Perfecting Your Golf Swing

On the driving range I often see golfers swinging to the top of their backswing and stopping and trying to see if the golf club is positioned correctly. Naturally this is a very, very hard way to tell if the backswing is in “the slot” so to speak.

If in the past you’ve struggled to know if your golf backswing is correct or not then today I’ve got a great golf drill that will allow you to quickly and easily check it.

To do this golf drill you simply have to swing back to the top of your backswing and stop and hold your backswing position for a couple of seconds.

Then from this position simply slowly loosen your grip and let the shaft fall down. If the golf club hits you on the tip of your right shoulder then that strongly indicates that the top of your backswing position is good. If the golf club misses your body when you do this then that is a sure sign that your backswing is too flat. And conversely if your club hits your head or neck that indicates that your swing is too upright.

Now if after doing this backswing exercise you find that your top of the backswing position is not where it should be then please don’t do this:

Do not try to manipulate what is happening near the top of your backswing to get the club in a good position, because you must understand that the golf swing is a chain reaction. Let me explain that some more by looking at what happens when you impact the golf ball.

The impact position you get into when you swing is a result of the downswing position that you were in. The position you get into in the downswing is a result of how you transitioned from your backswing position to the downswing. The position you get into at the top of your backswing is simply the result of the position you were in half way into your backswing. Where the club is half way into your backswing is simply the result of how you took the club away. And finally, the way you took the club away is largely a result of your setup.

You see, you can’t take one position in your golf swing in isolation and then try and fix that because the positions that you got into before that determined the future positions. Instead what you need to do is systematically work on getting each phase of the swing the best it can be, working from the setup, take away and on from there. If you do that you’ll naturally and automatically get into a great top of the swing position.

My Core Strength Is Just Fine Thank You, But My Golf Swing Needs
Help!

Some of us may have an idea about what core training entails.
Swing coaches and trainers talk about it in relation to the
swing, but what actually is the core?

When the question is asked, “What is the core?” The most common
answer is, “Your abdominals.” The core can be defined as the
region of the body that incorporates the hips, abdominals,
obliques, and lower back.

The definition of the core indicates that it is an anatomical
region of the body. The top of your chest to your hips is the
easiest way to think about the core region. This part of the
body includes numerous muscles in each of these defined regions.
Think about all those little back muscles that your doctor
speaks about when you are injured. Those muscles are part of the
core. When you see those infomercials for the “latest and
greatest” abdominal machine, those machines are supposedly going
to give you that “six pack.” The muscles of the “six pack” are
part of your core. These two regions of the body are the easy
parts of the core to understand, but what about the other parts?

The general definition of the core indicates that it encompasses
ALL the muscles between your chest and lower body. Keeping this
definition in mind, what other muscles would be incorporated in
the core region? Probably the easiest way to do this is to
create a mental image of the body and then look at what muscles
are in this region of the body.

The hips are part of the core, and all the muscles in this
region of the body are part of the core. The muscles within the
hips contain the hip flexors, hip extensors, adductor complex,
abductor complex, gluteus maximus, gluteus minimus, gluteus
medius, origin of the hamstrings, and origin of the quads. Quite
a few muscles, wouldn’t you say?

Currently, we have the muscles of the hips, low back, and the
“six pack,” but there are more. We can essentially factor two
more muscle groups into the core region. Probably the most under
recognized muscles in the core region are termed the “deep
stabilizing muscles” of the spine.

The easiest way to think of these muscles is the following:
Think about “peeling away the top layer of your abdominals (the
“six pack”) and the top layer of your lower back muscles.
Underneath these muscles would be another group of muscles that
function to stabilize the spine. The number of muscles in this
region of the body is numerous. The names of a few are:
transverse abdominus, erector spinae, and spinaleus. Again,
these are just a few of the muscles in this region. If we were
to name all of them, it could easily fill this whole page.

We have one final group of muscles that comprise the core
region, and they are on the sides of the body (the place where
we quite often develop those “love handles”). You now know where
these muscles are, and we anatomically describe these muscles as
your obliques. The two major muscles in this region are the
external and internal obliques. In addition, you will find other
muscles within this region such as the serratus.

At this point you should have a good understanding of the core
region, the muscles groups of the core, and the specific muscles
contained within this region. Now we move on to the functioning
of the core in regards to golf.

First question, why are these muscles so important to golf?
Before we answer that question, let’s look at this region of the
body in a little more detail.

A vast number of muscles comprise this region of the body as we
know at this point in time. Some of you probably have some first
hand experience with the muscles of the core. If you have ever
had a lower back injury, you know what I am talking about.

What we need to understand at this point, before entertaining
the question of the core’s involvement in the golf swing, is the
following:

Realize that all of the core muscles function as a unit, meaning
they work together to essentially stabilize and move the body.
The movements that this region of the body is involved in are
vast. Any movement other than probably lying on your back
utilizes the core the cores in some way, shape, or form. Let me
explain this thought. We know that the core region is involved
in stabilizing the spine, right? Well with that thought in mind,
your spine needs to be stabilized in any upright posture you
place your body. For example, as I am writing this article, I am
sitting at my computer. For my body to maintain this “seated,
upright position” my spine must be stabilized. The muscles of
the core region perform this activity.

When we begin to talk about the body moving is where we can
really see the core becoming active. Just think of some simple
activities like walking, bending over to pick up a newspaper,
etc. All of these activities are utilizing the core to stabilize
the spine, bend, turn, rotate the body, and transfer energy from
your feet to the upper body. (Don’t worry too much about this
thought; it is for another article.) The core is integrated as a
unit and involved in almost every movement that you perform in
your daily lives. I hope by this time you can see the importance
of the core when it comes to human movement. Now let us move on
to a topic of more interest to all of us, and that is the golf
swing.

Looking at the golf swing, the core region of the body is
considered “the engine of the body.” It is responsible for the
balance, stability, and rotation required to swing a golf club.
From address to follow through, this section of the body plays a
large part in the execution of the swing.

If you have an understanding of what muscles comprise the core
region and their importance when it comes to human movement,
then you will undoubtedly see the importance of the core as it
pertains to the golf swing. This little discussion has probably
provided you with the understanding that there is more than
“meets the eye” when discussing the core region
