This month we will look at the role of the legs which is an important component of the golf swing. Do not underestimate the role they play, they act as a support mechanism for your golf swing. Remembering the point they should be supportive rather than active. Too much leg movement will result in the upper body having to compensate which will lead to inconsistent shots.
So lets look at how we can create a good platform for your swing.
  • At address ensure feet are shoulder width apart, knees slightly flexed, with knees pointing out towards the toes.
  • During the backswing retain the right knee flex as this will help the arms and club stay on the correct swing plane  (path of the club).
  • The left foot stays planted as you start the downswing, this helps you start the downswing correctly and gives you extra power.
  • During the downswing do not let your legs drive towards the target, let them stay under your hips as you rotate into the impact and through to the finish.
