The Swing: A Hands Off Approach

Waggle and haggleMost golfers are too “handsy.” All you have to do is watch them waggle the club before they swing and you’ll see what they are intending to do. They are all over the place.

It’s easy to think that this is effective. If you use your hands more, you’ll get more distance, right? But in reality, this is counterproductive. Most of the power in your swing comes not from your hands, but from the legs and the turning of your torso. As we have explained in earlier articles, the golf swing should be thought of as similar to a whip, as the power generally comes from a small motion at the base translated into rapid motion at the tip.

To get the results you want, you need the right wrist position. And that’s where Pause-N-Throw comes in. The Pause-N-Throw helps calm the hands and leads to the right release. A lot of people who use it say they feel almost robotic. That’s okay — robots could be quite good at golf. Just ask Iron Byron, the golfing robot. It sets your hands in a repeatable position for solid distance and consistent accuracy on the course. So don’t keep trying to waggle your way to better golf, pick up a Pause-N-Throw and start playing better golf today!
