WHY CONVENTIONAL GOLF INSTRUCTION IS SO UNRELIABLE
The typical golf instructor’s method of teaching is to coach his or her student to manipulate the club in some way during the swing in an attempt to square the clubface to the ball at impact..
The very proposition of teaching a golfer to manipulate the club during the golf swing in an attempt to square the clubface to the ball at impact only goes to show that the clubface was not square at the beginning of the golf swing.
This type of instruction is completely unreliable because no one knows the alignment and swing path of the clubface at the completion of the setup proceedings unless one of my Locked-In Golf Techniques was performed to lock-in a square alignment and an online swing path of the clubface prior to the beginning of the swing.
Only a very few golf instructors are familiar with my Locked-In Golf Techniques. Those who are familiar with them do not know how to instruct the techniques and therefore resort to the old manipulative instruction of the past-which is so unreliable.
The instant you assume a conventional overlap, interlock or baseball style of grip, your wrists will rotate your clubface to an effective open alignment (irrespective of how it may appear) and the swing path of your clubface will rotate to an out-to-in path, This means a slice ball flight alignment if a non-manipulative golf swing is executed at this point.
However, the slice ball flight alignment at this point of the setup routine is not locked-in, meaning any body movement after the initial grip is completed will rotate the alignment and swing path of the clubface to a different ball flight such as a hook, push, pull, push-slice or pull-hook alignment.
However the ball flight to which the alignment and swing path of the clubface has rotated is not locked-in at the completion of the setup proceedings. Also the the alignment and swing path of the clubface is unknown at the completion of the setup routine.
So how is an instructor to know how to coach a golfer to manipulate his or her club during the golf swing in an attempt to square the clubface to the ball at impact on a swing path that matches the directional line to produce a straight golf shot when the clubface alignment and swing path of the clubface is unknown at this point?
The truth of the matter is there is no reliable way to coach a student using the manipulative golf method of instruction to square the clubface to the ball at impact..
