THE BACKSWING

“I use a ‘one-piece take­away’. The club, your hands and arms all move back at the same time as one unit. If you’re a re­cre­ational player, it cuts your mar­gin of error.”

THE TOP SWING

“Your left arm and shoul­ders should be at 45 de­grees. This cre­ates a right an­gle be­tween your left arm and the club shaft, giv­ing you more power and lever­age.”

THE DOWNSWING

“Keep your shoul­ders sta­ble to re­po­si­tion the club for de­liv­ery into the ball. This will pre­vent a slice or hook. En­sure your eyes are fixed on the back of the ball here.”

FOL­LOW THROUGH

“Let your arms swing through without re­sis­tance: the body slows the club down nat­u­rally. If you com­mit to a shot with full ro­ta­tion, your fin­ish will be bal­anced.”
