Want to add power to your #golfswing ? Of course you do! . Instead of fluffy #golf'ish exercises like attaching a bar to a cable machine and doing more harm than good, grab a med ball and throw it against a wall. . 🔑's 2 Success . 1️⃣Rotate your thoracic spine away from the wall keeping the ball in line with your chest just short of the point where you will recoil to throw the ball. You will simultaneously load your trail hip (internal hip rotation). . 2️⃣ In this video, I'm hooking my lead foot around my trail leg, creating a pause and then stepping forward. Before performing this advanced version, I want you to own the previous progression by keeping the front foot planted and flared out 15-30 degrees. . 3️⃣When you rotate towards the wall be sure to rotate from the hips so they also end up facing the wall, or pointing towards your target. Don't keep your hips still as this creates shear force on the lumbar spine, very similar to what happens in the golf swing - due to a lack of mobility in the hips and thoracic spine or poor stability at another joint down the chain - leading to lower back pain. . 4️⃣Perform 3-5 reps per side with at least 60 seconds rest between sets. Less is more, meaning if you perform more than the recommended reps you won't be able to keep up the same power and velocity with each throw. ...

1921: 19 year-old Bobby Jones infamously picks up out of a sand trap during the Open Championship On this day, In 1921 Jock Hutchison won the Open Championship at St. Andrews in Scotland. He won by playing through a tough playoff against amateur, Roger Wethered in a 36 hole playoff. There was another Amateur at St. Andrews who didn’t receive the same fortune that Wethered had. In the third round of the 1921 Open Championship, Amateur king Bobby Jones famously found the bunker on the 11th hole. He took four shots to get out and out of anger proceeded to pick up & tear up his scorecard. This would be the 1st time Jones played the Old Course at St. Andrews and even was the low amateur after 36 holes before this blunder. The young Jones would have his revenge though, as he would win the Grand Slam nine years later. Hutchison, a native of St. Andrews was also an American citizen, so technically he was the first golfer to hold American citizenship to win The Open. Just a year later, there were no doubts as Walter Hagen won the 1922 Open Championship over Jim Barnes & George Duncan. The American push for the Claret Jug The 1921 Open Championship included an an unusually large number of U.S.-based player entries following a funding-raising campaign by an American golf magazine. On September 27, 1920 Golf Illustrated wrote a letter to the Professional Golfers’ Association of America with a suggestion that ...
This is a perfect example of why the Pure process is crucial to the consistency of your golf game. The first video is a club that has not been Pure'd, and there is a clear oscillation vertically and horizontally. This creates inconsistency in how the club is delivered each time. The second video is of a club that has been Pure'd, and you can see there is very limited oscillation. The club stays very vertical and stable until the end when speed is lost. This allows for a more consistent bend profile and a more consistent strike each time it is swung ⛳ - - #custom#fit#build#golf#golfer#golflife#pga#getfitgetlow#mgadvatage#treatyourself#knowledge#pure#sstpure#consistent
