LEVEL OUT YOUR TURN

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best The Long Ball -

I bet you’ve heard “you need to turn more” plenty of times. I won’t dis­ap­point. You do need to turn. But the driver works the best if swung on a shal­low plane. You lose that plane if you make a very steep turn, and your left shoul­der dips very low on the back­swing and then comes around very high. That makes the bottom of the swing steep and nar­row, not flat and wide like it should be. To feel a good turn, hold a club across your chest and turn back and through with the shaft re­main­ing roughly level with the ground. Recre­ate that feel when you play.
