What is a Rotary Golf Swing? (Video)

There is often a lot of buzz words around golf and so many golf swings and golf teaching and sometimes we’ve just got cut through the hype and just work out what this theory is all about. So the rotary golf swing is a theory you’ll often hear a lot about, it’s similar to one playing golf swing in many respects and it’s often modeled on the ideas of Moe Norman golf swing. Moe Norman was a legendary ball striker and great player but very unorthodox action and not something that many amateur golfers or even other professional golfers have been able to copy to a great degree. So rotary golf swing you might say like I do well all golf swings are rotary because I stood in the middle and I swing the club around but bare with me. A rotary golf swing differs from a standard two playing golf swing because a rotary golf swing we incline the spine quite aggressively at setup, keep the hands hanging below the chin and the chest and then just make sort of a one piece relatively flat and a round golf swing. We don’t work on the principles of taking the club up and then shallowing it out slightly which is clusters of a two playing swing so it’s here and everything just turns around the body, you often see people talking about the idea of a helicopter blades just go around. So if we make a rotary golf swing, we tilt and angulated down towards the golf ball and then the rotary movement comes around and stays on the single plain all the way back rather than coming up and then shallowing out. So that’s a rotary golf swing, it works for some people like I say Moe Norman, great ball striker worked well for him. It’s not something that I would necessarily teach for a lot of golfers unless they are really struggling with the concept of coming violently over the top we can just flatten that golf swing right out and it works okay for them. But that’s the theory behind a rotary golf swing.
