CLEAR HIPS FOR BETTER BALL STRIKING
Posted on 12th December 2016 at 16:51
A common fault I see are players not rotating there hips in the correct way. A lot of golfers will slide there hips forwards towards target, a common fault transferred from other sports (e.g. Cricket). This lack of rotation leads to poor striking and a tendency to pull or slice shots. So if you feel like this could apply to you, take this one swing thought out on the course when you next play:
Rotate your weight into your left heel*
After you have struck the shot, hold your finish position and check your hips have rotated towards the target.Check that your weight is into your left heel rather than your left toes (see photo below). This creates more room at impact for your hands and will improve your balance during the swing.
*Reverse for left handed golfers
