Steph believes it is of vital importance to understand this correlation in order to gain awareness of your own swing. STRONG GRIP With this grip position the clubface will be shut or closed during the takeaway and again at the top of the ...

THE RIGHT KNEE SYNDROME

This month our GARY PLAYER SCHOOL FOR CHAMPIONS coach, Steph Spies, shows by means of pictorial illustration the importance of a stable right knee in the golf swing. The angle from behind illustrates that - My right leg maintains its angle at address and through the backswing.

Step towards a better downswing!

The most important awareness you should have regarding your downswing is correct sequencing, which is the key to consistent ball-striking and improved accuracy. Before we examine this, it is important to understand that the upper body takes the club back, but the lower body initiates the downswing and is responsible for returning the club to the impact zone! If you can execute the drill d...

Understanding Weight Transfer

Although you feel you are swinging well, your club is grounding or bottoming out before making contact with the ball. The big muscles of your lower body MUST initiate the forward swing! This will improve your weight transfer and help to increase club-head speed, and therefore distance. A more efficient weight transfer will also encourage a slightly later un-hinging of the wrists, thereby improvi...

Dont keep your head down

 You’re on the range and someone says “Keep your head down!” This is what will happen if you follow this well-meaning but ill-advised advice: At address, your chin will be tucked into your chest, causing your posture to be too crouched. Keeping your head down at impact will block the natural release of the club-head and your weight transfer, resulting in inconsistency. ...

Fixing poor contact

The next time you hit balls, place a pile of grass one club-head in front of the ball on the practice mat, then on each swing try to hit the ball and then the grass. Why it works… When you practice off mats, you're hitting off a very cushy lie, which gives you a wide margin for error - even if you hit slightly behind the ball, you still get good distance and feel, which tricks you int...
