“Weight Shift” is a popular discussion in the world of golf instruction these days. Is it really weight that we’re shifting when we swing? Are we actually shifting pressure? In reality, both happen.
In this video, I’ll attempt to help you understand the following concepts:
- Pressure shift as a response to the swinging of the arms and club. - What the arms actually weigh and what that means for your “weight shift”. - The proper weight shift is subtle, almost invisible, not overt or obvious. - The faster the arms swing, the faster the “weight” shifts in response. - The legs, trunk and core support the swing, as opposed to powering it. - The swing as a process of producing centrifugal force as opposed to an effort to apply leverage.
Please enjoy and let me know if you have questions.
Play your best, -BB
