Decelerate … Are you Sure?

Decelerate … Are you Sure?

As your club approaches impact, your arms need to slow down; they need to decelerate.  It sounds like the most ridiculous advice you will ever hear … but it’s correct. Think of using a hammer; as you swing the hammer toward the nail your arm will slow so that momentum is transferred to the hammer […]

A New Way to Consider Hip Turn

The correct movement of your hips is critical for helping you retain your posture during the swing, generate power and stay balanced.  Clearly quality hip movement is essential for a sound golf swing.

How to Turn your Upper Body

How to Turn your Upper Body

Most of the thought given to upper body turn relates to the amount it is turned.  The impression being that more is better.  That’s not necessarily true. While ideally you’ll have a good amount of upper body rotation in your backswing – for a full swing – it is important for your swing that your […]

Never lose your swing axis

Have you ever swung a small weight tied to a string around your fingers?  It spins easily until you look to change the spin angle.  It resists the change. Your golf swing is the same; the easiest way to swing on the correct path is to have a steady body movement. Really simplistically the golf […]

Slicing is a shot that is the bane of huge numbers of golfers.  Maybe you too. Suggestions for fixing a slice are far more numerous than the number of causes for your slice.  There is, in fact, only one reason you slice; the clubface is open to the path of the club at impact. This […]

Left Wrist Action … It’s not that Hard!

The illusion that your hands have to hinge, unhinge, release and roll makes it seem like hand action is really complex.  There is a little more to the movement of your right hand (for a right handed golfer), but the left doesn’t need to do too much at all. At address there is already an […]

Address v Impact: What’s the Difference?

Many players set up as they expect to be positioned at impact.  They shouldn’t because address position and impact position are very different. Just because address is a static position, that doesn’t make achieving a solid address position easy.  In fact it is the thing that we coaches spend the most time developing. Holding the club […]

Stop Flipping your Wrists

What do you think is the most common swing error?  I’m not talking about shot types, which would include hitting the ground before hitting the ball or catching the middle or top of the ball, but these shots are the result of this error. The club should swing around your hands and arms during the […]

Train your Right Arm

Train your Right Arm

The right arm movement in your golf swing is very similar to your right arm movement when you are throwing a ball.  Or at least it should be. If you have played any sports where you need to throw something, you will have an advantage over those who haven’t. One of the clues to throwing well, […]
