Video Golf Tip | Swing Map: Leverage

As we continue our way around the Swing Map, understanding the definitions, I am going to move on to one of the three Fundamentals. It’s called leverage, and it does not matter how you pronounce it, all that matters is how you do it and how you understand it. Leverage is how you use the wrist joints and the arms together in the golf swing. They produce a setting of the wrists in the backswing and a radius of the arms. Some golfers like Colin Montgomery keep the radius and use a great deal of wrist hinge at the top. Others like Tiger Woods have the same arm radius but don’t use so much hinge at the top of the swing. The move down into the downswing is very important because here is the lag angle. The way which the shaft and the left arm hold the angle coming down into impact is very important. The release of the angle coming back into the ball, impact pressure, is maybe the most important part of the golf swing. Then from there on how you swing through into the finish and relax into the finish are all parts of the leverage process. Understanding the fundamental of leverage will be key in your understanding of how to progress around the Swing Map.
