Hip and shoulder turn throughout the golf swing has been a debated topic among golf instructors and coaches for a long time. At GOLFTEC, we’ve been able to gather data from thousands of golfers to help us become more knowledgeable about what better players are doing in their turns versus higher handicap golfers. As a former GOLFTEC Coach, I’ve seen how important the hip and shoulder turns are for the swing path, swing speed, and ball striking. As we all know, these elements are pretty crucial to be able to develop a better player.
