The Three Swings of Wright Balance: Which One Are You?
Our 25 years of research has yielded the following. In summary we are able to do simple body measurements, provide a student with Stance Widths that recruit different “Core Regions”, and match Stance Widths, Posture and Grip to their playing Core Region for maximum Power and Consistency. There are ways to swing a Golf Club. These Swings come out of 1 of our 3 Core Regions.
In regard to the golf swing, aiming and swinging the club head down the target line are probably the two most important fundamentals. Studying and utilizing Dr. David Wright’s research and Wright Balance, I can measure players and figure out if they are an upper, mid, or lower core player. Upper core player’s hips will be less than 35 degrees rotated at impact, and can stand up through impact. Lower core players will have their hips the most rotated at impact, and will stay in spine tilt through impact. Grips must match the hip rotation at impact. Posture will be different for all three as well. I will help you understand the simple changes you need to make, how you create speed, and how you should release the club based on your dominant core region. I use the latest Foresight Quad Launch Monitor to gather club and ball data, and video whatever we work on.
You have to understand why the ball goes “where,” and how path and club face angles dictate the outcome. Understanding the “ball flight laws” is the key to what truly happened in a swing and more specifically at impact. The arms have a huge influence over the path, and the hands and wrists control the clubface. I have to get students to really understand where they are in their golf swing, so they understand what they need to change, and then what they need to “feel,” to hit the ball more consistently and toward their target. I want you to become your own best coach, know the little tweaks that you can make, to fix yourself out on the golf course. When you know why the ball goes where, you will better diagnose what you need to change on the next swing, to hit the shot you desire.
