What have you been currently working on? Golf Related please !

Uncle Lau :-

* Working on - the follow thru without looking up.

* Grounding both feet on the ground

* Constant putter feel when putting

*No to pick balls and focus on the game plan.

Cool

The correct swing plane!

Big improvements from a 'Wall Drill': just swing a club with your heels about a foot away from a wall (the wall is behind you of course!) and miss the wall on the back swing and the downswing... every time! it will ensure that your swing plane is upright and not flat, which gives you a chance to hit the ball from the correct position... says my teaching pro!

Up is the future!

The takeaway also... nice and low, move every body part in the same direction and activate your core muscles. No hands action during the takeaway !!!

"The dog is moving the tail, the tail cannot move the dog".

Get it?

Personally I think there are some missing link in the golf swing. There are a lot of emphasis on take off, back swing and impact, but hardly any thing on after impact. Where and how the club head should go, like straight, pull left, push right, pull straight, etc, etc.

How the club head move after impact will affect how your ball flies.

Okay so for my minute of wisdom let me explain the metaphor:

"The dog is moving the tail, the tail cannot move the dog".

This has to do with the correct sequence in the golf swing.
First you core muscles activate your hips and set your whole body in movement, pulling the shoulders, then the arms, and finally the hands. The power comes from the whole body.

Most amateur golfers do exactly the opposite: hit the ball with their hands and arms, with little or no body turn. The big muscles need to move the small muscles, not the opposite. And then you don't hit the ball at all with your hands: the ball is simply on the way of the club head propelled by a massive downswing with your full body attacking.

That's for my 2 minutes of golf wisdom.

Applying the wisdom is something else by the way!!!

I'm a beginner. all the while, my impression was the first movement should be the hands, arms, shoulders then the hip. The hip turn only slightly. That's the "loaded" position.

To unwind, the movement should be hip, shoulder, arms then the hands. hip turn slightly. hitting the ball (releasing the lag position) and follow through after impact.
