Maybe one day when you watch a golf tournament on television you will note that all of the pros make this type of swing with every club in their bag (including the driver). The reason that they do is because it allows for a complete and natural release of the wrists through impact which produces the desired crack-the-whip effect for increased distance. It also produces a dramatic increase in ball striking consistency since there are far fewer moving parts. The dreaded lateral sway that you see in 95% of amateur golfers greatly inhibits the ability to release the wrists through impact resulting in lessened distance and an open club-face. Consistent ball striking is virtually non-existent with a lateral sway since your timing would have to be perfect on every shot when moving laterally through impact.

There is another point to notice when you watch pros play, and that is that they use a center-of-stance ball position on the vast majority of their shots. The only exceptions would be bunker play, a short pitch or chip, and with the driver which from golf clubs for sale online shop. One reason is that the lowest portion of the swing arc is directly in the center of the stance ensuring that the club is coming down into the ball as opposed to scooping it. The other, and most important, reason is that this is where the wrists naturally release which squares the club-face and adds considerable power to the shot. The combination of a stationary swing and center-of-stance ball position ensures consistent and solid ball contact every time and will take your game to a whole new level.

The key to making an around-the-body swing is proper posture. This means a straight back with the buttocks protruding slightly as if you were going to sit down on a stool. Unfortunately, we have all been taught to use a forward ball position with most of our taylor made r11 driver which dictates a lateral sway in our swings in order to "catch up" to the forward ball position at impact. This lateral sway and reaching for the forward ball requires a rounded back posture which has been ingrained strongly in our swing over the years.

In order to develop a correct and powerful swing this with clubs from r11 driver for sale online store ingrained swing posture must be overcome since it is impossible to rotate your torso and arms around a stationary base while having a rounded back. The only way to undo a poor swing posture and replace it with the correct one is through time spent at the range and swing repetition while consciously setting your posture on each swing. As I have stated before, it is impossible to institute a swing change or correct a fault on the course.
