Hip Rotation

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have noticed that my hip rotation stops before I get to impact and I slide forward  more to the target from that point in my downswing. Could this be the cause of my swing path from the outside?

Yes, u really want ur hips to sliding in the early part of the downswing, this will get u hitting from the inside,

Have you noticed this on video or is this something you feel is occurring?

 

Generally if your swing is "across the ball" you probably aren't "sliding" enough.

Ok I would recommend posting a swing in the Member Swing forum.  Might be a good thread for you to check out.  The hips stalling could cause the overtaking rate to increase, "flipping", which can start to rotate the path to the left.  Important to be opening up with the weight forward.

It can be the cause but what's the cause of your hips stopping to rotate?

 

Can be physical - they just don't move well...a simple hip rotation test will sort that out and you can do it yourself with a 6 and 7 iron.  TPI's self-test (lower quarter rotation) is a free starting point for you and you'll have a decent answer in 15 minutes. 

 

It can also be mental - if your goal is the ball then the brain will initiate movement to there and stop caring after that.  That's a great recipe for the body to stop.  If the body stops and the arms keep going the only way to not hit yourself (self-preservation) is over-the-top.  This has been showing time and again with club-throwing drills or other target focus tips. 

 

I'd look at both possibilities and yes a great idea to post vids.
