So the older you get – or the less flexible you are – maybe you can’t quite rotate your body as much either on the way back or on the way through. Are there some mechanical things you could do to increase the rotation relative to where you are? Absolutely. But are you as a 75 year old guy who works out once a week going to rotate like a 25 year old kid who works out every day and has a chiropractor and a trainer with them all the time on the PGA tour? Probably not.
If you just want to play the best you can with what you have, here’s what I would do. Number one is I wouldn’t focus as much on trying to get the rotation in the forward swing. I would focus on getting the rotation during the back swing.
There are some things I can do to pre-set more rotation in the backswing. The first is stance. I would want to use the closed stance line where your right foot is a little bit farther back because I want to focus on at least getting a full turn on the way back. Second is foot flare. If I want more turn going back, I want to have the foot turned – or flared – out because that will help me turn the most. Third I want to have the ball position more back than normal.
Part number two of this now is going to be how the club and swing direction work. With the two stations I demonstrate in this video, I’m going to preset everything we do based on trying to get the club working in a draw pattern. If we’re going to give up some of the body rotation in the follow through, we’re going to preset a swing direction that works more from the inside. It’s going to exit more to the right, going to be a little bit higher than normal and maybe even have a little bit more arm rotation than normal. All of that is to maximize what you guys have.
You must maximize turn going back and you must maximize extension on the way through. We want to make your swing direction more inside out. The slower your club head speed, the more your swing direction should be inside out to maximize getting the ball up in the air high enough so you can hit it far enough to effectively play the course and have fun.
