Fundamental Principles. (Changed
On this page I have listed
the "Basic Fundamental Principles" in
order of priority.
I will be highlighting these
items throughout the lessons and therefore all of this information
will be continually repeated, therefore it is advisable to
digest this information before you begin the lessons.
On another page I have listed the "Basic
One of the most fundemental principle that
you must be aware of is that the hips must not be allowed
to sway away from the original address position at any point
in the golf swing.
The hips must only rotate whilst held over
the centre of your stance, they must not be allowed to sway.
Eyes focused on the ball"
It is absolutely vital that you focus on
a point where the back edge of the golf ball and the ground
meets and hold this focus until the club head make contact
with the ball, but importantly, you must continue to look
at the back edge of the golf ball for a milli-second after
the ball has been struck so that you actually see the ball
move away from its resting position.
This is relevant be it the tee, the fairway
or the rough.
This is the first basic principles of the
golf swing that you must learn.
If you fail to learn this principle, you will never achieve
a low handicap.
the upper body angles is one of the major keys to playing
very good golf.

left eye is slightly behind the golf ball at the address position
, but importantly, the head must remain in this position as
the club head swings through the contact area.
It is vital that you ensure that the hands
do not go beyond the original address position until the precise
moment the club head makes contact with the ball.
It is absolutely vital that the head is
firmly held in this condition whilst club head moves into
and through the contact area.
The set up is very important.
The heel of the left foot must stay firmly
on the ground throughout the back swing movement and the right
leg must remain slightly bent.
The right leg must be kept in a slightly
flexed but very firm condition throughout the back swing movement.
of the Swing Arc"
It is absolutely vital that you swing
the club head to the bottom of the swing arc.
This is how the body should be at the critical
point of impact.
It is absolutely vital that you adhere
to this principle.
The right arm plays a slightly passive
role throughout the golf swing but is used to boost the velocity
of the golf club at the precise moment the club head strikes
the ball, but careful use of this facility is important.
