Tips and Drills:
Shallowing the Club
Markus shares a simple drill and feeling that can help you shallow the club in transition!
"Feel like your laying the club down."
The deWiz Steepening/Shallowing measurement is one of the most impactful data points provided by deWiz, but also quite difficult to accomplish for the average golfer.
The measurement itself is taken by looking at the rotation of the lead wrist through transition. A positive value indicates a steepening of the club, and a negative measurement indicates shallowing. Our data shows that the majority of professionals and high-level amateurs will experience between 1-3° of shallowing - as measured from the deWiz.
The Drill: As is the case with making any swing changes, the best way to start is by really exaggerating the move. By taking the club back on a steeper trajectory, your hands and body can work to then feel like you're laying the club down through transition. Practice this without a ball - or even without a club - to develop the muscle memory!
