Trouble with rotation


Trouble with rotation  

  By: William F on June 23, 2022, 9:03 a.m.

No matter how hard I try to slow down and do freezers I still Can’t open up as much as I’d like at impact which leads to stall and flip. Looks like there’s a bunch of similar videos but just want some thoughts as to what may be the major contributor to this issue. Thanks

Hi William,

There are a couple key relationships that help a player get more open. One is getting used to the body position at impact. In order to have the body open, the spine has to be rotated to the right at impact. (https://www.golfsmartacademy.com/golf-instruction/presetting-spine-rotation/).

Secondly, if you look at the position of you at impact compared to the big rotators, notice how low Collin's right shoulder is compared to his left? Can you film a video of you doing the drill - presetting spine rotation? We want to see if the big barrier is more from the body position or from the arm timing.

PS - for someone not very open, I really like a lot of your arm movements.

Happy Golfing,
