How Your Body Affects Your Golf Swing Faults

IF YOU BROKE YOUR LEFT LEG AND YOUR LEFT LEG STRAIGHTENED TOO EARLY IN THE DOWNSWING, WOULD I MAKE SENSE TO KEEP WORKING ON SWING MECHANICS TO CURE YOUR "FAULT"?

Day after Day, Year after Year, I work with and see golfers work only on their Swing Faults; and not the tightness in different areas of their body that are causing them. By now, most golfers  have seen their swings on Video and know what their ‘Fault’ is; but don’t know HOW to fix it? 

For example, if a person has an extremely tight and ‘droopy’ Right Shoulder, their fault is often times a coming out over the top with their trailing shoulder.  Then, they try all sorts of remedies for this ‘Fault’.

However, It’s been my practice to:

A).  Explain to the golfer how the muscle imbalances  in the shoulder is the SOURCE of the problem, and then

B). Put them on a Flexibility program that not only addresses the shoulder tightness, but also helps balance the entire body; and then watch the ‘FAULT’ disappear.

This is why I created the FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS TO INFLEXIBLE SWING FAULTS Video, which addresses 8 of Golf’s most common Swing Faults and gives the Flexible Solutions to each one.

SIMPLE UPPER BODY STRETCHES FOR A BETTER SHOULDER TURN at TPI

(But remember to stretch the Lower Body FIRST)

THE #1 QUESTION’‘  I get asked all the time – especially by senior golfers is: “Roger I’m in my 60’s (or seventies),  ‘Roger, am  I too old to get my flexibility back?”  My answer (thousands of times) is ‘Absolutely Not ! Everybody can improve the range of motion in their bodies IF they stretch the right muscles the Right way!”  Not only can Seniors Slow Down and Retard the aging process by Flexibility Protocols, but they can improve their Flexibility to the point where they’re more flexible than they were when they were kids!  Again, If they stretch the right muscles the right way!

In today’s video, I’m demonstrating a few simple stretches with Dr. Greg Rose and Dave Phillips of TPI that will improve your Shoulder Turn;

HOWEVER, MAKE SURE THAT YOU STRETCH YOUR LOWER BODY MUSCLE CHAINS FIRST!

My ‘SECRETS TO GOLF SWING FLEXIBILITY’ Videos WILL DEFINITELY HELP YOUR FLEXIBILITY ON THE COURSE – AND IN YOUR LIFE!

Also, consider my Posture System Program to not only improve flexibility but posture.
