Play Like a Pro: Episode 17 - Low and Go
Mitchell Spearman gives a tip on handling wind and hitting the ball low.using the word low, is when I swing the club back, the left shoulder has to work underneath. I have to be able to work the left shoulder down, let me show you from here. If I swing back and I keep that left shoulder low, what that does it keeps my arm across my chest. The left shoulder's down, and I'm right on top of the ball here. That's going to make it so much easier for me to get nice crisp contact with my irons, coming into the shot. If my left shoulder raises up a little bit going back, and I get a little high, a little tall. My shoulder plane gets too flat, and I've moved up and away from the ball, I've come off the shot. Then coming down, I actually can't go, my hips will slide, my upper body's back and I'm gonna hit the ball fat to where I'm gonna hit it thin, but it's not gonna be solid. Keep the left shoulder pointing down here, so I feel like it points down right between my toes, and just stays there. As I turn so I'm rotating and turning but the left shoulder is underneath the chin. Jack Nicklaus used to talk about keeping his chin up, so his left shoulder could go underneath. So, understanding the value of the thought of the left shoulder and what happened is the left arm then just beautifully works across your body at the same time. So, it's amazing how I can technically do all those things, with just one word, which is low. Now the go, is referring to the fact that as I change directions and move toward the target here, my left side, my left knee, my left shoulder are all starting to wind and get out of the way, and I want them to continue, to get out of the way as I go through. I don't want any inhibition coming into the ball. I don't wanna feel like I'm in my own way. I want to get, out of the way as much as I can, I'm trying to clear. So, go is just a freedom of expression, sense and word that really works for me. So, let's give it a try. Say it's a good breeze here today, a nice stiff breeze . Requires a very solid shot, I've got to strike it. Flags all the way at the back of the green. So, low, left shoulder down. Go is, get out of the way and keep moving and turning through the shot. Okay, let's see here, low and
