THE ‘PUSH’ SHOT
“Oh No!”

Being professionally disciplined, always accomplish your ‘Pre-Shot Routine’ as well as your ‘Post-Shot Routine’. We must know what we are going to do as well as what we have done.

Always strive to ‘Fix It Fast’ in the simplest manor possible. Keep it simple and execute!

A ‘Push Shot’ is a ball flight that goes to the Low Energy Side of the Target Line primarily due to a ‘Clubhead Path Error.’ A ‘Push Cut Shot’ is the same error but with an added ‘Open Clubface’ that induces a required ‘Side Spin Rate’ in the direction of the ‘Push’.

‘Push, Push, Path’ Corrections:

Conservative or moderate ‘Stress’ can be used as an asset! It is really a net gain for golfers and ‘Hikers On The Trails Of Life’… courageous or timid. Stress often activates performance.

Stress builds resilience. Our brains are equipped and tempered to see and manage ‘The Stresses Of Change’. Let us open a door to our wilderness world and invite what might initially be a skeptical guest? Could be YOU.

To do the best we can do, we must become competent in making and accepting changes regardless of magnitude. We must be able to make them on short notice. This requires that we are spontaneously open-minded and flexible. We must commit to a multidimensional flight plan!

IS THERE ANY GOLF KNOWLEDGE MAGIC?

Perhaps! You do not have to grind or struggle your way to the ‘Top Of Front Swing’. (TOF)

Think about your ‘Sweeping Full Swing Back & Up Motion’. Your ‘555 Team’ sometimes refers to this as the ‘Turn & Lift’ … The Lower Body Machine (LBM) ‘Pivots and Coils Aft’ storing ‘Potential Energy’ to soon be converted into ‘Kinetic Energy’. (ALSDR Sequence - Accumulate, Load, Store, Deliver & Release - The Power Line Delivery Sequence)

So, the ‘Brace Lever Assembly’ bends (Loads & Stores) during the Back & Up Swing. Logic tells us that it shall also reciprocate or ‘Straighten’ in the ‘Down & Out or Front Swing’. (Bend & Straighten Drill)

What is this ‘Transition’ topic? It means to ‘Shift’ or move from one point to another. Your ‘555 Team’ also refers to this mechanical element as the ‘Lateral Bump or Shift’ which occurs between the Top Of Back Swing (TOB) and initiation of the Front Swing. It is a subtle shift in your ‘Hip Girdle’ (Core) towards the ‘Far Target’. We generally have a ‘Shift’ in our simple ‘Ambulation’ or walking process. The ‘Lower Body Machine’ mass has to have a starting point whereby it shifts towards a destination with every cycle or step. (see and feel ‘Skipping Rocks’)

Set-Up with your magical ‘Impact Fix’ whereby we know the ‘Impact & Separation Zones Components & Procedures’ are located so as to be able to do work to that target end.

After you make your ‘Sweeping Back & Up, Turn & Lift’ move to the ‘TOB’ (Swing Sequence #5), you will naturally tend to lift your ‘Target Heel’ very slightly off the ground. You will recognize this up-shift in heel position.

There is an endless ‘Global Variation’ in specs. Then there is a consistent variation between the manufacturers for a myriad of reasons, including just wanting their #6 Iron to go farther, to generate more ‘Carry’ than the other guy. Oriental manufacturers are notorious for ‘Strong Lofting’ … #7 Irons that carry as far as most #6 Irons! It could include powdered deer antler or bear claw?

We hear golfers telling fellow players how they “Replaced their #3, #4 and #5 Irons” with a #3 (21 Loft), #4 (24 Loft) and #5 Hybrid Irons (27 Loft). What is the difference between standard Irons and Hybrid Irons? Are they the same Length, Loft and Lie? Seldom if ever! Hybrid Irons have similar ‘Sole Length’ and thus ‘Bounce’ characteristics as ‘Fairway Metals’. They appreciate some ‘Down Force’ or ‘Pinch Tendency’ to launch the ball. You do not want to strive to ‘Lift The ball Off The Grass’ with Irons, Hybrids or Fairway Metals’. “There Is No Up In Your Front Swing unless you like thin or topped!”

You have heard your ‘555 Team’ discuss an interesting topic … ‘What and Where Is The Source of the Mighty Mississippi River?’ This is a good Google task. Enter the question in your Task Bar and see what comes up. You will very likely have to search multiple watersheds and rivers to get from genesis to the Caribbean and Gulf Of Mexico end of this massive drainage system.

How does this relate to ‘The Golf Swing’? From the most micro Putt to the biggest driver rip, the motion and energy has to start from some very small yet well defined, three-dimensional point in Earth’s space. The ‘Golf Swing’ has it few ounces of energy which evolve and expand into ‘Foot Pounds and Horsepower’, which is delivered to ‘The Bottom Inside Cheek’ (BIC), the Ballistic Point of the Golf Ball. Today’s technology enables this happening to be observed, evaluated and quantified. There have been some discoveries!

The Source of the Human Golf Mississippi River is the Brace Big Toe. This governs the loading and unloading of ‘Rotational or Pivot Pressure and Energy’.

We know that the Clubhead and Shaft ‘ORBIT’ like the moon around Earth. The Earth revolves around the Sun. We might feel that we are our own ‘Golf Solar System’s with 14 moons or clubs in our bag?

It is useful to think of the ‘Clubhead’s Orbiting’ around our ‘Sternal Spinal Core’ somewhat as a gyroscope does around its North South or vertical axis? Our 555 Golf ‘Tetherball Concept’ is properly envisioned and referenced. The Tether Ball is our ‘Clubhead’. The Club Shaft is our ‘Tether Ball Rope’. The fixed or stationery Pole is our ‘Stable Human Spinal Column’ or ‘Pivot Axis’. I suspect you might be familiar with the commonly referred to ‘Hoola Hoop’ inclined orbital analogy (training aid) placed over our shoulders on an ‘Inclined Plane’. Useful!

Our shafts have a ‘Plane’ at all times, especially at The Top Of Back & Up Swing’. (TOB) If you shoot a laser beam out of the Hole in the Butt of the Grip, it will strike the ground at a certain point. The line created is called the ‘SS #5 Shaft Plane’. It is created by the ‘Human Sternal Axis’ along with the attachment of the two ‘Lever Assemblies’ (Hands, Wrists, Arms & Club’).

AN OVER THE TOP OPTION
As simple as ‘Under The Bottom’?

Your ‘555 Team’ gets it! … Just a tricky play on words? … More than that as you shall see!

Why attempt to deliberately get ‘Laid-Off’ or the current fad of ‘Shallowing Out’? These words convey an EFFECT, but not so much about ‘The Cause or Cure’. In modern golf, very much due to our ‘Cause-Oriented Video Expertise’ combined with the likes of an almost unaffordable Trackman genre of electronics, gets us in poor places and golf mechanical predicaments. You have better things to invest your time and money in? ($15,000 cost range?)

Make some ‘Slow Motion Drills’ with a mid #8 Iron ‘Over The Top’ … Casting … Above Plane. Pay attention to the poignant feel! It is no mystery! Like throwing a high ‘Steelhead Lure’ well out into the river … overhand! Works for catching those amazingly powerful ‘Silver Bullet Aquatic Creatures’, in most instants, but not in controlled, ‘Down-The Line’ golf shots!

We certainly know how important your ‘Orbital Core or Spinal Vertebral Stability’ is in making predictably successful golf strikes. Our ‘Lever Assemblies’ are very dependent on our ‘Spinal Configuration’. As we ‘Forward Incline or Aft Tilt’, our ‘Hands & Golf Club’ perform around the human ‘North-South Polar Axis’. The ‘Lever Assemblies’ are not usually at 90 degrees to the ‘Spinal Engine’ but are definitely, consistently affixed or oriented! Set-Up for success!

‘Time For A Feel’? Stand up and ‘Set-Up’ to Address Ready (Neutral, Tap Tap Tap). You can also assume the very important ‘Impact Fix Configuration’. Pay particular attention to your ‘Lever Angles’ to the ‘Spinal Axis’ … varies with ‘Shaft Length’. This relationship remains quite stable during the entire ‘Back & Front Swings’. (see ‘Back & Up and Down & Out’)

Additional to ‘Core Stability’, ‘Scapular Stability’ is a primary goal. Your ‘Brace Hitting Shoulder Assembly’ provides the stability necessary to make that all-important ‘Bend & Straighten Action’ so responsible for ‘Clubhead Speed’ and delicate ‘Component Control’.
