Q+A with Vern,
on ‘what you may be giving up, trying for distance’.
Q: In the clubhouse after a round there can often be a few disappointed golfers complaining that they cannot hit their tee shots far enough. Is your tee shot really that critical?
Training with the SwingSound —
In practice sessions with the OnsongSwing, we aim to have the SwingSound commence as the club head approaches our back foot (or to put it another way, as we start to release the club head).
As we swing, we continue to accelerate the club head through the target area (ball) and into the up-swing.
The intention is to concentrate on keeping the SwingSound going. With practice we should be able to keep the tone sounding well past our waist line.
Over time the goal is to slowly increase our swing speed threshold setting on the device. But we should not let this increase in the threshold speed change the tempo of our takeaway or back swing.
We need to continue to focus our efforts on keeping that sound happening well past our front foot. As we work to prolong the SwingSound into our up-swing, we will notice changes in where our swing finishes, and also how we are focusing the energy of our swing.
We might also notice that some aspects of our golf swing, perhaps our grip or stance or balance, are hindering our follow-through. In this case, it may be time to talk to a local golf teaching professional.
The OnsongSwing is a great training tool whether you’re in your garage or visiting an indoor Golf simulator; it will transform your golf.
The OnsongSwing works to shut down a golfers ‘self talk’ for that critical split-second as club head approaches the ball.
A lot of mid and high handicap golfers attempt to consciously control their golf swing, instead of simply swinging through the ball. This is not an easy habit for a golfer to break.
The SwingSound audio feedback tone is the core attribute of your OnsongSwing. It helps focus all the power and strength of your swing into the golf ball.
Unlike other electronic golf training aids, the OnsongSwing directly connects us with the progress of our swing in real time.The training effect is that the SwingSound audible tone becomes the focus of our golf swing to the exclusion of other distracting thoughts.
