Correct Golf Shoulder Turn

Correct Golf Shoulder Turn

So many golfers seem to purely swing with their arms when taking the golf club back before the downswing, in this article I going to look at the correct golf shoulder turn you should be looking to achieve to make your golf swing more compact and consistent, to make it easier to understand what I mean I have scoured the internet and YouTube to use the videos I found to make it easier for you to grasp and fully understand the importance of a good correct golf shoulder turn.

In this first video the golf professional is talking about getting your spine angle correct and pivoting on that point to stop your shoulders coming over the top and coming into the golf ball too steep, he also uses golf alignment training sticks so you understand what it means, Correct Golf Shoulder Turn - Alignment Golf Training Sticksfor more information on the golf alignment sticks for your own use CLICK HERE to buy if you feel they will help your practice to achieve the perfect shoulder turn. 

You will also see in the video a great drill using a golf club to get that shoulder turn working, this is the type of golf drill you can practice at home which will ingrain the motion and the feeling you want to have when you are making the correct shoulder turn. In fact, Jack Nicklaus also had a trigger when thinking about taking the golf club back on the correct plane, his only thought was to get his ‘right shoulder out of the way’ this all he had to think about was one thought because he ingrained the correct shoulder from many hours of practice. Hope you enjoy the video.

When I first watched this video I was totally amazed at how simple the drill was, positioning the club out in front of you and basically raising the club in front of yourself and turning your shoulder and hips and it will show you exactly where your golf swing should be through all of the stages of the golf swing, I have always said that keeping the golf swing simple will enhance and improve your game of golf, after watching the video a couple of times it will just sink in and you will fully understand the mechanics on how simple a golf swing should be.

    Michael, I love these videos. I don’t know why the swing gets so complicated in (my) mind, but when it’s broken down into a couple of easy, visual views – in two dimensions, one from the front and the other from behind – it simplifies it enormously. The trick now would be to translate this onto the range and then the course. Have you had some success with Zack’s tips? The only thing on my mind now is to get out there – and try the perpendicular set-up.
    Thanks for this.

    Hi Michael,

    Great article. As someone with the worst swing in the world and it’s gotten worse with time. I have trouble coming threw the ball and I am in a hurry and my hands are left behind sometimes or vice versa. Anyway, this product seems like something that may help me fix it once and for all. I know there is no overnight successes without hard work and practice but I’m willing to put the work in to improve my game.

    Cheers, Robert
