Golf Swing Fix
Used by 35 PGA Tour Players. Swing Positions Are Great, But Smooth Transition Is Better
Arguably the most important aspect of the golf swing is transition. I preach to all of my players the importance of set up, impact and tempo. All great players incorporate drills every day to practice these aspects and you can to!
There are many training aids out there for set up and impact, but I had not found a training aid effective to give a golfer great feedback for tempo until a couple years ago. Former PGA Tour Rookie of the Year and 2-time PGA Tour winner Gabriel Hjerstedt introduced me to his swing trainer over Thanksgiving when I was back home in Arizona two years ago. We discussed how golf has became full of gadgets and mechanics that are not necessary to make golfers better. He teaches numerous PGA Tour players such as Graham Daleat and Vijay Singh, as well as the weekend golfer. Gabe said that the first two things that get off for tour players when they start playing bad is basic, their alignment and TRANSITION.
As a player, my main swing thought was simple, have a smooth, deliberate transition from the top of my swing to the down swing, and I would more often than not hit that shot solid and the direction I wanted to. But there was never a training aid or device to give me feedback. When I started coaching, I express the importance of tempo and transition but amateurs have a hard time understanding what proper transition should FEEL like. Gabe sent me one and now I live and die by this training aid!
What is transition?
Transition is the top of your golf swing. All players must set the club properly at the top of the swing, if you can do that, you don’t have much to think about on the down swing! READ MORE….
