As you reach your backswings upper limit, the arms, shoulders and hips slow to a halt. To initiate the downswing , imagine stomping lightly on a bug with the left heel. This triggers the left hip to rotate, followed by the torso, shoulders and, finally, the arms. As you can see, the downswing flows from the ground up.
Just remember that you can’t stay in a squatted position. If you do, the club will crash into the ground behind the ball. To improve your downswing , feel like you squat and then push upward. The front leg has to straighten.
Once the slight pause at the top has been completed, it’s time to start the downswing . The first element that starts this sequence on the way down is the hips. If you’re too quick on the way down, usually it’s the upper body that starts first which makes it nearly impossible to rotate your hips fast enough.
The transition from backswing to downswing is crucial to generating power and accuracy. The key is to start the downswing with the lower body . In the best swings the lower body starts forward while the upper body is still turning back.
