As we recently discussed, you might be making solid contact but STILL slicing the ball. So what is a key factor contributing to this dilemma? Your downswing sequence plays a big role.

Downswing Sequence at GolfTECThe differences between professional and amateur golfers’ typical downswing are significant. The best players in the world start their downswing from the ground up, driving their knees, hips, chest, arms and club through the ball in that order.
