Let’s Break It Down – The Purpose Of The Swing

I’ve been doing more work on the 3 Pillars of a proper swing, which are simply, the Swing Point, the Swing Arc and the Hands.

You can distill the swing down to those three pillars (if you don’t want to, then don’t, but my point is that you can), because of the simple purpose of the golf swing.

The thing about having the extended release is that you’re not turning – I’ve said before, there is “no turn in the swing,” only the pivot, whereas if you’re actually trying to time a ¬†“turn” through impact, you’re just going to make things much more difficult than they have to be.
