Video Golf Tip | Club Path and Plane

To develop a consistent golf swing, you need to have the proper path of the golf club, hands and arms in the backswing and the proper path of the golf club hands and arms on the forward-swing. To do this, when I set up to the golf ball, if you look at my address position my hands are right below my shoulders. When I swing the club back my hands should stay underneath my shoulders the entire swing back and then as I swing down my hands come back underneath my shoulders. As I swing the club through they stay under my shoulders into the forward-swing. If your hands swing under your shoulders the entire swing you will have the proper path going back and coming through to develop a consistent impact position. Many golfers that I teach, sometimes on the backswing they go outside and you can see that my hands are outside my shoulders. Or on the backswing they come too much in and once again my hands are inside my shoulders and not below them. Another fault that I see with golfers when they start down is over the top where the hands get outside the shoulders, or they drop too much below. If you can learn to keep the hands underneath the shoulders the entire swing you are going to have the proper path to develop a consistent impact position. So let me demonstrate one for you.
