Attack Plan

Posted on: June 1st, 2010 by Jeff Ritter 1 Comment

My number one goal with every golfer I work with is to build a swing that is both powerful and athletic! As it relates to “posture,” we have been taught that it’s imperative to “maintain” our address forward tilt throughout the swing. The reality is, the truly skilled player is one who is “attacking” the ball into the hit!

Imagine trying to throw a punch while keeping your spine angle constant or passive. It would be impossible to deliver any kind of real force. The same idea applies to your golf swing. As you transition from back swing to downswing, feel your weight pressing into the ground with your left foot as your chest attacks downward towards the turf. This is an action commonly seen in most every player from Lee Trevino to Tiger Woods!

Once you’ve established your attack move, now it’s time to unwind and deliver the hit!¬†Practice your attack mentality by thinking of the sequence: Lean, Turn, Hit! If you can sense how to create power through the proper movements you’ll be well on your way to longer drives, courtesy of a knockout punch!
