The Two Most Important Elements Of the Golf Swing
There are a lot of good instruction out there, but it never get to the core of “WHY”.
During a one hour lesson, the instruction will fix a flaws and send you on your way.
Within a week you have forgotten those fixes and reverted back to your old ways.
Why? Because there is no “WHY” behind what is being taught, just band-aid fixes.
Once you discover the “WHY” behind the golf swing you are able to fully understand
the golf swing and you are on your way to becoming a better golfer.
Setting Up Properly – Aiming Correctly
A large majority of weekend golfers tend to aim well right of the target line
Many golfers still believe that the draw will go farther than a straight or fade shot.
The reason is because, the natural tendency for most
golfers is to hit the ball a square to slightly open face,
relative to the swing path.
The average golfer is putting themselves in a really
bad position by aiming so far right.
Hitting a nice draw is great if you understand the ball
flight laws and have developed the skill.
Correct alignment is the key to hitting good shots.
The turn back and turn through is crucial in getting your impact correct.
You want a free turn back, with slight weight shift, and a free turn through
You must control your center of gravity by eliminating a lot of side-to-side motion
Your ball position should be centered with short clubs and moved forward with longer clubs
Your stance should be about shoulder width and weight balanced ( roughly 55-45 )
Your right shoulder will be slightly lower than the left shoulder
There are two major components to a proper turn:
- Backswing ( turn back )
- Transition ( turn through )

Understanding Swing Path ( your path to better golf )
The path that you swing the golf club on is only responsible for a small percentage of the golf balls direction.
Understanding that the direction of the golf ball is not primarily influenced by the swing path is a great
starting point to playing better golf.
Your golf ball flight is controlled by two factors and you must
know what they are to control you ball flight and become a
Eliminate your slice, forever!
There are two things you must do the control your ball flight,
its initial direction and its ending direction (amount of curve):
- Clubface Orientation ( where clubface points at impact )
line the ball will start on
- Swing Path ( the path that you swing the club on )
determines amount of curve on the ball
How understanding your swing path can help you play better golf.
Upwards of 80% of your initial golf ball direction is determined by where the clubface is pointing at impact
and the other 15%-20% is influenced by the relationship between the clubface direction and swing path.
Your swing path, in relationship to the clubface direction, determines how much curve or spin is put on
the golf ball. The greater the difference between the clubface direction and the swing path at impact,
the larger the amount of curve is imparted on the ball.
There are three different relationships between the clubface and the swing path at impact:
- Pointing in the same direction as the swing path ( we refer to this as square )
- Pointing to the right of the swing path ( we refer to this as open )
- Pointing to the left of the swing path ( we refer to this as closed )
