Some golfers like to use a forward press before they start their swing. This could be with the putter or any other club in the bag. Paul D'Andrea has been experimenting with a forward press and is seeing some success. He wanted to hear my opinion on whether or not using a forward press to start the swing is a good idea.
I've been a PPGS user for the last 4 years and have played my best golf ever during this period. The problem which has always haunted me is getting the swing started. When I'm playing well everything seems like it's on auto pilot, but when I struggle I seem to get stuck at address not knowing how to start my swing.
I have recently been tinkering with using a forward press in my swing. I've started with the wedges and so far so good. Once I get into my pre-loaded heavy right position I press forward left side and hands and then I begin my backswing. The forward press makes it much easier for me to get into the toe up catcher's mitt position. The rest of the swing remains the same with a limited turn, vertical swing.
My question is, does a forward press work with PPGS? If yes, can you offer some positives, negatives, and tips (especially with the longer clubs) for using the forward press?
I've never been a fan of using a forward press. I just don't think it gives you the best opportunity for success. Having said that, if something is working for you and helping you get into the right positions, you may want to stick with it.
If adding a forward press helps you swing better, by all means try it. But, ultimately, I wouldn't recommend it.
Keep it vertical,
