For those of you who want to really learn to swing with your body, you will want to read the rest of this blog post.
To really swing with your body, there’s one exercise I do and let me tell you how to do that exercise.
First, I want you to setup with a golf club (any will do) and take your address as if you are going to swing a real ball.
Second, I want you to grip it with both of your hands like you would normally then take your left hand off there while leaving your right hand on the golf club.
Third, I want you to use your body to move your shoulders, arms, hands, and the golf club to the top of your swing very, very slowly. Let me emphasize again that you want to do this as slowly as possible and feel all your big muscles like the torso and the core of your body doing the turning of the backswing.
Also when you use your body to get to the top of the swing, I want you to really “feel” your body “turning”.
Can you feel it yet?
If you can feel it, that’s how you swing a golf club with your body.
For the downswing, it’s the same thing, you use your body to control the downswing.
Why is this so important?
Because when you swing the golf club with your body, you will be able to swing the same way time and time and also be able to hit the ball longer, straighter, and effortlessly.
Also if you tend to take a lot of time from golf like I have been, it simply makes sense to have a golf swing that’s easy to repeat and uses your body as control point.
Anyways, I’ve been using this new swing (that I’ve forgotten) lately and hitting like every fairway, flawless iron shots that “nip” the grass just right.
Try it, really, and I bet it will help you feel what the correct golf swing motion is like.
