The perfect golf swing is performed when you use a powerful hip action during the down swing/follow through movement to force a very passive upper unit around the central core of the spine - whilst the upper body angles that were set at the address position are held at all times and whilst the upper body itself is firmly held together as a very compact unit.
Just rotate the hips towards the target area until the hips are completely facing the target area, whilst the upper body unit/arms remain in a totally passive condition thus using the rotating action of the whole body to literally pull the club head into and through the contact area- do it correctly and you will hit the ball absolutely straight -- It is as simple as that.
( The only physical action that I perform during the down swing/follow through is the rotational movement of the hips.
Therefore as the down swing is performed, the arms gradually lag further and further behind the rotational movement of the compact upper body unit thus creating a high torsion effect of muscles between the compact upper body unit and the arms and it is this torsion that is put to good effect to generate club head speed at the point of impact -- but
If you do not try it yourself, you will never know if I am correct.)
However, the upper body angles must be maintained throughout the back swing, the down swing and well into the follow through movement so that the left shoulder moves under the chin at the end of the back swing and then the right shoulder moves under the chin during the follow through movement.
( Most high handicapped golfers allow the body to straighten as soon as, if not just before, the ball is struck.)
The hips play a very important role.
As you perform the back swing movement the hips must slightly resist the rotational movement of the upper body unit whilst also totally resisting any swaying action of the hips.
However, during the down swing movement the hips are fully activated in order to force the compact upper body unit to rotate around the central core of the spine -- therefore the hips play a very active role to such a degree that they totally dominate the down swing/follow through movements.
The speed of the hips thus controlling the rotational movement of the compact upper body unit contributes greatly to the distance that the ball will travel, however it is the controlled tempo of the acceleration of the hips during the down swing/follow through that determines the accuracy of the shot, especially as the club head swings through the contact area, i.e., no sudden lunges at the ball, but a smooth accelerating action through the contact area.
In addition, a further aid to achieve maximum accuracy is that you must ensure that the hips do not sway away from the original address position throughout the back swing and the down swing movement.
But importantly, you must ensure that the head remains slightly behind the ball throughout the down swing / follow through movements.
(The only time the arms are consciously allowed to move independently of the shoulders is when the arms are forced to interact at the precise moment the club head makes contact with the ball.)
Therefore during the down swing, it is vital that the hips initiate the movement thus forcing the compact upper body unit to rotate around the central core of the spine and it is vital that you totally control the rotational movement of the hips/compact upper body unit to such a degree so that the club head makes contact with the ball at the precise moment the hands return to the original address position, therefore you must practice the timing of the action so that you can perform this most efficiently.
But importantly, the hips must continue to rotate towards the target area, whilst the arms interact, thus ensuring that the hands and the club head move towards the target area at the same speed, but importantly, the continual rotational movement of the hip movement forces the whole body to turn to fully face the target area at the same speed the hands are moving towards the target area.
As the down swing /follow through movements is performed, you must:-
1) Maintain the upper body angles.
2) You must watch the back of the ball until the club head strikes the ball.
3) You must also keep the head in the fixed frontal facing position until well after the ball has been struck.
The golf swing that I teach is a simple but effective movement that utilizes basic principles to ensure that the ball goes in the direction you are aiming and these are all covered within my web site.

This is not a "quick fix" course
It has taken me over thirty five years to find the vital keys to playing very good golf and it has been a slow and traumatic experience and regular readers will know that I have changed my description of how the golf swing should be performed a few times over the years in order to find the correct description of the elusive perfect swing, however I feel satisfied that the right combination has been found.
My experience would have been less traumatic if I discovered these vital keys when I first started playing golf, but the good news is that you do not have to wait thirty years, because you can benefit by my experience and play much better golf sooner, rather than later.

As a point of interest, you often hear top golf instructors say that that a golfer should only have one or two swing thoughts
as they prepare to make a golf swing -- in reality this
only applies to a golfer who has already developed a well structured
Therefore if you want to reach the stage of having a well
structured golf swing it is vital that you learn the basic principles
and the basic movements of the golf swing and practice these
