In our golf swing video, Swail, while adding some fresh thinking of its own, joins Ben, Bobby, Jack and Tiger in beating the drum for snap, supple and pull. People who are most comfortable when they have things under control tend to have an extra challenge in learning how to hit a golf ball. Knowing where the ‘club’head is feels comfortable to them. But most good golfers have only a general idea where the whiphead is during the lift ‘n coil, and do not know where the whiphead is once the flail gets going.

Trying to keep the ‘club’head under control tenses some mid/upper-torso and arm muscles. If you’re a control personality, recognize that and aggressively talk yourself into loosening up when you have a golf whip in your hands--let it rip. If you’re on the eighteenth tee of a potentially career round, don’t bear down. Don’t think tense, control, power. Think supple, fluid, quick and whip. Secondly, feeling rushed or anxious tends to create tension and often a failure to let the thighs and hips lead the way. The pectoral and forearm muscles force the issue, firing simultaneously with the thigh and hip muscles, and “over the top” is the result. Do your best to chill in advance of stepping onto the first tee. To repeat: Jim McLean in The Eight-Step Swing: “....to gain control of your shots, you will need to give up control of your swing.”
Golf swing video provides an excellent learning tool. SWAIL's swing video may be the best ever produced. A one-of-a-kind camera that can capture up to 1000 frames per second was escorted from Hollywood to our production site. The SWAIL DVD contains a 'Treasury' of a perfect swing caught from seven camera angles, and playable at three different speeds: normal, Slo-Mo, and Super Slo Mo.

With golf swing tips and video from Swail, your game will improve in far less time. Ben, Bobby, Jack and Tiger are credible, intelligent, and articulate sources. With the exception of Tiger, their thinking has been in circulation for decades. Ask your amateur buddies whether they have any sense of snapping their hips as fast as they can. And ask them whether they are really relaxed at address and whether they are supple throughout the motion of hitting the ball. Ask whether they initiate their flails with a pull of some hip muscles that results in their torsos and heads lowering toward the ground. If their answers are honest, probably you'll get unequivocal answers of 'no' from just about all of them.
Swail believes the reason is that the snap of the hips isn't readily seen, nor is it emphasized sufficiently in golf instruction. And it sure doesn't fit in something that 'looks' like a swing, is called a 'swing', and the concomitant emphasis on 'rhythm'. Similarly, suppleness isn't emphasized sufficiently in golf instruction. And it is counter-intuitive to an understandable desire to be in control of the ‘club’. Also pushing with the right calf intuitively seems so right. Your buddies may have read and heard some of the words, but the words jibe neither with what they see, nor with what they hear in instruction, nor with their intuition. So, understandably yet still curiously, they end up dismissing the best analysis and advice available. But they stay perplexed, wondering why they don't get it. Devilish predicament.
