Swing secrets from the US Open champion

Swing secrets from the US Open champion

How you can learn from Webb Simpson
 
  • If you look at Simpson’s statistics he is steady in every department. His best assets are hitting greens from long range and making a lot of putts in the 20+ feet range.The noteworthy points are how smoothly Simpson begins the return journey to impact. Both feet are firmly on the ground, his hips have returned to their starting position, while his torso retains a strong coil away from the ball, creating the so-called powerful X-stretch.
  • Take a look his left wrist, left forearm and leading edge of the clubface. Many pundits advocate that all three should be parallel to each other but this can only be achieved if the player adopts a slice-promoting, weak grip.Simpson holds the club with his hands positioned more to the right, a classic grip, and from this hold it is not possible for the left arm and clubface to be parallel. No, the leading edge of Webb’s clubface is, in fact, parallel to his swing plane and this is just as it should be to promote a correct impact on the ball. A solid action to mimic.

If you look at Simpson’s statistics he is steady in every department. His best assets are hitting greens from long range and making a lot of putts in the 20+ feet range. Analysis by Gary Alliss, pro at Ladbrook Park. The ‘King of the Swing’ has twice captained the PGA Cup side. Go to www.ladbrookparkgolf.co.uk
