Ryder Cup Showdown - Rory vs. Bubba

Now that the stage is set...The best players in the world are about to take on golf's most exciting event, the 2014 Ryder Cup. In this video, I will show you how 2 very different golf swings have 2 areas in common that allow them to hit the ball a mile and maintain a lot of consistency. You will learn how important rotating properly throughout the entire golf swing can lead to more distance and more drives in play every time.

  • Maintain your spine angle throughout the entire golf swing
  • Keep the hips back to use the lower body properly
  • Maintain the angle in the spine even after impact for consistency

Hi! Thanks for the video. Like you said tour players swings look different at impact. I was just wondering why? Rory and Bubba hips AND shoulders are open at impact. RST model swing hips are open BUT shoulders are square at impact. These both players are VERY long hitters, so maybe it´s good idear to get "deeper" lag, or what is happening? Or is it a miracle

Jukka, Their shoulders are rounded at that point in the swing because they are extending their arms. If you view their swings from the face-on view, you'll notice that their shoulders are square to the ball at impact. R.J.

Iam sorry but I would rather see in depth videos on how to help our swings! I understand the tush line and spine angle are very important, then could you put more videos up on keeping your spine angle? Or different videos on keeping your tush line

Hey Kelly -- These tour videos are generally geared towards showing things in the golf swing that may or may not help you understand things that are going on in your own swing. Or library of videos in the program and advanced section are geared towards the instructional aspects of the golf swing. We are currently working on a new video that will relate to maintaining spine angle in the golf swing. The tush line video, is one of those videos that addresses a corrective process of the spine angle without directly saying it.

Is it possible to maintain spine angle well past impact (like Rory and Bubba) and at the same time pushing up from the heel on the ground at impact and straightening the lead leg for power? Or can you lower and raise your head relative to the ground without altering the spine angle? Could you sort out my confusion or misunderstanding. Thanks

Hey Denis -- yes, you can maintain spine angle will leveraging the ground and moving the lead leg to a straight position. The head will lower a bit in transition and will raise slightly as the hands and arms enter the hitting area. Feeling as though the chest is more over the golf ball at impact will give you the feel of being able to maintain spine angle. Hope that helps
