What is the Right Golf Swing Sequence Women Golfer Tip (Video)

During this swing tip we’re going to look at what the correct swing sequence is for lady golfers to follow if they want to achieve maximum distance, accuracy and consistency during their golf shots. So once you’re in set up position, the correct sequence to move on the backswing starts from the upper body. Set the club so you’re creating a straight line from the left shoulder, down to the left hand and into the club head and then move this straight line away to the right along the target line for right-handed golfers. As you move the straight line away you will feel that your swing starts from the shoulders, from the left shoulder. So it’s the shoulders that instigate the movement. You’re turning and rotating your upper body as you’re allowing the club to move along the target line and then as you’re starting to rotate your upper body, your lower body is very, very quiet, very passive. There’s not a lot of movement in the lower body.

So the upper body’s rotating. Once you get to your position here with your right hands just past your right thigh then you’ll start to hinge your wrist into the shot. This will start to allow the club head to rise into a position where the club head is just above your hands but it’s pointing parallel down the target line to the right. So the shoulders have turned, the wrist has now started to hinge, the shoulders continue to turn, and you’ll achieve this position at the top of the backswing. So the correct sequence here on the backswing is to rotate your shoulders, hinge your wrist, keep rotating your shoulders and at the end of the backswing the hips will just rotate slightly.

The downswing sequence is completely opposite. So on the downswing sequence we see that we move from the ground upwards to uncoil the power that we stored upon the backswing. So downswing wise we start to see the knees turning towards the targets followed by the hips, the torso rotating, the arms and the hands dropping into the shot, and then the wrist being used to release the club into the impact position. Continue with the rotation, the upper body now turning so the chest faces the target, the arms extending outwards, and then into a well-balanced position.

So sequence for your backswing would be from the top-down: shoulders, moving into arms and torso, moving into hips; but on the downswing it’s from the ground up: knees into hips, hips into torso, then into arms and shoulders.
