Have you ever wondered how your golf club should start to swing away from the golf ball properly and if this changes with each club in your bag?
Watch my short video to find out:
How to Use Your Turn to Get the Correct Swing Plane
If you simply keep your lead underarm close to your chest as you start your backswing this will help guide you to perfect backswing path. Your lead underarm just needs to brush across your chest to give you a naturally curving path and this will help to adjust your path appropriately as the length of each club changes.
As your arm stays close to your body, the momentum of the swinging club and your arms will help to pull your shoulders to turn as a result and therefore be a natural motion.
As you set up in the same good golf posture with each club, your distance from the ball will change to allow you to get into the same body position but change your distance from the golf ball. As you are farther from the ball the curve of your backswing will naturally adjust due to the changing distance from your golf ball.
So remember to set up into good golf posture for all of your clubs and allow your underarm to swing across your chest. By following the steps in this lesson you will have the proper curving path and perfect shoulder turn for each and every club in your golf bag.
