Full Transcript - In this video I'm going to share with you golf's only secret and I so so wish I'd have been taught this when I was an amateur golf it would have saved me years of pain trying to figure it out now no matter what shot you're playing whether you find yourself dribbling it along the ground topping the ball or slicing it over to the right or hooking it over to the left to understand how to cure this you need to appreciate exactly what is happening to the golf club at the moment of impact okay you I don't care what your swing looks like okay there's so many weird wonderful things on tour but you need to understand precisely what the club is doing at impact to solve all of your problems but here's a secret that club is traveling too fast so where the secret lies is is in your ability to read the ball fly understanding what the ball flight is doing and watching the ball flight will give you everything you need to know to cure your top your slice your hook and today what I'm going to do is I'm going to show you exactly how you can start doing that I'm going to give you a simple demonstration I'm going to hit Sean this is reason why I'm professional I'm going to hit a shot for you and show you exactly what I mean that ball look watch this has gone left a Target and you can see it curving over there right I'm going to show you now I know what that club has done at impact without any numbers on the screen the path for that club is out to win okay swung across the line of the golf ball so we're gonna see a minus path number on trackman the club face is close to that path okay I know this so the club face will face the path will also be a minus number but you don't need trackman you need to know I've just know there I can see it I see the ball flights give me all my answers have a look at this I'm going to go into the trackman here and I'm going to look at club path there's the minus number face to path there we go put it back on screen we both have minus numbers how did I know that without going into the system the ball flight so let's go into now how you can start learning this yourself because now I know that that club face is closed I know the path was slightly left I've now got the tools to start working on improving my swing let's start with you now if you're hitting a beautiful stretch shot that is well struck from that ball flight I don't care what your swing looks like doesn't matter I know that you have perfectly done this your Club has ACT beautifully back on an arc here the club has arrived perfectly square that basically means the face now is at 90 degrees to the Target line your Club is then act beautifully back around very much similar to like a swing door okay where you've caught it absolutely at the right time with a perfectly Square Face but if you're not hitting it straight and you're not striking it well the great thing is you can only be doing a few things wrong either your club path is too far to the right all too far to the left your Club face is either aiming too far to the left or your Club face is aiming too far to the right or finally your Club attack angle you're attacking either too steep on the ball or Too Shall are you hitting up on it too much okay so what we've got to figure out right now is is in the shots that you're hitting which or what are you doing wrong if we can figure those out you're going to have now a beautiful recipe that's going to solve all of your golfing problems so to make things easier let's divide the two shots into two families balls that set off to the right of Target and balls that's it off to the left of Target now if your ball sets off to the right of Target and flies straight to the right here's what I know you're doing you are catching the ball very early on the act before it's had a chance to straighten up you're catching the ball early on the arc the club face is completely Square to the path but aiming to the right of Target this will give you a straight shot out to the right now if you aren't hit the ball straight through right but you're actually hitting it right and then it's curving to the right here's what you're doing differently same thing you're catching it too early on the app before it's got a chance to come back around to straight but this time your Club face is aiming right of the path you're swinging on okay open and this is giving you the kind of the curvature that's going right and then continues to go right now if you're hooking the golf ball same principle the ball sets off to the right and you're hooking it hooks and curves over to the left here's what you're doing same principle you again catching the ball early on the app before it's got a chance to straighten up but this time the club face is closed to the path that it's on then this is going to give you a ball that sets off to the right and flies quite low and hooks over to the left and so it curves over to the left hand side so let me know in the comments if this is your family right now the other family is the ball that sets off left of Target now let me know in the comments if this is you this time you catch the bot the ball sets off straight to the left okay fly straight this time you're catching the ball very late on the out so rather than catching it early or Perfect You're Now catching the ball late the club face is completely Square to the path and flies dead straight if your ball flies that sets off left but now curves to the left okay we call this a pull hook your Club face now is close to the path but you're still late okay you're still swinging this way if you slice the golf ball and the ball actually starts off left and then curves over this way again you're catching the ball not early not perfect but late on the arc what you're doing now is you're catching it late on the ark but this time your Club face is open to the path it's heading on and this is giving you your curvature so again let me know in the comments which one of them do you think you will shock about some Solutions in a second all right so I know at first glance all of that can seem very detailed sometimes maybe even a bit complex but if you take the time to learn it it will give you all the necessary tools to make significant progress really really quickly I wish I'd have done this it would save me years of practice and I gave this to a recent student let me give you an example this the student came to me and he was hitting the ball lower on the ground and to the right hand side and the first thing you said oh Danny I'm I'm hitting bad shots I've lost my golf swing well imagine it with that thought press has he got any opportunity of improving no and he probably would go down on my road of various different YouTube videos to try and solve what he doesn't really know what solving yeah so I said to him if the ball goes to the right now I'm asking you this where is he striking the golf ball too early on the ark isn't he early not on time so the club parties heading where to the right hand side where's the club faces if it's going straight to the right it's Square to that patch path now we haven't covered this yet so I'll bring it up now he was thinning the ball if you thin the ball along the ground you are hitting up so you are catching the ball on the way up as opposed to on the way down now once he knew this he now had a very simple solution he needed to swing more down on the golf ball and more left swing more left and that's all he did he simply went oh so I've got to swing more down no not quite I'll keep going there you go now you hang down now more left but Danny that feels I'm going here where left I said yeah just keep going and what happened is do you think he's turned his uh the Striking prove like instantly not but what he did is it went more and more left it got Higher and Higher and before you know as he kept making more and more alterations to cure it it got better and better and better until we started to hit it beautifully straight why because he read the ball flight and worked back from there in a very very simple way so you're going to see me in action in a second uh just give me a very very quick lesson to my videographer Leah when I go through it's the exact process but before I do let's just discuss strike so strike the main influence on strike is is when in the downswing do you strike the golf ball so the angle of attack now with irons we want to strike the ball then the ground so we catch the ball before the club arrives at the bottom of its Arc with balls off a tee like a driver we want to catch the ball just after the low point of the axle we catch it slightly on the way up so what can you see in the ball flight that will tell you exactly what you're doing so let's start with if you are doing excessive of this if you are coming down too steeply on it okay this is what you're going to see you're going to see a ball flight that travels very very low if you strike the ball first you're also going to see if you find that you top the golf ball but the top also goes left this is another sign that you're coming steep on the golf course if it's top and the ball generally goes left the other thing is this if you catch the ground behind the golf ball and the divot is quite big this is another sign that you've come steeply into the golf ball check that out which one are you if on the other hand you're not coming steep but you're too shallow you're hitting up on it too much you're going to see a ball like that thins along the ground it's going to go and the thins tend to go either straight or to the right of Target along the ground okay that's similar to the student that I was talking to about earlier when you do strike a golf ball you probably won't strike it with much of a divot and the ball will travel super super high this is again is another indication that your impact is very shallow you're not catching on the way down but slightly on the way up and finally you could catch the ground behind the golf ball but your divot is not deep it's shallow because you're not digging into the ground behind you're catching the ground behind the golf ball and Swinging up okay so this is the things that you need to look at if you are struggling with your ball striking so I thought would be a really great idea now would be to bring Leo in he's my videographer who's a beginner golfer and I want you to imagine he's just stepped up on the driving Ridge okay and he starts to hit some shots and what we're going to do we're going to see if we can learn from the ball flight I haven't put any figures on here we're going to learn from the buffer and see what Leo could do to make real progress in his game simply by viewing this okay all right let's have a look

okay so yeah but this is a real complex so Leah you have just there skied the ball all right so I want you to know this is a real common problem right so that tends to happen with me okay right what we're going to see here this brand spanking new driver you're going to see and this is logic you're going to see a little Mark on top of the driver okay now what does this mean if the ball goes straight up in the air that I know for a fact that you have done what come down on that golf ball and this has created the shot that's going to Sky up in the air yeah okay so what we've got to do is it wouldn't alter that to start we won't do anything initially because it's just one shot but if that started to become a pattern then we would do things to kind of help you shallow out the the actual impact as opposed to come down steep on the shot all right

but no pause that pause pause right so that there yeah was perfect because you've just hit a Top Shot now these are two completely different shots out there but you know what they're exactly the same swing okay because what you've done is is you have there come down on top of the golf ball right the difference is is you come down on top of it which is hit the top of the ball as a it's the same thing you just miss tied it with the same principle all right so against them again so all these things here if you go back to the uh what we've just talked about in terms of ball flight they're going to give you all the answers all right so what do you need to do based on what we've just seen there what is the answer to start to make progress with your driver what do you need what needs to happen through the impact area that you're not doing right now come up exactly fantastic so think about what you need to do with the way you set up to this golf ball that's going to help you hit um commercial okay yeah okay

how's that feel a lot better yeah makes sense yeah yeah so slightly better sound wasn't it yeah yeah so if you were to persist with this start to work on this and then keep reading the ball flight AS and when yeah then you're going to start to make those tiny little adjustments because you're now in control yeah so clearly all of this is complicated until you understand both light and that is the difference between myself as a professional and maybe Leah as an amateur is I can quickly die I know what's happening why because I've learned what I've shared in this video so please please please go and learn it once you do right once you've got the idea if you are in the slice family please look at this video right here if you are struggling with your ball striking go to this video right here these complements it absolutely amazingly well hope you enjoy this video give it a thumbs up if you did and of course look join the channel free have a great have a great golfing week cheers
