The Best Ways To Turn Your Hips In Your Golf Swing (Video)

Now I know that golf is a distance-related game. You know golf course is now getting longer and longer, quite regularly people playing out of a 7000 yard golf course. So clearly golf is a distance-related game. We also know that golf is a rotational game. We stand to the side of the ball. We rotate right to left to the right-handed golfer. So it stands to reason that rotating is going to be one of the biggest ways that we can create the distance. And it certainly should be one of the biggest ways we create distance. And if you're not using rotation to create distance you're probably lacking on a huge amount of distance.

So if we consider how the rotational forces in the golf swing can help us generate distance, it comes down mainly to the hips. The hips sit right in the middle of the body. So the right, therefore right in the middle of the swing, a very powerful part of the body, very influential part of the body. And actually a part of the body we can use from the ground upwards to create a huge amount of those rotational forces that we need to generate the distance that we need as well. So as we set up to the golf ball, the hip is generally going to sit quite square to the rest of the body, everything pointing in the right direction. During the backswing, a big rotation of the hips in one direction followed by a big unwinding and releasing of the hips in the other direction is going to be there to create a huge amount of power particularly as we go through the bag and reach the longer clubs. The more we can rotate the middle of the body, the better. If you feel that your golf swing is either too handsy, too armsy, not hitting the ball very far or very unbalanced and very unstable that could all point to issues that you have with the rotation of your hips. If you're hitting the ball with hands and arms, it isn't going very far. If you're hitting the ball and you are very off balance, your hips aren’t working correctly. So go ahead and watch this little next mini-series of videos and understand how the rotational forces created in the middle of your swing can help you hit the golf ball out there as far as you’ve wanted to.
