What’s the secret to making a golf swing look effortless? Whether you’re 30 or 70, a single-digit or a beginner, Fred Couples’ advice will help everyone.
If I can tell you a couple of key points,
is, for me, I make sure that I make
a full shoulder turn.
I think every good player, every good
amateur wants to do that.
And once I get the shoulder turn back,
I don’t think about the change
in direction, it just happens.
But once I start coming, my hips will come this way,
but my club does not follow my hips.
Therefore, getting no power.
So what I try and do is get the club up here,
I clear my hips but I release the club going down the line.
But when I say release, I don’t hold on this way,
otherwise you’re gonna hit it a mile to the right.
So if you can learn to clear your hips
a little bit, and let the club go down the line
and release it towards the ball.
Not back here, where you’re doing this.
So, there’s a point where I think about,
once I make contact, then I feel
like I’m releasing the club.
So it’ll be, what I call, past the ball.
So, once again for me, I get the club back,
and once I come down here, I’m clearing.
And my point of release is actually
at the ball, not back here.
You’re holding your angle.
Once I get here, I go at it with pretty much,
it doesn’t look like it, but I go
at it with everything I have.
