    Good instruction, Mike. For my own usage, I add “don’t decelerate”, and “don’t disconnect”.

Faults and Fixes: The pivot

Published

on

I would like to introduce the “Faults and Fixes” series I will be doing for GolfWRX showing you some of the most common problems I see on the lesson tee. These are all issues most of us have experienced at one time or another during our golf careers, and I’m offering simple thoughts on how to eliminate them from your game once and for all.

In this week’s video, we’ll discuss the pivot. One of the biggest pivot issues is when the lower body races out from under the player, causing the head to fall backward during impact. This can move the low point rearward and cause a faulty release.

So, sit back, watch the video, and enjoy!
