Video Golf Tip | Simple Swing Thoughts

Well, we might have left the practice tee for the golf course, but we have not left the swing map just yet. I work on the idea that there are two basics, three fundamentals but just one swing. And it is that swing motion that you bring here to the golf course. To understand how it works you have to learn to forget. Nobody every played good golf with their brain full of ideas of what they were going to do. It requires simple thinking. The disciplines of the golf swing should be learned on the practice tee. When you put it all together, you are talking about coordinating those three fundamental movements. My thoughts on this is that you maybe want one or two very simple thoughts. You can change them each day when you come to the golf course. Putting the swing together using a balance and leverage key is a simple as thinking that as you swing, you move right hip and your right elbow together as you hit the ball. A simple thought, but one that helps you blend the golf swing into a playable, usable golf swing here on the golf course. Now that is enough talk from me. Let’s see if I can put it all together and show you a good swing motion. That time I thought about coordinating the movement of my right hip and right elbow through impact. It is a good playing key, but I will not trust that every time I go out on a golf course. When I am on the range, I find my key for the day. Something simple, something effective and something that will get me around the golf course in the lowest possible number.

Proper Pivot Positions Since your body is bent over more in the one plane swing the shoulder plane resulting from the body pivot should be pointing to the ground just outside the golf ball.
Cure For Fat Shots: Address Use this pre-impact drill to maintain the correct distance from the ball at address
Counter-Balanced Golf Posture The one plane swing requires that you bend from the hips more than the two plane swing set up. This move is counter balanced by your buttocks going back more, thus maintaining your balance on the balls of your feet.
