How to train your body to add power
he pivot motion is the lifeblood of any golf swing. How the body winds going back and unwinds coming through is the key to creating energy and transferring it to the ball. In my new book, The A Swing:The Alternative Approach to Great Golf, I explain why it’s so important to synchronise the body pivot with the arm swing.All good players get this right. Learn to pivot correctly with these four steps.
Without a club, mimic your address posture, but place your hands on the sides of your legs, with your right hand a few inches lower than your le . Your spine will tilt slightly to the right.
Simulate your backswing turn, keeping your arms against your sides. As you coil your upper body and shi your weight away from the target, your right hand will slide up and your le hand will slide down.
Before you start unwinding, transfer most of your weight from your right foot to your le with a lateral shi of the lower body. Your pelvis and legs should shi towards the target, but your head should stay in place.
Just like in an actual golf swing, rotate your hips and torso so they face the target. Let your weight settle into the heel of your le foot, and make sure your hands return to where they were at the beginning.
