Building A Repeatable Swing

Repeatable swing, Tiger Woods hits his irons straighter and more accurately than most pros. By swinging the club exactly the same way, he’s able to repeat his golf swing again and again and again. The more he repeats his swing, the more often he generates predictable results. For Tiger, predictable results mean more tournament wins and higher earnings.

Falling short to do so pressures you to make offsetting steps to return the clubface square to the ball. Five various other tricks to building a repeatable swing are remaining connected.

One common element among good players, along with reduced golf handicaps, is “remaining linked” during the swing. In other words, good players feature a one-piece takeaway from the ball, which I often stress in my golf tips and golf lessons.

Staying connected means that everything—your club hands, arms, and shoulders—moves away from the ball in unison as you start your backswing, ensuring that the clubhead travels on a wide arc away from the ball.

Set the club on the correct plane A repeatable swing establishes the club on the proper plane.

To do so, hinge or cock your wrists as you move into the backswing. As your arms proceed to turn upward and your body to transform, the wrists direct the clubhead skyward while your left shoulder changes the right shoulder at address. The angle of the shaft to the ball stays the same and the clubhead remains square to the swing’s path.

Repeatable SwingSwing into the top slot at the top of the backswing, your club moves into “the slot” position, where the club’s shaft is horizontal to the ground and parallel to the target line. Also, the clubface’s angle matches your arm angle.

Known as neutral or square, this is the suitable position to aim for at the top of the backswing. Additionally, your initial spinal column angle and your head placement remain the very same as at address.

Your shoulders are turned 90 degrees, while your hips are turned 45 degrees. The majority of your weight is over the appropriate foot as well as you feel resistance in your right knee and right upper leg.

Retain the force of the swing settle your weight smoothly back on your left side and start to unwind the upper body, as you move into the downswing.

Also, drop your right elbow (for right-handers) down to your side. This flattens the swing slightly. (This is Herb Pennick’s “Magic Move,” which I’ve previously covered in my golf tips.).

As you shift your weight to the left side, your right heel comes off the ground slightly. Try retaining the 90-degree angle between your left wrist and the club’s shaft as long as possible.

Your hands lead the club right into the ball at impact. Open your shoulders at impact It’s a usual idea that your shoulders need to return to a square position at impact. When giving golf lessons, I constantly resolve this point.

Your shoulders should inhabit a somewhat open position at impact, guaranteeing that the club has the space needed to travel on the correct course via the ball.

Also, important in building a repeatable swing is striking the ball cleanly and crisply. Work on this drill to improve your ball-striking. It’s a staple of my golf instruction.

Start by assuming the ideal impact position at address with one of your irons. Start by shifting your weight onto the left side (for right-handers) and lift the right heel off the ground a fraction. The hips and shoulders are slightly open with the head over the ball, creating the feeling of a good impact position.

Now, move into the backswing, shifting your weight to the right side. Return your weight to the left side, swinging the club down as well as through at impact. Relocate through the swing to a balanced setting, with your weight on your front foot.

Practice this drill again and again and again until you feel yourself swinging the club the same way. The building that repeatable swing produces precision, consistency, as well as a reduced golf handicap. Yours may not look like Tiger’s but it can produce more consistent and better results.
