Video Golf Tip | Getting Into and Out Of Shots
By John Elliott

When you begin your swing you do it with some sort of a trigger, something moves which then triggers other movements. My question is what do you do when you get out of your swing? Let me show you how to get into and get out of every golf swing you are going to make from the smallest of chip shots to the full driver that you would hit off the first tee. Getting into the shot is all a part of your pre-swing routine. As you go through your procedure, and I am going through the five steps of my procedure, one, two I look at my target, three I am posturing and aligning both myself and my club, four, five. Four was the placement of my front foot, five was the replacement of my back foot. I then hit my shot. I watch the ball and the club slides through my lead hand and it is balanced on the two center fingers of that hand. So after I hit my shot you saw those moves, both hands are hanging by my side and then I present the club to my right hand to begin the next journey. I roll the ball out of the pile, put it on a perfect lie, I back up and go through that same procedure again. I am now on step two. Three, alignment and posture, Four, five, this is called a waggle, I hit my shot. I finish the finish and then I finish the follow through, I present the club to my back hand, pull a ball out of the pile. When you think about the three major things that folks are thinking about in golf, distance, accuracy and consistency, the consistency is within the ability to get into and get out of your routine every single time the same way. If you want to take that a step further and be really cool doing it you can join my cool club. The cool club only has 30 two members right now and here is the difference in their routine from the one I just showed you. This is cool. Everything is the same until the very end. Nothing is different but if you want to do this and be really cool give the club to your right hand from behind your back and reach for the next ball. Now that is cool.

Swing Path Drill The Mickey Wright drill will help keep your club face square throughout the swing and your swing path coming from inside to out
Arm Position: Y In Your Swing To eliminate bad shots caused by your arms breaking down on the backswing and follow through, maintain the Y created by your arms and club at set up
The Correct Pivot Pivoting is a crucial step in the golf swing, properly done it gets your weight behind the ball in the backswing and shifts it back on the downswing
