Video Golf Tip | Reverse Pivot Cure

Hello, my name is Bobby Cole and I am a Master Instructor here at the Jim McLean Golf School at the Doral Hotel and Spa. At a lot of our schools we have people coming to us and complaining that they are not hitting the ball very far. Many times the reason for this is that they have what we call a reverse pivot. They set up to the ball, good posture, and when they take the club back a lot of weight goes on to the left foot and they straighten the right leg. Then when they come through the reverse happens. Their weight goes to the right foot and off of the left foot. So you have your weight going back when you want it to be going forward with the ball. What you want is the opposite; you want your weight going in the same direction that you are hitting your shot. This will increase your power and distance a lot more. A good tip to achieve this is to get in to that good set up to the ball, turn your left foot out quite a long way, point it almost at the target, and then it is a lot more difficult for you to get that reverse weight. You will be able to shift your weight to your right foot a lot easier, clear your hips and go through into a good high follow-through with your weight moving in the right direction. This will definitely increase your distance and your consistency. That is a good 10 or fifteen yards further than the swing with the reverse pivot and finishing with your weight on your right foot. Thank you.
