Golf Tips with Bobby Lopez

Constant updates on new golf tips to improve your golf game! I post any new methods we used to resolve a specific golf swing fault. I'm always searching for a better way to communicate improvements in our student's golf games. As an added bonus we have golf comedy clips from our radio show on ESPN and tips for doing business while on the golf course. Golf is the game of business...start golf networking!

Make Sure You Stay BEHIND The Golf Ball!

I was listening to an interview of one of the batters for the Boston Red Socks.  Forgot his name already but he's leading the league in batting right now.  What was interesting was that he was crediting his success to the fact that he was staying behind the ball.  Hey Lopez......that's baseball!  Same thing partner...guaranteed!

You need to get behind the golf ball.  Get your weight on your back leg at the top of the back swing and then rotate from there.  No stepping into the pitch or driving your weight to your front leg.

Here's the "Swing Secret!" I believe the secret to consistency.

The golf swing is a "single axis rotation."  The body rotates on the base of the spine and the arms should follow both the rotation and "tilt" of the shoulders.  I'm finding tons of videos lately of golf pros being viewed from the back side.  They're catching on to the fact that you can view the base of your spine movement better from a back side view. 

If you can rotate with a minimum of lateral movement you can be more consistent.  Far less fat shots, catching it think AND most of all in my estimation...a better extension of the arms through impact which means NO MORE CHICKEN WING!

Take a look at this video.  Come see me to have your swing video taped form the back side.  I one will see your video without your permission.
