Scott Stallings Pro Golfer, Swing Sequence (Video)
Scott Stallings Pro Golfer, Swing Sequence (Video)

So now I'm going to come back to swing analysis for Scott Stalling. A rising start of the PGA tour, two time winner already on tour, worked hard to go through Nationwide Tour, qualifying score and in to the big league. And you can't underestimate the effort it takes to do that and the ability these players have. So when we look at his swing clearly his swing works quite nicely, but there is one little key move in there that could cause him some issues. But it's also actually the reason why he hits the ball so far, average driver distance last year 302 yards, ranked 17th on the tour.

So he's clearly a very big hitter of the golf ball. One of the reasons why he's a very big hitter is from a great address position ball along way forwards in the stumps, and super wide in the backswing really big wide turn to the top. But then he gets narrow, then he gets very lagged. You look at photos of Scott Stalling's downswing, you feel like the shaft is almost going to bump into his right shoulder, and his shaft when you look at the still photos there's quite a big curve to it, as the shaft bends and loads up in the back swing.

So he really gets this lag coming in here, lots and lots of angle between his left wrist as he brings the club down towards the golf ball. Now that lag is a good and a bad thing, the good thing is when you unload that lag you generate massive power, 302 yards 17th in driver distance. The down side if you have like too late in your swing is you can't accurately and consistently predict where that club head would be as you strike the ball so two things for you, if you struggle with accuracy consider reducing the lag and increasing the width of your swing.

So keep the club wider, slightly less wrist hinge at the top and feel like you are wider on your downswing, that would create less lag, less club head and sort of re-correction into impact and a little bit straighter. But if you are struggling with distance in your swing -- so you are hitting the ball nice and straight but not far enough, you could consider increasing your lag a little bit more wrist hinge at the top, a little bit more narrowing this here to keep the lag for longer, and then releasing the hands at the last second.

So if you got to the top and you were too wide and too much early release, that would slow the clubber down a little bit. So depending on whether you need more power or more accuracy, you could look at Scott Stalling's golf swing, and work out whether you need the lag or whether you need the width.
