In the last 10 days, both in person and online, I have been exposed to mid to high handicaps who were told to be concerned whether they were one plane or two plane, CP or CF release, how much palmar flexion they were getting, purposeful hip sway going back to get the right leg in a more powerful position, getting the club perfectly parallel at the top (not short or past) and maintaining right arm connection down to the elbow through impact…yet the same group of people had no idea about the importance of…
1. Avoiding too much curve at the bottom of the spine at address (S curve)
2. A basic proper wrist set
3. Understanding that tilting 30* toward the target at the too is not a huge flexible turn.
4. Restricting the hip turn was the reason his lower back and hips hurt.
5. Swinging left with the hands steepens the shaft.
Wanna be decent at golf?
Learn a decent setup with an adequate, but not over done bend at the waist/hips, knees and tilt away from the target.
Learn to make a 50 yard wedge swing where you stop the backswing around left arm parallel to the ground. Have a free hip turn and decent wrist set with arms not low, inside and pinned across your chest…and start the downswing with any movement other than pulling the handle with your hands.
