Tip of the week: Shape your swing path properly

RSS

When it comes to the golf swing, most golfers are aware that a key ingredient to good ball-striking is having a swing that’s on plane.

What many golfers don’t understand, however, is what constitutes a proper swing shape or path, especially before, at and after impact.



Most understand that an outside-in swing isn’t the proper path, but many believe the goal is to swing the club straight back and straight through or from inside-out.

In truth, however, a swing traveling on the most effective path will work from the inside to square at impact and then back to the inside after impact.

In this video segment, SwingFix instructor Jim Williams explains why that is the ideal path or shape for your swing and shows you a great drill that you can utilize on the range to visualize that motion.
