Two Keys for More Athletic Golf Swing
Since the Cooper’s Golf Park driving Range closed, I moved my golf lesson and golf club sales and repair business to North Grand Prairie where I have and in-door/outdoor studio facility in which I am able to use hi-speed video, a launch monitor, and the latest technology, a Bodi-Trak Pressure Mat, which helps students with utilizing the ground forces much more effectively in their golf swing and improve all aspects of their golf game fast. I have a modest Inventory of new and used golf equipment and still perform all types of club repair. I recently installed a synthetic turf putting green, where I am able to help students with improving their putting stroke.
Tiger Woods has or had before his accident; a wonderful golf swing based on many years of perfecting it. If you Google “Tiger Woods on the Range at the Memorial Tournament”, you can watch him warm up with various clubs and see his routine in the set up and execution of the swing, over and over. What are the take-aways?
Notice the posture, how his knees are flexed, his hips and glutes are angled back and up away from the target line, upper body bent out over the shot, but with the back and neck fairly straight. Your Weight needs to be favoring the balls of your feet to activate your legs and glutes which is what also straightens the back, neck, and head alignment.
Most golfers do not begin to bend enough in the hip area, Adam Scott shows this hip tilt very distinctly in a video online and states, the core is where the real power comes from.
Conclusion: By videoing your swing from a down-the-line view and comparing it to Tiger’s or Adam Scott’s swing, you can improve your posture and club shaft angle at address.
Notice the right elbow from down the line view as he hinges the right wrists back and then the right elbow is in front at impact.
Most the body motion comes from rotating your core to the right in the backswing, then the shoulders can follow the core, creating at least 90 degrees of total rotation.
Now, here is an extremely important key to making your right arm work properly in the golf swing…As you take the club away, hinge the right wrist back, just like you are going to shoot a basketball foul shot. This forces the right elbow to move to your left, keeping it close to the left arm and more in front of your body which is where it should be in the approach to the ball (in front of your right hip, not behind it). This will help you to retain your wrist cock longer and then produce lots of compression, on the golf ball, as you release the club head through the ball.
It boils down to hips bent plenty at address and the right wrist hinged back to control the right arm in the take-away.
You can download V1 video analysis software app for free on your cellphone, iPad of PC and then if you choose “Marlow’s Golf School” as the instructor and send me videos of you golfing with various swings, putting strokes, chipping, and pitching motions, I can send you my analysis of the same for a nominal fee, based on the agreed upon time and expense in doing so.
