    Since most golfers who swing from the right are right side dominant, doesnt it make sense to focus on our dominant side? ie its the right palm facing the sky at the top of the BS that ensures
    we swing inside the ball.

    Its a fact, if your only conscious thought at the top of the BS is to keep the right palm facing the sky (waiter holding the tray), you will never go OTT.

    Okay, you have a Tour pro-like transition… now what are you going to do about your pot belly which forces you to swing around it and slice badly?

Lesson of the Day: Better body positions during the swing = more consistent shots

Published

on

In our “Lesson of the Day” video series with V1 Sports, we match a different GolfWRX member with a different V1 Sports instructor. It’s extremely important to both V1 Sports and GolfWRX to help golfers improve their games and shoot lower scores, and there’s no better way to do that than getting lessons. While we not only want to provide free lessons to select GolfWRX members, we want to encourage and inspire golfers to seek professional instruction. For instructions on how to submit your own video for a chance at getting a free lesson from a V1 Sports instructor as part of our Lesson of the Day series, CLICK HERE.

This week, V1 Pro Mark Heinemann for this week takes a look at WRXer Jon Hughes’ swing, offering both analysis and suggestions for improvement.

About the pro

Mark is an Advanced PGA Professional based out of Swing Studio Killarney, Co Kerry South West Ireland. Mark utilizes V1 software, Flightscope, Boditrak and Sam Putt Lab when coaching players of varied ability from beginner through to professional and also offers online coaching programs.

Video context

Looking at Jon’s swing for the first time I was very impressed and I could see that he has played golf to a high level and still maintains a single digit handicap. I felt that Jon would benefit from greater consistency and a tighter shot dispersion if he was to improve his body action. Jon’s address position was generally very sound but an increase in the amount of pressure in to his lead (left) foot would reduce his sway off the ball in the early part of his back swing. Jon’s initial takeaway involved quite a sway into his right side from which he never really recovered and got stuck behind the ball at impact resulting in a club path that was a little too much to the right from resulting in pushes or hooks depending on timing and release at impact.

Student’s action plan/Key points

  1. Increase pressure into lead foot at address, ideally 60%
  2. Reduce the body sway in the takeaway and turn around a central axis (see drills)
  3. Practice hitting fades in practice
  4. Schedule a Trackman / Flightscope session to see that club path numbers are more down and to the left, not excessively to the right.
