Timing of Motion in the Golf Swing

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.

Bad Bunker Lies When faced with a bad bunker lie you need to close the clubface slightly so that you can dig into the bunker and get under the ball but most importantly don't try to do too much with the shot, all these shots will come out with over spin and release so you need to play to the fat part of the green
Selecting Woods For Tight Lies On Fairway When faced with a tight lie in the fairway a three wood might not be the ideal club because mentally you will try to lift the ball, use a five wood with more loft, you do not have to use the right club for the yardage you must select the right club for the situation
What Makes The Ball Curve One of the main reasons that balls curve in the air, slice or hook, is simply the amount of loft the club you are using has, the less the loft the greater the sidespin and the bigger the curve
