It's all in the hips
Updated: Apr 17
As people, we are designed to do far more than just stand and sit. We are capable of twisting, rotating, bending, standing, jumping, running and lots more too! In golf, it's no different, in fact a key part of the swing is the ability to rotate, this involves the spine, hips and shoulders, but in this article I'm going to show you how to get more out of your hips. The hips and the shoulders share most in common out of all the joints in the body, as they are both 'ball and socket' joints. This means the upper leg bone (femur) fits into the hip socket (acetabulum) and is able to move in a very large range of motion. When a good range of motion in the hips is utilised, more rotation becomes available during the golf swing which often means your golf swing improves and your driving distance is increased. Check out the video below for some simple tips on how to get the most out of your golf swing.
