Video Golf Tip | Turning Your Body

Shoulder turn, it’s a concept you all think you should have and you think that is where your power emanates from. Everybody talks about the big shoulder turn for more power. Most of you are going to misuse this as a concept, it will get your swing very top heavy with a lot of over the top movement coming from your shoulders and upper arms. As an example, I can actually turn my shoulders 45 degrees and I don’t even stretch the muscles across my sides or in my lower back at all. Where we really want you focused is more with the center of your body. There are a couple of movements your body should make. The center of your body should move back into the right leg and forward into the left as you go back and forth with your swing. Additionally, the center should also rotate as it is moving back and then driving into the front leg. What you will notice when I do this is that my shoulders do rotate as I am coiling and unwinding. But as a concept let’s get you out of the shoulder area and get you using the center of your body as the coiling point of the swing. It is going to give you much better timing sense with your hands in relation to the body. As far as a drill practice this. Put your hand on your center, around your stomach area, and practice this rotating movement and make it a back and through movement, it is a key element to the golf swing and it is one that is going to provide more energy and better contact to your golf shots.
