Synchronization provides enormous advantages to the golfer and is the biggest asset, as well as the main obstacle for the golfer to manage. Synchronizing the golf swing is the main objective of The ESPY Golf Swing Coach to improve your golf swing. A consistent golf swing depends on the golfer synching the elbows with the shoulders, like sprockets. Synching the elbows with the shoulders can be naturally performed using three relatively simple elements of Synch, Protract, and Yaw. This golf swing sequence can provide the golfer with speed, control, and power.
For the right-hander, the natural Synch, the first element, is for speed and uses the left lower forearm, or wristband area of the boxing glove. The second element, Protract, is for control and is the turbocharged component, using the left thenar. The first two elements, designated by S.P., are the most critical because they synchronize and lock the right elbow with the shoulders. The S.P. elements set the left and right wrists into the classic position for impact. This has been used by every major professional golfer.
The ESPY Golf Swing Coach is a self-coaching book that focuses on the golfer properly setting the wrists and thumbs to properly synchronize the elbows with the shoulders. Setting the wristbands early allows the golfer to coil the shoulders with the elbows to torque the upper body with the lower body during the takeaway swing. In the downswing, the body can naturally uncoil to release the torque through the shoulders to turn the elbows for speed though impact.
By the golfer properly establishing the Synch, Protract, and Yaw elements to the top of the swing, the golfer can take maximum advantage of the body’s natural mechanics. The other advantage in setting the Synch and Protract elements is with these two short and simple elements, the golfer can complete 80 percent of the golf swing.
By breaking down the golf swing sequence over the past seven years in Madison, MS, I developed the coaching system called QATSPY. During the writing process, I had three boxes where I collected my data. Two boxes were labeled “THIS DOESN’T WORK.” The other box was labeled “THIS WORKS.” I applied my background in engineering, kinesiology, and ergonomics to help me assemble this information to write The ESPY Golf Swing Coach.
This book is laid out in a format that will improve your golf swing and allow the golfer to make a more consistent golf swing. This book doesn’t just describe what the sequences are, but how and why these elements are performed. The golfer will gain a better understanding of the golf swing, and that will prove useful on the golf course as a critique of the golfer’s swing.
