Dana Finkelstein from LPGA Tour and Henry Fall here, diving into the concept of low point and swing arc. Visualize this with a hula hoop – an aid to understand your golf swing motion.
Imagine your swing as a circular motion, like an eclipse, with the club moving up, down, and around this path. When you're at your best, the club feels stable, following a consistent arc. Dana emphasizes a stable path from under the plane, through the arc, maintaining the same path.
Placing a club on the hula hoop highlights stability and prevents unnecessary twist. This setup ensures a steady clubface orientation throughout your swing. Even chipping benefits from this concept, offering a stable and controlled approach.
Consider larger training aids like the plane swing to further explore this idea. Practicing with the hula hoop aids understanding and consistency, helping you master the art of following the swing arc. Improve your game by embracing this visual approach!
