The Finish Position
When your constant focus is to finish in a balanced position you will find that your misses will become much better misses. This is my definition of golf consistency, when your misses go the same distance and direction as when you hit the ball well. Timing is the sequentially linked motion of the body and club in the back swing and the return movement to the ball in the forward swing. A well-timed swing develops in order and then reverses the order on the forward swing to impact.
- Back swing timing – wrists, arms, shoulders, hips, legs
- Down swing timing – legs, hips, shoulders, arms, wrists
Your simple swing thought for the rest of your golf career…
O ften times we get too caught up in the positions of the take away or at the top of the back swing. The most important position is impact… the moment of truth. When thinking about impact players start to think about how to hit the ball instead of how to swing through the ball. Here is the best drill for anyone who wants to really improve his or her golf swing.
