Do you struggle with inconsistent ball striking or consistently poor contact with the ball? Perhaps you often hit heavy or fat shots, only to hit the ball thin later in the round. At GolfTEC, we’ve studied thousands of golfers to understand what leads to many of these inconsistencies for amateur players. A key contributor is how much a golfer moves their hips towards the target during the downswing. Leading to much of the inconsistency in contact, amateur players tend not to move their hips towards the target enough as they are striking the ball. Better players use their hips to help them strike down on the ball and swing to the right, creating a nice drawing ball flight that so many of us desire.
As featured on the Golf Channel, Andrew Marr, Director of Instruction at GolfTEC San Diego, offers a great drill to help you utilize your hips throughout your entire golf swing to produce more consistent and better ball striking in the video below:
