Toe Up – Toe Up

What does your ‘555 Team’ mean by this title. We always write with a purpose!

If you accomplish a really solid ‘Sweeping Take-Away’, when you get to your ‘Shaft Horizontal Condition or Position, instructors often strive to get you to be ‘Toe Up’ or leading edge and face perpendicular to the ground. This results in a ‘Clubface Aim that is Open To The Shaft Plane’. This tends us to produce weak strikes to the ‘Low Energy Side Of The Target Line’. (see ‘Push Fades’)

What do we actually want and need when our ‘Club Shaft becomes Parallel to the Ground? (see ‘Swing Sequence #3) When our Clubface Is aimed at ‘The Base Line Of The Plane’, the face should be slightly ‘Closed’ in appearance. Have a strong, stopped and held look at this ‘SS #3’ … Back & Up Swing).

Soon thereafter in the Front Swing, at the ‘Bottom Of Swing Arc’ (BOSA), through Impact & Separation, the Aimed Clubface squares up and continues to close slightly. If one is not cogniscent or aware of this ‘Fast-Handed’ physical detail, the longer-shafted sticks will become friendly with a case of the hooks or even ‘Snap Hooks’. (see ‘Inside-Out Path and a Closed Clubface Aim at the Moment of Separation) Ball flight control shall become a scantilly-clothed casualty! Are you bashful?

You do not want this punishing embarrassment!

Well, perhaps you might?
