(If you are a lefty, reverse all the directions)
This is a big help to people who hang back, have a hip thrust at the ball, or have very inactive hips.
If you look at every great ball striker at every skill level, they basically initiate the downswing with lateral hip movement. The problem is most golfers don’t have the kinesthetic awareness to do this automatically.
So picture your left hip going to left field to start the downswing and that will create a movement that fits you just right.
Two points of clarification.
First, when I say left field, I mean to a point left of your target. Lee Trevino was great at this.
Second, If you think this makes you come over the top…or more clearly, if this does make you come over the top, your back swing is way too far to the inside.
