Have you tried about every swing tip out there and your still looking?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm not bragging at all but I shot a smooth 73 and I'll tell you how I did it for those you 

have tried everything out there. I don't believe this is the only swing that works but if you are having a difficulty finding something that works give it a try.

 

If you already have a good swing this is not for you.

Take a 2 knuckle grip with a pressure of 3 and your arms hanging like limb ropes.

Stand tall with a slight bend in the knees. Feet shoulder width apart for all clubs.

Ball position Off heel with driver, 3metal off breast pocket then move ball back 1/2 inch for the other clubs until you reach the 7 iron to lob wedge is in the center except for specialty 

shots.

Turn your shoulders and let your arms swing back with no pressure in you hands or arms

the left arm can bend some, raise the hands in-line with the ear and at ear height. The left hand will have a slight cup in it.

The back hip will turn as far as possible the chin will be under the shoulder or bicep depending how far you can turn.

Now turn your left hip back to the left and your right knee down the line and then let the club head follow as the back of the left hand squares up and then rolls over and the shaft

touches your left shoulder.

The main idea, is to turn the left hip and right knee down the line and this pull the arms and hands in the correct position.

Make slow swings at first and don't get in a rush and this will work for you.

Drill Hold the shaft on your right shoulder then make your left hip and right knee pull the club into the ball. *Warning check with a health professional before attempting these movements.

Lefty' s just reverse these moves.

I hope this helps someone!

Remember on the back swing let the arms follow the shoulders.  This may be more inside than you are use to.  Now all you have to is turn the hips and drive the right knee toward the left knee .  Do this is slow motion and you will see your hands are ahead of the club head and your right elbow is next to your side letting the lower body swing the arms.  It works, no over the top.

Well... if that's all you gotta do then it should be easy. With those instructions I think I might even try it from the left side and come in with a 79. a2_wink.gif

Wait, I thought all you had to do was look a few inches in front of the ball?  This stuff sounds too complicated.

I love the warning to check with a health professional before you try any of what he said.

I wish I could say it is easy.  Some days you can do nothing wrong and some days it doesn't go as well.  

These are suggestions that I have found work for me and other students.

I hope it will help someone but I know not everyone can feel the same type of swing I describe and that is why there are many swing theory's 

out there.  Find the one that works best for you and stay with it.
