Video Golf Tip | Waggle Before You Swing

My name is Bobby Cole and I am a Master Instructor here at the Jim McLean Golf School at the Doral Hotel and Spa. Today I would like to talk to you about the waggle in the golf swing. A lot of time at our golf school we see people who come here and sort of freeze over the ball. When they address the ball they stop moving. They freeze over the ball and then they snap the club back quickly. This promotes a very difficult, jerky swing which is very hard to time. What you will see on television a lot of times with most of the touring pros as they take their set up you will see they are always moving. They have a little waggle, some of them do four waggles and look at the ball and the hole, and others do just one or two waggles. The purpose of this is to get yourself very relaxed. You have to relax the grip pressure and all the big muscles so that you can get consistent timing. This is a very important thing to do even when you practice; we want to get into that same routine every time you hit the golf ball. You do not want to on the range take three waggles, look at the target and hit the shot then get on the golf course do one little waggle and go ahead and hit it. You want to do the same routine over and over again so that your game can go from the practice tee over to the golf course. Thank you.
