One of our facebook followers recently made a comment that they are working on achieving correct swing technique after years of playing hockey.
I can imagine that all those years of playing hockey and developing muscle memory would certainly add to the difficulty of grasping this already unnatural feeling motion. Since I too am working on building my swing and have not yet perfected a full upswing I asked our PGA Pro Aaron Cox to create a tip to help us all out. Although there are many elements to the golf swing I requested that Aaron consider what the 3 key basic elements are so that we can perfect these and build additional elements over time. Even three things can be a lot to think about in such a short period of time so I tend to work my way through by practicing the first then adding the second and later the third.
A big thank you to Aaron for recording this tip for us. I hope it helps you out!
In summary the 3 key elements are:
1. Take away – focus on arm and club position
2. Upswing – rotate through spine while focussing on shoulder and arm position
3. Follow through – extend your right arm across your chest, focus on club position – aiming at your target and rotate your body finishing with your weight on your left side.
