Are you using your weight correctly and effectively in the golf swing?
Dynamic balance in the golf swing refers to the way in which you use your weight. As you are looking to make an athletic motion with good body rotation, it makes sense that your balance point will change during the swing. Generally speaking, with a 7-iron in hand you want your weight split evenly at address, and then for 80 per cent of it to shift into your right side by the time your reach the top of the backswing.
From there, you then shift back towards the target, so that 80 per cent is on your left side in the finish. This is one of the fundamentals of a good golf swing. The same principles apply in all sports – even in throwing a ball, where your weight moves towards the target as you release.
People often get fixated on keeping their head down. This can prevent the flow, or dynamic balance, that is so important. Your head can move right and then left a fraction to help you rotate and then unwind, but what you must avoid is for your head to lift or dip. Of course, good dynamic balance means that you should be able to hold your finish until the ball lands.
