Coach Talk: Stay Still

From John Kostis On March 31, 2021
In Part 2 of his four-part series on golf swing terminology, Titleist staff member John Kostis talks about another golf-speak term that is used far too freely – "Stay Still". As John details in this video,... the cure for poor motion is not no motion. The cure is efficient motion and in most cases that comes from freeing yourself up. By flaring your trail foot open a bit and rotating your head slightly away from the target, you'll make it far easier to make a full turn in the backswing (rotating your thoracic spine). This rotational coil is how great golfers swing with such great tempo and create the illusion of effortless power.

So the next time you practice, use John's setup adjustments, think "stay centered" instead of "stay still" and swing away freely.
