The downswing is one of the most misunderstood parts to the golf swing — especially the transition from the top of the backswing into the start of the downswing. Disaster is likely to strike if you make these moves in the wrong order using the wrong parts of the body.

This video will clear up some of the questions you may have about how you should be starting down and then continuing through impact and to the finish.

    I did a quick, unscientific sampling of top golfers’ swings on YouTube slo-mo videos. Tiger Woods (from 2000), Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy. Of them, only DJ moves his head forward in transition, and not as much as Ged Walters’ demonstration. All move their hips forward in transition, but 3 of these 4 keep their heads back. (Some lower their heads, along with the whole body, in a “power squat”.) So if this is good advice, some of the best players in the world are not taking it.

    I was taught to keep my head in one position with little movement, I see that yours moves quite a bit. Your thoughts?

    This video was a really big help for me .. just to remember to transition the lower part .. I have been losing a ton of power and at the top of my back swing it would cause me to bring my hands more over the top which is no good.. video helped a lot ..

Want more consistency from your golf swing? Try practicing “L” swings

Published

on

If you are struggling with consistency and/or club-face control, then “L Swings” are just what you need. “L Swings” are a great way to learn about club-face awareness and centeredness of contact. They will simplify the swing process and provide you with the framework to build a proper and repeatable golf swing.

For extra feedback, I recommend utilizing a powdered spray on the club-face (see below) while performing the “L Swings.” This will allow you to see exactly where you are contacting the ball on the club-face.

WATCH: The difference between Neutral, Strong, and Weak grips

Published

on

We have all heard that “good golf begins with a good grip,” but all too often information on how to grip the club lacks personalization. In a series of Instant Swing Fixes, I will be going through all areas of the golf swing to help golfers personalize the scientific information that leads to these conclusions of how to best swing a golf club.

First up is this 5-minute show on Grip Types: Neutral, Weak, Strong and how they affect the rotation of the club. Next up will be “Face Squaring” followed by “Methods of Taking Your Grip.”

Unlocking Your Golfing Potential: Why golf lessons with instructors don’t work

Published

on

On the first episode of our new “Unlocking Your Golfing Potential” podcast series, Coach Will Robins and Cordie Walker talk about what a golf coach is, and why getting one might be just what you need to to actually achieve your golfing goals. The current model of golf instruction is scheduling a one hour lesson and letting that instructor know what you want to work on… but Coach Will explains why that just doesn’t work if you want lower scores.
