Solid Move... Solid Results

To a golfer, there are few things in life that are as sweet as a well struck golf ball. It feels different, it sounds different, it flies different and the results are usually different. This is our quest, isn’t it? That’s why we trudge out to the range for hours on end, to replicate that sound, that feeling, that flight. So how can we at one moment hit a world class golf shot and at the other look like a world class buffoon? It boils down to a lack of consistency, the reason why we hit that awesome heart thumping shot, was because every part of the golf swing was working in perfect harmony and the club was delivered to the ball at the optimum angle and impact point.

So, to build consistency we need to hone a very consistent repeatable golf swing. One that will produce those great shots we just can’t get enough of. Here are a few easy check points that may help you hone that repeatable swing.

During your take away, have your left bicep come across your chest and try and have your left elbow make contact with your right shoulder. At the top of your backswing, your right hand should be in a position where it feels like you are a waiter holder a tray of food.

At this point in your swing, you are in a perfect position to make your all important move toward the ball. As you are at the top of your backswing, feel like you want to jab yourself in your left thigh with the butt end of your club and begin your downswing with this swing thought. If you make your move on the ball in this fashion, your club will be in the correct position and on the proper plane to strike the ball at it’s most optimum point, creating a very well struck and solid shot.

This movement may feel a little awkward to you at first, but the more you work with it during your practice session and get into the rhythm of… bicep, chest, elbow, shoulder, tray….. JAB THIGH!! The better and better your results will become.
