Rushing In Your Golf Swing It Can Cause Balance Problems (Video)

Good number of golfers appreciate how important balance is in the golf swing. They’re also aware of maybe the fact they don’t have good balance. We often see players who have this blocked or push shot to the right-hand side, they drop the club in behind them, and then they fall off balance as they do it. And they hit it, and they off after this way, and the ball goes pretty straight as that one has, but straight down the right-hand side. So they’re aware of the problem but they’re not necessarily quite sure how to fix that balance issue. The main focus that we see with golfers who do struggle with balance is probably trying to hit the ball too hard, and particularly trying to rush their swing. So they don’t really allow the club to get to a good set position at the top, balance, good turn through to a finish, and balance. Everything just gets a little bit rushed and a little bit quick.

So as the club is still going up it starts coming down, and they give it a big hit, and they walk off after it. So the first thing we need to consider when we’re trying to create better balance is not trying to hit the ball too hard, and definitely not rushing with it. Other things that we want to see as well depending on how and where a golfer loses the balance is we should really have great confidence in our balanced follow-through position. So we see a good golfer set up to the ball, balance 50/50, turning pretty stable, and then turning through, and knowing that this is a good balanced follow-through position, and they’re confidently hitting the ball down the fairway. For golfers that lack a little bit of confidence, lack a little bit of balance, quite often it a whack off the back foot and they’re not balanced, they’re not stable as they hit through the ball. Some golfers are trying to steer the ball like that as well, leaning back, trying to steer it down the fairway rather than having the confidence to turn all the way through to a good follow-through position. So if you’re a little bit unbalanced in your swing, and that’s causing those blocked shots to the right-hand side, make sure that you’re confidently turning through the ball, and you’re not rushing or trying to hit the ball too hard.
