KEEP YOUR RIGHT HIP HIGH ON THE WAY DOWN

Golf World (UK) - - DJ’S DISTANCE SECRETS -

When I favoured a draw off the tee, I no­ticed that my right hip would drop to­wards the ground as I started down. That in­stinc­tively hap­pens when you try to shal­low out your down­swing and swing from in to out. Now that I play a slight fade, my hip turn is much flat­ter, more hor­i­zon­tal to the ground.

Fo­cus­ing on keep­ing my right hip high in the tran­si­tion keeps the club out in front of the body and pre­vents it from drop­ping too far be­hind me. When I can keep the club more in front of me, my swing path shifts a lit­tle more to the left, which helps me cre­ate that gen­tle cut spin I’m look­ing for.
