This series is specifically about facilitating the engage- ment of a kinetic chain. Throwing an object, throwing a punch, etc., is a timed sequence of movements – or in other words: a kinetic chain. The proper sequence is demonstrated in extremis by Bryson DeChambreau. ”I jump up, and then I pull”.
A Centered And Catapulting Throw
To remove the restriction of the lower body in the back- swing do the feet-together drill; this is really important. Place your feet next to each other, the arches touching, forming a single ‘suction cup’; keep your knees together, no ‘Elvis Presley’. Feel very solid contact with the ground, feel ’glued’ to the ground with your feet. Then heave your arm club unit towards the trail side. Immediately to keep balance your rear will swivel into the opposite direction, ‘facing’ the target. If not, you will lose your balance.
Rise And Heave, Fall And Throw
Imagine heaving an axe and letting it fall into the stem of a tree. Upon heaving the axe back you will notice that your knees stay above your feet and the rear will immediately move in the opposite direction. Both legs will extend, you will rise up, and your head will go up – ”I jump up”. Then you let the axe fall and the movements will reverse. When you let the axe fall, you go to the ground, the head goes down, the knees flex – ”I pull”. Also see: the axe drill. Nothing about this needs to be learned. But it needs to be allowed to happen in a proper golf swing.
THE MASTERS IS NEXT WEEK!! And the defending champion has a very enviable skill that so many of us would love to acquire: HOW TO FORGET THAT BAD SHOT AND MOVE ON WITH POSITIVITY AND CONFIDENCE!! The subject comes up often as to how the number 1 player in the world, Dustin Johnson, has the uncanny ability to forget bad shots immediately like water off a duck’s back, to allow him to bounce back with barrages of Birdies to keep his chances of winning very much alive.
This is an incredibly important skill to acquire and it is important to understand the science behind it to help with this difficult task. A couple of real experts in this field from the University of Nevada in Las Vegas and the University of Southern California, Gabriele Wulf and Rebecca Lewthwaite, have some terrific info on motor skill learning at this website: Gabriele Wulf Podcast

Talk about a fun thing to practice!! To have the permission to top the ball is very liberating because you are actually trying to miss the shot and you will realize you can be very precise doing it mainly because you don’t care how bad you top it! The great news is that you can be equally as adept at hitting the ball solidly and smoking your irons pure like Colin Morikawa!
