Hey Quite The Chap here for GolfersRX. We’re back with another video in the Off-Season Series. Rotation. Rotation. Rotation. Get more rotation in your golf swing.
I didn’t realize how much I was swaying in my back swing until a friend pointed it out. Now, it wasn’t an enormous sway but it was enough to get me a little off balance and a little off center. Which caused some issues from time to time. So how do we get a better rotation in our swing…well…
In this video by the Golf Yogi, Mark shows us how to get some great rotation in our upper body during our golf swing. If we don’t have enough rotation in our upper body, we tend to compensate somewhere else. Mark points out that you don’t need to spend hours on these two exercises, a few reps a day will go a long way.
This second video by Mark helps us to rotate around our axis which is going to help in consistency and BONUS — longer drives! The great thing that Mark does is keep these stretches/exercises super simple.
Now that we’re all stretched out and we’re able to rotate around a stable axis, let’s add a golf club or two and a couple drills from me. In this first drill we’re going to rotate while gripping halfway down a club. This is going to provide us with a couple checkpoints in our swing to make sure we’re rotating properly. While at the same time getting rid of any excess movement.
The second video and drill is all about rotating through the ball and stopping ourselves from lunging. Our rotation is not just about the backswing but also our rotation into and through the ball. If we can complete our rotation through to our finish, we’re going to find a lot more consistency in our ball flight.
Okay folks, that’s it for this off-season video. We’ve covered balance and now rotation in our golf swing. How fitting. If we can rotate in balance during our golf swing we’ve got half this thing figured out, right. Meh, we may have more work ahead of us. Stay tuned for next months video recap.
Thanks for watching. If you like this format, give us a thumbs up, leave a comment, or let us know what you’d like to work on in the off-season!
Until next, keep it simple!
