Less Is More When It Comes To Your Golf Swing!
I’ve asked many a student to hit me a shot while attempting to hold their body as still as possible. When they view the video playback they are always shocked at how much their body moved during the swing. So many of us try to do too much. Once you get on the golf course and your RPM increases the problem gets even worse. Too much movement with the body can destroy your golf swing and especially your consistency.
Work on swinging while holding your body still….a swing that feels to you like all arms. You’ll be surprised at how far you’ll hit the golf ball and how consistent you will be in ball contact.
The body needs to work as a support mechanism or base to work from. Yea yea yea, I heard all out the leg drive too but it’s a con. Don’t fall for it.
I once saw an article in Golf Digest that was an interview of Jack Nicklaus on his long career. The interviewer asked, “Do you credit some of your success to the strong leg drive you had?”
Nicklaus replied, “I’ve heard a lot about that and read it in many articles. Fact is I never thought about my leg drive. I always felt that having strong legs offered me the opportunity to swing my arms harder.”
You’ve got to Be kidding! How many golfers were totally screwed up because of all the articles about leg drive!
