Technique to Help Golfers Develop Their Classic Golf Swing Mechanics
A significant amount of the golfer’s practice time and routine is spent developing a golf swing sequence that would allow them to utilize their golf swing mechanics on the golf course. One issue that golfers experience is what they practice usually doesn’t show up on the golf course. This situation causes one of the worst symptoms to occur in golf, and this is when the golfer starts thinking. Thinking is a symptom that indicated a lack of trust in the golfer’s game, regardless of the hours spent practicing.
The objective for the golfer during their practice sessions is to develop techniques that would allow them to use both their golf swing sequence (conscious function- golf swing sequence and elements) with their golf swing mechanics (subconscious function- muscle memory and motor skills) on the golf course. This isn’t only an amateur golfer’s issue, but a professional golfers issue that they can experience.
If the golfer (amateur or professional) doesn’t develop self-coaching techniques in their golf game, they will need to develop a lot of patience by sweating it out on the golf course and practice range. This is because it will take the golfer a significant amount of time to synchronize their golf swing sequence with their muscle memory. The statistics for the average golfer bears this out. This is why a lot of golfers are leaving the game of golf.
HY-BAR Technique to Synchronize the Golfer’s Game
The most effective golf swing technique is one that involves what Sports Psychologists call Sports Imagery. The significance of the golfer’s subconscious mind, is it contains 90 percent of their golf game and their performance, and it is based on the golfer’s ability of using their five senses, especially mental imagery and feeling.
The HY-BAR golf swing technique, shown above, accomplishes two objectives in the golfer’s performance. FIRST- It allows the golfer to sync their golf swing mechanics (muscle memory and motor skills) with their golf swing sequence (routine elements). This essentially connects the golfer’s mental game (played on the golf course) with their physical game (what the golfer spends hours practicing). SECOND- It allows the golfer to set one of the most important components in their golf swing sequence, which is setting the proper wrist action in the golf swing.
The HY part of the golf swing technique is the left Hypothenar muscle for a right-handed golfer, while the BAR is the golfer’s right Pronator Quadratus muscle. These are two of the most important key kinetic chain muscles in the golf swing sequence. The HY-BAR golf swing technique is like a golfer using a key to start their high performance sports car.
The reason I used the term ‘HY‘ is because it represents the golfer’s left Hypothenar. The term ‘BAR‘ is how I treat my right Pronator Quadratus muscle, like a piece of short flat metal bar. The golfer using the HY-BAR golf swing technique will allow them to naturally and Effectively Sync/Preset their golf swing sequence, without even thinking.
The HY-BAR golf swing technique is no different than the golfer turning a key to start the car’s engine. The golfer knows they have to turn the key to start the engine; they just don’t think about it, it’s a natural process. I consider my left Hypothenar like a flipper on a pinball machine. The short flat BAR I’m treat as a bar welded to a gear on my right lower forearm.
The more mental images that the golfer can develop, the less the golfer has tendency to think about on the golf course. I consider thinking during the golfer’s routine and golf swing sequence as Paralysis-Analysis. If you start thinking, you no longer follow a golf swing sequence during your golf round, instead you’re trying to develop a new revised golf swing sequence. NOT a good thing to do on the golf course.
David Duval’s Golf Swing Sequence Demonstrated to Charlie Rymer on Golf Channel
I alluded to David Duval’s golf swing sequence that he demonstrated on Golf Channel to Charlie Rymer on more than one occasion in The QATSPY Sports Page 4 Golfers articles. But it bears mentioning again, due to how David Duval preset his wrist action in the golf swing. The HY-BAR golf swing technique similar to David Duval’s golf swing sequence allows the golfer to preset the wrist action in the golf swing. This Sync/Preset completes 80 percent of the golfer’s swing and confidence. There’s no substitution for confidence on the golf course.
The Sync/Preset golf swing sequence is similar to the golfer using a key, their HY-BAR, to turn on their high performance engine, their golf swing mechanics. This is like sitting in a 1967 Stingray Corvette and feeling the performance of the engine. Besides that, just the mere image of a ’67 Corvette does wonders for the golfer’s mental performance.
One other distinction between the Sync (Supination) and Preset (Pronation) is that Pronation, where the golfer is closing the clubface at impact, has five times the force as that of Supination. It doesn’t matter if you’re right-handed or left-handed golfer closing the clubface at impact is performed by Pronating the trail wrist and lower forearm. The Supination and Pronation maneuver are shown below. A great way to distinguish between Supination and Pronation is to in vision palm up scooping water up with your hand as Supinating. Then consider pouring water out of the palm as Pronating.

Additional Motivation to Develop a Fitness Program

A Recommendation for your Golf Game:
I would like to recommend an interesting radio program that I regularly listen to from my home state Arkansas on my I-Heart Radio app on KARN 102.9 FM station, out of Little Rock, AR. They air a golf show called Arkansas Fairways and Greens, at 7:00 AM CT each Saturday morning, hosted by Bob Steel, and co-hosted by Jay Fox and Charles Crowson. Bob occasionally as has his guess Alex Myers with Golf Digest and Ron Sirak with Golf Channel. I was interviewed on his show about my book, The ESPY Golf Swing Coach. This show is worth tuning into for golf news and information.
Jay Fox is an Administrator with Arkansas State Golf Association that discuss amateur golf and rules of the game.
Once you learn WHY, you don’t forget HOW!
Two decisions that you can make for yourself and your kids are to get a copy of my book and place the book and a golf club into their hands. You will never look back, but only forward. You will not miss with this for yourself and/or your kids.
