Getting your golf swing transition correct will help your golf swing immensely. There are a few key fundamentals you can incorporate into your swing that will allow you to transition well and hit great golf shots consistently.

A good backswing leads to a good downswing. It's important to realize that a good downswing is not something which stands on it's own. It is actually connected to the entire golf swing and is quite dependent on what occurs in the backswing. A golfer who swings the club improperly in the backswing will have to compensate or make other errors in the downswing to try and offset this. Swinging the taylormade r11 irons back on a good path with good tempo in the first part of the swing will make a good downswing more natural and easier to achieve. The transition from backswing to downswing comes more smoothly when the backswing is in in order.

Keep the lower body stable. This is really important as you are starting your downswing. As a golfer prepares to start their downswing, the lower body should be stable and remain firmly planted. This works well when the knees are still bent and the weight is in the center or balls of the feet. The legs are a stable base for the body around which the club can then be swung down.

When the lower body starts to spin open too early from the start of the downswing, the arms can get stuck behind the body. Everything needs to come together at impact which is why the arms should start swinging the r11 irons down at the beginning of the downswing. The hips may start to move very slightly as the arms swing down. 90% of the time the problem comes from turning the hips too much or too early from the start of the downswing. Swinging the club down correctly from the top will help to get everything in a powerful position so you can launch the golf ball high and far into the air.

Get Your Swing In The Slot. This relates to being on the correct swing plane and path as the club approaches the golf ball towards impact. If the club is too far off of the proper path, it will be quite difficult to hit the ball in the middle of the clubface and produce good golf shots. The golf swing plane needs to be correct at the top of the golf swing while the club is making it's transition from backswing to downswing.

Maintain proper golf swing tempo. Amateur golfers tend to rush their transitions. It's helpful to think of finishing your backswing before you start your downswing. Sometimes the golf club will still be on the way back and the body has already started opening up towards the target. This is a result of rushing. Keep your tempo good and take your time on the backswing. Everything will work together better and your swing will become more effortless and natural.
