Key Stage One of The Golf Swing


The Take Back, creating the all important 1st link

With a great set-up this move can prove to be simple.

As you move the clubhead away from the ball your main objective is to keep the clubhead travelling inside the ball to target line but outside of the hands

Continue until the shaft reaches a point where it is parallel to the ground and on the line of your toes, which coincidently is also parallel to your ball to target line.

The butt end of the club at this point should be at a point directly above the big toe of your back foot and your hands at a height that is level with the middle of your thigh. 

The legs will have moved very little (or not at all at this point). 

The leading edge of the club should be very slightly toed in anti clockwise from the vertical.

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
