Improve your pivot

I am going to show you an exercise that will help you work on back swing body pivot and help you learn what a correct pivot feels like.Standing in front of a mirror (where possible), I would like you to pick up an object and hold it in your right hand, try using a head cover or a tin of polish.

Now get set into your golf posture, and whilst keeping your left arm in its starting position, swing your right arm and shoulder up to the top of your backswing. Watch yourself in the mirror whilst performing this exercise and you should see that your head has not moved laterally as your spine angle has remained the same and has not swayed to the right. When you look at this position from side on, you will see that your body’s forward bend has remained the same without any lifting and this is once again due to the correct pivoting of your body around your spine.

Repeat this exercise 10 times with the right arm, followed by 10 times with the left. Following this, use both hands, and after a bit of practice you should start to feel the pivot become much easier. This is an exercise that you should practice every day, it only takes 5 minutes and will make a real difference to your game.
