Maintaining Knee Flex in the Golf Swing - The Anchor

This is a PREVIEW of a PREMIUM video. To watch the entire video, click here.

  • Description

    An all too common swing fault for millions of golfers is to come out of their posture, or lose their spine angle, during the backswing and downswing. This "early extension" is something that not only robs the golfer of control and power, but places the golfer at potential risk for injury in the lead hip and lumber spine (low back). Unfortunately, most golfers and even instructors don't understand the biomechanical causes of this common fault, or how to fix it.

    Video Practice Points
    • Many golf training aids are gimmicks that have no basis in science or fundamentals
    • The Anchor is developed by an orthopedic surgeon & based on biomechanics
    • It provides positive reinforcement, keeping your knee in the flexed position throughout the golf swing
    • It helps you feel anchored and braced to the ground
    • It helps correct issues like straightening up, feeling unstable on the backswing & over-rotating on the downswing

For those golfers who struggle with losing their spine angle and early extension because they push too hard off the right side in the golf downswing, this training aid is stroke saver! It simply won't physically allow you to stand up during the downswing.

It is equally effective for those golfers who tend to allow their right leg to straighten during the backswing. This common swing fault is a result of the golfer heaving the arms straight up in a desparate attempt to get leverage and power into their golf swings. As they lift their arms, their lower body "stands up" and the Anchor golf training aid prevents that from happening

"I think he's come very close to a golf swing model that appears to be ideal...It's a big muscle, motor-driven swing that's repeatable...You don't have to be a super athlete."

"I started playing at 70 years old, at the beginning I was scoring around 100 plus... Following the RST 5 Step System my scores are in the 80 to 86 range. I am out-hitting guys in their 40's and 50's, thanks to you and your system. My back or other muscles never ache, nor am I tired after 18 holes. I am so glad I found your technique and system."
