GARY WOOD­LAND STOPPED JUMP­ING AT IT

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - The Golf Life | Equipment -

Gary is a su­per ath­lete with great speed. He used to get too ag­gres­sive with his body start­ing down, which made the swing too nar­row. The club would drop be­hind him, caus­ing blocks and hooks. We came up with a prac­tice drill where he swings his driver to the top, then pauses for a beat be­fore start­ing down. This has helped him stop adding wrist hinge from the top – called down-cock­ing – which is what makes the swing nar­row. It’s a great les­son for golfers who have fast body ac­tion.
