Video Golf Tip | The Circular Arm Motion

When you talk about putting your golf swing all together, you have your hands on the golf club correctly, and you feel that you’ve got a good stance and posture, then we want to think about what those arms need to be really doing. Remember, they need to make a circle. They need to swing up above your right shoulder and finish up above your left shoulder. I’m going to demonstrate with a head cover, this is a great drill you can do as a warm-up exercise. Just get good setup, swing it up above your right shoulder and finish up above your left, back and forth. Notice how my arms and body are working together. They’re swinging up above my right shoulder and up above my left. As soon as you’ve gotten a feel for this, put a club in your hand and do the same thing. Get that good grip on there, take your setup and aim at a tee. If you get it to hit where you hit the tee each time hitting a ball’s going to be a piece of cake. Swing it up above your right shoulder and finish up above your left. The whole goal here is getting some consistency, it doesn’t have to perfect. But we need to try to feel like we’re doing the same thing each time. Swing it up above the right, finish up above the left. Let it be free and let it work with your body. That arm swing is worth a lot of power and you need to get it where you feel very comfortable swinging your arms in the golf swing.

Varying Shot Height To vary the height of your shots just make a basic adjustment to your ball position and follow through
Hip Turn in the Golf Swing In a one plane motion the arms, shoulders and hips all turn around in a circle as opposed to a slide and hip bump in the two plane swing.
Short Simple Swing The one plane swing allows for more control and consistency without losing power by shortening your swing.
