Many golfers believe that flexibility issues stop them turning.Trying to lift the left heel in the backswing often causes sliding and lifting of the posture. Not many modern players lift the left heel.To coil properly and maintain the Shape of the body the lower half needs to turn from the correct area. We have just uploaded a new video where Gary talks about the range of motion on the lower-half and how to turn it properly.
The reason most golfers find the swing so hard to fix is because they just don’t want to go back to square one! Ironically it is the easiest place to fix things and without the correct posture and arm angles at set-up it is impossible to take the club-head and shaft back in the right direction.
” We are all guilty of not spending enough time working on our posture and arm angles!” Gary Edwin

The correct Arm Bias at set-up is crucial in determining the shape of the body and how the arms work during the swing. If your grip looks wrong then your arms are probably wrong! There are a quite a few videos inside the Members Area that go into detail about the correct Arm Bias and how to maintain the angle of both wrists during the swing. Arm Bias is probably the most overlooked concept in the Golf Swing but it has the greatest influence on its initial direction.

Many of Gary’s players have talked about ‘voidness’ or being ‘void’ as a major key to maintaining their swings.

If you tilt or straighten the top half of the body going back the arms tend to go too far behind it. The way the right arm works is a bit of a mystery to a lot of golfers because they have such bad posture and arm angles at set-up. We have just uploaded a new video to the Members Area. Gary explains the correct arm structure and what he means when he say’s “The Arms Pull the Body” into a coil.
