THERE is a theory out there, that all you need to be concerned about in your swing are the start, top and finish positions. Well, if you get this right, you will hit the ball better.
The swing generally has three vital positions and if you get them spot-on, you’ll hit the ball a lot more solidly.
Many a coach will tell you that the swing is made up of these three key positions and two moves that connect them, which are the backswing and through swing.
Each move is controlled by the two positions at end of it. Thus, the better your three positions, the better your golf swing will be.
Let us say, if you have perfect start and top of-the-swing positions, then the backswing that connects the two will also be perfect.
However, if you swing to a poor finish position then the move that connects them will have been flawed – the through swing.
If you improve your finish position, then the move that leads to it must also improve.
If you have one or more bad habits, it is your swing that will pay the price.
Improving these components, through the scale from bad to average and then as close as possible to good as you can get, you will improve your swing – and it will be the key to unlock your true ball-striking potential.
