Hey Quite The Chap here for GoflersRX. We’ve all heard that a balanced diet is good for your health. Well, a balanced swing is also good for your health.
A balanced swing allviates a lot of health ailments you probably didn’t think were golf related…like high blood pressure. Anger issues. Chromdomia. Grey hairitis. I broke my 9 iron over my knee again syndrome. That’s an expensive one. All joking aside…a balanced swing is a very important aspect of a solid and consistent golf game.
A great way to develop a balanced swing is the left foot right foot shuffle. Address your ball and instead of taking the club back, move the club forward along with your back foot, then swing them both back, switching to your front foot, and then again swing through with your club and your back foot. You’re essentially swinging on one foot the entire time.
An even easier way to develop a balanced swing is to do it with the Balance Rod. Whats great about this training aid is that it’s forcing your body to keep it’s balance as you make golf swings without you having to think about it. When you take the balance rod away…you feel more grounded. Your body is using it’s legs to stabilize itself instead of your spine or hips or some other body part that is in fact knocking you off balance.
Until next time, keep it simple.
