Hit against a firm left side. What does this mean?

Hitting against a firm left side is mentioned over and over as one of the elements of a good golf swing. But, what does this actually mean? I could fill this post with a lot of technical jargon, but I do not feel that this is necessary. Hitting against a firm left side simply means that the left leg must act as a post to brace the golf shot.

Watch any golf tournament and you will see that every pro ends up in the same position when making a full swing. If every pro does it, don’t you think that you should too?

Study the picture, and hit 25 shots a day. Do nothing else but think about finishing in a position like the picture below, and hold your finish for a count of three.

So head to the backyard, practice with your RopeIt, emulate the finish in the picture, and you will be well on your way to being a better ball striker.

If you would like a more detailed explanation check out the following web sites:

Golf is all about being in the correct positions at the proper time. I started with the finish, because to get to this position you had to do a lot of things right. Please stay tuned for future posts on proper positions to be in and at what time.

As always, keep it in the short grass.
