Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to this week’s tour analysis. I am rotary swing tour instructor, Chris Tyler, bringing to you this past weekend’s PGA tour champion Luke list who just kept off an awesome victory over at Tory pine. So congratulations to Luke. Luke has got some really, really solid lead hip and lead leg action down through the bottom of his swing, which is going to be our primary focus today. So as you saw last week, we focused in on Hudson Swafford’s trail leg, and his trail foot. This week, we’re gonna be focusing in on the lead leg and lead hip action. And later on in the week, we’re gonna show you guys a very simple little drill. That’ll help you get into a much more powerful position, much like you see outta Luke list and a really, really stable position, but also a safe position to boot. Let’s go ahead and get started.
Now, let’s do a little bit of talking about post up this week. So post ups a fun one, because it’s a move that provides a couple of different things for your golf swinging eye stability, and it provides a bunch of power. It also helps you protect and preserve your body when it’s done right now, a post-up move just so you understand, this is just simply defined as the lead leg, working to a passively straight position and the hips opening up to about 35 to 45 degrees. Now this angle on the right hand side of the screen is a very, very good example of how well Luke uses his lead hip and his lead leg in his swing. So after he makes his move in transition, his lead hip is gonna move back up and away from where the golf ball is. Watch this right here. Okay.
You see how his lead hip is moving back up and away from where the ball is. We always want to be moving in the exact opposite direction of the club. Why? Well, because if my hip is moving back up and away the club’s going down there, that’s gonna add thrust, right? Same thing with us jumping up outta the ground. When we have our drivers or three woods in our hands, right? For flying up outta the ground, then the club is gonna be working down harder. Now with irons, you don’t need to a whole lot of ground force because we’re trying to maintain a level of balance done through here, a level of stability. But when we get longer clubs in our hands, it’s very important that we utilize ground force. Because again, it’s a great way for you to be able to add some acceleration to it.
Now I know a lot of you at home are probably thinking to yourself, well, Chris, Luke has got that trail foot up off the ground. And you just told us not to have it up off a ground with that Hudson Swafford video that you just released. Okay. Let’s take a step back and understand one thing here. Okay? I’m not here to bash Luke scaling by any means. Okay? I’m never in a tour analysis video, I’m never gonna bash anybody. I’m here to just show you guys the things that we like about the player’s swings. And so yes, he does have his right foot kicked off the ground. But what he doesn’t do is cause a fault with it. He doesn’t cause a fault where their hips are coming forward, which we can clearly see because his head and his chest aren’t moving vertically. He doesn’t cause a fault where his hips get pushed out past neutral joint alignment.
Now what’s neutral joint alignment. Well that’s where the lead ankle, the lead knee and the lead hip socket would be stacked on top of one another. And he certainly doesn’t have his hips spin out. He has great control even with this right foot being a little bit up off the ground. So if you look at it okay, as he is released in the club and you watch that button on the backside of his lead, but there you can see that there’s not a lot of rotation from the hips happening right through here. Why? Well, because we’re stalling the body out, right? The hips go through this really strong acceleration phase and then they decelerate and then the hands and arms pass in front. Okay. That’s how you produce a lot of efficiency and a lot of speed in the swing. Now, amateur golfers tend to struggle with this movement because why?
Well, if you look at it from this phase on perspective on left hand side of the screen is that this is where amateur golfers tend to do things pretty well. They get their weight transferred onto their left side. But from here, this is where we start getting on the gas with the arms and the shoulders a little bit too soon, we start actively trying to move from the upper body. Why? Well, because it feels really fast, right? It feels like we can get that club moving really fast. But if you haven’t finished off the movement with what you’re doing with your lead hip and your lead leg, then you’re gonna make it impossible for you to be able to be safe. You’re gonna make it impossible for you to stop the body from rotating. And you’re gonna make it impossible for you to put the max speed point down here where it matters the most.
So what we wanna do is we wanna make the post up, move happen after transition, okay. And transition the way that you’re gonna gonna think about this is when we get, you know, a bulk of the pressure moving over to our, towards our lead ankle and how we’re gonna make the post move happen is by driving our lead ankle into the ground, pushing into the ground is gonna do what well, it’s gonna force the ground to push back. If you do that and you move your lead hip back up and from where the golf ball is, and you do that while keeping your chest down, you will now provide a way of stability. You will also provide a great way for you to put more speed down here. Now, another big thing that some of you might have caught here just a moment ago is we need to keep our head and chest down.
When we post up now automatically as humans, we, we hear that term up and we feel like we, the whole body should be moving up. Watch his head very closely. There’s no vertical movement from his head or his chest. Okay. Now, if you look at his lead hip, it’s moving up and away. Okay. If you can make that happen, then you’re gonna have a great source of stability, a great source of speed, and if very, very safe position for you to be able to deliver the club through the hitting area. All right. So you did it. You made it to the end of this week’s tour analysis. Thank you very much for staying tuned. As I said to you guys in the opener, I’m going to be releasing a video later this week that shows you a simple little drill on how to make the post up, move happen for your own golf swings.
And so if you are not yet subscribed to the channel and you make sure that you get notification for when that video does come out, please do. So now, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to post those up. Let’s just keep it lighthearted, right? It’s I know it’s a big, bad world of, of internet keyboard warriors. But again, this analysis is not designed to bash what players are doing.
This is an analysis, just to show you some of the key parts of their swings that we really like. And in fact, Luke list has got an absolutely sensational golf swing from beginning to end, same thing with Hudson Swafford. And so for those of you, that really haven’t got a chance to dive into our program. If you wanna see the dead drill, the three core videos of the dead drill so that you can start, aren’t getting to work on, you know, how to move your body properly through a, a backs swing into transition into post-up just like you’re seeing here on the screen today.
