Building blocks: Sequence of pivot
Travis Fulton and Claude Harmon III share with Rex Hoggard another building block of the golf swing: sequence of pivot. Watch Morning Drive every day on Golf Channel.things, Rex, that we see, week in and week out on the PGA tour is we see a lot of players trying to speed their arms up that are playing golf for a living. The best players in the world have so much rotational speed with their body, they are actually trying to get their arms to match the turn, or the rotation of their body. Where so many of our amateur golfers, or people that we teach in our lessons, their arms ar firing first and their body isn't moving nearly as fast as it should be, so it is the opposite. Good players are always trying to have their arms match the good rotational speed of their body, the average golfer's arms are always working too fast and their body is not turning enough. As we saw with Lexie, you could see her
School of Golf: Swing keys from the King
School of Golf's Martin Hall and Sara Brown teach how freshening up your pivot can help you play like Arnold Palmer. Watch School of Golf Tuesdays 8PM ET.Thanks for joining us on Golf Channel Academy. This is Fools Golf. I'm Sara Brown along side of Professor Martin Hall. It's Arnold Palmer invitational week and I know everyone. One wants to learn from the king. Well they do. Such an inspiration for so many. And most certainly famously his hands were put on the club by his father. We know he never changed that. The second thing he never changed was the ability to keep the head still, worked very hard on keeping the head still. Now. Why have I got a can of deodorant. It's not to freshen up your golf swing I might add. It's because it can help you keep your head still. It really can. We need to turn in golf, that's for sure. But if you turn and you fail to do something with your chest. You will not be able to keep your head still. Arnold Palmer did this. Whoever knew it, I don't know. But this is what he did. If you hold a can of deodorant rightyou did beautifully. And the head still was a great key to Arnold Palmer's fantastic contact, steady head. I think Arnold Palmer would be happy with that swing, so. I hope he was. I think he would, I think he would too. I hope he would be. But thank you for joining us on Golf Channel Academy for the best in golf instruction. For more great tips like this, watch School of Golf, Tuesday night at 8 p.m.
Building blocks: Impact and pivot
Travis Fulton and Claude Harmon III share with Rex Hoggard the building blocks of the golf swing: impact and pivot. Watch Morning Drive every day on Golf Channel.about, when you're trying to get the. This golf club into that impact position , your upper body and your lower body have to be in a position to support that. So, what we see a lot of players do, is they come into impact, they have their hips kind of thrust forward. The chest kind of goes backwards, in an effort to try and lift this golf ball into the air. So their hips move forward, so what we want and try to do at impact is think about the golf club, the golf club can't move itself so as your coming into this impact position you want to try and get your body into as good impact position as possible. So at impact you want to try and have your chest in more of a little bit of a square

If your right hip is pushing against the shaft, then either your hips are swaying instead of turning, or you've got a total upper body lean off the ball.

Building blocks: Swing dynamics
Travis Fulton and Claude Harmon III share with Rex Hoggard the final building block of the golf swing: swing dynamics. Watch Morning Drive every day on Golf Channel.in the world are not only at impact but also where their golf club is and where their body is post impact. So we all focus on the back swing and impact but one of the things that I like to work on with my students is where is the golf club and where is your body in that post impact position. And you want to give this golf club which, really, Rex it cannot move itself. You've got to move this golf club . So you want to get your body in as much as a dynamic position as you can to support all of the positions. As Travis said we're trying to get the golf club into. One of the best stories I ever heard from Tiger Woods , was he said he wanted to try to belong to the hitting area. And I think this goes to what you want
