Golf myths to debunk
There are many myths about what you should and shouldn’t do to swing the club well. We highlight a few of our favorites below. The key is operating the core engine of your swing properly. The rest of these things – posture, position at the top, keeping your swing short – are largely irrelevant.
1. Shift weight
Shift weight through swing/post up on your left side. Great players show that the left foot is actually unweighting through impact – many greats have a ‘floating’ left foot.
2. Keep your left heel down on backswing
49 of top 51 all-time winners on PGA Tour lifted their left heel on backswing (Tiger and Curtis Strange)
3. Left arm has to be straight at impact
