Just checking to make sure that a FULLY ROTATED RELAXED BALANCED FINISH continues to be one of your major goals while you train and play. It’s not something that you ‘try’. It’s not something that you should get to later….
A FULLY ROTATED RELAXED BALANCED FINISH needs to be right in the forefront of your thoughts (in all likely hood).
If your balance is a solid and consistent as say, Rory McIlroy or Serio Garcia…..wait, I just heard both of them talk about how very often ALL they think about is finishing in balance…. OK, if your balance is as good as Freddy Couples or VJ Singh, maybe you can focus on something else.
FULLY ROTATED is so important because it’s the pivotal axis (forward leg) that slings the arms and club on a predictable path as it rotates. If you are tight, or if there is tension that stops that rotation, you MUST make compensations to hit the ball (chaotic). TRAIN YOUR ROTATION on the driving range and on the golf course (practice swings).
RELAXED is an indication that PHYSICS ruled the swing. RELAXED is having all the weight on the forward leg, comfortable enough to hang out for a while with soft arms and shoulders. TRAIN a more relaxed finish. Hang out at the end of every swing and WORK at putting yourself into the correct position. After time, your body will seek out that position. YOU MUST BUILD THE SKILL OF A FULLY ROTATED RELAXED BALANCED FINISH.
BALANCED FINISH that becomes more and more consistent over time. As your BALANCE improves, the body complies more and more to GRAVITY AND ROTATION, offering you the potential for more CONSISTENCY!!!!
Balance is not a cure all, but it is a pre requisite to building a PHYSICS COMPLIANT golf swing. If you are not FIGHTING to improve your balance, it will get worse.
Final note: If any of you are getting older, I highly recommend working very hard on your FULLY ROTATED, RELAXED BALANCED FINISH. I am aging, so I’m constantly training a full finish so that I maintain and expand my rotation and balance. If I didn’t fuss over it so much, my balance would diminish and my flexibility would deteriorate at a faster rate….Bad news for a golf swing.
OK, enough of the lecture. Go PLAY GOLF, Stop THINKING golf swing
