Golf Lessons – How The Golf Swing Works

by David Jenyns on September 3, 2012

Click Here: ignitiongolf.com Golf Lessons In this lesson I explain how the golf swing incorporates the very same elements found in all other sports. It’s these elements that allow you to develop incredible power and consistency as your swing. If you’ve had golf lessons in the past you may have been taught to hit the ball solely with your arms. This couldn’t be further from the truth. This type of golf instruction is only half of the swing. Although the arms play a role in generating the power in the golf swing these arms have to be connected to something. To understand it, think about throwing a ball, swinging a bat or racquet. If you never played any of these sports before you would at least be able make the motion almost instantly without lessons or instruction. The reason you can play other sports well yet have trouble playing golf is because the ball in all of these other sports is in motion whereas in golf the ball is stationary. With a stationary object sitting in front of you, you’ll want to hit the object instead of swinging through the object. The harder you hit, the tighter you get, the more you’ll move the club off of it’s path. Also, when you try to hit hard it causes your arms to buckle through impact thus narrowing the swing arc which lowers your swing speed. There is differing golf instruction out there. Hopefully, after you watch this and other golf lessons you see that the legs play an important role in the golf swing. If not, the best players in the

You are contacting the ball with the club still on its way down. This descending blow is created by? the body tilting right in the downswing. When you tilt to the right you are getting closer to the ground than when you first started. If you get closer to the ground the club would be descending as it hits the ball. How do you get this? By starting the lower body first in the downswing.

Your back heel should be off the ground at impact 3-4 inches with irons and 5-6 inches with woods. Never keeps this back foot flat. The only? people who do are sliders and we know how consistent they are.

You can but you are not going to be consistent. This is because you have to slide laterally in the downswing to square the club. If you are on top of the ball and you turn you will pull it way left. So you slide to? drop it to the inside. If you slide too much you push it. If you don’t slide enough you pull it. Plus your yardages get out of way due to the steep angle of attack. This is way most people who try this complain they cannot hit driver plus their back hurts.

Glad you like the videos. I appreciate the feedback. Many of the best players of all time broke the left arm. Take a look at? Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Nick Faldo, Freddy Couples etc. Keeping the arm locked creates tension in most people. Let it bend. It does need to be straight at and past impact though.

Great video. In one of you other videos you talk about your left arm? breaking. I have the same problem and have tried everything not to break it. A guy I took lessons from says it critical that i don’t. I’m so confused.

can you place your weight on your left side WITH spine angle tilt away and turn around that tilted spine without transfering weight to your right side? I don’t believe everyone should load to their rear leg. If? you are better balanced on your front side, wouldn’t your keep the weight on that leg and turn around the spine angle?
