Tips From One Of The Tour’s Best Ball-Strikers

SYNC THE THROUGH-SWING
Once the backswing ends, what comes next happens in a flash, so it’s hard to be conscious of controlling body movement. But if you can get your through-swing to happen in the right sequence of motion, you’ll hit your best drives.

The order: Rotate the lower body toward the target, follow with the upper body, and then finally let the arms and club swing past the body through impact. A lot of this will happen naturally if you learn how to get the lower body moving first.I start with a bump of my hips toward the target, which initiates my lower-body rotation. It’s a bump, then turn. Do that, and your upper body, arms and club will get pulled along.

Don’t think about hitting the ball with your arms. It’s easier to control the shot with body rotation. The secret is making an efficient backswing and a synchronized downswing. Keeping it simple will help you hit it in the center of the face more often. That’s what really matters.
