Today, I would like to talk to you about how to sequence the body parts in to impact in the correct manner, and that’s scientifically called the ‘Kinematic Sequence’.
Anything where we have to ballistically hit a ball in a certain direction requires the right sequence if you’re going to do it efficiently and powerfully.
Now if we think of a baseball player, when he’s ready to hit the ball, he will step and hit into his left side and then unwind. If you think of a cricketer when he’s bowling, steps, there’s a movement laterally and then there’s rotation.
The same thing applies in the golf swing. What we want to effectively do is move ourselves up to the top of the backswing, and then before any pull-down of the arms, there is a lateral rotation. So there’s the lateral move and then we rotate.
I like to pop a little cane down to show my students that the weight first of all moves in to the left foot, the left hip bumps over the left ankle, and then we can rotate around that lovely posted left-side.
I’m going to show you in this video how to move into that left-side correctly, so you can get the kinematic sequence right and fire those balls much further than you have been. So, get yourself set-up; you go up to the top of your backswing and the feeling before you pull-down with the arms is a lateral move and then we rotate and unwind.
