Aim & Alignment Series
The Golfers Mind
Discover one of the reasons most golf lessons are a complete waste of time and money
Golf Mind Shop Launches it’s first ebook in the series on Golf Swing "Must Haves"
Our sister site Go Mental Golf is carrying this book. You can get there from the link at the bottom of this article.
The Golf Mind Shop has made available to the Internet a beautifully written training ebook on the Golf Hold or Grip. There is everything you ever needed to know about the Grip (or Hold) in this work and for the vast majority of golfers there are some very interesting things to discover that you didn't know.
The full Golf Fundamental series from Golf Mind Shop is in the acronym G R A S P A B B
GRASP your A and BB's. It's not necessarily in order but the acronym works as a reminder of the full range of fundamentals that any golfer must have, before attempting to change swing mechanics.
G Grip -
R Routine -
A Alignment -
S Stance -
P Posture -
A Aim -
B Balance -
B Ball Pos -
It is only when these fundamentals are in place and working that a golfer should begin to look at swing changes. Understanding and accepting the fact that if just one of the Swing Foundation Stones (the fundamentals) is incorrect, then swing mechanics will change to accommodate the flaw, they have to.
So we can say that working on swing mechanics and attempting to build a mechanically sound move in order to propel the ball to a target is a waste of time if the Fundamentals are wrong. Let’s say that again because there is a pretty strong statement about to follow. Working swing mechanics is a waste of time unless you are fundamentally sound – BEFORE YOU SWING!
Here’s the strong statement. Virtually ALL golfers have a poor grasp (knowledge and ability to implement) of 1 or more of the fundamentals and the majority of lessons on swing mechanics are a complete waste of time and money in the long run.
Lets give you an example, an obvious one, of how working on swing mechanics is wasted if just ONE fundamental is out.
Your body works and will be able to propel the ball to a target best when the “machine”
(your body) is aligned to the target properly. That is: The minimum alignment checks
of Toes, Knees, Hips and shoulders should all be parallel to the ball to target line.
So classically we would describe train tracks. The ball sits on one track and at the end of that track is the target. The properly aligned golfer stands on the other track and the aforementioned body parts are all parallel to the train tracks.
With this set-
Now imagine a right handed golfer who is aligned incorrectly. For the purpose of this example let’s say they are aimed significantly to the right (SHUT) of target. The golfer can no longer swing in the same fashion as the golfer who is aligned correctly because if it does the ball will go right. The body must compensate for this faulty alignment and will attempt to “PULL” the ball back left at the target thus changing the desired swing mechanics (presuming they are trying to get an “in to out” swing path).
This is an obvious example but there are many more which are no where near as obvious but just as damaging in the short and long term. Here is the good news now. The better your fundamentals the more your swing will begin to naturally change and improve.
With this in mind the Golf Mind Shop is bringing out the full GRASP you’re A and BB’s series this year. The first on Grip is now available. Discover some things you didn’t know about the golf grip and check your own Golf on the club to begin your journey to a better game.
