For consistency in your ball-striking, it’s all about maintaining stability in the lower body and on engaging your body ‘core’ to generate momentum and speed. 

Mr.MATTHEW REA – LEADBETTER ACADEMY with his experiences in coaching a lot of golfers in all the world would like to share his tips for our golfers to maintaining stability and engage body core.
” I continually work on my body to dominate the swing, and to achieve that I work on what is termed a ‘body-release’, in that I rely on the rotation of my body to gradually increase speed and square up the clubface for impact, this helps to minimize the workings of the hands. This motion applies all the way through the bag, from the putter to the driver, and will control the shape and structure of the swing. 

We are all prone to occasionally losing our timing and feel for our swing, and whenever I sense that is happening I go back to these basics.

 Good structure at setup, the arms feel ‘connected’ to the torso 

My feeling in the move-away is that my body ‘core’ initiates the first move, the arms hands and club move simultaneously. The key at this stage is to ensure the ‘core’ pulls the leading hip downwards and the leading knee is pointing behind the ball. It is important to note, the leading knee controls the tilt in the hip and shoulder plane, and should be established in the move-away.

 At this stage, my lead shoulder has worked under my chin, as the result, the wrists remain passive; this is a swing that is controlled by the bigger muscles.

From the top, the momentum of the swing is reversed, known as the ‘transition’ phase, as the leading knee works towards the target. The key is that you unwind from the ground up.

As my leading side clears, the arms fall into a good hitting position, as the rotation of the torso squares the clubface on the back of the ball.
