Video Golf Tip | Body Motion in the Golf Swing
By Mike Lopuszynski

Hi, my name is Mike Lopuszynski. Your body motion can either positively or negatively influence what the golf club does in your swing. Here are two drills to help you make sure that you have the correct body motion. Number one is to put your golf club over your shoulders (parallel to the ground) and get set up to a golf ball on the ground. Now make a practice backswing and turn your shoulders 90 degrees. If you have done it correctly, the club should point eight to 10 feet on the outside of your target line. If you have done it incorrectly the club will either point down at the ball and you will have swung the club back too steeply or the club will point up to the horizon and you will have swung the club too flat. Now on your downswing, take the club and put it on your hips. Your first move in your downswing should be a slight hip bump to the left and the club should stay pointed to the right of your target. The bad way would be to start with an immediate turn. What this does is it sends the club on the outside or it makes you have that over-the-top move. So those are two drills that should help you swing the club better and enjoy your day at Doral.
