    wedge part 5 downswing

    The downswing is proof that the golf swing does, indeed, work from the bottom up.

    Once you reach the top of the backswing, here’s what should happen:

  • If the left heel has lifted on the backswing, it returns to the ground. If the heel remains planted, the left knee triggers the downswing by moving left.
  • The left hip rotates toward the target, pulling the torso, shoulders and arms through toward the ball.
  • The hips and torso continue rotating, the arms lagging slightly behind the chest until impact.
  • Weight begins shifting from right foot to left.
  • As for the head… Keep your eyes focused on the back of the ball throughout the swing and it will react accordingly.
