Hello lovely people, I hope you’re all safe and well.
What have you been up to over the last few weeks? I would love to hear your thoughts about my tips & tricks and would love to know what you want to read every week. I really love helping you with your golf and would like to know how you’re getting on in lockdown and how I could help you even further.
This week I would like to help you understand how to balance and transfer your weight in your golf swing. It’s very important to use the ground correctly when you swing a golf club . Understanding where the pressure goes through your feet can really change the movements of your swing. Lots of people struggle with rotation and early extension (hips thrusting forward) as well as the good old “over the top” move through the downswing. People then try to fix this with their hands or arms but a lot of it comes from the movements in the lower body. The pressure through the feet will likely move towards the balls of the feet or the toes through the downswing if you struggle with the faults mentioned, therefore we’re going to try and shift that weight back towards the heels a little more through transition onwards.
I’m going to guide you through another indoor drill that can help fix these problems and you can do it without swinging the club with lots of speed and therefore reducing the risk of smashing walls and ceilings.
The camera has not been kind on some of these photos so please don’t laugh too much! I haven’t put on any weight during lockdown it’s just the baggy t-shirt!
I really hope you get a chance to try this because you’ll understand how to use the floor a lot better when you get back to the golf course or driving range. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me on the social media pages and I’ll be more than happy to help.
