The SKLZ Smart Glove does a couple of things, especially in the short game, putting, chipping, any type of pitch shot where I need that firm left wrist to create that solid strike through the ball. The killer on this is obviously that scoop move, where I'm staying back on my back foot, and I break down that left wrist and that club head passes on my hands.
The plastic insert on the back of the wrist, keeps that left wrist flat, so that you have to use your body and this whole triangle to get through past impacts. My body stops and I start breaking this down, that's going to start digging into your wrist a little bit. So it'll stop the club from going. So what I'm looking for is getting this left wrist to stay flat and move my body through impact. There are couple of features of SKLZ Smart Glove that are really helpful. The black grip guide shows you where to put it in your hands. I don't want that too much in the fingers. I don't want to way up into the palm.
So I get this in the right spot right here, you can see that sits right into that black guide. Plastic inserts, pretty easy to take out, and then you can take some swings, with the glove itself. For the Smart Glove, whether I'm hitting chip shots, pitch shots. The chip shot, I'm just getting the shaft to keep moving forward with my body, instead of the body stopping, and the club head passing my hands. Same thing with the pitch motion, I'm looking to get the body moving through, the body moves the handle on the club head through, instead of the body stopping and the wrist breaking down. I want that left wrist staying really flat through impact. Smart Glove also helps us on our full swing.
As what the short game, I don't want that scooping motion through impact. Yet, everything golf, we get destroyed by that left wrist breaking down on the club head, flipping past impact. So with this allows me to feel, is this handle forward rotation. That left wrist should be flat right there. So I'll make a bunch of little punch shots, just kind of moving forward, getting the handle the lead, and then the forearms to rotate over. And that carries over into the full swing, where I get all the way over through that finish
