BEST GOLF INSTRUCTION: WHY THE LOCKED-IN GOLF SYSTEM IS THE MOST RELIABLE

best golf instructionThe best golf instruction available today is to lock-in a square alignment and an on line swing path of the clubface during the setup proceedings.

The worst type of instruction is what I characterize as the traditional golf method.

The traditional golf method is not the best golf instruction for a number of reasons.

If you receive golf lessons from a traditional instructor, here is what you most likely will be taught.

The traditional golf instructor’s method of instruction is to teach a student to manipulate the club in some unusual way during the swing in an attempt to square the clubface to the ball at impact..

Such instruction only goes to demonstrate the clubface was not squarely aligned at the commencement of the golf swing. Otherwise, there would be on reason to manipulate the club during the golf swing in an attempt of square the clubface to the ball at the point of impact.

Unless you lock-in a square clubface alignment during your setup proceedings, it virtually is impossible to know how to manipulate your golf club in order to square your clubface to your ball during the impact zone of your downswing.

HERE’S WHY
The very instant you form your hands on a golf club with a conventional overlapping, interlocking or baseball style of grip, your wrists will rotate your clubface to an effective open alignment regardless of how they may appear to be aligned.In addition, the very instant you assume such a grip of your golf club the swing path of your clubface will rotate to an out-to-in path across your shoulder line.

The combination of an open alignment and an out-to-in swing path of your clubface will establish a slice ball flight alignment.

The slice ball flight alignment at this point of the setup routine is not locked-in, however, because any body movement after initially gripping the club will rotate the alignment and swing path of the clubface to a different ball flight alignment.

Then, any further body movement will rotate the alignment and swing path of the clubface to yet another ball flight alignment.

Since typically there are multiple body movements after a grip is formed on a golf club until the setup proceedings are completed, the alignment and swing path of the clubface could be rotated to either a hook, slice, push, pull, push-slice or pull-hook ball flight alignment, at the completion of the setup routine.

Inasmuch as there is no way to detect the specific alignment and swing path of the clubface at the completion of the setup routine because of such multiple body movements after gripping the club, how then is an instructor going to instruct the student to manipulate the club in some specific way to square the clubface to the ball at the point of impact?

The sad truth of the matter is they don’t know how to instruct the student to manipulate the clubface during the golf swing in order to square the clubface to the ball at the point of impact, the very reason why traditional golf instruction is so unreliable.

On the other hand, if you lock-in a square alignment and an on-line swing path of the clubface during the setup proceedings, they will remain locked-in during the remainder of the setup proceedings and the golf swing.

Thus, there is no reason to manipulate the clubface during the golf swing in an attempt to square clubface to the ball at impact. It squares automatically.

This is the reason why the locked-in golf method is the best golf instruction available nowadays.
