Another good drill

A good drill for getting your body to turn in sync is to allow/feel/be aware of your left shoulder moving away from the target, while you right hip moves toward it to start the downswing.

It promotes everything turning together, proper weight transfer, while not making you slide or get in front of it.

Watching Ernie Els made me think of this.

    I’m not following this…how the left shoulder moves away from the target at the start of the downswing….can you add a bit to that?

    I’ve always liked the idea of the left shoulder turning against the resistance of the right leg. Then the right leg initiated the turn forward but kind of “tugging” on the left shoulder. The lower body then carries the turn forward. They do not move separately, but turn together. Like a marionette puppet being pulled by it’s string. The puppet master is doing the pulling, but both move together as a result.
