Golf skill trumps golf swing all day. Have you ever gotten your butt kicked by a golfer with a swing that looks like an octopus falling out of a tree? Well, his skills were better than yours. Period.
The downswing, specifically the transition, is wickedly misunderstood. Here’s the truth.
Folks, you have got to get the club to hit the ground. No matter what. Even if it’s behind the ball. THEN you can learn to be more precise with where you “land your airplane.”
How you release the club through impact much match your body pivot. Here’s how goes.
If you are fighting a closed club face, putting just enough “fan it open” may help you a lot.
Understanding how to match your club face and wrist action with the way your body moves is a HUGE deal in creating predictable ball flight. Here’s how they work together.
The Level Drill will help you learn the feel of an on-plane, NOT over the top, golf swing. You’ll learn to feel how you create both the backswing and downswing with one easy drill.

Folks, if you can move the light saber through this type of range of motion, then changing your club path is no different!
