Here's 45 in 45 seconds.
00:07
I'm talking about a 45 degree angle.
00:09
It's a very good idea in your golf swing.
00:12
A great way to practice getting the club in the slot.
00:14
I've got a driver here,
00:16
which sits at a 45 degree angle,
00:17
but I grip down on it,
00:19
so I have a lot of the grip exposed.
00:22
I turn the club upside down,
00:23
and at this position,
00:24
I've got the grip end pointed down at the target line.
00:27
My club face is at a 45, my shaft's at a 45,
00:30
my left wrist is flat,
00:32
my right hand is on a 45.
00:34
I'm in great shape.
00:35
When I start down, I start down on 45,
00:38
coming right down, playing this way.
00:40
Not over it or under it,
00:41
but right straight down.
00:43
As I go through the golf ball, I come out at a 45.
00:46
And I can practice this back and through,
00:49
and practice getting in the slot.
00:52
There's 45 in 45 seconds.
