My kryptonite

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I have been working a lot on my setup, takeaway and backswing. I can get a decent thoracic spine turn and really load up into my right side without any sway. And get a good tight glute. Everything looks good in the mirror and feels good. My BIGGEST PROBLEM is the transition into the downswing. I don't know how to start the downswing. I know they say get to the left, start from the ground up, etc. none of that helps me. I literally get loaded up into the right side and then don't know what to do. Any drills I can work on? I usuly end up firing with my arms and flipping....

I share the feeling of squashing a bug under your left toe, gets the left knee to flex and gets the transfer.

Throw a football, baseball or kick a soccer ball. The hips open just like in the golf swing, not exactly the same, but we tend to just naturally do that in those instance. It's very similar.

To me it feels like I should slide the hips to drop my club into the slot, THEN rotate the hips through impact. My problem is not sliding the hips which causes weight transfer, or sliding too much and losing balance.

Like I said I like the feeling of keeping the knee knee flexed, adding pressure into the ground to get the hips to go forward.  Then the legs can extend, "use the ground", and that's what gives us the rotation.  Tough for the legs to extend into the followthrough if the hips just slide.
