Image of swing that does not faint in agony.

Updated: May 29, 2022

The master who has to make my club and see the swing runs a Hummingbird Sporte (HBS) shop in Oyabe, Yokosuka.

Agony had already been going on for six years.

one day I told my teacher, "I want to stop using this club."

The severe answer returned was, "You can't go back anymore."


Has a dubious theory fooled you for everyone involved in this blog? , You may have mercy on me.

Please take a closer look at the swings of many currently active professional golfers, thinking they were once deceived.

If you look closely, you can see that you are twisting your left hip first if you are right-handed.

If you look at the photo at the moment of impact, you can see that the left hip is already open, and the lower body is facing the target direction.

It seems that the light club head is turned around and adjusted well. The word "return your hand" is commonly used.

When I was young, when I was practising in the driving range, there was a moment when I felt this "I got a sense".

Then I imprinted on my head the feeling that "a strong ball can be hit by twisting the waist". It was a big mistake.

The swing method that twists only the upper body to the right has become mainstream.

Take a look at the skeleton below.

I don't think there is a function around the waist that allows it to rotate.

The top of the swing position is the upper body, where you step on both feet and forcibly twist only the upper body.

Isn't it natural to look to the right?

It is natural to use your body by using your feet and turning your pelvis to the right.

When I was young, I was able to twist only my upper body to the right due to the torsion of my condition, but since I was over 50 years old, I have come to feel that I am putting an unreasonable load on my body.

At that time, I was trying to rotate my left hip first from the top of the swing position.

If you do so, a slice ball that rotates to the right will come out, so I used to force my left foot to step on it or use the return of my hand.

After practising and practising, I finally got to hit a straight ball, but I felt that the left half of my body was abnormally tired. I also had pain.

Then, when I stayed at a hotel on a business trip, it became a habit to get a massage.

You can feel a sense of recovery immediately after receiving a massage, but it does not last long.

I went to sports manipulative treatment and received acupuncture.

Acupuncture felt very good, but it was only a temporary break.

(This is my experience, so I do not deny massage or acupuncture)

Then, I arrived at a treatment method for low back pain, which is a slow-disappearing method.

By softening the muscles between the ribs and the ribs on the side of the body, mysterious back pain disappears.

I've been doing this for about a year, and now the pain is gone.

After playing golf, I get tired from the left hip, but I feel less tired after sleeping overnight.

It is said that the brain remembers muscle pain, but I have never tried to see if it is academically correct.

Sometimes I feel something is wrong with my left hip, but I don't have any pain to live comfortably.

Let's get back to the golf swing.

The stance is to identify yourself with the ball and stretch your back with a slight knee break.

Use your foot movements to point backwards from your pelvis.

(The right side will be higher due to the forward lean)

At about the same time, fold your right elbow and lift the club.

It is the position of the top of the swing.

(At this time, it seems that you can bring the club to a reproducible position by using your right upper arm.)

In the Top of Swing, the club's weight is minimized when the club is vertical, so use this position as a guide.

The clubhead is often conscious of the downswing, but the grip is the focus. I will hit the ball with the image of pulling the grip end.

From here, I can describe the actual value of the fainting club; the weight of the clubhead works from the grip to the ball, so you can feel the feeling of being pushed by the club.

At this time, it is essential to keep the clubface closed.

On the other hand, if the clubface is turned up, the clubhead's weight will remain you to the back of the flying ball line, and it will pull you later against your will.

Sometimes your body starts to move, but you leave the grip behind.

It is the same as my left hip starting to turn first because of my false beliefs, but this is a big mistake.

If you leave the grip behind, your body starts to move; the grip will shift to the right against your body.

So instead of leaving the grip behind, I think it's just right to start with the grip instruction.

If this happens, you will be able to have a pleasant impact without being late.

At this time, the direction of the fainting club is the same, so the weight of the clubhead will help.

The right arm has an impact, with the feeling that the club pushes my right arm rather than my own will.

It is a difficult task to convey all of my experience in language.

You cannot easily convey the image in the brain to everyone.

I wouldn't have to play golf in agony for 14 years if I could do that.

I wrote in this blog is an image that my teacher repeatedly input into my brain at the beginning of my agony.

Finally, these image fragments are now connected as one integrated image.

A long time ago, my teacher went to me.

"General golfers cannot experience this swing. Mr Yamada, you are a lucky man."

When I heard this, it was "?", But I regret that the experience of agony, including this word, was irreplaceable to me.
