“I think the golf swing is all about rotation, all about trying to keep the club on plane. - Tiger Woods
Sounds simple enough....??? But in simple terms Tiger Woods has hit the nail on the head! Or shall we say nailed the driver right on the sweet spot with that one! The golf swing indeed is all about body rotation and in the correct sequence of motion to develop power and swing the club consistently with solid contact and accuracy. So if it's so easy, why is the game so hard? Why do so many struggle to break 100, 90 and achieve their golf goals? The ball is not moving, our opponents are not trying to body check or tackle us! But for the average golfer the turning and pivoting is a hard motion, most don't have the mobility and flexibility to be able to turn and pivot freely and correctly. This makes it very difficult to move the body in the correct sequence of motion which makes it almost impossible to swing the club on plane. It's one of the main reasons why so many golfers slice for example! They just can't turn and pivot properly! Check out this great practice drill that will help improve your body pivot and your sequence of motion to swing the club on plane. The best golf drills are ones which improve your technique and your mobility at the same time! Watch the video below.
