Keeping the club square


Imagine that your club head was one of the rungs on this hamster wheel.  Ideally, you would spin the wheel backwards and then forwards hitting the ball absolutely square.  Even if you were to tilt the wheel the swing (rotation of the wheel) you would deliver the club face square at impact.  If we were to twist the rung (club head) breaking it loose from one side or the other as the wheel spun you immediately realize the problem that creates for hitting a ball straight.  I teach using what John Schlee taught me to be “Hogan’s secret”.  Using this simple method I can keep my club head as close to being one of these rungs throughout my swing.  It is how I allow my hands and wrists to work naturally makes this simple “hamster wheel swing” work.
