How to make a perfect golf swing weight transfer

Weight Management

As I mentioned, 75 percent of the body weight is transferred to
the  back foot during the back swing. Through the downswing and finish,  the weight
transfers from the back foot to the front foot.

Too often, amateurs force this shift in weight by sliding and  swaying from side to
side during the back swing and downswing. This  is not necessary! With correct
footwork, you should automatically  make the correct amount of weight shift.
To get a feel for using your legs and correctly transferring your  weight during your
swing, try the following drills.

Brace Drill

Practice with your right leg butting against an object to get a  solid
feel for bracing your right side. In this case, we’re using a  bench. As you simulate
your back swing, you should feel your knee  pressing firmly against the bench,
creating torque and building energy.
If your right knee isn’t touching the bench during the back swing,  it means you’re
not shifting your weight correctly to the right  side. Keep making practice swings
until you feel consistent  pressure between your knee and the bench.

Drop Down, Choke Down

When you need to keep the ball low, use the Drop and Choke
technique. Pros can make setup and swing adjustments as conditions  change because
they have the luxury of practice.
For most golfers, the best adjustments are the least adjustments,  which is why the
Drop and Choke technique works so well.

Eliminate Topping & Skying Shots with a proper swing weight transfer

The tee shot is the key to good golf. But two common mis-hits can  ruin your chances
for a good score. One is the skied shot, which is  caused by a steep downswing.

Position the ball forward in your  stance, just inside your left heel. Your right
elbow should be  relaxed and tucked close to your side. Your right shoulder will be
lower than the left and your weight slightly on your right side.  Start the club back
low, slow and slightly to the inside.

Now let  the club swing around as you turn.
Golfers often lift the club up  vertically, causing that steep downswing.

Finally, as
you swing  down, keep your right elbow close to your side and sweep the ball  upward
off the tee. Another frightful shot is the topped shot that  does not get airborne.

This is usually caused by a poor transfer of  your weight.

On your backswing, your
weight should shift gradually  to the right. On the downswing, it must shift back to
the left.  Your goal should be a balanced finish with your weight on the left  side
using your right tip toe as a balance point. Try these  pointers, and next time
you’ll find yourself in better position off  the tee. Isn’t golf grand?
