    Matt, This makes total sense. Instructors tell you to use your lower body but, do not give your the necessary anatomical
    and physical exercises to do so. Thanks I am going to work on this.

    Tried it for half an hour this morning and my timing needs a lot of work. I’m normally a pretty ball striker, but after a half an hour of doing this and trying to go back to just a full practice swing with roation, I’m failing to brush the matt anymore…had a ball been there, horrible thinned shot. Unless you’ve got a ton of time to practice, which I don’t, I see this drill could really mess you up. It took me a while to get over the repeating thinned shot that crept into my game, as if I was afraid to hit the ground, no matter how hard I tried I just couldn’t get even the shallowest of divots. In just 30 minutes of trying it, this drill has brought that flaw back big time. I just hope I can get rid of it quickly. I see what this drill is trying to achieve and with considerable time I think it would ultimately be beneficial…but the caveat, once again is that you’ve got to have time to perfect that timing. For me, a little extra distance and power isn’t worth what I just reintroduced to my game.

    This is the same drill that I learned when I was taking ski lessons 65 years ago. The instructor would say Down (squat down), Up (push up), and Swing around. It worked.

    Matt, that looks like an awfully small green. I doubt I could get 1 out of 10 on the green from there!

    No balls on the green. They must have all gone into the hole

    I started doing this move a year ago after watching Justin Thomas’ leg action. I’m 65 y.o. and don’t work out and am not a physical specimen by any standard, but it gives me a legit 20-25 more yds off the tee. My normal driver carry was about 225yds before doing this move. My shortcut is to start in a more squatting position at address and then explode up and around. Starting the downswing with a squat move ala Tiger just messes my timing up.This does work, but my accuracy isn’t as good. Thanks for a great video. Fore!
