Charles Howell:  Top Position

Sometimes our golf facility will play host to major touring professionals, like Charles, who want to use our patented motion analysis system to check and maintain certain positions in the swing.  Here I am showing you the motion sensors for his top position for Mr. Howells swing.  The key to a good swing plane as well as more distance is a full shoulder turn (somewhere between 80-90).  Here you can see Charles reaching 99 degrees of turn but maintains good separation with the hips (x-factor).

Most amateurs can reach 99 degrees of turn at the top with the shoulders but their hips will be at 70.   This gives them an x-factor of only 25 where charles has 50!  This is where flexibility can come into play.  If you have any questions about the picture above please post away, as these are meant to be interactive.   I will post new swings all the time, mixing it up between elite players and my average student.
