Clear The Way

Clear The Way You can’t hit big drives if your body gets stuck. That’s why I make a point of rotating my hips completely open on the downswing. This allows my arms to fully extend through the hitting area. Not only do my hips clear, but they remain level, which is key. By rotating through on a level plane, my right shoulder, arm and hip are able to continue adding power through impact. This prevents my body from getting stuck, which would limit the potential for clubhead speed by forcing me to hit only with my hands.

  1. I have tried for years to get off my right foot and turn my hip open at impact without success. I am a practice nut so it is not from lack of trying it just seems there is something lacking in my swing that would allow me to turn into the correct position @ impact. Please help!

  2. Hi, I’m working on the same area since my hip replacement. Heres the deal: From the proper loaded right side top of the swing hold the shoulders back, a little hip slide helped by dropping the hands down and then fire the hips away around to the all important balanced finished Balanced finished is the key!!! Pose for a photograph Up on the right toe with most of the weight on the left side. Balanced finish and hold it til the ball hits the ground. JV
