Winter Training Series Article
Many golfers tend to “hibernate” and snooze on their golf swing during the winter months, but you could be missing some of the most effective and important practice time of the year. As we have been preaching for years at RotarySwing.com , you don’t need to hit a bucket of golf balls to get meaningful results in your golf game. In fact, massive improvement can be had by watching and practicing alongside our new WINTER GOLF TRAINING series.
It’s important to know that every Golf Training Drill we are going to cover in this video can be done indoors with little more than the help of a mirror so you can watch yourself execute the proper movements and positions.
If you follow along with our six week master course, we promise to have your golf swing revamped by the time you tee it up in the Spring. All you need to is focus in on these core building block components and commit to using our program.
Proper Golf Swing Set Up … In order to get started on the right “foot” you might need to brush up on the setup fundamentals of RST by visiting some of the core videos on stance, width and setup. Building off of these elements, and focusing on proper axis tilt will set your swing up for a truly fantastic swing.
Move Analysis: The goal of our first golf move is to virtually walk yourself into the proper golf setup by repeating your proper golf setup position at least 25 times. This creates the necessary golf muscle memory that will make your swing effortless and repeatable.
Lift your right heel and smash it down so you can feel the assertive move that is necessary to load up your hip. While it might seem strange, but the key component of the drill is to understand the need for hip turn that compliments the turn of your torso.
To reinforce the movement, we recommend a medicine ball that will help with muscle memory.
From a down the line view, you should notice that you should be lifting your left heal and performing a direct lateral slide. Again, the feeling and goal is to load up the hip and activate your hips a core.
Keep in mind: the weight transfer we’re after with our “foot stomp” move is only an exaggeration that will teach your body which muscles need to be engaged in order to reach a proper and powerful golf takeaway.
Setup… Lift… Stomp… Rotate… These are the key terms and steps that you need to focus on while practicing this video at home.
