SYNC THE THROUGH-SWING
Golfers talk about making a “one-piece takeaway” in the backswing, with everything moving together. But your downswing needs to be coordinated, too. I have to make sure my hips don’t rotate so fast that my hands are left behind and can’t square the club by impact. For amateurs, the opposite happens. The body stops, but the arms keep moving and the club squares too early. The key is to not rush down. Let the hips unwind unhurried, and the hand speed build so the club is moving its fastest through impact.
