Rory McIlroy demonstrates the correct weight shift

By Darren

In many ways, this is THE most important lesson in golf.


It's all about how to transfer your weight.

And 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 one of Australia's best golf teacher's he asked me what “weight” was?

Why this was important is because he changed my concept and hence my body could then accept it.
