Golf Swing Sequence - How the Lower Body Works

This is a PREVIEW of a PREMIUM video. To watch the entire video, click here.


Struggle with coming over the top or don't know how to use your lower body in the golf swing? This video explains the golf swing sequence and the sequencing of the lower body while giving you two key drills to teach you exactly how to build a powerful lower body movement.

Video Practice Points
  • Proper golf swing sequencing is what builds effortless power in the golf swing
  • The hips fire first in the downswing, and simply carry the arms, shoulders & club along at first
  • As the hips decelerate, the shoulders speed up - momentum is passed from hips to shoulders to arms & finally the club
  • We see some of the same movement and weight shift in a baseball throw
  • Golf Swing Drill: Stride & stomp the left leg during the downswing
  • Once you master the stride/stomp, just lift the left heel & stomp it down without taking a step
  • Make the motion smaller and smaller to integrate it into your normal swing
  • The stomping motion activates the left glute & gets you loaded properly onto the left side

Golf Swing Sequence

How to sequence the golf swing is one of the most misunderstood aspects of the golf swing by most golfers. Unfortunately, it's also one of the most important. The golf swing sequence must follow a very specific progression or you will lose power in your golf swing and likely be off plane.

How the Golf Swing Sequence Effects Swing Plane

In general, the swing plane is one of the most common areas that amateur golfers struggle with when it comes to sequencing their golf swings incorrectly. The "red" segment in the video representing the shoulders is often the first part of the body that golfers will fire from the top of backswing. This leads to an "over the top" golf swing. Many golfers struggle for years doing all sorts of funny looking reroutes of the arms and club in a futile effort to fix a symptom that is caused by nothing more than a sequencing issue.

Yep, you read that right. At RotarySwing.com, we focus on fixing the CAUSE not addressing just the SYMPTOMS. So, rather than giving you an aspirin for a headache, we will go in and cut out the tumor causing the headache for a PERMANENT fix rather than a band-aid typed approach to golf instruction. So, to fix your over the top golf swing, we simply teach you how to sequence your golf swing correctly and all of a sudden, no more over the top!

The golf swing sequence in the downswing is extremely important, so make sure you focus on the drills in this golf instruction video to get your body working correctly and start hitting the ball better than ever today!

"I think he's come very close to a golf swing model that appears to be ideal...It's a big muscle, motor-driven swing that's repeatable...You don't have to be a super athlete."

"I started playing at 70 years old, at the beginning I was scoring around 100 plus... Following the RST 5 Step System my scores are in the 80 to 86 range. I am out-hitting guys in their 40's and 50's, thanks to you and your system. My back or other muscles never ache, nor am I tired after 18 holes. I am so glad I found your technique and system."
