Video Golf Tip | Balance In The Golf Swing

The fundamental of balance in the golf swing. What’s good balance? How does balance work efficiently? Well, many teachers have got different opinions on this, but I’d like to give you my preference, my neutral area if you like for good balance. It’s a combination of shifting the weight and rotating the weight and to do that correctly from the address position. I’d like you to look at some key movements in the right leg. As I move away from the ball my body turns around the right hip and the right leg maintains the position of the angle that was set in address. As my shoulder turns and rotates around that angle, you’ll notice my weight has moved both rotationally and laterally into my right side. Now from top of the backswing the weight then moves across in a lateral action and then rotates around the left side into the through swing. That I believe is good balance. Please understand that to shift the weight and forget to turn promotes a sway in both directions. If you just turn and forget to shift, the favorite reverse pivot. The issue of balance is important because good balance can add to a golf swing and bad balance will subtract from it. It’s my belief that if you can use your weight correctly in a golf swing you’ll add to the power created by the leverage motion and make a more efficient movement. To add more consistent power and ball striking to your golf.
