Jack Nicklaus believed that a steady head meant a steady golf swing. While your head can't stay dead still, it is suitable for your head to not slide forward past the point in which the head was set up at impact. People who have a lot of head movement change their low point mid-swing. This will change the point at which the club face will contact the ball. Striking a well-struck golf ball and the head's movement and spinal position are critical. Adjust the alignment sticks to keep your head stable and aligned with your spine no matter how tall you are. Level the sticks even with your head from 15-65 inches or more to keep it stable and aligned with your spine, leading to minimal side bend and more consistent contact shots
Steepen the Swing
Depending on the face, an over-the-top swing can cause a player to always start the ball left. The ball with either has the dreaded left-to-right slice. Or have a player who will close the face and go straight left. Either way, only a few good things come from being over the top. Some people believe it is closer to the swing path, which may be necessarily true; however, it’s tough to control a big cut for most people. Most prefer higher draws because they go farther with less spin. Never slice the ball out of bounds again. Our alignment sticks can be set up behind you down the line at hip/hand height, making sure you swing on the proper swing plane, whether too steep or too shallow; it fixes both sides of the spectrum.
Shallow the Swing
Coming into shallow can cause players to over hook the ball or start the ball too far to the right. A player will either keep the face open and cause a push or close the face too much and cause a hook. Players who prefer a steeper swing path can use the Kavooa Pro to steep the takeaway and downswing simultaneously. Like my Coach, Rick Sessinghaus, always said, the golf swing is “80% club face, 20% swing plane”.
Between the sticks
Our product can be pushed together or separated to swing through the sticks on the circle swing plane. This is important because a player can take full swings on the range while having the perfect swing plane. Swinging between the sticks allows the player not to practice so drastically on one side of the spectrum (over the top) compared to the other (too shallow).
Put your putter shaft on the stick as the stick is pointed at the hole. Keeping your shaft on the stick during the stroke helps with aiming a consistent path and teaches the proper stroke for whenyou're on the course. Visually it allows players to watch their eyeliner and show the proper straight back and straight-through stroke.
Forward Shaft Lean
Set up at knee height in front of you and swing below the stick at the point of impact to maintain forward shaft lean, take a good divot, and create consistently powerful contact. Players who may keep their weight on their back foot will learn a lot from this drill by forcing them to correctly make contact with the ball and transfer their weight back to the front side. This drill will also shallow out certain players when they make contact with the inside part of the ball.
When a player has a lot of hip movement and sliding during the swing, it changes the body's low point, compensating and manipulating it in different ways in the golf swing. When a person slides back in the golf swing, the pressure will most likely stay on the back of their stance. This causes a bottom chunk to hit the ground before the ball. Set up at hip level right behind you and stay inside the sticks for minimum hip swaying, allowing you to rotate and smash the ball properly!
Practice keeping your shaft and club head on that plane and bring the swing plane to life when practicing. Practice keeping your shaft and club head on a swing plane you can visualize. Set up the sticks parallel to your shaft and take control of the ball's trajectory. Our product allows players not to put the alignment stick in the ground so that it will be adjustable and not in such a fixed position.Practice will go way smoother!
