STRAIGHTER SHOTS BY CONTROLLING YOUR SIDE BEND

Jan 25, 2022
Hi my name is Chris Ryan and welcome to the absolutely stunning Val de Lobo golf course here in Portugal. start this video i just want to say thank you to Val de l'eau before allowing me access to the golf course he wants to create some videos hopefully to help him out so today's video is all about Club Hough and talks a little bit about how far you

bend

from the target so that's what we call

side

tilt and how it can influence club path so club path is very simple the direction the club takes when it hits the golf ball we only have three options , the golf club is going to travel to the left of

your

target, to the right of

your

target, or close to your target now, if we're looking at straight

shots

, your path should be almost straight if you're a golfer struggling to hit straight

shots

. you're a golf ball cutter or maybe you hit hook shots, chances are your path is too far from a straight line either too right or too left and let's see which

side

Bend or what role does Side Bend play in this trail so let's talk about Side Bend initially Side Bend would be me doing this move here so you can see my back shoulder move under my front shoulder now on top of the golf, so we're not going to go into this in too much detail here, but at the top of the golf thing I have a side

bend

to my left that's toward the golf ball, so I side-bend to my left now , when I hit impact I flex laterally to my right and this is correct so the top of the golf swing, we flex to the left and at impact we flex to the right so we need to go from one to another if we are bent ha Go left on top and right to hit. we need to connect the dots we almost need to go from one to the other and that's what we're going to talk about so if I'm a golfer who's a cutter I hit the ball from left to right I hit the ball I hit those weak shots what I might find is that the golfer is when i get to the top i lean to the left and when i start my golf swing i keep that side it bends too much so you can see the face on the camera.

I'm still bending to the left. What I almost probably do now is try to add the curve on the right hand side, but you can see what that's going to do to me. way is going to make that way way through the golf ball and I'm almost going to feel like I'm going back and my weight is going to end up on my back leg, so it's very, very common to see golfers who struggle with those cuts. the shots feel like they are in front of him like this and then back to the side bending too late the path is often left off target then we have the golfer who hits the hook shots these golfers very often from the top will add the side bend too soon so again you can immediately see how this trail shoulder gets much lower than t he carries the shoulder and from below the line of sight he is dropping the club well behind him me from here I'm going to get very, very stuck I'm going to find my body often stops my path is going to be very to the right that's what's causing me to hit those hooks and maybe those shots pushed to the right these golfers are going to have trouble with the shot are going to have trouble actually hitting the ball with a quick crisp click should say we're going to find that ball the flight is difficult for the golfer to control that he hits, even though he has the side curve too early, he's going to hit very high shots.

We're really looking to get a nice combination of from the top with side bends to the left but we're trying to transition nice until we're side bending to the right a really good way to get a feel for it's ER practice both ends like this which takes a golf club and thinks about how it would feel to keep this side curve to the left, then get an idea of ​​how it would feel to add too much side curve too soon, then try to find something that matches the two if we can get a good combination from the transition from the left-hand curve to the right-hand curve we're going to get a golf swing that won't help you.

I know it looks good. We get that nice visual trace of the golf club from top to bottom to impact which will help you. with your neutral path, I hope it makes sense. I'm going to try and try to hit the 16th hole. I say it looks absolutely perfect. a long one I have a 5 iron here and I think I need it all. I can account for about 215 yards, so I'm going to try to think about my sideburns and hopefully get it on that green just to the right, in the middle of the green, but all those issues will stay.
