Second Hand Shorts 9: The downswing

Join the Pro at the Golf Shack Academy for some tips and drills to make you a better golfer.
 

It’s time for another episode of ‘Second Hand Shorts’. Today we discuss the downswing. You can watch some of the other episodes of the series below:

 

Today’s short is all about your downswing.

A good downswing is essential for executing a powerful and sensible shot. We spoke to the Pro down at the Golf Shack Academy to find out what practice drill will best help us to maintain an accurate downswing.

I get asked this a lot in lessons. What starts that transition period? For me it’s simply – the left hip. If you clear that left hip it will give you loads of room and it will give you loads of speed.

The pro’s suggested drill is to use a club or alignment stick placed on the floor and pointing left of the target. This will provide a visual to help you to move your left hip back and out of the way during the swing.
