In this quick video lesson, PGA Professional Dr. Gary Wiren teaches you how to make your golf swing less of a lateral motion and more a rotary motion. What’s the difference? Well, one gets your hips way out in front of the hands and gives the club face no chance of catching up at the bottom of the swing. The other ensures proper timing and solid contact because your hips don’t race your hands to the bottom. It’s an easy choice!

To help demonstrate the difference between a rotary and a lateral swing motion, Dr. Gary introduces a couple of foolproof and inexpensive tools. The first acts as a deterrent to wandering hips, and the other encourages a smooth and easy swing. Incorporate drills with these two tools to your training regimen, and see how much of an impact they can have on your game!
