This is a topic of great interest to me because I sometimes forget to make a full turn with my shorter clubs. It seems that my arms decide to take over and I have a mental struggle to regain control. The result of this battle generally results in hitting short on approach shots! It is very frustrating and something I will.work on over the winter.
The above picture shows that when focused on turning, I can make it happen. This action shot catches me in motion and everything looks to be in the right position. The results of this shot was 220 yards down the right side of the fairway. My ball flight was straight as an arrow and set our team up for an easy birdie.
Turning under control is a skill I worked on over the years because I appreciate its importance. However, to be able to make a full turn effortlessly, I will have to focus on my flexibility in the offseason. It is something I have let slide and need to rectify.
Making a full turn helps with increased distance, improve contact, and swing tempo. It does take effort and I plan on using my orange whip training aid more in the coming months to improve this skill.
Do you make a full turn when hitting for distance?
