4 DOS & DON’TS FOR POWER

Golf Asia - - GOLFING PROFILE -

DO!

Most golfers have poor or no hip turn. Real hip turn is a repo­si­tion­ing of the top of your legs. Us­ing a tour stick through your belt hoops ide­ally il­lus­trates what we’re look­ing to achieve; the left end (righthanders) should move to­wards the ball.

DON’T!

As you can see, re­stricted right leg move­ment means there’s barely any hip turn what­so­ever; the left end of the tour stick has barely moved. That’s go­ing to re­strict your back­swing coil and your abil­ity to cre­ate power.

DO!

A lot of peo­ple cheat a back­swing by lift­ing the club to the top pri­mar­ily us­ing their arms, but in this drill the foam roll gets Joe to move his body as well as his arms. If you don’t ro­tate the rib cage more, you run the risk of a se­ri­ous power leak.

DON’T!

Most golfers don’t turn their rib cage enough and cheat by just mov­ing their arms. But you’ve got to have the right blend of arms and body and the rolling foam is the per­fect prop to en­sure this is achieved.
