Thanks a lot Mr. Adam.
Early bird gets the birdie….
Good drills! Thanks!
your best one
Great Devoe Cadillac of Naples flew 20 of us down put us up in the Ritz to play the Local Port Royal tennis players in about 1986. Now Im playing golf and you helping me a lot, are the best Thanks..
Hey Adam! Just want you to know that I picked up your free solid strike course and it really helped me. Great lessons on that course. Thank you for all your help!
Great video , thanks Adam. I have too much side shift with my hips on the downswing , instead of a nice hip rotation and it causes me to get stuck sometimes on the downswing and drop it too much on the inside .. HELP!!
I've always heard golfers need "forward shaft lean" at impact, but I've never understood HOW to do it correctly until now. You've explained it wonderfully in simple terms, and your Solid Strike video course is awesome:)
Great instructional video. Very complete and helpful.
Great video thanks adam
I notice a reverse "C" position is prevalent in the impact to follow through, great video Adam love the content Could you do a swing analysis of Tommy Fleetwood soon please As I love his effortless swing👍
Compression is a funny topic that lots of people misunderstand. You want to apply pressure simply because that adds more energy to the shot but you don't actually want to compress a ball. That's energy being wasted on deformation of the ball which produces heat as well. That's energy you've put into the shot that isn't going into moving the ball forward. Ideally you would still apply as much pressure (= add more energy) at impact as you could, but do it with a ball that's so hard it doesn't change shape at all. It wouldn't feel very pleasant – hard as a rock, but don't make the mistake of thinking that compressing a ball is what propels it. Putting energy into it is what propels it. You don't want to lose any of that energy so the softer your ball is compared to your swing speed, the more it compresses, the shorter it will go. The effect of dimple design on distance is much greater, but it's still true.
Meanwhile, Wilson pride themselves on making the world's softest, easiest to compress golf balls, just to one up all the other manufacturers jumping on the soft compression marketing bandwagon. Good for their sales, not good for golfers regardless of swing speed, if you understand a little physics.
If you've ever played tennis you probably know that old tennis balls lose air pressure over time, making them softer. An old ball will hardly bounce up off the playing surface because too much energy is being wasted on excessive deformation of the ball. It's just that if tennis balls were harder/more solid, everyone would get tennis elbow, and a ball to the face or groin would become a real problem.
When I was younger I was given advice like "hit into a firm left side" which is true, but your advice has been much more detailed and helpful to understand the correct impact position. One thing I would say is please give as many drills as you can. They are very helpful for committing good swing habits to muscle memory. Hoping to get down to a single digit handicap again after quitting the game for 25 years (family, career, etc.). I am enjoying both your free and paid instruction videos. Thank you!
Just joined Scratch Golf Academy yesterday and love the content so far. The final drill in this video is tremendously helpful – thanks, Adam. Any advice/content on applying impact position with the driver? I'm either getting too much extension or something isn't right as the majority of my shots are off the heel. Thanks, again!
VERY well done! Great drill that I might use tonight
great video tips but sometime your closed caption covers the point of impact
I had a lesson with Adam last March and this is basically what we covered. I was asking him how to "drive" the ball better (meaning power). One issue was lack of shaft lean. In the last segment where Adam hits it, he told me to imagine driving a nail into a piece of wood. If you lean the club correctly, striking the ball feels very much like that. In fact, for the drill, he said to just take the club back 1/3 of the way and only let it go 1/3 past vertical. It helped quite a bit andI can hit the ball 150+ yards easily with that simple 1/3 swing. Adam is such a great teacher.
I’ve seen a lot of golfers press slightly forward before they start their backswing but when they press they don’t move their lower body. Is this slight press before beginning the backswing something you recommend? Thanks for your videos, I always come here first before looking for advice elsewhere.
Thanks Adam, more great content 🙂
Great video and very helpful. You communicate this concept very well. Thank you.
Tried this out in the course the other day becasue I had seen the pro at the club doing it, so much more accurate and hitting contact, Thanks for the Video Adam!
Adam,Great explanation of the relationship between club head and forward hand and great drill to "feel" the forward shaft "lean" at impact. I have been watching you videos for a little while now and my ball striking has improved tremendously. Thanks
Thanks for the great lesson. Can you give us lesson on how to consistently hit the sweet spot? Having trouble with hitting the toe or heel.
Thank you Adam! Like always, a great video with a good , easy drill to practice. I can see you are really passionate about the game as your body languge actually make a putting motion when you say the word "put" it all in to a practice" 🙂 I really appreciate all of the good content and help. Best regards!
Adam I've found your teachings tremendously helpful! I recently became a lifetime member and you reviewed my swing and prescribed this same preset drill to feel the hands ahead at impact. I've done everything in the video above to get the feeling, I can get hands ahead on small shots (where the ball almost goes as far as my full swing), but when I swing full the old instincts kick in and I can't hold lag or get my hands ahead at impact for anything! Even with a lot of conscious effort. Is there anything else you would recommend?
RE: the title of this vedeo – – Golf Swing (IMPACT POSITION) ''Perceuses'' pour une précision mortelle!. Drill may be translated by perceuses (to bore holes; understand electric drill)) or exercises/répétitions (training or learning drills). As well, deadly precision is used to mean ''very accurate precision; it should be translated by précision accrue (increased).
Nice video of young Rory back in his chubby days! No offence, I'm feeling a little chubby myself right now, lol
I really like the tips on what to look for when you're filming your own swing from your phone. If you had any more tips on that, I'd definitely like to hear them!
Great videos Adam. You demonstrate a high level of hand-eye coordination (bouncing a ball on your club). I cannot do that and I suspect most average golfers cannot. That disadvantage plays a lot into the outcome of our play. Can hand-eye coordination be learned- improved.?
Good video homie …
Outstanding, thank you Adam!
Hurry up guys. I want to 200k subscriber mark. 👍To the best of best channel. Love his drills.
Are there any negatives to setting up with the hands in front of club head (delofting). How come players don’t lineup with that angle?
very good content
Wow is that blurry
Another excellent video. Your pre shot drill with the alignment stick is excellent, it is something that I often struggle with, but I will work on your drills and then see the improvement. Charles
This past winter my wife Virginia, who has great golf genes, gave me my all time favourite Christmas present, a lesson with Adam. The great thing about that lesson was that I left with a single concrete idea that improved the quality of my ball striking immediately, without filling my head with technical ideas. A classy man and a brilliant teacher.
Great drill!!! Thank You!!
I got to see your Youtube ad before this video (thumbed up it), trippy.
제목은 한국말인데 자막은 없네 그렇게 조회수 올리고싶냐? 개자슥아
Fantastic drill! Not only did it help with shaft lean, it kept me more aware of my hip rotation relative to where my hands should be. I will be doing this drill much more frequently.
골프를 겁나 어렵게 만드는 구만
but how to really get there is more than a "will" it is far more complicated and "illogic" than mainstream instruction. Thats the secret of golf
Great simple explanation of concept and drills. I love this video. Adam? Could you either explain how 'supination' or left wrist bow applies along with the shallow, downward swing at impact. I understand that it will deloft the club but I also suspect that solid contact as more to do with the compression through downward swing than it does with a delofted clubface. Kevin
