Swing Fix

We all have swing flaws, but no two swing flaws are the same, which is why it doesn't make sense to fix them all the same way. The plans below are examples of how golfers with various swing flaws might train differently. Our Swing Fixes don't catch everyone, but they catch over 90% of main swing flaws. How do we know what plan is best for you? Watch our videos below and see which one looks familiar or send us your video at rypgolf@gmail.com.

Before you begin fixing your swing, mind the 10 Commandments of Swing Fix Rypstick training.

  1. You can swing Rypstick inside or outside, just make sure you have enough room. Taking out your wife's favorite chandelier is not a good idea.
  2. Warm up first - You'll get more out of your training and be less prone to injury.
  3. Support your body
  4. Eat right - Protein helps build muscle so get lots of it. Fats and carbs are also key. If weight loss is your goal, eat healthier foods like fruits and veggies. Basic, but important.
  5. Sleep right - Sleep is when your body does the heavy lifting of neural adaptation. You simply can't get much out of working out if you don't sleep well.
  6. Exercise - It's a good idea to supplement your Rypstick training with a workout routine. We provide them free, but only if you do them :)
  7. When working out - Do power first, speed second (Rypstick), then speed/strength (mix), then non dominant training.
  8. Swing with intensity - Speed gains come from maximum exertion. If you not able to do that you should question if Rypstick training is right for you. If you're swinging at home, crank the music, enjoy the intensity. Think about the bombs you'll hit in a couple months!
  9. Track your progress - The goal here is to change your swing, not add speed. Once your swing is decent, move back to the Fast Track or combo your Swing Fix Training with the Fast Track Training. 
  10. Start with Protocol 1. Most Swing Fix protocols only have 1 track any way. 
  11. If you feel an overuse injury setting in take it easy for a few days and do your best to eliminate the offending drill.

THE SLICER

70 percent of golfers slice, particularly high handicappers and beginners. Slicing is embarrassing and taxing physically and mentally. Your disfunction is emotionally taxing on others too, because no one wants your banana balls. Fortunately, you don't have to slice because its fairly easy to fix. Saying goodbye to your out to in path should be priority number one. With the help of the Chiliwacker and some basic path drill protocols you can quickly fix your swing path and your face shut. Because this is a condition that afflicts so many golfers we have 2 protocols for you.

THE CASTER

This is golf, not fishing. So stop casting it. This plan focuses on the player that casts the club, resulting in high launch angles, poor low point control, and loss of distance. If you sweep the ball off the turf without any divots this is you! Make sure you start with the slice protocol first if you’re also a slicer, as some casting may go away as you lower your plane (fix your slice).

FLAT SHOULDER PLANER

A flat shoulder plane on the backswing can rob you of power and potentially lead to your head raising up as you swing back. Often this can be traced to physical mobility issues or childhood trauma, but drills that combat your old motor learning patterns will certainly facilitate this change.

SWAYER

Your hips don't lie. Your legs sway on the backswing. Some people call this the "Rock and Block" because you probably block the ball to the right and have no control of the face or low point. Every golfer you play with sees your crazy leg action and can't stand it. Learn the moves to eliminate the sway and restore stability in your swing. Eliminating a sway can initially cost you some power, but with the right training you'll get your power back and have better control during your swing.

SLIDER

You slide your hips through the shot like an aging Rickey Henderson. As a result, your legs do little for you in terms of rotation and power, which is unfortunate since the legs are the engine of most good swings. You need help learning how to get a basic pivot going. It’s not a sexy way to begin your swing work, but it’s probably prudent. Eat your veggies and learn to move your pelvis properly with this set of drills!

THE GUILLOTINE PLANER (AKA "STEEP")

The guillotine plane is the plane golfers swing on when the down-the-line video shows the clubshaft bisecting the neck. If you're on this plane you're metaphorically dead since you have little chance of controlling your drives. Find a healthier plane so you can live long and prosper.

THE GOAT JUMPER (EARLY EXTENSION)

The technical name (defined by TPI) is early extension, which means losing your spine angle at a rapid rate in the downswing. On video, it looks like you jump out of your posture at impact, hurdling goats on the way off the tee box. This is one of the most difficult problems to fix, but we’ve got a plan for you. There is hope for Goat Jumpers that aggressively practice the right set of drills.

THE CHICKEN WINGER

Put away those Chicken Wings, it's not time for March Madness. If you're a Chicken Winger you probably have a combination of faults that cause your chicken wing, but most are tied to your ribcage movement and swing plane. We’ll talk about how you can get your ribcage to move up and out of your way so you don’t look (and feel) like a member of the avian family post impact.

NO VERT

Did you know the vertical jump may the biggest predictor of how far you hit the golf ball? Particularly for golfers in their 20’s and 30’s. Unfortunately, you don't use your legs well at all. As a result, you’re missing out on a massive amount of power from your legs as well as the benefits of an upward attack angle. Learn to use the ground and gain speed quickly!

THE HARPOONER

You are a rare beast, the player with too much lag and a good plane. It’s likely you have fast hips, poor upper body strength, and a strong grip. This covers a majority of weak, but relatively fast junior golfers. You probably hit the ball fairly long already, but most likely you hook it and block it right as well. We’ll give you a recipe for getting better control without losing power. It’s all about applying width to your downswing!

THE HOOKER

You hit massive out of control hooks. They look cool to middle schoolers because they curve so much, but then they go out of bounds and hit trees, houses, and protected water fowl. Join the Audubon society and stop torpedoing the ponds with your diving death daggers. Fix your path and your face with some backswing, downswing, and path work.
