The Aiming Point Concept

The Aiming Point Concept in golf Today we’ll dig into the Aiming Point concept that may sound familiar to the readers of The Golfing Machine.

Doug, reader of this blog, asked for some clarification about its meaning and purpose.
He read about that in the Bobby Clampett’s book (The Impact Zone) and, as mentioned earlier, it is taking its roots in the Golfing Machine book from Homer Kelley.

The 4 Barrel Hit: Swinging AND Hitting

The Four Barrel Hit: Hitting AND SwingingHi all, it’s been a while since my last post.

Due to my Achilles tendon injury and a mass of considerable professional work I have been taken away from the game and took huge delays in the plans I have for the site.

But the wait is over and we start again with a very popular topic:

There has always been a fight between Hitting and Swinging aficionados: On the paper, these are two mutually exclusive ways to propel a golf club so in theory you have to choose either to Hit or to Swing.

Hitting vs Swinging – Part 3 – Hitting

The Eye of the HitterContinuing our series on Hitting vs Swinging, let’s now review the Hitting Stroke.

The hitting action is a bit the dark side of the moon when it comes to golf instruction. It seems that a vast majority of golf instructors (with the exception of The Golfing Machine Instructors of course) are simply unaware of its existence and mainly teach golf the "Swinging way".

This is very unfortunate because it is a very efficient way to strike the golf ball and in my opinion a very interesting alternative for strong or less flexible players.

Hitting vs Swinging – Part 2 – The Swing

Hitting vs SwingingContinuing our series on Hitting vs Swinging, let’s now explore the Swinging Procedure.

In this article I’ll try to cover the leading principles of the Swing and explain what you should feel to reproduce the correct motion.

Whirl something tied to a rope and you generate centrifugal force. That is simple and the very same principle is the essence of the Swinging Procedure.

However, in a Golf Swing you do not swing a rope, but rather a flail where the hinge pin is the left wrist.

Focus on pressure points to feel Lag

Pressure points in your handsYou may have played the game for a long time and never heard of them…

If so, I urge you to read this!!!
Pressure points could improve your game forever and simplify a lot of things in your swing by focusing your mind on feel rather than technique.  As a bonus, once you learn to rely on your pressure points, the game of Golf becomes more of a sensation than a mechanical cheklist!

Drag the wet mop!

Drag your wet mop!One of my favorite tip to help you feel the Lag is to Drag the Wet Mop!

It may sound funny but the best way to discover and understand the Lag is to throw away any technical thought. Instead you must focus on feel and feel only. You’ll discover that feelings come from the hands. This is why it’s extremely important that you pay a lot of attention in what is happening in your hands (in the Golfing Machine’s terminology it is called "Mind in the hands"). During the swing, you must focus on their position and seek a feeling of pressure and heaviness.

Now, what kind of feel do you have to look for?
