Video Golf Tip | Body Turn Through Impact
By Ed Ibarguen

I have a lot of discussions with my students about having that shaft leaning forward at impact. They have a problem doing it because the common problem we see in golfers is that the arms actually slow down, the body turn actually slows down through impact so that the arms can catch up. You will see a lot of this very handsy kind of a release through impact, I still managed to hit down, but it is a risky proposition. The easiest way to prevent that is to understand that look, in the backswing the upper body turns to the right and in the downswing the upper body turns to the left. We want to have that be a constant rate of rotation. If you think of it as more RPMs versus Miles Per Hour. I am trying to get this clubhead to start to make its way back through the ball at the same rate of speed that my body is starting to turn. What is really important is as I get down in here that my body is turning, it is turning, turning through impact. That is one of the easiest ways to get that nice forward lean of the shaft. Keep that body turning, keep your arms with the body. Let the dog, this is the dog, the body, the clubhead is the tail, don't let the tail wag the dog. I would like to see your dog wag the tail. Here, back and let me see you turn through. Thanks.

Causes of Thin Shots Hitting the ball with the bottom of the club face can result from several different swing faults
Elevation Changes Affect Aim On shots that have a downhill or uphill elevation changes we tend to align ourselves incorrectly, so make these necessary corrections
Perfect Setup Like Tiger Woods Tiger's set up is great to copy, he is braced to the earth, in perfect position and balance, and ready to deliver a solid golf swing
