Re: The Biggest Secret? SLIDE Your Hips

You also move the head and center of the body way back on the backswing, which makes it harder to get the weight forward on the downswing. On the backswing, you should keep the head and center of the body still laterally, not moving them back. On the downswing, the head stays still, laterally, and the hips push forward more. Don't think about rotation, it will come automatically when you push far enough. Don't confuse this with moving the hips faster forward. You want to push them forward all the way through the swing. The peak of the forward push will be reached just after impact, from there they rotate through to the finish.
- Weight forward 55-45 at address
- Keep the head and center of the body at the same position, not moving it backwards on the backswing
- Push the hips as much forward as you can from the top of the backswing and through impact
