Additional Instructions for Magnificent Golf Technique
Please keep in mind that if you perform the techniques in the Special Report as instructed, you will be so locked-in to a straight club face alignment that, once locked-in, you must complete the set up proceedings in the following manner. In other words you must then lock-in your body to your ball and target. This means you must then identify your target line, the imaginary line running from your target back to and through your ball. Assume a comfortable stance and posture to your ball, Center the sweet spot of your club face as near as possible to the back of your ball (within 1/8th of an inch to the back of your ball.) Align your shoulders parallel with your target line. Once you have centered the sweet spot of your club face as near as possible to the back of your ball, the best way to align your shoulders parallel with your target line is to use my Arrow Alignment Technique™.
Stabilize your body, close your left eye and focus you right eye on its inside corner (at the top of your nose). You should see a configuration of an arrow at the inside corner of your eye. Keep focusing your right eye on the arrow, immobilize your body, and turn your head in the direction of your target as far as possible. Adjust your feet, if necessary, until the arrow points directly at your target. Then turn your head back to your ball and ensure the sweet spot of your club face has remained centered as near as possible to the back of your ball. Theoretically, your shoulders should be aligned parallel with your target line. Irrespective, here is the last thing you should do before you swing just to make sure your shoulders are aligned parallel with your target line.
It is called the Shoulders- Only test. While your club face remains centered as near as possible to the back of your ball, very slowly raise your shoulders while keeping the sole of your club face grounded. If your club face does not rotate at all when your raise your shoulders it will be locked-in to a parallel alignment between your shoulders and target line. It will simply slide toward you as your raise your shoulders, indicating it is locked-in. If your shoulders are aligned to either the inside or outside of your target line, your club face will rotate as you raise your shoulders very slightly ( while the sole of the club face remains grounded.) In such a case, when your shoulder line becomes aligned parallel with your target line, the rotation will cease and the club face will begin to slide in toward you. In either case, when the club face begins to slide in toward you, it will indicate your shoulders and target line are aligned parallel with each other which is necessary to be in a position to hit a straight golf shot. However, do not forget to push the sweet spot of the club face back to its original if it slides in toward you because it must be in such position in order to hit a golf ball straight. In other words, the sweet spot of the club face must be centered as near as possible to the back of the ball while, simultaneously, the shoulders are aligned parallel with the target line at the completion of the setup routine in order to hit a straight golf shot when using the Locked-In Golf Techniques™.
Here are some things to keep in mind during your swing.
Keep your left heel planted, maintain eye contact with the ball and then execute a regular golf swing without any attempt to manipulate your club. You must maintain eye contact with your ball from the beginning of your back swing through impact while keeping your left heel firmly planted throughout the swing. This will prevent you from swaying and changing your club face alignment and path. (These should be your only swing thoughts.) You should then watch your ball fly on a straight path in line with your target, discounting wind conditions and elevation differences between your stance and ball. Some of my students have had difficulty centering the sweet spot of the club face within 1/8th of an inch to the back of the ball because they had habitually offset it back from the ball much more. If the sweet spot of the club face is not centered as near as possible to the back of your ball at final address, the arc of the swing will bottom-out at the wrong point and you will mishit your golf shot. It typically will fly to the right of you in such an instance. If the ball moves during your setup proceedings or, as you begin your takeaway, simply begin the process anew because the movement of the ball will cause the arc of the swing to bottom-out at the wrong spot. An additional point is that you will be so locked-in to a straight ball flight alignment that you must keep all your angles during your golf swing. This means keeping your left heel planted and maintaining eye contact with your ball, as noted earlier, during your golf swing.
Another point about my Locked-In Golf™ Techniques is the lifeline of the right hand must be docked (locked) squarely and securely on the left-hand thumb to complete the grip, whether you prefer an overlapping, interlocking or baseball style of grip. Lastly, when practicing with this technique, begin with your most lofted club, such as a lob wedge and then swing at different levels until you are able to observe the ball flying on a straight path, consistently. (You may want to tee up your ball slightly when using your irons, when practicing with these techniques.) For example, with your most lofted club begin with only a 1/4th swing, then with a one-half swing, advance to a 3/4th swing and conclude with a full swing. Then move up to the next most lofted club and repeat the sequences until you are comfortable with each club in your set. I also should suggest that you allow your hips to rotate naturally during your downswing instead of trying to slide your hips toward your target to commence your downswing. Irrespective of what a lot of instructors teach, sliding your hips toward the target rather than to allow them to rotate naturally has ruined more golf swings than I care to think about. One other item of note, in some of my techniques, you must unlock your right-hand lifeline from your left thumb by at least by one inch without completely un-gripping your club and then relock your right-hand lifeline squarely and securely on your left thumb. It must be unlocked by at least an inch so please do not compromise this step if required by the instructions. Sometimes the instructions require that the lifeline/thumb connection to be unlocked and relocked more than once. In addition, do not unlock your right-hand lifeline from your left thumb during your swing. Keep a light but tight grip during your swing. Always conduct the Shoulders-Only Test at the completion of the technique to ensure you have locked-in a straight ball flight alignment. Believe me, you may feel that you are locked-in but until you test it you cannot be 100 percent sure. Do not despair over all the information above because these details are covered in the book, including how to perform the Shoulders Only Test™ to determine whether you truly have locked-in a straight ball flight alignment. As you can tell from the above, the Locked-In Techniques™ are the greatest when performed correctly. They do not work if there are any shortcuts. The best of success to you.
