Jim McLean, voted the #3 "Best Teacher" in America by his peers, would like to share with you
another one of the 21 "Death Moves" that kill most golfers ability to play well consistently.
Death Move #11: Getting Your Body Ahead of the Golf Ball
If you are making the above "Death Move", or any of the following 20 others, you are making this game a LOT harder
than it needs to be. Take a look at the rest of these "Death Moves" and determine how many of these
moves are KILLING your swing and your ability to score.
This is the first Death Move and it's a doozie. If you freeze over the golf ball, before you start your swing, you're in trouble before you even get started.
This is where your weight goes toward your forward leg on the backswing and then your rear leg on your forward swing.
Width in your backswing is good; it's "over-extension" to try to create additional width that is the problem.
This is where your hands and arms roll over in the backswing and the clubface points up towards the sky.
This is trying to create X-Factor resistance in the lower body - to a "fault". This is your lower body doing "nothing" in your backswing.
This is where the golfer takes the club back and starts to "hood it" on the way back. This usually combined with the butt of the club getting too far away from the body.
This is typically caused by having a weak left (top hand) on the club and sometimes having both hands in a weak position. This causes the club to be wide up at the top
This is where your back (rear) elbow is glued to your side in the backswing. This might have worked 100 years ago with wooden shafts, but it doesn't work in modern golf.
#9. Shaft Tip Over
This is where you try to take the club inside, to hit the ball from the inside, and your club actually gets "steep" by working out toward the ball, the shaft is "Tipping Over".
#10. Too Shallow
This is from getting the club "underneath" your right (back) arm on the way down and the club gets to "shallow", too far from the inside and you risk hitting behind the ball and blocking it out to the right.
#12. Levels In Your Swing
This is where you are "lifting", or "dipping" excessively during your swing. This makes it very difficult to hit the ball on the center of the clubface consistently.
#13. Weight On The Toes
This is the worst place you can have your weight to stay in balance. If you start out with your weight there, you'll never be in balance during your swing.
When your hands and the club "run away" from your center, you have no chance of having any kind of tempo during your swing. You are disconnected, this is not a one-piece takeaway.
If you drive the ball "short" this is for you! If you move ahead of the ball (with your head) with the driver, you're going to get "steep" with the shaft and bad things are going to happen every time.
This is where your back heal "shifts" back behind the toe in the downswing, what I call "spinning out". This is usually combined with the left hip turning back prior to the weight being shifted forward.
This is where you start down with the hands and arms, from the top of the swing, in an effort to hit the ball with the hands and arms.
This is another form of a Reverse Pivot where the front foot spins out and takes the knee and the hip with it, causing you to fall back in the forward swing.
#19. Chicken Wing
This is where the body "center" stops moving and the arms try to hit the ball on their own. This is caused by releasing the club too early, hitting off your back foot, and having your forward arm "disconnect" from the body.
This is the breaking down of the left wrist (forward wrist) at or before impact. The job of the left hand is to "not break down".
This is usually the better player trying to hit the ball from the "inside" or "down the target line" where the club gets too "vertical" in the follow-through.

Building Blocks Approach System
1.The First Step
You'll learn about how the "Mini Micro Move" initiates the one piece takeaway. Jim and his staff of Lead Master Instructors will also provide you with drills and practice ideas to better the start of your swing.
The Halfway Back Position is an important checkpoint with room for personal preference. It's interesting to note that, at this split second, the club head is as far from the target as it will ever get
3.Three Quarter Backswing
The Three Quarter Backswing is a crucial part of the golf swing where the left forearm and club shaft (right handed golfer) form an "L". At this position you'll be able to check whether or not your swing is on plane.
100% Of Your Shoulder Turn is considered to be when the backswing is completed. You'll learn that there is not one perfect position at the top of your backswing with PGA Tour Models as a reference. You'll also learn the importance of the clubface position.
5.Move Down To The Ball
Move Down To The Ball is considered to be the most important move in golf. All great players from all different decades perform this move well. You won't see a great player in a bad position at step 5.
Impact or the Moment Of Truth is not the same as address. Contrary to popular belief the impact position is completely different than the starting position you have at address. Don't believe it? Check it out for yourself on DVD 6.
The Early Follow-Through is the segment of your swing between impact and the full finish position. You'll learn how the club should exit the impact position and link into Jim McLean's Powerline.
8.Finish & Rebound
The Finish And Rebound is the final stage of the golf swing. Momentum takes you to a completed follow through position, where your hips and shoulders are fully rotated and the club is behind your head momentarily.
