Left Hip Bump & Turn

August 5, 2015

Struggling with balance, power or shot control?  The answer could lie – in part – with learning how your hips work in the swing.  Improving your lower body turn can make all the difference to the power and control you have with your shots.  It doesn’t matter whether that shot is a chip or a drive, the way your lower body moves is similar; it is only the amount of movement which changes.

In a previous video I’ve talked about your back belt loop being the centre of your hip turn.  When viewed from the front a centred hip turn has your hips sliding slightly toward the target at the beginning of the downswing and then turning.  This movement occurs almost simultaneously.

Practice the feeling of the left hip bumping toward the target and then turning as I show in this video and you’ll find your upper body turn and arm swing are likely to improve as well.
