Playing hockey can train some great things in your golf swing. Most hockey players that I have tested have great sequencing, and usually have good hip speed. But there are a few major things that hockey players struggle with. As Liam Mucklow said recently, "hockey players love to get 'steep and deep'". This is because it is a very helpful condition for hitting a good slap shot, but it's not helpful for hitting a golf ball correctly. The three issues I see that ex-hockey players face are typically.
- Excessively closed clubface (especially in takeaway)
- Forward lunge
This package of swing faults can be frustrating because often times it results in fairly solid mid irons, but struggles with both the wedges and driver swings.
