Think about the best golf shot you ever hit. Chances are you can remember every detail and how every part of your swing felt. But that’s all gone now. Your swing used to be a work of art, like Ernie Els, now it more closely resembles Charles Barkley. So what happened?
What you’re likely experiencing is a problem in the way your body moves. How your body moves (or doesn’t move) is the greatest influencer of how you are able to swing the club. The root cause could be a number of things ranging from an old injury to your body needing a tune-up. Regardless of the cause, we want to help you fix it.
Fixing an issue with mobility isn’t always as simple as you think. Most golfers who are having problems with their swing tend to try three things:
- Increase Their Range Time – When your golf swing doesn’t feel right, swinging a club over and over isn’t going to help.
- Adjust Their Swing – Making changes to your swing on the fly usually does more harm than good, and it certainly won’t help you here.
- Take Lessons – While a good golf pro or swing coach will be able to deconstruct your swing or help you with adjustments, what you really need is someone to coach you on the way you move.
The way your body moves is at the foundation of everything you do. We’ve mentioned the typical ways a golfer tries to fix their swing, as well as why it usually doesn’t work. So what can you do?
