The Connected Body Swing – July 2012 Golf Tip by Christy Erb

MAINTAIN SAME RELATIONSHIP OF CLUB TO BELLY BUTTON:

To do this, visualize a pane of glass that extends from your belly button to the ball.  Grip the pane of glass with your hands flat against it on each side.  Swing the pane of glass back and through, keeping hands pressing against glass, keeping it on your belly button and in line with your sternum.  Your hands will ride up the pane of glass on backswing and again in your follow through, but never come off the glass.  In doing this you override the temptation to slap at or hit at the ball, and rather swing through with the club as an extension of your body turn.

—  Teaches you to use the big muscles rather than the erratic, smaller hand and arm muscles  —

Now don’t forget to get out and practice!
