Video Golf Tip | Sequence of Pivot in the Swing

Let’s have a look at the pivot and the sequence of the pivot. The pivot is the rotation of your body parts around your set up angles. So that would be the rotation of your shoulders around your spine, your hips around your legs, and then your knees around your stance. The sequence should always go something like this: I’m going to hold the club across the front of my shoulders, as I start back, my shoulders start to turn around the axis of my back first of all, they get to a point where they can’t go any further without dragging my hips around, then my hips will drag my left knee across. This will all be against the resistance of the right knee so I’ve created a tremendous stretch on the backswing. That tension sets up a stretch reflex in the sequence on the downswing of left knee back to where it came from. Pulling the hips around, hips swinging the shoulders around which is going to accelerate that club so it orbits around our body creating lots of centrifugal force and clubhead speed. The sequence of your pivot creates the clubhead speed. Turn the shoulders followed by the hips, then the knee, then the knee, hips and shoulders all the way through to the finish. So there’s a simple pivoting exercise that always starts with getting your set-up angles right first with your posture. Do that pivoting exercise and you’ll improve your consistency and distance off the tee.
