Coach Talk: Quick

From John Kostis On March 31, 2021
The essence of golf is hitting a ball with a stick. Sounds like the simplest thing in the world, right? But it only takes a few swings to appreciate how infinitely challenging that simple task can be. As... you play more and start trying to improve your technique, the process can get even more complicated. Part of the problem is that there's so much information on swing mechanics out there - in golf publications, on television, from various instructors and even from your well-meaning playing partners. A lot of this golf-speak can be overly technical. Some of can even be contradictory. But more commonly, swing lingo tends to be vague, poorly understood and poorly explained – which can quickly send you down some dark dead-ends as you struggle to improve.

You have to be very careful when it comes to golf terminology, but fortunately we've found some relief. Titleist staff member John Kostis has seen it all when it comes to questionable golf "wisdom" and to help you cut through the confusion, he's produced a series of tips to help clarify what some of these worn-out terms really mean and how they may, or may not apply to your current swing issues.

In Part 1 of bis four-part series, John talks about the over-used and frequently misunderstood term "Quick". If you've ever heard, "your swing got quick" or its close cousin, "you rushed from the top", then this video will show you what's really going on. Practice the sequencing drill that John demonstrates and you'll be able to erase the word "Quick" from your golf consciousness for good.
