No two golfers are created the same. One may have a hitch in their swing that works great for them, while the other may be effective by following all the “rules” of a perfect swing. The key is simply finding what works best for you and maximizing that to your advantage.
That’s the basis of the discussion between GOLF Top 100 Teachers Mike Adams and Terry Rowles, who teamed up to present at last fall’s GOLF Top 100 Teacher Retreat.
As the video above shows, Adams and Rowles focus on the importance of using dynamic motion in the golf swing. This means allowing a player to use their natural athletic ability — as well as any physical restrictions — to achieve success on the golf course.
Adams described the thought very bluntly, saying, “we have preferences. And we put our will on that student and we make them swing that way because this doesn’t fit ‘our eye’, so we make it fit our eye by moving them to look better.
“In our effort to make them look better, they hit it worse.”
The two provide examples of some of the top golfers in the world, showing the likes of Rory McIlroy and others, and how, on camera, their swings look ideal. Unfortunately, the results were inconsistent.
So go ahead and give the entire video a look to learn more about how dynamic motion can help improve your overall play. The insight from both Adams and Rowles is helpful for each player to remember a simple concept about the golf swing: That one size does not always fit all.
