Critically Acclaimed Golf Instruction DVD's

There have been countless approaches to the game of golf through DVD golf instruction, golf schools that are being taught with different philosophies around the world and now there are even golf lessons online.

As with everything that is approached from many different angles, there are valuable things that can be learned from almost all of them if you have perspective when you are studying. The more intrigued you are and wish to play golf to your highest ability, the more materials you have probably encountered. Gravity Golf has influenced millions of golfers over the last 40 years and has been studied by not only great players, but neurobiologist, physicist, as well as traveled anthropologist that understand transcending barriers of language and culture.

Weather you come from a different back ground of understanding, have been around the game your entire life or are just being introduced to it for the first time, you will at some point realize that there is an on going learning curve to everything you want to do. The more ways that you can understand and feel how your body can move the more knowledge you have attained. If that clarity comes from golf swing training aids or some school of golf that you have attended, you will have a greater repertoire of information to refer upon for your golfing life.

What we have tried to do and are continually attempting to incorporate into all of our materials, is the insights of all of our students that we have encountered. There are so many nuances to the game of golf, much like the way martial arts is taught in the far east, you must find your way to be at peace with your swing. In order to find effortlessness in your golf swing it takes a tremendous amount of awareness to what your body is telling you. We are continuing to study/invent new drills, that will give you  feed back on if what you are trying to do with your own body is compliant to what should be natural for you or if it is causing harm to your swing.

Give yourself every opportunity to feel the best that you can when you walk onto the golf course about how you have trained your body to move. Enjoy this game for the moment and for the rest of your life.

"After watching the first two videos, I was able to completely change my tension-filled swing approach on the first swing. I am now making by far the best and most consistent ball contact of my life with a fraction of the physical effort." ...John E. Baker, Ph.D., P.E.

"Your instruction, your knowledge, your turning on the lights in your session... will always be, one of the great milestones of my life."
...George Hibbard

"The only way these drills will not make you a better golfer is if you don't have the courage to do them. No one will swing like Danny but the physics involved in any swing are the same. Swing in concert with the physical laws of nature like these drills encourage you to do. Your swing will improve." - Jim Plunkett - Lecanto, Florida

How Can Softer Arms Create More Power? - Drilling for Freedom - by Daniel Lee

How can Softer Arms Create More Power?

Odds are, if you have ever asked yourself, “am I too tense?” the answer is YES! In the golf swing, the natural human instinct at any age is to draw back and then use muscle to pull down and strike at the ball (a video on why you should not pull with the left arm in the golf swing is here). This results in a few different negative consequences, none that you want in your swing if your goal is to become a better golfer and develop a swing that will last a lifetime.

First off, the 3rd Law of Motion, states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. In this case, the pull towards the ball automatically creates a plane change. When you pull down, your weight will shift back to your hind foot and into your toes causing the “over the top move”.

If you understand how alignment is a function of the ball's relativity to your axis (center of gravity) you will see how this can cause for inconsistencies in alignment as well, regardless of where your feet are pointing. One of the great assets to playing with soft arms is that it will not only free up your rotation but will give you a sense of feel throughout your swing that can only be described as....effortless.

Many of the Gravity Golf drills can help you develop soft arms through the downswing.  Try some variations of the 1 arm golf drills to feel where you are adding tension into the arms.  Once you can control the ball well with the left arm and the right arm independently, you will be well on your way to having softer arms and a greater transfer of power through the golf ball as well as more consistency.

How Softer Arms Can Create More Power

Sadly, for golfers all over the world, almost everyone begins by swinging the golf club incorrectly.  The instinct that most players have when they start the down-swing is to flex the shoulders and arms in an attempt to strike the ball.

When a player tightens his or her arms in the down-swing in an effort to create power, it normally has a negative effect on core-speed and distance because most individuals do it too early.  Players that use counter-fall and core mass rotation to “sling” their arms, usually create more power than tight-armed players, and do it with far less effort.

At the completion of the back-swing, if the counter-fall goes deep enough, and the arms start down in a state of total dead-fall, a very gentle turn will create great speed in the arms.  There is a “symbiotic” relationship between the counter-fall depth and the falling arms that allow power to be enabled instead of forced.  Most players never feel how easily this can be achieved because they have flexed their arms and shoulders at the start of the down-swing in every swing they have ever made, and instantly kill the body’s ability to sling the arms with minimal effort.

The best way to develop sensitivity to the impropriety of flexing the shoulders and arms at the start of the down-swing, is to practice the Gravity golf cross-footed, one-armed drills.  It becomes instantly apparent that flexing is not the answer, and you begin to feel how to use counter-fall and mass rotation for power.  Most players, once they know how to apply power correctly, will use no more than one-half their former effort, to move the ball significantly farther.
