What is Transition?
Transition means the change between backswing and downswing. deWiz™ transition compares your backswing to the start of your downswing. If the start of your downswing plane is above the plane of your backswing your Transition is considered “Over-the-top”. If your downswing plane is below your backswing plane your Transition is considered “Under-the-top”.
If the start of your downswing plane matches your backswing plane, your Transition is considered “On plane”.
The deWiz™ app voice feedback will let you know your Transition numbers. E.g. -2 means that your Transition was 2 cm Under-the-top and a positive number signals an Over-the-top transition. When you transition on plane, deWiz™ voice feedback will indicate “on plane transition.” You numbers are also visible in your deWiz™ app.
How can Transition help my golf?
If you have a slice problem, deWiz™ Transition feature is a tremendous tool. If you have a slice problem, you will likely find out that your Transition numbers are positive, indicating an Over-the-top Transition. This means that your downswing plane is above your backswing plane and this is the most common cause of a slice. The key for you is to get your deWiz™ Transition numbers from positive to negative. -5 to -10 are good numbers to strive for!
How should you use deWiz™ Transition to overcome your slice?
Watch the Transition video at the top of this article, or follow the deWiz™ slice cure program located under the transition settings in the app.
How do I set my Transition values?
You set your values on the Features slide titled “Transition”. Here you have an upper (max) and a lower (min) limit. Think of the limits as a slot, but normally the deWiz™ Transition is used to either cure a slice or hook problem. In that case you only set one of the parameters and then you should think of the limit as a barrier that you must swing beneath or above.
