Clay - can you explain what the grip pressure is supposed to be for the left hand/forearm in the downswing. I am practicing the above but am finding i have to grip it hard with the left to keep from flipping/early extending the club.

I would try to grip as lightly as possible without the club flying out of my hand. Also, try to deliver the club with the badge on your left hand glove facing the target. Best of luck! Nate | TSG Instructor

Take a drink every time he says "Like the pros do." Gotta question though. Was that first shot a draw or a fade? It went to the right of initial path, but in the 2nd shot he called a draw also, that went to the left. Edit: Nice tips though. Will give it a go next practice round.

MAN! I just got back from trying these 3 moves and I won't even tell you how far, well-flighted and straight I consistently hit my PW because you wouldn't believe me (it was LONGER than ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY (yes >170) YARDS and less than 180 EFFORTLESSLY! I am not bragging or boasting, just letting you and everybody else know that YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND TALKING ABOUT! If ANYONE wants to learn HOW to hit and compress a golf ball........THIS IS THE PLACE! Thanks Clay! You are the BEST INSTRUCTOR I have ever encountered, in person or online! Guys,(and Ladies), stop wasting your time, money and effort! This guy is "DA Man!" and this was not solicited. Just sent in thankfulness and appreciation for what he does better than ANYBODY!

Like many of us, I have watched countless videos to try and better my golf game. This video has by far been the most helpful I have found -- I just played my first round of the year and I didn't lose a single ball -- a huge win in my book. Last year I would lose at least 2 or 3 balls a game due to a slice and not really having a swing routine or plan. Clay, you're the man. Thanks for all you do.

I get it! But doing it consistently is the problem LOL. My question is how does this motion work with the "wood chopping" feel. That is a little bit of an arm feel, catching the club up with my fast hips and this one is all body moving the club through the shot, lagging the arms more behind?

2 oy oldin
Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard
Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard

It should be hips firing first, then shoulders and then the arms follow. This applies even with the "wood chopping" feel - that is how you release the lag you've created. Best of luck! Nate | TSG Instructor

All of this information is fantastic, but the only problem is you need to sequence all of these things in about 1/4 of a second without thinking about it!! I am trying to practice all of this sequencing very SLOWLY.....and video tape myself with a component on my camera which will show my swing in SLOW MOTION. It is a very arduous process. I am trying to unlearn 25 years of ingrained errors in my swing. No teaching pro can tell you what you are doing wrong in a swing that takes 1/4 of a second to complete unless they video tape you and review it with you in SLOW MOTION.

You're doing all of the right things to ingrain this. Go slow with each component of the swing until you have the whole thing pieced together and then do it slowly while gradually building speed. Then add a ball and go slow until you're doing it right and then build speed from there. Keep working hard and the results will follow. Best of luck! Nate | TSG Instructor

After the 3 month lockdown - I’d frustratingly lost it! What I’ve learned from watching you swing, Clay is that your arms appear to be like dead weights in your swing, whereas I was very aware that mine weren’t loose and ‘dead’ (for want of a better term). I’ve been smashing them today! Tension is bad!

I always like when you have videos posted, even when sometimes they don't seem to help me too much, because most of the time I do pick up some useful tips. But just a side question here and this is something I noticed on the last video you did with this backdrop screen. Why does it seem the ball just totally disappears when you make contact? I can hear the club face making contact and the thump of it hitting the screen but I can not see the screen move at all from the impact and there is no ball bouncing back off of the screen? It is almost like you are really hitting a virtual ball but yet the balls on the floor are real since you are rolling them around and into position. And it is a little mind blowing to my 63 year old brain. What kind of special effects are going on here?

2 oy oldin
Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard
Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard

It's not a hologram per se. The impact screen that Clay hits the ball into has the software projection from the launch monitor. I don't know the exact details, but they take that shot and insert into the video so it's bigger, clearer and at a better angle than what you would see from the actual projection on the impact screen. Hope that makes sense.

Top Gun is correct. You're seeing a projected image into the video that's not really there. The ball is making contact with the impact screen which is obscured by the projection. Play well! Nate | TSG Instructor

Hi Clay! In some of your videos i see your right hand ( fingers) coming off the grip just before and in your finish position. What causes this? I've got the same issue , see my righthand thump slipping of the grip. Thanks for your anwer! Greetings from Germany! 🤗

Lol my drives are the best they've ever been but I can't hit my irons like this. I'm constantly hitting them fat. I used to be a sweeper and never take divots. I'm finding that's because l never had the tilt behind the ball stance was more straight up n down.

I would try to focus on the front of the ball and if that's not enough to strike them cleanly, keep moving your focus a little more forward until you're there. Best of luck! Nate | TSG Instructor

Thanks for another great video. A couple of videos ago with a driver you talked about the importance of releaseing through impact. This video talked morei in the third point about holding the right wrist angle through contact. Is that a difference between driver and iron? So with an iron you almost want to hold off release (and just let it happen without thinking) and with a driver you want to feel the release happening more?

2 oy oldin

@Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard I was thinking the same as Martin... I saw the same video and the only problem I have with your demonstration here, is you always hold off the release when showing in slow motion.. you make it look more like a Cricket bat swing and you don't show the release that happens in real life. If you were to swing through the way you show in slow motion, the ball would shoot off to the right..

2 oy oldin
Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard
Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard

The swing is the same with all full swings/shots. The difference with the driver is the ball is moved forward in the stance to make contact on the upswing. This releases some of the forward shaft lean you want in your swing, but other than the plane being a flatter due to the longer club, it's the same. Best of luck! Nate | TSG Instructor

Am I allow to lift right heel to open the hips? This is the only way I can open do

2 oy oldin
Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard
Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard

If you're left-handed, yes. Lifting the lead heel allows the hips to turn further and generate more power. You can also turn out the trail foot a bit as well and that will also help to free up the hips. Best of luck! Nate | TSG Instructor

Make sure you aren't fully straightening your right knee on the backswing. Otherwise your ability to turn the hips will be limited.
