Keep Your Golf Swing Moving For Better Contact (Video)
Keep Your Golf Swing Moving For Better Contact (Video)

We’ve already discussed how not being able to control the lowest point of your swing is a big issue in terms of your ball striking. But for a lot of golfers, the problem doesn’t become really in the back swing, it comes in the down swing as they start to come down towards the ball. They almost focus too much on controlling the low point that they don’t actively turn all the way through the ball and the low point is not the end of your swing. Yes, it’s where you hit the ball mostly, but it isn’t really the end of your swing. It’s just a part of function of a good proper full swing.

  So, if a lot of golfers setting up to the ball is good, turning to the top in a good position as they swing down, they focus so much on hitting the ball, they forget to actually move, they forget that that is not the end of the swing. And as the club comes down, the body weight stays static, the arms slow down. The club will therefore generally speaking bottom out too early. And if you feel that you have done everything right in your back swing, yet you are still not hitting the ball correctly. The advice really is just to let it go a bit more, just cut loose a bit more, just keep that body weight turning through to the left-hand side a little bit more aggressively and hopefully with that in mind, you will turn through faster and actually deliver a better swing with a better low point, a low point is a bit more down the left-hand side. So, setting up to the ball nicely here, turning to the top with control and I want to drive my body weight left, turn my body to the left-hand side, keep moving, keep moving, keep moving, keep moving, low point is after the golf ball down through to a nice big finish position. I want to avoid quitting and stopping and losing confidence by hitting the ground before the ball. So, if you feel that you have checked everything in your set, you’ve checked everything in your box and you are still hitting the ground before the ball, your low point is too far back, consider that you’re just simply not keeping moving through to your left side. Drive it through to wedge. Keep moving on to that front foot and improve your low point control.
