Video Golf Tip | Swing Map: Balance

My next definition is in the fundamental of balance, understanding balance is true in all sports and more so in our game of golf. What am I looking at with balance? Well it is quite simple. How you use your ankles, your knees, your hips and your shoulders fall together to form the balance of the golf swing. It can be viewed from a face-on perspective or a target line perspective. Looking at this fundamental from the face-on position, I am trying to ensure that you understand how you shift your weight from side to side and how you rotate your weight back and through is a very important combination.
