The Perfect Golf Swing

The Perfect Golf Swing

No I’m not talking about a player on tour.  I’m talking about a robot!  I compare the robot to Ernie Els and Tiger Woods for similarities and there are many.  The video below should give you a better idea of what you need to accomplish in your golf swing.

1) Set up with a 90 degree spine angle and maintenance of same throughout the swing or slightly past impact.
2) Hurl or swing the golf club on an angle 90 degrees to the spine angle or on the same angle as the shaft at address.
3) Keep the golf club face a right angles to the path of the golf club

That’s it!  Oh yea, you sort of need to align yourself at the intended target in the first place.  Of course there is also rhythm, tempo, balance and oh the heck with this, let’s play tennis!  No wait, watch the video first!

 

A couple of things mentioned in the video that I think are key is the presetting of the angle before making the back swing and the stopping at the top of the back swing before beginning the down swing.  That is a drill Tiger used to with Butch many years ago when he was playing his best golf.  The Tiger Woods drill is available here.
