Ben An With a swing like his, put this 20-something on your watch list
KEEP IT SIMPLE
Ben’s swing is simple and efficient, says his swing coach, David Leadbetter. “We’ve worked to build a repetitive swing where he doesn’t have to overthink,” Leadbetter says. “It starts with a solid setup. His hands are fractionally behind the ball. That allows him to shift away with minimum fuss.”
WIND IT UP
As the left shoulder moves down and away from the target, he’s winding his core against his lower body. “It’s a big winding of the core,” Leadbetter says. “Part of what makes that possible is how stable his feet and knees are as he takes the club back.” That torquing action against a stable base stores power.
“As his club reaches the top, this is where you really see how efficient Ben’s swing is,” Leadbetter says. “He’s fully wound up with his core, but look at how short his arm swing appears. This is one of the things he’s worked on the past couple years to build consistency. It’s a move easier to repeat.”
