Using Pressure Points to Produce Professional Impact

This motion can be useful when applied as a training drill to help students needing a positive opposite feel to their current motion.

The goal of the drill is to keep the club head in front of the hands during the back swing and feel the club head fall behind the hands in down swing.  This can be achieved through the use of the pressure points.

Usuing #1 pressure point, the heal pad of the lead hand, you push down on the top of the grip while using #4 pressure point, the back of the lead arm connected to side of your chest, to turn the body around the spine.  This allows you to create some radical hand behavior to feel the club head lag behind the hands and engage pressure points #2, heal pad of the trailing hand, and #3, base knuckle of the trailing hand.  Developing lag pressure is one of our imperatives to achieving professional impact.  This video will help you understand pressure points.
