Video Golf Tip | Lee Trevino's Consistent Swing

When Lee Trevino burst onto the scene of golf most people thought he would not last, he was a flash in the pan because his swing would just not hold up. That proved to be very wrong as Trevino proved to be one of the really great ball strikers of all time. Up in the same category as the Ben Hogan, at the very, very top. A couple of things that I want to mention about Trevino's swing that I think can help anybody, one was his right side. He went forward and straight through and carried down through the shot. Trevino really stayed down and went forward where he could keep the golf club tracking with his right arm so he had his right arm and the club in line for a long time because his right side carried through so far, down and forward. It is almost like you are chasing the ball with your right shoulder. Pretty good swing thought. The other thing that Trevino did that was very interesting is that he wanted to copy the ball flight of Hogan but he could not do it with a normal stance. What he did was aim way to the left. What this allowed him to do was to get the club a little bit more out in the backswing and then drop it in to what I call the slot. This is a real slot swing, dropping it in right in here, put it right on line and then he would sort of push the ball out to the target. Lots of people do really well from an open stance because it makes you drop that club more to the inside to hit out to your target. You may not go out as far left as Trevino but as a practice drill it is great for learning to get the club back to the inside.

Cure For Heel Shots: Posture Maintain a constant posture throughout the entire swing so that your body does not move towards the ball during the swing and cause the heel of the club to make contact with the ball
Putting: Seeing the Line Look up and down at least twice to burn an impression of the line to the target in your mind
The Two Extremes of Release There are two parts to the release, one is the arms turning over and the other is the body turning, we need both of these to release correctly but most of us tend to over emphasize one of them
