Nothing can make for a longer, more frustrating day on the golf course than missing shots both right and left.
Unfortunately, however, that’s a fate that many average and higher-handicap players suffer all too often when they tee it up.
Brian is fighting two-way misses on the course and as SwingFix instructor Ed Oldham shows him in this swing analysis it’s because he’s sliding and lifting in his backswing as opposed to making a good body pivot.
This is a common problem for many golfers because a slide off of the ball feels like a powerful move, but it’s one that create issues on the downswing and into impact.
So watch this video and you might just pick up a few pointers about how you can improve your pivot and in turn improve your overall ball-striking.
