Today we’re bringing in former long-time PGA Tour member Larry Rinker for some great reminders that we can all use in our daily practice routines.
Take a look at the image at the top and you’ll see a very impressive display of Larry’s player money clips/player badges from his Tour days.
Larry has a very thought-invoking teaching method, breaking players’ swings down into “Upper-Core” swings and “Lower-Core” swings. Everyone falls into one of those categories and some can be a combination of both.
Today, Larry points out four great swing thoughts from the GOAT — Jack Nicklaus.
Larry points out that they are all facets of an “Upper Core” swing.
First — Get the right hip out of the way on the backswing.
Second — Keep you back to the target as long as possible.
Third — The first two will give your arms room to swing.
Fourth — You want to be able to feel the clubhead at the top of your swing, feel the weight of it to start the downswing.
