Tackle This Critical Skill for Consistency In Your Swing

By on April 11, 2014

In this video I tackle a critical skill for consistency in your golf swing: Transition.

This is where the backswing ends and the forwardswing starts. Because the nature of golf instinctively makes us quick, this is an often overlooked and detrimental part of the swing for a lot of golfers.

Watch the video below and put these drills into practice. Let me know in the comments section how the drills work for you.

    I watched a couple of your videos and liked what I heard. I then watched the transition video and liked it. I could see the smooth transition made during your swing and liked it.

    I enjoyed your video. It helps a lot to Slow Down on the First practice swing, then maybe 50% on the second practice swing. Then, either take a full swing on the third practice swing or just line up and take the full swing at the ball. This has worked for me to develop some muscle memory and have confidence for my actual shot. Thanks for your golf lessons on line.
