    “Early extension” teaching seems a ticket to chiropractic therapy.

    I’ll stay with stretching, left shoulder under chin (righthander), and tempo.

      Yup… because most rec golfers cannot maintain a spinal tilt throughout the downswing. The gotta stand up to relieve the spine of the torque crunch that good golfers can maintain. It’s usually caused by a soft blown belly and stiff hip joints frozen into a sedentary position and cannot apply torsion to the spine.

    This video doesn’t address what causes early extension. For me it was the club starting down too steep. Until I corrected the underlying issue, no early extension drills would work.

      It’s not “early extension”, it’s unflexing of the hips and knees in the downswing coming into final release and impact.
      95% or recreational golfers “stand up” approaching impact as a natural instinct. They cannot maintain hip and knee flex because it would crunch their spine as they attempt to maintain a spinal tilt. The result is a toe hit and the toe gouging into the ground.

WATCH: The best way to start your swing

Published

When people think of how to start the swing, they often focus on the direction or shape. This can lead to a disjointed action. In this video, Martin Ayers of Northbound Golf shows and explains that instead, the best way to start your swing is to begin in sequence. This beginning sequence maintains the cohesion needed for a more powerful and precise swing motion.
