David Glenz's Swing Philosophy

By David Glenz

Build Your Swing

My swing philosophy is really based on three elements: 1) It is based on the movement of the golf club; 2) The structure and movement of the body; and 3) Timing between those two actions. Starting with the golf club we look at a couple of things. We want to see if a shallow inline movement through the area surrounding impact, very similar to a chipping swing, then to a vertical releasing movement. The body movement is also very simple; it is a little rotation of the body back and through.

Fixing Yout Timing

The third element is really the timing between these two movements. When the clubhead starts its movement the body starts its rotation back and when the club starts forward the body starts rotating through. So there is a blending between the movement of the clubhead and the movement of the body. What we are trying to get is more efficiency in everyone’s golf swing. Simpler and more efficient, that is the key to success.
