After building up a very good backswing sequence, it’s time now to move onto the downswing and the through-swing – developing the power, building it up until the point of impact. Now, we’ve already got on to a fantastic backswing position and now it’s time to start to move. Now, the sequence in the backswing is mirrored very closely with the downswing sequence, although it’s the opposite side of the body. So where is that right hip, just moving around to allow a little bit more shoulder through. On the way through, the left hip is going to be driving towards the ball and that is the first thing that moves, the left hip drives left down towards the target heading out towards the ball, and then the downswing sequence can really kick off. As the hip moves left, they then begin to rotate, the shoulders turn down, the arms follow, and then the hands is the last thing to come through. So, although the hands were the first thing to leave the ball during the backswing sequence they are the last thing to arrive during the downswing sequence, and that mirror effect will be complete.

They’re on 100 percent similarities, you don’t want to be getting perfect with the same position as you were to address. So although you’ve turned into a position from this address to the top of the swing, the hips will be in a slightly different position as they rotate through, the left leg will be straining, the hips will be rotating more and there will be more weight moving through to the left side. So although they’re not identical the backswing sequence and the follow-through the throughswing sequence have very similar characteristics just built on opposite ends of the body. So that is how you want to be building, you could follow a full good downswing, a good throughswing to actually deliver the power and deliver the good work you do in the backswing sequence through the ball.
