SO WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE FROM ALL THE OTHERS?

Conventional vs. Setup 4 Impact

So what is the difference between the conventional golf swing and the Setup 4 Impact method? 

The biggest difference you’ll find is in the way we Setup to hit a golf shot. The most important moment of the golf swing is IMPACT. By getting yourself setup in a position that is very close to your impact position, it becomes much easier to return the club with a square face and hit longer, straighter shots.

Setup 4 Impact brings your arms into the same alignment they’ll be in when you hit the ball to take out unnecessary timing and compensations, leaving you with an easy to repeat swing. Conventional golf instruction sets up with the hands hanging below the shoulders, which leads to a complicated series of motions to time the club face to square up through impact, all while trying to find room to get back to the ball as your arms straighten an average of four inches from setup.

Talk about difficult!

Setup 4 Impact brings you close to your impact position and allows you to simplify. Turn back, turn through, watch another great shot land on the green or in the fairway!

Similar methods vs Setup 4 Impact

How does Setup 4 Impact stack up against other similar methods?

Kirk Junge spent time studying many unconventional swings since 1996, along with studying the modern golf swing used by the top tour players in the world. Kirk took the feedback from his students and made changes to many of the top unconventional swings he previously taught, ultimately creating Setup 4 Impact. While Setup 4 Impact is influenced by the some of the previous methods he taught, it does not place any restrictions on golfers, allowing you to fully customize your swing to suit you.

Many other methods have you completely recreating another person’s swing in every way. Except that nobody ever achieved the results that copied player had. 

With Setup 4 Impact, you gain the advantages of setting up with your wrists in an uncocked (ulnar deviated) position which is exactly how they will be at impact, from there I teach you how to customize the grip, distance from the ball, stance width and many other factors to make it easier to swing on a single plane back and through for every golf shot you will play. Everything in Setup 4 Impact is about you and the way your setup position works. After all, it is YOUR golf swing!

is Bryson Dechambeau setup 4 impact?

Bryson has proven that a single plane golf swing can be competitive and powerful at the same time. Is he Setup 4 Impact?

Bryson calls his swing “Zero Shift”, but has also said that he sets himself up for impact. He has used the same terminology as Setup 4 Impact and his method is so close, we consider him part of the S4I family.

He sets himself close to his impact position at the start of his swing, bringing his hands up and down the same single plane throughout. Bryson’s swing is a great example of how to customize a Setup 4 Impact swing. His setup, backswing and impact position are exactly what a single plane swing should be, and he has found a grip and stance that suits his impact position perfectly. 

Minimalist v.s. Setup 4 impact

Before Setup 4 Impact, there was the Minimalist swing that impacted the ball on a single plane, which was tweaked and evolved into what we know as S4I today. This swing was created by Kirk Junge to help golfers begin simplifying their approach to the game and stop the dreaded slice that affects so many amateur players today.

What’s the difference between the Minimalist Swing and Setup 4 Impact?

We like to think of it like another customization of the S4I swing instead of a separate swing. It follows the same principles as Setup 4 Impact does, but sets the body in a position that further simplifies the backswing in an effort to help stop the “over the top” move that many golfers have. This swing is another way to improve your game, and has other customizations that available to help every golfer, regardless of ability.

It’s also essential to practice routinely to build up muscle memory and develop consistency in your swing. Finally, try to trust your swing and avoid overthinking during your shots.
