Ricky Fowler Pro Golfer, Swing Sequence (Video)
Ricky Fowler Pro Golfer, Swing Sequence (Video)

Ricky Fowler’s a great player, really epitomizes the new breed of golfers coming on the scene, he’s got a couple of new neat quirky things about him, certainly a unique dress sense, often all in orange on the final day colors, fairly unique little golf swing and kind of the pop star good looks. Again all the girls like to be and all the lads like to dress like him. If we look at Ricky Fowler’s golf swing and the way he plays there are a couple of things I would like you to take on board and then there’s one thing I would like you to avoid in your technique as well.

So if we set up the golf ball just down the line so you can see the angle here, taking a driver you’ll notice when Fowler sets up the golf ball, his set up doesn’t look particularly orthodox, he has very low hand position here really dropping his hands down quite low. And he also grips down on his bigger clubs quite often; particularly if he really focuses on accuracy and not mega distance, he is prone to gripping up a couple of inches, has really low hands in the set up position. That will then lead to quite an outside the line take-away, pitch golf club up and then re-routes it and drops it on the inside and that’s really his sort of unique signature move, is that outside take away; it kind of works well for him that he’s trying to keep the club on line for as long as possible.

So the one thing I would like to encourage you to do, is this concept of gripping down for accuracy will often work; whether you’re gripping down on a wedge to control your distance on your shorter shot which is more common. A lot of golfers would be doing that, but actually gripping down on your driver when you don’t need mega distance but accuracy is in the forte, then grip down on your driver could be a good thing.

The this low hand positing is okay but a little bit more height if you’re a taller guy would be better then try and work on taking the clubs straight back into the camera lens there. So if I would put a mirror where the camera is, the club would come straight back and it would sit on top of my hands, I don’t really like this lifted up, picked up outside the line dropped in and squeezed position that Fowler gets. So if you can work on more of a solid one piece take away without too much risk on the way back, that should encourage you to hit a little but straighter, a little bit more consistently and if you still struggle with accuracy, copy the Ricky Fowler grip down to help you find a few more fair ways.
