Nosler focuses his full swing teaching on a simple approach to three key full swing fundamentals. The cause and effect of path and club face combinations along with the proper impact position.
Path and Clubface Laws:
The golf ball starts its initial line by the club face (up to 90% on a driver at least 75% responsible with every other club).
- Club face starts the ball
- Club path curves the ball
The club face must be open to the target line to hit a draw.
For example: Joe is hitting a 5iron. He is aiming at the 200 yard sign on the driving range. His clubface at impact is 3 degrees open to the target line at impact and his swing path is 5 degree out to the right of the target line (right handed golfer). In this example every shot MUST draw! I learned this from my childhood instructor Jerry Mowlds about 15 years ago before we ever had launch monitors to back this theory up. His theory sounded strange at the time but boy was he ever right! Thank god I was getting my information from him!
Club Face Rotation: Rotation of the club face during impact has nothing to do with curvature. Rotation squares the face!
A few examples:
Bill's clubface is 2 degrees closed to the target line (flag) and his swing path is 2 degrees to the left of the flag. His ball starts left and the flight is dead straight but stays to the left of the flag (Pull).
Mike's clubface is 2 degrees closed to the target line (flag) and he swings 5 degrees left of the flag. The ball starts well left and curves way to the right (this is what is known as a pull slice).
Chris's clubface is 2 degrees open to the target line (flag) and his swing path is 5 degree to the right of the target line. This results in a strong draw or a hook.
Brian's clubface is 1 degree closed to the target line (flag) but his swing path is 4 degrees right of the target line. This results in a shot that starts left the target and hooks way left (Pull hook).
Jeff's clubface is 3 degrees open to the target line (flag) but his swing path is 1 degree to the left of the target line.
This results in a shot that starts right and fades (push fade).
Where it starts " Noslers specialty...etc leave all of that.
Nosler's specialty maybe in the instruction of the short game. His two keys to putting improvement are:
- Developing the ability to start the ball rolling on the proper line
- Mastering the art of green reading
If you can learn how to start the ball on the proper line the only thing standing in your way of making a lot of putts is being able to read greens properly. Until a player can consistently start the ball on his/her intended line they have virtually no chance for success.
Nosler loves to teach the wedge game. He helps golfers improve their distance control by controlling their trajectory. Learning how to control your trajectory on wedge shots will immediately increase your distance control. Learn the knock-down shot!
Nosler does not teach gimmicks or secrets. Just the proven fundamentals from the champions of the game...how to practice...how to play.
