Henry Fall here, representing the Milo Lines Golf Academy, with an essential tip to transform your swing dynamics. Today, let's talk about the magic of the trail arm and its width, a game-changer if you're seeking a more shallow motion and a wider arc through impact.
Many of you might be struggling with a steep and slicing swing, leading to inconsistent shots. The solution lies in maintaining width with your right arm, your trail arm. This approach counters steepness, facilitates a shallow angle of attack, and fosters a pivot-driven motion.
Visualize the right arm staying wide as you grip the club midway. This simple exercise showcases the impact of width on your swing's plane. By extending your arm's width without locking it, and adding a touch of wrist hinge, you transform your swing's motion from narrow to a beautifully shallow arc.
To practice, grip the club halfway, focus on maintaining that width, and make a smooth turn. Feel the difference in width, then proceed to hit a shot. The result? A controlled, wider right arm motion that promotes a more consistent and powerful swing. Incorporate this tip into your practice routine and watch your swing game flourish!
