Everyone wants to swing like a PGA Tour player — but the plain truth is — most cannot.
Today PGA Tour veteran member Larry Rinker goes deep into how Tour players clear their hips at impact. As Larry points out in today’s lesson, Tour players rotate their hips 40 to 45-degrees.
You will see Adam Scott’s swing, David Tom’s swing and the swing of a very young Rory McIlroy.
Larry has identified three types of swings — upper core, mid-core and lower core. Larry tells us that two-thirds of all golfers are upper core players and the truth is that upper core players DO NOT rotate their hips in that 40-45-degree range.
If someone tells you that you need to clear your hips at impact — don’t listen. It’s not going to help you hit it farther or straighter. In the same theme, do not try to rotate your hips faster through the ball. Won’t work.
And it’s fine not to have those speedy hips like Rory’s.
This is a real eye-opener from Larry.
So sit back and understand why most can’t swing like a Tour player.
