PUSH BACK WITH LEFT SHOUL­DER TO START THE SWING

Golf Asia - - GOLFING INSTRUCTION -

Im­pact is the mo­ment of truth but it’s a prod­uct of what has gone be­fore. One good move leads to an­other. I’ve found that keep­ing the club­face look­ing at the ball for a frac­tion of a sec­ond longer in the take­away – with the ‘magic tri­an­gle’ of arms and chest mov­ing neatly to­gether – helps me get the club in the right slot at the top. The left arm should be straight and the right arm soft as the you push back with the left shoul­der and hand to keep the face look­ing at the ball rather than ro­tat­ing open in this ini­tial take­away phase. Then you sim­ply turn your shoul­ders to get the club con­sis­tently on plane at the top. From there, the down­swing starts from the ground up and you can drop the club down and at­tack the ball from the in­side.
