Tim Clark Pro Golfer, Swing Sequence (Video)
Tim Clark Pro Golfer, Swing Sequence (Video)

If we now look at Tim Clark as a golfer, it’s interesting a little paradox really, it doesn’t look particularly good when he plays golf he's got a little bit of a squab posture and he is only quite a short guy five eight tall. But then again he's won $14 million, so clearly he's doing something better than most of us. Actually his posture is related to a physical condition where he struggles to stretch his right arm; he has a full arm condition that doesn't allow him to stretch his right arm on fully. So when you see him from the set up position, he has quite a chicken wing with the right elbow that looking from down the line causes a few issues where effectively his right arm is shorter he then need to haunch over a little bit more.

It also produces a little bit of a, the chicken wings through the ball where he doesn’t full extend the arms out as we would normally see. So from that respect in terms of the bending the arm and the poor posture, not really something you should copy. But then again how does he win so often? How doe she play so well? How has he amassed $14 million worth of prize money? Well it comes down to his accuracy, he is not a particularly long golfer but he really understands where that club faces during his swing and he is very, very accurate.

So if you feel that either down to a physical limitation, or an age thing or a flexibility thing, if you feel like you can’t drive the ball as far you compatriots and you can’t keep up in terms of distance, there is till a way to play good golf there is still a way to reduce your handicap and play nicely and that's really through accuracy. So you need to focus on fairways hit, greens and regulations how straight can you hit that golf ball is not going to be all about power, but it’s going to be about good club face position. So we need to work hard on good solid alignment we need to make sure that club faces that square at set up.

If you bring the club to a vertical position here we should see the leading edge pointing straight to the sky not open or closed. And then really focus hard on a good solid fundamental grip position keeping the club face nice and square on the way back and as much as you can, extending your hands and arms down the target line should help with your accuracy. Yes Tim Clark has a little bit of a bent elbow but we now know why, so not necessarily a swing to copy but certainly an attitude, an approach and an accuracy that you can definitely learn from.
