Jason Day - Extension

Jason Day has massive clubhead speed in the golf swing. In this video, I'll show you how to get more speed and tour quality extension just like Jason. You'll learn how the steepness of the shoulders can help create better extension in your golf swing.

  • Keep the head still while the hands and arms are releasing and extending in front of you. 
  • Allow the wrists to remain relaxed and feel as though your trail hand is not pushing against the club. 
  • Allow the shoulders to steepen a bit post impact to help create more extension down the target line.

When he says "level to the ground" at 1:28, is that an incorrect statement? Does he mean "perpendicular" or am I missing something?

Hello Seth. Chris is just relaying that if you pushed your right shoulder across to where the shoulders would be open (not adding secondary tilt) that the hands would disappear quickly to the left.

Hi, thanks for this and the other great videos. Just one request though, it feels as if the majority show the driver . While that's handy the majority of shots are actually with irons which will differ in some details. Ideally I'd have thought it would be worth aiming for a 50/50 split driver/iron. Perhaps one idea for a video would be take someone with a good model swing like Jason and compare his driver with his iron and note the differences

Thanks for the suggestion Martin. One issue we run into from time to time is finding well captured videos at the proper frame rate. Nevertheless, we will put in the think tank.

Hey Joseph, see my response below and see if that helps you better understand.

Thanks ... kinda figured it was due to a driver swing. Question: is it more instructive to use a swing with an iron since that's the emphasis of many videos? Great instructional point about the right shoulder pushing thru impact ... That's me when I'm having a bad day! Usually go back to Clay's Sledgehammer video for a cure.

No problem at all. It is generally better to look at iron swings but sometimes it can be very difficult to locate quality video of the players swings that we can use in these videos. There is quite a bit of search time that is spent finding something that will work and have it display properly so it is easy for you students to watch at home.

Chris, can you reconcile this video with the Level Shoulders at Impact video. They seem to be saying different things. Thanks

Hey Anthony, when working on a stock shot format, you are wanting to have less secondary axis tilt in the hitting area, with the spine just outside the lead knee. When working with a driver swing, we are looking to increase the axis tilt in the hitting area to help launch the ball higher and not have such a steep angle of attack. The steepening of the shoulders you see in this video at impact and post impact is due to it being a driver swing. The level shoulders video is discussing how the shoulders should be under a "stock" swing format.
