Pivot Compression Golf Swing: No. 8 – Body Pivot Compression: Backswing

By Wayne | Videos: PCGS lesson series

Body Pivot Compression: Backswing: We have discussed the feel of compression in the feet, and now we go over the body movement that creates that feeling of pressure into the ground. We have seen in almost all the swing analysis videos of the great players that the body lowers in either the backswing or the forward swing, or in many cases both, and here we learn why this is the case and exactly how you can incorporate it into your own swing.

Would it make sense to concentrate more on what the left knee is doing? I currently have a three lower body faults I’m trying to improve: 1) swaying a little off the ball; 2) left knee breaking inside a little too much and 3) right hip not getting deep enough

By concentrating on holding the address position of the left knee more, this seems to help improve all of the above.

It also, means that the right hip has no option but to go back and deeper.

This seems to be working for me but just wondering if this could lead to problems?
