You can make the golf swing so much easier by using your hips correctly in the downswing. All great golfers have great lower body action and you can to by following these drills.

In the downswing the hips have 3 main functions, so shift your weight, help you rotate and produce power, missing any of those elements can make your swing less accurate and less efficient.

In this video I share with you 3 drills that can have you feeling like the golf swing is so much easier than in used to be.

Wow that last drill really worked ! Feels like the feet pushing in opposite forces cause the hips to twist. Great lesson !

Zebra Zport says:

The hips only turn back to frontal(naturally position) by impact…….Not around the danger corner were slice and cut lives.
It's……lateral shove……NOT rotation

Zebra Zport says:

You all are confusing students and golfers! You are in fact promoting TWISTING!……the hips. The term Rotation is out of context!
And TWISTING action pull the body out of line!
The hips is shoved lateral towards target…….NOT TWISTED ACROSS (schew) target line.
Learn some body dynamics bru. Hips…connect to torax… connect to shoulders…..!…….arms…….hands!
LATERAL SHIFT(SHOVE) is the name of the game!

great Video I agree, I just think the last movement while pulling the alignment stick out of the ground could have been shown in a slomo replay, it was quite a fast move.

MrEric0822 says:

Too. Technical. Surely there is a better way to teach this important concept.

Joey Gallo Sympathizer says:

This guy and Rick Shiels have helped me go from shooting high 90s to low 100s, to hitting mid 80s in about 2 months. Took a long break from playing golf, and now getting back into it. Love you guys.

nycabi life is great says:

OK…… UR a miracle worker now ! LOL ! Hopefully it stops raining here in the San Francisco Bay Area today so I can take your encouragement about my hip turn 2 the range! LOL! Thanks 4 your help !

Ray says:

Great lesson Chris, I watched your right hip very carefully and it sort of moves on it's own little swing path. I've never thought too much about my hips, they just went along for the ride with my shoulder turn, but moving the right hip on it's own little swing path, moving down, around, and up makes it much easier to get back to the ball. I don't have to manipulate my posture or stretch my arms out to the ball in the downswing.
Thank you.

Bill 8210 says:

I never fully appreciated how the trail hip is supposed to rotate UP and then, after the hips rotate DOWN, the lead hip rotates UP, all in one smooth, continuous motion — at least, that's how I now see it. Mentally I had mistakenly broken my swing up into too many discrete pieces, and and as a result my hips weren't moving properly, but now they are. Thank you!!!
