Golf Swing Drill 401a. Transition: Origin of Movement and Weight Shift


So here it is, golf’s “magic move”, the transition.

This is the first of four simple drills that will enable you to quickly learn the most elusive movement in golf – the signature move of a great golf swing, the move that makes a highly skilled golfer’s swing look fluid and effortless.

This is the move that will take your game to the next level.

Once again, apologies to the lefties out there, but for simplicity this article will describe movements for the right-handed golfer.

  • Get stable.
  • Get powerful.
