How to Create a Repeatable Golf Swing

Develop a Repeatable Golf Swing

One thing I would like to point out is that every golf book ever written, any golf lesson every given, is all predicated on one thing, that you come to me with a repeatable golf swing. If not then I have to work with you on getting a repeatable golf swing.

Usually the scenario of a lesson goes something like this. A person tells me that he has been slicing the ball. I say that is fine and they hit several shots for me. One shot goes here, one shot goes over here, a couple over there and then all of a sudden he will slice one and he will turn to me and he will say ‘that is what I have been doing’ and I have to scratch my head little bit, and I do not want to be flip when I say this, but really what I say to them is if they can tell me which swing they are going to use next I will tell you which way the ball is going to go. Why? Because that person definitely does not have a repeatable golf swing.

Swing the Golf Club Straight Down the Line

So what do we have to do, we have to go back and get them to where that swing is repeatable and hopefully get that club going straight down the line and straight down the target instead of coming across and going every which way. What I do is give people a drill to hopefully fix what their swing is doing. I try to get them in the four positions. Position one, position two, three, four. Take their club straight down the line and hopefully do it over and over again.

Golf Swing Homework

With my students I give them homework. Their homework is 20 swings a day in the backyard, any way they want to do it, they do not even have to be hitting a ball. But as long as they are swinging that golf club when they come back to me they are starting to give me things that I can work with. So if you want to become a better golfer you need to establish that repeatable golf swing and you need to get out in that backyard and do your homework.
