Sliding rather than properly turning our bodies during our backswing leads to several issues, such as the straightening of our right knee and the disruption in body weight balance that leaves the bulk of our weight placed on our lead foot.
When sliding in our golf swing, the rotation normally taken in our torso under performs to the extent that we’re in a severely imbalanced position at the beginning of our downswing.
Many players take shots on the course or driving range with their golf bag standing to the left of their body.
When taking our golf shot, if we feel our left hip collide with the golf bag to our left, we know that our bodies are sliding during the golf swing.
If swinging correctly, our body will be turning towards the left, striking the golf ball without our hips coming into contact with the golf bag to our left.
During the downswing portion, our body will rotate in the direction of the bag, with out pelvic region pointed towards the bag as we finish the swing.
Our upper body will take the direction of the target, with our chest pointing directly towards the target or slightly to the left of our designated target.
Taking notice of where prominent parts of our body point before, during and after a golf swing can often provide a clear indication as to whether we’re sliding when swinging or properly rotating our body.
There are a few common causes that may be disrupting the form a golfer takes during their swing, most of which can be mended with focus and practice drills that promote proper swing rotation.
Though not an overwhelming problem for most, nearly 40% of all golfers will slide during a golf swing rather than rotating their bodies correctly.
Many golfers are unable to rotate their bodies correctly because of an immobility in their thoracic spine movement or their hips ability to rotate properly during a golf swing.
Another common cause of sliding in during our swing manifests in a golfer’s in ability to evenly balance their body weight during play.
The final common reason that golfers slide during golf swing comes from an inability to move the upper and lower body separate, causing our entire body to move as one unit during the entire golf swing.
Such an issue with our body movement will ultimately destroy our swing balance, as our whole body moves simultaneously in similar fashion rather than the movement of separate parts during the kinematic process.
