What's Weight

By Darren

Today let's talk about how to transfer your weight.

After instructing thousands of golfers - including PGA Pros -- I have realized 95% of ALL golf swing problems are due to incorrect weight shift.

You see my swing fault was a reverse pivot or tilt and in my early day's I was instructed to do a drill that involved standing with my feet together behind the ball whilst swinging to the top of my backswing and then stepping toward the target as I made the downswing and hit the ball.

While this drill would produce the required hitting angle when I hit balls from the correct set up the reverse pivot would return because I really didn't understand the information and it was not through a lack of effort (I was doing 300-400 reps a day!)

Actually what happened is my body rejected the new movement because it had not received a pure understanding from the mind

Then came the turning point in my improvement...... in the first lesson with a new golf teacher he asked me what “weight” was?

Understanding it was mass I then movend the upper mass back, rather than the lower shift and my swing was well on the way to being fixed.

So be carefull, are you wasting your time just doing drills.
