Video Golf Tip | Timing of Motion in the Golf Swing

When you are playing golf one of the best areas to focus on is the timing of the motion. Where we keep some orientation of the golf club and how it relates to the body. Really a technical description of timing is matching the movement of the club with the movement of the body so that we can arrive back at the same point hitting strong solid golf shots time after time. That is part of my purpose of the set up with everything in front of me. I am going to feel my body rotation somewhere in the center. My hands are in front of that area fairly close and the clubface is in front of my hands. As the club starts to swing the body starts its movement into the right leg and rotating. You will notice the club is still in front of my body and as the club continues to swing the clubhead leaves and my hands are still out in front. I come back in front of myself at the impact position and at the trough swing the hands are still out in front of the body. So what I am doing is matching the movement of my body with the movement of the club. What you want to do is practice that half swing movement at half speed and get these two areas moving back and through together. As you get a sense of that timing you are going to be surprised about how lively the ball can get. Then to extend the swing back and through will give you a little more distance. Practice your timing without a ball and then practice it at half speed with a ball and then build up some momentum. You are going to hit more lively, solid and straighter golf shots.

Hybrid Chipping Do not always use a lob wedge to chip around the green, sometimes using a hybrid with a putting stroke will provide more control and creativity
Footwork In The Swing Keep your feet quite throughout the swing, eliminating sway and bad balance, just let the body take the feet where they need to go, left foot slightly inward on the backswing, right foot on its toe on at the finish with all your weight equally supported on a flat left foot
Downhill Lies Adjust your spine angle to the slope, find your new contact point for ball position, take less club and aim slightly to the left
