Peel Technique

Orange Peel

Technique – The Orange Peel

Standard Training Position:
Feet should be placed shoulder width apart in the center of the Orange Peel with the white line bisecting the middle of both feet. Assume a comfortable, balanced starting position using an Orange Whip or a golf club of your choice.

Standard Training Position
Swing Fault #1: Slice or Pulled Shot
(Outside to Inside path)

Set your feet forward so that your toes are at the edge of the Peel. With toes raised your center of gravity moves back and toward your heels. Your upper body and spine angle is raised to a more upright position which in turn will naturally flatten the swing plane.

Swing Fault #1
Swing Fault #2: Hook or Blocked Shot
(Inside to Outside path)

Set your feet backwards so that your heels are at the edge of the Peel. With heels raised your center of gravity moves forward and toward your toes. Your upper body and spine angle is lowered toward the ground to a flatter position, which in turn naturally creates a more upright swing plane.

Swing Fault #2
Swing Fault #3: Difficulty Releasing Body into Finish

Set your feet so the right edge of the right foot is at the right edge of the Peel, while the inside of the left foot is at the edge of the inner circle. Make sure the white line bisects the center of both feet in this position. Your center of gravity shifts toward the left side with the majority of your weight resting on the left foot. This position will help you fully release the club, your weight and rotate through to the target.

Swing Fault #3
Swing Fault #4: Difficulty with Back-swing Full Turn

Set your feet so the left edge of the left foot is at the far left edge of the Peel, while the inside of the right foot is at the edge of the inner circle. Make sure the white line bisects the center of both feet in this position. Your center of gravity shifts toward the right side with the majority of weight resting on the right foot. This position will help you achieve a full turn and the proper “loading” of your weight and upper body during backswing, promoting proper weight shift and rotation.

Swing Fault #4

Caution: The edges of your feet should never extend beyond the further most edges of the peel or the edges of the inner circle.
