Golf Hip Turn In The Backswing

By | on April 30, 2014 | 2 Comments | FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites (see below)


In this tip, I explain about the golf hip turn in the backswing.  This is absolutely critical because turning the hips too much doesn’t allow you to create the torque necessary in a consistent powerful golf swing.

Learning this is the complete opposite to what you think and feel.  You will want to turn the hips more as you go back because this gives you a powerful feeling in the arms.  The problem is, you will just be whacking the ball instead of using your body.

What you should be doing to stabilizing the lower body and coiling the upper body until it’s tight.  This tightness is the torque you need so your golf swing will repeat.  So although your swing will feel tight this is the correct feeling that should not be avoided.  Make sure you really work hard on the hip turn and it will pay off in a big way in the future.

      Very good. Keep it tight and compact. Then you get torque which repeats 100% of the time in life. The farther you go back the more you will try to whack at it with the arms because they have to pull down to catch back up to the body rotation.
