What is the best way to progress in your golf game? Is to understand the common problems you need to encounter. When it comes to spin, it is chest spin, and several issues come up frequently when improving your spin. As you practice chest rotation, look for any signs of error listed below.
Loss of balance due to over-rotation.
There is a real risk of overdoing it when improving your chest turn. You want to do a complete favor to maximize your swing speed through impact, but turning too far can throw your swing off track. Specifically, if you force yourself to turn further than you can comfortably turn, you risk losing your balance. By exceeding the comfortable limits of your flexibility, you are likely to lean to the right at the top of your swing, and it will be almost impossible to recover from there. The best way to avoid this mistake is to be aware of it simply. Watch your balance; if you feel yourself losing control, dial back your chest rotation. Balance is one of the essential fundamentals of your swing, and it's not worth sacrificing your balance to make a bigger turn. Instead, it would help if you strived to make the biggest turn you can within your ability to maintain your balance.
As important as a big turn is, you also need to maintain the rhythm and feel of your swing. As mentioned above, doing a big chest turn can help your rhythm, but you must approach the subject in the right direction. You don't want to swing like a robot, forcing your body to turn backward and finish mechanically. Instead, you want your movements to have a smooth rhythm, turning backward at a good tempo. If your swing is becoming too mechanical, try not to stiffen your arms. Relax the muscles in your shoulders and arms and let the club swing freely while still using your chest to make a big turn. Once you have achieved the correct balance, your swing will feel smooth and powerful.
The potential hook shot.
As you know, countless amateur golfers struggle with chipping. Chipping is a typical flight problem because most golfers fail to make a good turn. Without a good turn off the ball, the club will end up over the ideal swing plane and land in an outward path. When this happens, slicing the ball is almost inevitable. So if you manage to do a big chest turn, you will be safely out of slicing territory - but you may flirt with the hook. If you let your arms fall too far at the top of your swing, you will enter the ball sharply from the inside. This means you will hit the ball from the inside out and create a hooked spin. Sometimes this swing will produce a gentle pull; other times, it will have a nasty hook. To maintain control of the ball flight when using the Big Turn Chest, ensure your arms are in sync with your upper body. As long as your arms don't drop dramatically at the top, you shouldn't have any problems staying out of hook territory.
There is no perfect action in the golf swing. Everything you do in golf is a trade-off, sacrificing something to gain something else. When you do a big turn, you can increase the power of your swing, but you also risk hitting a hook or losing your balance. As you practice, look for any signs of trouble and take steps to correct your mistakes before they become too serious.
