Jay Haas Pro Golfer, Swing Sequence (Video)
Jay Haas Pro Golfer, Swing Sequence (Video)

Jay Hass who is currently playing his trade on the Champions Tour, and doing quite well for him as well; had a phenomenal career in the game of golf. Played for 35 years, over 31 tournament victories and a very, very steady player but actually struggled with a little bit of a quack in his golfing for most of that time. Stands from poor posture, poor course stability and a little bit of a tweak in the take away. So something’s you can learn from this, and other things you can try and avoid or try to encourage you to avoid.

Setting up that goal ball is where the main problem starts perhaps; a little bit of problem with the back, starts to get the hips tucked under the too much and quite around it, sort of slumped shoulder position. From there the golf club moves very aggressively outside the line. So if you could work up pushing your hips back, straightening your legs and tightening your core muscles a little bit more, tightening the abs up here, bringing the posture up, you would avoid the slumped posture position. Then the take away move that Haas has, is a little bit of a lift of the hads. The hands sort of pick the club up, rather than -- I would prefer to see them be very passive and turn the shoulders a lot more.

So if you can focus in your own game of taking your left shoulder, pushing it round underneath the chin, the club comes straight back to camera on playing, rather than little lift up than outside the line that Haas has, that I would prefer. One thing that Jay does very well and always has done, is he drops the golf club back down on the right line very nicely, so we see quite a big backwards loop in the swing. The club is outside the line here, if he brings the golf club back down outside the line, we’d normally see the ball cutting or pulling down the left side.

He actually makes the swing raise outside the line here, to then dropping the club back in quite nicely, attacking the ball on the good angle coming through the ball, swinging from in throughout hitting quite a nice shape of short. So try and avoid the posture, try and avoid the outside take away, but the little shallowing angle -- the little drop in and the 31 tournament victories, that definitely something you should try and copy.
