players tend

to do consistently well that the egg

that the exact opposite tends to happen

in amateur golfers they all tend to be

broken down at impact the right wrist is

flat and extended the left wrist is

broken down they tend to chicken wing

and the shaft is actually leaning

backwards at impact

now if the Tour player is doing the

exact opposite of what you're currently

doing the trick is understanding how

they're getting it to do what what they

want them to do and why are you doing it

the wrong way well let's think about a

couple things first objectively first of

all why is your golf glove on your left

hand that seems like a really stupid

simple question right but it's gonna

make sense of justice

all golfers most all amateur golfers

tend to struggle with scooping at

chicken we right now what are what have

won what is one thing that most all

amateur golfers have in common well L

tend to be right-handed

all right claims on the left side of the

ball to be right-hand player right hand

dominant and everything they do in life

or you brush your teeth with your right

hand and use your mouse on your computer

with your right hand that's just part of

how we all are we all tend to be left

brain dominant right hand dominant in

golf if you want to get into these left

hand dominant positions you have to

learn to swing using your left hand

that's the simple reality of it this is

the bottom line of Hawaii you still

struggle with golf and what to our

players have learned to do differently

than what you're doing the golf lives on

your left hand for a reason it's because

it's the only hand that you have in the

downswing when it matters with

controlling the clubface that can pull

in the downswing now you see on the

rotary swing calm website I talk a lot

about pushing versus pulling it's a very

simple physics lesson it's going to take

you along with understanding your golf

swing if you want something to be stable

controlled their impact why you see the

club head behind Tour players hands at

impact why the Klan's tend to be leading

the shaft forward at impact because they

can still pull through the hitting area

it stabilizes and controls the clubface

let's think about this in a simple way

without getting too complicated how many

of we have all walked a golf course and

used a pull cart or a push cart

depending on how you're gonna phrase it

this mean you may think about it

differently when we're done so you take

your bag you throw on this little three

wheel cart and you either pull it behind

you down the fairway or you push it what

happens when you push it down the

fairway well think back for a second you

throw your cart on they start pushing it

and it tends to kind of want to shimmy

and walk all over the place a little bit

it doesn't want to track track perfectly

straight now what happens when you turn

that cart around and you pull it behind

you think about that for a second you

didn't do anything different you didn't

put any more effort into it but as you

turn around and you pull it up the

fairway it tends to follow perfectly

straight line and when you push it it

tends to shimmy back and forth this

should be an eye-opener for you about

your golf swing right now if you're

pulling it it's always moving toward the

force of movement the center of gravity

which is you it's always move

turn it when you push something it tends

to move or it's going to move away from

the force and movement in any direction

360 possible different degrees unless

you line the force of movement which is

you perfectly with the center of gravity

of that push cart it will tend to rotate

around that center of gravity which is

why it shimmies unless you line yourself

up your force of movement perfectly in

the center of that will always shimmy

just basic physics when you pull it it

always moves towards the force of

movement so it should be an aha moment

for you when you're pushing in the golf

swing which is what 99% of the players

on the planet do because their right

hand dominant and the only thing you can

do with the right hand in the downswing

is push you're going to have the same

scenario where that if you can't light

everything up perfectly the club tends

to oscillate it doesn't tend to

consistently release because too many

forces are at work here it's very

difficult to control the club now when

you pull it this is why all Tour players

have their hand leading the club at an

impact they can still pull through

impact and then release the club the

club is now like that pull card it's

very stable you're able to keep the club

head moving toward the force and

movement moving this way instead of this

way and pushing it all of a sudden Golf

becomes a lot simpler if you're

struggling with your golf swing if

you're struggling with controlling the

ball slicing and all of these typical

things that amateur struggle with it's

almost certainly that you're tending to

over dominate with the right side which

was it everybody does so how do we get

over this the first drill that I want to

give you is going to have to help you

actually learn to use both sides

correctly so the first thing I want you

to do is you're going to take just your

left hand only and you're going to swing

just with your left hand and what I want

you to start to feel is the basic shape

and swinging motion of the golf swing

with just your left hand then I want you

to take your right hand and swing left

handed and do the exact opposite so now

what you're doing is you're actually

training both sides of your brain to

learn the pulling movement that is

critical for controlling and stabilizing

that clubface in the golf swing the

reason I want you to do it with both

hands is training both sides of the

brain but also because you're so much

more coordinated with your right hand

you do everything in your daily life

with it it's gonna help you learn and

feel the proper rotation and release of

the club much easier than what you may

do with your left hand a lot of times

when people take the left hand I'm gonna

go really slow they tend to just kind of

pull it like this and the clubface is

wide open and they don't realize it you

don't tend to do that with the right

hand it makes more sense to let the club

release I want you to feel that so that

what you're feeling in your right hand

you can begin to translate over into the

left hand that drill alone will help you

feel the proper sensations of the golf

swing with the pulling motion left hand

the second thing is there's several

videos on the website they're going to

cover this one if you struggle with

coming over the top there's a video

called guess what stop coming over the

top when you come over the top your

tendency is to take this right side it's

in a very powerful position where it can

rotate you can use your pack your front

delt these muscles that can pitch the

club this way and that's how you come

over the top now take your left hand and

try to do the same thing well now you

don't have the same muscles to get the

club to come over the top and so what

tends to happen when people are too

left-side dominant is they tend to get

stuck and come too far from the inside

for most of you amateurs out there who

struggle with the golf swing is throw

with coming over the top this is a

blessing in disguise now all of a sudden

you gonna learn how to snap hook it

which I don't want that either but as

you start to get coming too far from the

inside by using the left arm you're

gonna start to see why you're struggling

by being too right side dominant so

that's the video the second I want you

to watch how to stop coming over the top

the next one most important video on the

website is the five minutes the perfect

release drill guess what it teaches you

how to release the club with your left

hand how do you get into a perfect

impact position like a tour player and

then how to start training that left

hand how to release the club you've

probably spent your whole life releasing

with your right hand looking like this

this is all just right hand flipping

motion in there and what that's doing is

just continuing to reinforce bad habits

training this left hand is gonna take a

while you don't do anything with your

left hand most likely so if you go home

tonight start challenging yourself try

to brush your hint brush your teeth with

your left hand hopefully we won't poke

your eye out try to cut your steak with

your left arm and you're gonna realize

this is very difficult just to even use

your computer mouse with your left hand

now magnify that by a hundred because

you're going to be swinging a golf club

at 100 miles an hour trying to learn to

control it with your left hand which

you've never done and you can't even

brush your teeth left-handed yet of

course this is gonna happen overnight

the reality is it's gonna take a while

it's gonna be a struggle you've

struggled for a long time with your golf

swing now I'm just telling you the truth

about it unfortunately it's

predominantly left-handed when it comes

to controlling the clubface right hands

got a very important job to do you just

already skilled with the right hand too

too skilled with it too dominant with it

we've got to go the opposite direction

and go left hand dominant until you

learn to control that clubface and get a

nose impact position the last video I

want you to check out it's called the

lad drill la dee dee left arm downswing

drill and that video covers the basic

movements of how to use the left arm in

the downswing so if you put these three

things together plus the training both

hands to swing using the pulling motion

and releasing motion with each hand

independently it's important to take

your hand completely off the club if you

can't make this motion with just your

left hand and feel like you have any

control and imagine when you soon as you

put that right hand on there it's gonna

want to really take over and dominate

the swing so it's really important to

start really overdoing the left side

until you start coming too far from the

inside which would be a great problem

for many of you got a matures you tend

to come over the top and slice it and

all of a sudden you'll start to

understand why you've got that golf

glove in your left hand how the tour

players getting these great impact

positions and how you're gonna stop

struggling with the golf swing
