The more tilt you have at address and at impact, the more room you have for your arms to get in front of you and the club to release properly.
When I say tilt, I mean spine tilt behind the ball. Most amateur golfers don’t have enough tilt behind the ball at address or at impact.
Now here is the kicker that makes it so hard…and getting really good at golf so hard…and this is why I bring up this complicated concept.
When creating this tilt at impact, you must also shift your weight to the left and turn your shoulders at the proper angle or you will be hanging back, be stuck…or both.
A golf swing is a complicated combination of movements. You cannot teach one movement in a vacuum and this is why implementing feels is so much more effective than positions.
Let me preface this by saying many of my posts involve swing theory and not necessarily something you are literally supposed to do. I throw out tons of concepts and ideas hoping to reach each of you and help you with your game.
The point of today’s post is two fold. Discussing swing theory is fine for some people and not for others. What is important is that you never implement one movement or position.
YOU TRY AND FIND A FEEL THAT CREATES THE COMBINATION OF MOVEMENTS YOU WANT.
Getting outside help is very helpful as long as they help you search for this feel that helps you get better.
