Today’s video golf tip focuses on the full golf swing and specifically on the “swing shape”. If you have a consistent swing shape, then you can expect to hit the ball more consistently overall.
Step 1: Start with the golf club in the air and make some swings around your body. This will allow you to feel more rotation and will create a more consistent swing shape.
Step 2: Slowly bring the club down as you continue to swing on a consistent plane until your swing path brings you low enough to hit the ball.
Frequent Swing Problems Among Many Golfers:
- Do you currently start with the club too inside? This forces you to lift the club high to correct and causes you to come over the top. RESULT – Not a consistent swing shape.
- Do you lift the club without turning right away? This results in you needing to drop the club underneath and inside. RESULT – Not a consistent swing shape.
