If you're looking for ways to improve your golf swing, understanding the proper use of your arms during the backswing is crucial. In this video from our Golf Swing Tips series, Coach Mike shows you how to combine a proper turn with arm movement that is essential for generating power and improving your overall swing.
Many golfers make the mistake of rotating too much or relying too much on their arms without proper body turn. To avoid these issues, you can use a simple tool like a gravity fit and a band underneath your left foot to help demonstrate the proper arm movement and body turn.
To begin, start by taking your grip and keeping your left arm in its natural position, which is not too far across your body. You can then use the gravity fit and the band to help you feel the proper tension in your left foot and create the right amount of rotation and arm movement.
When using the band, try to pull it away diagonally from the ball and up towards the sky, creating resistance and rotation in your core and shoulders. This movement will help you generate power and create a more consistent swing.
By combining the proper turn and arm movement, you can avoid common mistakes and improve your overall swing. Remember to focus on the rotation, width of the swing, and arm-body connection to achieve the best results.
