5 Elements of the Perfect Golf Swing
My final definition is overall motion. You will remember there were two basics and three fundamentals, and they way they all go together provides the overall swing motion.
The swing is a flowing motion, not a collection of spare parts that make it look like a robot. Many times in my teaching I have seen people who understand what they have to do but could not coordinate, did not have the sporting skill to make the golf swing happen.
2 Basics and 3 Fundamentals of the Golf Swing
Well let's look at the two basics. They require discipline to learn. Anybody can learn to hold the club correctly and stand correctly.
The three fundamentals, well they require some discipline, knowledge of course, but also require coordination and skill.
The most difficult one to understand is the third one, the swing motion, at that level you are dealing with a coordination that is total. The disciple has to be there but you have to be able to coordinate it if you want to be a top quality ballstriker.
I can not put in what God left out. It is like looking at most people trying to juggle. Learning the fundamental is quite easy. You have to have the disciple and the coordination. Two balls is fairly easy but when you come to look at the overall swing motion you are putting in three balls.
You are trying to juggle leverage, balance and plane. It requires a little bit more talent. Not everyone is able to do this. But that is my definition of what happens in the swing motion. Understanding the disciplines and then having the coordination to do it at the level of your natural ability.
