Swing with Momentum
Do you sometimes find it a challenge to start your golf swing?
Because golf is one of few sports that our bodies start from a still position it can be a challenge at times to swing the club back smooth.
Imagine picking up a bucket and swinging it back and through using your arms and shoulders. Now imagine using your hip turn as well when you swing the bucket and feel the difference.
When you rest your club on the ground prior to starting your swing your grip and arms are relaxed. When you start your backswing the muscles suddenly have to start working which can lead to a jerky and inconsistent movement during your takeaway. By doing this drill the muscles will already be working as you start your back swing which will help to promote a free flowing movement.
This will help you to feel a natural smoother starting back movement instead of being stuck and too static from a tense position.
Try this drill with your club.
