MAKE A STRONGER PIVOT AROUND YOUR FRONT LEG

Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - Play Your Best -

Most am­a­teurs I play with don’t have enough swing speed to power the ball out of the rough. They need more loft, so a 5-iron is prob­a­bly not a good club se­lec­tion. They also need to get their weight more on the front foot as they swing down. For me, that’s the right leg. For righthanders, it’s the left. The death move is to try to lift the ball out by swing­ing off your back leg. That puts too much grass be­tween the club­head and the ball. In­stead, as you swing down, feel like your front leg is a su­per sturdy post, and pivot your body around it. This will pro­duce a more ver­ti­cal swing path to hit the ball solidly. Ex­pect it to come out lower with less back­spin.
