What Is the Magic Move in a Golf Swing?
The Magic Move is the first move to initiate all great ball-striking. It's the first move you make after the backswing. All great shots of golf are made before the squat takes place. The downswing should be natural and a natural response to the coil of your swing. It shouldn't be rushed or done in a hurry to hit the ball. In his book “A Swing For Life”, Nick Faldo stated that even the best swing mechanics and pre-shot routines can't overcome a swing that is too fast from the top. It was mistakenly identified as the legitimate Magic Move. This was because the squat was the move that followed the true Magic Move. This is the deliberate change in direction from the top.
You will soon feel the ball fly off your club face when you can coil and uncoil naturally. This is what golf instructors refer to as “effortless power” and is a staple for PGA Tour players. You can let the club do the work and stop trying to squat at high speeds. You will find that you can stop squatting, and instead build speed slowly from the top. This will allow you to replace a weak slap at your ball with a smooth release. Now that you no longer have to do a squat motion on your downswing you can move fluidly and athletically. You will feel better and enjoy playing golf more. You will improve your ability to strike the ball with your favorite club by practicing natural pendulum motions.
First, when you move your hips laterally to the left from top of the swing's top, the weight is carried along by the hips (mostly on the right leg).
Second, because your hips are tightly wound at the top, any movement of your hips will also affect your shoulders.
This turns your right shoulder up and towards the ball. Therefore, it is important to bring the club from the outside in when you are bringing the club down.
The hips will turn if moved laterally. However, they are more likely to stay in the same place if they are simply turned. This can be proved by standing straight up and moving your hips as far as you want.
The hips at the top of the swing are slightly turned to the right (maybe 45 degrees). As you move them laterally, they will soon turn to the left.
This is not something you need to be concerned about. You just need to make sure your hips are moving laterally and not trying to turn them.
Imagine what it would look like if your arm was at the end of its backward motion and you tried to throw a football. It is impossible. It would be impossible. This is exactly what happens when a golfer doesn't take the time to allow the laws of inertia to redirect their physical energy in the pendulum motion. Newtonian laws don't take into account birdies or bogeys and they will not change just because we want one or the other. Any kind of throwing motion or swinging motion can achieve power and accuracy only if it is natural to turn away from the target and then back towards it.
