In this tip, I explain where the shoulders should be by the time the club is making contact with the golf ball. In most people that I teach, their shoulders are square or even closed to the golf ball. But the majority of tour payers are in an open position, this is because they are firing their body, not hitting with their arms. Since your arms can move so much faster then your body it is impossible for your body to catch up if your arms go first.
This is why it is so critical for your body to start the downswing. If not then your arms will hit the ball and your shoulders will end up square or closed to the ball. Sometimes people try to work on stretching the arms out and not realize that this has to be combined with the shoulders open to the ball at contact. Try this the next time you gol out and practice and you will see the improvement in contact.
