Core Strength In The Golf Swing


Being strong enough to control the position of the body’s mid section whilst at set up and during the swing is a great way to help your technique. 

Without good stability your movement can become very out of control with loss of spine angle and positions leading to very erratic and inconsistent shots. 

A strong core also helps to increase your distance.  Rotational speed can be improved without trying any harder.

Want to test your core strength?

Try standing on one leg with you hands on your head. 

Once balanced shut your eyes.

With regular practice at this you will be able to increase the time you can hold your balance. 

This will also activate not only your core muscles but engage your ankle muscles. 

Strong ankle muscles are certainly needed to help you to support your lower body movement throughout and aid in supporting most of your body weight on your leading foot as you reach your finish.

Happy Golfing

How To Drive For Show

It’s time you stopped missing the fairway, got more distance off the tee and did it more often.

You’ve probably heard the phrase Drive For Show, Putt For Dough…

How much money do you think you would win if it takes you four shots before you reach the green?

Being able to hit the driver well requires a quality action and great timing.

When you hit a golf ball, one thing always remains constant and that is the 5 Laws and these represent how the club head is delivered to the ball at impact.

These laws are what cause the ball flight and spin

If You would you like to add distance to your drives and hit them longer and straighter, more often
