GOLF: My Favorite Compression Drill For Hitting The Ball Solid


hey guys in today’s video i’m gonna show you my favorite Compression drill one thing that i use myself in my practice to really hit the ball more solid Alright guys so i want to talk today about my favorite compression drill now what i have here with me is a hanger This is something that i’ve seen a lot of other people do i’m more or less tried kind of on my own just? To see how it felt and after some trial and error i decided that i really liked it and i use it for myself To change my compression so i want to make you guys aware of this if you guys don’t know i haven’t seen this drill before i want to let you know how it works show you myself going through it and then how i feel Things i feel when i use it to help compress the ball more So what we do here is we’ll take a hang or normal hanger from home nothing special about this just a plastic one and we’re gonna put it on the side of the club so when i put this on the side i put it on the left side of the club if it’s a little bit weird when you grip in the beginning i’m looking To put my right hand thumb basically all the way at the end i grip it like that first and then i grip around it from there now the whole point of this hanger is that throughout my swing i’m going to keep a portion of the hanger on my wrist and the goal with that and what i’m really training in here is wrist conditions so from the down-the-line angle here when i start the this little piece of my hanger the middle portion of it will be on My left wrist that i can feel that right off the bat now if i go up to the top some people will use it during the backswing kind of press that hanger up against their wrist there like so and that will give you that sensation in terms of bowing that lead wrist or bending that right wrist back i don’t personally feel it a ton there that’s not what i’m going for i feel like it starts on my wrist and then kind of just stays on my wrist at the top what i’m really looking for is during the downswing right now i can feel it’s pressed on my wrist as i start down i feel like i crank that thing onto my wrist even More and you can see for me for my clubface it does two things one it starts to tilt my Clubface down towards the ground so it’s not Too oh that’s part number one here? you can see also my lead risk goes from just, a slight extension i normally have at the top and i actually turn that down into a bowed Position it gets the club head nicely back out in front for me because i’m too far back Tilts the club face down and when i get to this spot here where the club’s parallel to the ground face is tilted down left wrist is flat this is sort of the ultimate and i’m just trying to Transport that then into my fatha that’s the whole point here so from face on i’m up to the top i feel that pressing against my left forearm and here’s where i’m at at the bottom left wrist is flat this is pressing against my arm Face is tilted down cubs about peril of my hands and that’s it i’m done with my arms and hands there then i’m just transporting that angle into my follow-through the hanger and the purpose of this is to get your wrist conditions right so again when i’m doing this here i’m feeling like from the top i’m cranking my lead wrist down i’m flexing my lead wrist i’m bending my right wrist back i’m feeling this pressing against my form more than normal The mind works i’m cranking that thing down cranking the face down and that’s good and that’s part of it but i have to turn With that right so i was hitting shots i’m saying hey i’m cranking that down and once i’m down to here i’m opening with that i crank it down my face is pointing more down my wrist conditions are good and then now i’m leaving that go And i’m just turning with it is the feel is that what’s actually happening of course not they’re gonna be releasing a little bit but That’s the feel with it same thing from here i’m Cranking my lead wrist and i’m flattening my wrist bowing it i’m cranking the face down and then i’m just opening up i’m not doing anything with my arms and hands from there is the feel of that so you crank this thing down you get your wrist conditions good get your face under control but you have to add the turn with it when do you turn well for me i feel like i turn a lot after i crank it down but you can turn right from the top with it and turn a lot crank this down and add the turn those pieces have to Go together so i’m gonna go ahead and demonstrate a couple here and we’ll start from the beginning so Hangers-on the side thumb is all the way down towards the bottom and i like to just practice this where i’ll do a couple rehearsals i kind of get halfway back it’s on my left wrist i crank it down a little bit feel like pressing into my wrist see my face Turned down and once they close parallel to the ground i’m done then for me it’s just how do i take that and Turn into my follow-through so let’s demonstrate one here I’m going to feel this right there and that was pretty good there for me so same thing i’m gonna do another one and i you know when you’re practicing this i might do twenty to thirty golf balls with this at the beginning of a range session Just, to retain those same feels i’m feeling here cranking that down getting that two here and just turning here and turning for me i really feel like my right side turns through a lot more when i do that yeah, and so that’s the point here right a divot like that compression i’m taking that club i’m taking that dynamic law from where it is normally i’m trying to crank that think for i’m pushing that against my lead wrist in this motion right here you can see what that does it a club if i push that forward my handle goes forward my club stays back and it takes the Loft off that’s what i’m trying to feel i’m just feeling it here and then i’m transporting that into my father obviously there’s gonna be some release that happens but my feel is i get that down there Crank that down face is pointed down wrist is good and then i’m just turning my right side through i’ll do one more and that creates such a good feel for me and when i check that on track me and what it does is takes my dynamic loft down a couple degrees relative to normal increases my angle attack a little bit neutralizes my pass so something you can literally grab for a couple cents out of your closet again when you put it on the club on the side it’s gonna feel kind of weird in the beginning when you grip it you’ll get used to that if you’re someone who your wrist conditions during the backswing get all taken off another thing you can do with that when you come back if your wrist conditions get where it’s cupped here like this you won’t feel the pressure of this on your lead wrist if you flatten that out you start to feel that different – so i like to feel that during the downswing – something i use what a lot of people will change your compression when you get used to it you might be able to use it during the backswing if you go off there as well i hope that that helps like the video leave a comment down below if you guys have any questions about this you
