Keys to Improving Your Golf Swing
by Bob Marlow – PGA Golf Professional
Why doesn’t your golf swing seem to be improving? Great question.
Here could be some of the answers.
You are trying to keep your head too still laterally, rotationally and vertically. (Ruins naturalness)
You are trying to keep your eyes focused on the ball throughout the swing. (Ruins your ability to focus with your mind and eyes on how you are moving.)
Keep the weight on the inside of your right foot in your backswing, don’t sway. (Ruins your ability to shift your weight to the right in the backswing and turn the hips in the takeaway properly, making taking a full turn eventually with your upper body impossible.
Poor grip, too tight, wrong positions of the fingers and thumbs, gripping with the wrong fingers in each hand…if you grip with the last two fingers of the left hand it ruins wrist hinge and the same thing if you grip the club with the last two finger of the right hand. (Much of the natural motion in a golf swing comes from having the ability to produce a lot of wrists hinge at the top of the backswing.)
Hinging the wrists early in the takeaway… (Ruins your ability to create width and connection of the club and arms to the body while making the right arm fold too early in the backswing and too close to the body.)
Most golfers do not understand what proper posture is at address, they know it is important but don’t know how to get it. By videoing your swing with V1 software on my computer and comparing it to a golf swing like Adam Scott’s and utilizing graphics to measure angles, all of the above can be improved.
If you will diligently practice what I asked you do, in front of a mirror and on the driving range to develop the correct positions and motions, I can guarantee you will be very pleased with the results.
Adam Scott focuses primarily on grip, posture and setup, weight shift and following-through with very good balance in the finish position. Focusing on these keys will save you many years of time. Feel free to ask me any questions regarding this information and I will be pleased to show you any of the 20 videos of Adams swing in my V1 Digital Software Program.
