In the takeaway create space between the training rod and Red ball(flattening the lead wrist, squaring the club face) the space should be maintained throughout your swing motion. No contact to the Red ball provides positive feedback controlling the club face resulting in more consistent ball striking Contact to the Ball will provide feedback that the club face is open causing fat, thin, snap hooks and massive slices. The Trail Wrist Setting Used for chipping, pitch shots, and full shots this setting focuses on using the trail wrist to create the correct hinge and maintain lag into impact. The rod and ball will start bent off the trail wrist based on the length of your swing and the amount of hinge you want to create. The Red ball will touch the trail wrist and keep touching throughout the swing providing positive feedback improving distance and accuracy. No contact to the Red ball on the takeaway provides instant feedback that the club is rolling inside opening the club face, causing big left and right misses.
