The follow-through rules!

Having a strong follow through is considered by many to be the most important asset in your golf swing! In martial arts, and in all bat and ball sports, an accelerating blow delivers maximum power into the target. Like the miraculous Ch'i in martial arts, a strong follow through in a golf swing is far more important in delivering power, distance and control than adding 10~20 kilometers per hour in swing speed.

Keeping Personal Information safe

Hi hello to our Members. You may have recently seen news articles about changes to the European Union’s Privacy Protection policies. And you possibly have received E-mails from various organisations notifying you of updates to their individual Privacy Policies. We did not send any of our Members an e-mail about Compliance with the  European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Why not? you might ask; well we did some research and, after digesting a really good white paper from the  Office of the Australian Information Commissioner, it appears that Onsong Innovation’s  OnsongSwing.com  e-commerce activity and our management of  Personal Information that we hold for EU citizens who are members or casual site visitors does not fall under the GDPR.  We do not perform any Data aggregation using you personal information nor do we pass your personal information to third parties beyond your delivery details to our couriers.

We do comply with the Australian Privacy Act 1988 * and our Privacy Policy is based on the National Privacy Principles detailed in the Act.

However we have taken the opportunity to strengthen our Privacy Policy to include certain rights that the EU GDPR provides for it’s citizens:

  • Currently you can de-activate your membership (and your account with us) by clicking on the link on your My Account page.

  • You may also, via the Member’s Priority Support Contact Form, request that we delete all of your Personal Information from our database. That is to say; we will delete our record of your Membership, the details of your sales purchases from our shop and any accumulated referral credits; you will be completely forgotten. Please select the Subject:- Privacy – Delete all my Personal Info you hold

While we would be disappointed to see you cancel your membership we respect your rights to do so.

Cheers and Happy Golfing!

challenge the dynamics of your swing!
Challenge the dynamics of your current swing before you change technique — The critical part of a golf swing happens too quickly for our brain to actively track progress. Any attempt at conscious control invariably results in loss of power. Some golf instructors call this the 'flinch'.

Chipping Practice Drill plus settings

Some of us really struggle and are hugely frustrated by our chipping action around the greens.  The OnsongSwing combined with this chipping practice drill will go a long way towards helping you build consistency into your short game.

A couple of principles we suggest you apply to your chipping;

  • every chip you make, no matter how close to the green and the pin you are, should have some follow through,
  • don’t let the club head slow into the ball, that will make it almost impossible to maintain distance control across different lies,
  • maintain a consistent stroke through the ball, shorten the back swing to adjust the carry.

Use these settings for this drill:

  1. Press M for MAIN MENU and < Club Type> will appear on screen,  press ◙ to select.
  2. Press ► until <Wedges> displays and then press ◙ to select and return to Swing When ready screen.
  3. Press M for MAIN MENU again and press ► once and < Graph Scale> appears.
  4. Press ◙ to select then scroll by pressing ► or◄ until <300%> displays and press ◙ to select.
  5. From the Swing When Ready screen, press and hold ◄ to reduce the threshold speed to the minimum.

Your OnsongSwing is now super sensitive to all movement and the audio feedback tone will activate at very low swing speeds.

Use this drill to build consistency into your chipping:

  • place the ball a little back in your stance,
  • move your weight more onto your front foot,
  • stay very still over the ball,
  • slow your takeaway to avoid the audio tone activating on your back swing,
  • shorten your back swing and extend your follow through,
  • accelerate through the ball, continuing at least until the club head points to your target landing area.

The aim is to maintain the audio tone through the ball and into the follow-through. Don’t look where the ball goes feel it’s direction through your hands. Practise across a range of distances from your target; increase your back swing and swing speed for more carry.

 

With  an effective follow-through, your graphs will show the impact with the ball in the middle of the screen and your follow-through continuing to the right-hand edge of screen.

 

 

Catching the ground first, slowing into the ball or lifting early to watch the ball on it’s short flight, will all result in graphs that run across the screen and stop abruptly on or just before the right-hand edge of the screen.

We’d love to hear if this chipping practice drill helps build more consistency into your game. It certainly helped reduce my frustration levels around the green.

The best time to start practising your golf was sometime last year. The second best time is today!

Happy Golfing!

Member Rewards Update

Also, if you have an active Paypal account we can transfer cash funds into that Paypal account to the tune of 7% of the net retail price for each referral credit. That is AU$15.75 for each credit. Percentage wise that is undoubtedly the best loyalty/referral offer ever.

Well, for a limited time, the company directors have decided to offer double credits for our high achievers, that is a bonus gift of 9 credits paid into your member Account … that’s AU$141.75

Selecting a threshold swing speed to slow your tempo.

In your OnsongSwing user manual, page 27, we talk about how to establish a threshold swing speed setting. There are a couple of alternate approaches to achieve this. In this blog I outline a technique which can help you soften and slow the tempo of your swing with out sacrificing club head speed through the ball.
