TORSO TWIST DRILL

Assume an upright and vertical setup position with feet shoulder width apart and knees slightly flexed. Visualize a basketball player about to shoot a free throw.

 
Torso Twist
Extend arms outward at stomach level, holding the Whip in the fingers with palms facing skyward. From this position, a slight tilting of the hips would put you in a traditional golf stance. But, this drill is done in the upright position.

Begin rotating (turning) your upper body back and forth, using the balls of your feet to center your balance and initiate each rotation to the other side. Rotate in a smooth, continuous motion from your right side to the left side, back and forth, allowing your hips to pivot freely while shifting weight from one side to the other in conjunction with your upper body. The objective is to maintain the relationship of upper body, extended arms and hands that was established in the setup. Try and rotate at the same tempo as your golf swing and maintain that pace the entire drill.

Drill Enhancement
Tip #1: To combat the habit of using the upper body to initiate momentum during the Torso Twist, hold lightly in your fingers. Footwork should be the main focus when doing this drill.

Tip #2: Once you feel comfortable with the drill, try it with your eyes closed. This will amplify the sensation of your balance and footwork during the drill. It's best to use this technique only after you can comfortably stay balanced with eyes open.


HINGING FOREARM ROTATION DRILL
Assume a proper and athletic set-up position with a slight forward tilt from the hips. Keep back straight, tilt just enough so your chin is above the end of your toes.

With the arms hanging naturally, wrap the fingers of one hand over the product sticker just below the grip; this will make the Orange Whip more manageable for one hand. Grip pressure should be light, similar to the ideal grip pressure for a golf shot...just firm enough to maintain control and the lighter the better.

Hinging Forearm RotationBegin the drill by pushing (swinging) your arm in front of your body. The counterweight will be hindered by your hip, therefore promoting the rotation of the forearm. As the motion develops, allow the torso to twist with the swinging whip. Please watch the video to see a demonstration of this motion.

The wrists should hinge to accommodate the weight of the swinging whip. Allow your "free" hand to swing naturally with your body movement. Find and maintain a repeating, smooth rhythm coordinating your arm movement, weight transfer and torso rotation. Focus on your footwork and the balls of your feet as they initiate and coordinate the transfer of weight and center your balance.

The hinging wrist will develop naturally if you are patient. The goal is to improve the harmony of motion in the sequential movements of the lower body, torso, and the hands and arms. This is commonly referred to as "Kinematic sequence or synchronization of motion" in golf instruction.

Drill Enhancement
Tip #1:
To find the most balanced and effortless way to rotate the forearms and hinge the wrists. Begin with small, pendulum like movements and gradually increase the length of the motion. The weight of the Orange ball, counterbalanced by the weight at the grip end will help keep the shaft on plane.

Tip #2: One way to help visualize this motion is to picture (or mimic) a tennis player's backhand and forehand ground stroke motion.


FULL SWING DRILL
Assume a proper athletic & balanced setup position. Allow the Orange ball to hover a few inches above the ground.

Begin slowly swinging the whip back and forth in a continuous, pendulum-like motion. Maintain the proper "one-piece" connection throughout and allow for the natural hinging of the wrists as the length of the motion increases.

 
Full Swing Drill
Allow the gathering momentum to take over and extend the length of the swing. Centrifugal force will carry you through to a fully rotated and balanced swing motion. Practice a smooth, consistent rhythm throughout the drill and always "finish" each swing in balance.

Continue the back & forth, full swing motion without interruption for approximately one minute, or until you feel uncomfortable and/or fatigued. Try not to impart any force or manipulation of the whip during the drill. Allow it to move along the swing arc naturally and focus on your balance.

Too often golfers engage in swing drills in a rush to finish and pay little attention to the dynamics that can help them on the golf course. This simple drill can help you improve in many areas and quickly if you focus on the right things for a few short minutes.

Drill Enhancement
Tip #1: To help reduce the habit of manipulating the golf club during your swing, grip the Whip as lightly as possible and maintain that exact grip pressure for the entire length of the drill. Sounds easy, but it's harder than most anticipate. You can evaluate your grip pressure and it will improve.

Tip #2: Once you feel comfortable with the drill, try it with your eyes closed. This will amplify the effects and benefits of the Whip. It's best to use this technique after you can first maintain good balance during the drill with your eyes open.

Tip #3: It's common that golfers struggle to take their "range swing" with them out on the course. The same is true of their "Whip swing". Here are some ways to use our Full Swing Drill to help find your "Whip swing" on the golf course.


Why It Works
Orange Whip Golf Trainer uses the three fundamental learning devices - visual (see), auditory (hear) and kinesthetic (feel) to create a mental and physical connection to the whip motion you can summon while playing. Focus on the one that suits how you best learn - so if you are a primary visual person then you should "see it."

See It: Create a mental image of your swing arc while using the whip. Closing your eyes during the drill and visualize the path of the whip throughout the swing. You can also swing in front of mirror, or take video footage of yourself swinging the Whip for later review. Now when you can't find your Whip swing on the course, call upon the visual memories you so wisely practiced while engaged in the Full Swing Drill.

Hear It: Listen to sound of the whip as it moves along the swing arc. Here again it can be good to close your eyes and focus only on the sounds and rhythm of the motion. Also, do the drill while listening to music, preferably a song or songs you enjoy. You can later call upon these sounds and auditory memories on the golf course to help you find your Whip swing.

Feel It: While swinging, focus on the physical sensation of the swing arc. Once again, closing our eyes is a fantastic way to focus on just the feel of the whip during the swing motion. Feel your balance, your grip pressure and how your body moves all along the swing path. If you do this for a few minutes each time you work with the whip, you will be amazed how much easier it will be to find and maintain your Whip swing on the golf course.



Benefits of using the Orange Whip Golf Trainer
One of the best and often overlooked features is the ability to use it indoors without compromising its unparalleled performance. It only requires a minimal amount of space and 5-10 minutes of training time per day. No golf swing trainer is more time efficient and effective. You can work with an his training aid year-round and never again have to depend on weather conditions or daylight when you want to improve your golf swing and fitness. It's the ideal tool for those living in challenging winter environments and busy individuals with little time to practice.

The Foundation Drills are the core group of training exercises designed to maximize the effectiveness. These can be performed in a single daily workout. To increase benefits to fitness and flexibility, 2 or more sets per day are recommended. In general, only 5 to 10 min every day is required to notice some results. This minimal time requirement makes it easy for almost anyone to incorporate these drills into their schedule.

With an Orange Whip, anyone can make the most out of the winter months and improve without hitting golf balls. If a golfer trains their swing without using a ball, the mind and body will allow the swing to develop naturally. The Orange Whip can eliminate the 'hit' instinct from your mind and consistency can be developed.

In addition, once a person athletically learns how to swing the product, I encourage the user to try and feel where the Orange ball would release off the end of the shaft. This is a great mental exercise for those who want to improve the accuracy of their golf shots .

CAUTION: When using indoors, make sure there is sufficient space to swing freely in all directions. A garage or spaces with vaulted ceilings are ideal. Be sure to eliminate all obstacles and restrictions prior to swinging. Pay special attention to doors and entrance areas. Do not swing the whip near these areas and take the necessary precautions to avoid contact with unsuspecting persons entering a space near the path of the Whip.

The one factor that makes it difficult for the golfer to accept the idea of the golf swing as a sling is that most slings are made of leather, rubber, or some other pliable material. The sling in golf consists of the arms and the extension of the arms namely the club shaft, but it is difficult for the golfer to accept the stiff metal shaft as a rope or sling. In fact, much is written about the effect of different kinds of shafts, the idea being that the stiffness at the shaft may in some way hold the secret to distance.

The real truth however, is that for the golfer to generate maximum centrifugal force in his golf swing, he must think of the club shaft as something soft and malleable, like a rope. One of the best ways to establish the feel of a good golf swing is to swing a small weight, tied to the end of a rope, in the same way that you would swing a golf club.

Instantly you will discover how necessary it is for your muscles to wait for that weight to swing back; and how your shoulders must turn in a way that gives time for that mass to get up to an optimal position for slinging; and how your legs must lead the downswing while your arms wait for the mass to accelerate; and how all of your movements must focus on that point on the ground that you are attempting to swing through; and how beautifully your head stays steady. You don't have to actually rig up this kind of apparatus to experience these feelings. You own an imagination -- use it. Simply imagine that the club shaft is a rope, and the clubhead is a weight hanging at the end of it. You are now going to sling that weight in such a way that it travels at maximum velocity at a select angle of decline along a path that leads momentarily straight to a distant target, with a part of that weight facing that target.

If you could possibly translate that imagery into movement, I guarantee that your golf game will improve immediately beyond your wildest dreams. It's not something that will happen overnight, but once it is grooved it will never go away again. Until you have reached that state however, you will not play the game up to your full potential. Until you totally familiarize yourself with feelings you will always be preoccupied with the uncertainty swing that can go haywire under the least kind of stress.

Background and Theory
Like so many aspiring golfers, my goal in life was to play on the PGA Tour. When it became clear that wasn't going to happen, I shifted my attention to the golf business and teaching. I dedicated myself to instruction and worked my way through the PGA of America program earning the status of Class "A" Professional. The years I spent teaching allowed me to observe first-hand the common problems that most amateurs experience with their golf swing. I noticed that the beginners as well as the accomplished players were being held back by the same basic problems.

Bobby Jones A close friend qualified for the PGA Tour and asked me to caddy for him. After years of teaching, I saw this as an opportunity to expand my knowledge and teaching ability by observing the best players in the world close-up, and accepted his invitation. While caddying on the PGA Tour, I paid close attention to every detail of how they all practiced and played. It was these observations that crystallized my understanding of the golf swing and what was needed to teach the athletic motion of a rhythmic, balanced swing.

I continued to teach during the off-season, incorporating the key elements of the top Tour Professionals golf swings into my teaching. I found that my students made the greatest immediate improvement by helping them to swing in rhythm while maintaining balance. My original teaching style was formulated around learning to control the golf club while swinging and attempting to hit a ball. Most amateurs, and many pros, are very concerned with positions of the golf club during the swing. They get lost in trying to achieve various positions they are convinced are necessary as they attempt to hit at the ball rather than swing through the ball. I took the focus away from "position" and their "hitting" action, put it squarely on their motion, and by doing so their results (and positions) greatly improved.

It was this shift in philosophy that led me to develop a tool that could help the player feel and learn the golf swing motion. I wanted a device that would provide golfers with dynamic feedback, helping them to feel their body swinging in a tour pro motion. After years of research, experimentation and collaboration I was confident I had the perfect tool. The Orange Whip Trainer is the swing aid and golf fitness product for a new generation. I believe it to be the best swing aid ever created and am confident that anyone that uses my product on a regular basis will agree.
