Chunking Chip Shots

It is this ‘Country Gentleman Golf Teachers’ learned opinion that enables this conversation. A ‘Lifelong Journey’ of small discovery trips! ‘Set-Up and Execution Stability’ never go out of style. Our ‘555 Golf System’ is bed-rocked on our ‘5 SET-UPS’ (Posture, Grip, Stance, Ball Location & Alignment). The sibling foundation is our ‘5 ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS’ (Clubface Aim at the Moment Of Separation, Clubhead Path, Clubhead Speed, Sweet Spot & Angle Of Attack). Golfers soon discover the real meaning of terms like ‘Fat & Thin’. (see our FREE ‘Glossary Of Terms’ on your ‘Website Home Page TAB BAR. You might find this language or vocabulary trove an enjoyable venture?)    www.555golf.com

This ‘Tether Ball Pole Concept’ analogy might help understanding this subject? You know the schoolyard game! The components are a 7 to 8 foot galvanized steel stuck plumb into the ground. It has a swivel loop on the top with a 5 to 6 foot length of rope clipped in place. At the open or free end of this rope there is a ‘Tether Ball’ attached. Two people strike and turn the ball in opposite directions trying to get the ball to wrap or winde tightly around and against the pole. The first person to get this goal accomplished wins!

How does this relate to the ‘Title’ above? The firmly-placed and stable ‘Tether Ball Pole’ is like our ‘Golf Pivot Axis’. (spinal Column – Lower Body Machine … LBM) Our ‘Triangular Lever Assemblies’ (Golf Club, Hands, Wrists, Forearms, Elbows, Upper Arms and Shoulder Sockets) are the ‘Rope’. The ‘Clubhead’ is the ‘Tether Ball’. ‘Round & Round or Rotational Stability’ is an underlying goal for both ‘Tether Ball and Golf’. The governing, science-based body is ‘5 SET-UPS’ and 5 ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS’ as defined above.

Let’s address functional game errors? If the pole gets shorter and the rope stays the same, your ‘Tether Ball’ will soon strike the ground “FAT or Chunky”. (Think Knee Flex) If the ‘Rope’ gets longer, the ball will strike the ground. (Think Lever Length – Extension) If the ‘Pole ‘Tilts or Leans Away From Plumb’, the top swivel gets closer to the ground causing the ball to strike the ground. (Think Aft or Target-ward Tilt as well as Forward or Back Inclination) These three ‘Pivot Axis’ conditions result in “FAT or Chunky”. A common negative outcome is ‘Frustration’ and a depleted inventory of ‘Happy Faces’.
