Warns: 0/3

PostPosted: Tue 19:24, 20 Apr 2010 Back to top

Hello -

Any advice for someone who loses their tush line on the downswing? My right hip (RH golfer) moves inward toward the golf ball on the way down causing my right foot to lift up on its toes while losing my posture. My club also gets "stuck" behind me and high hooks, pushes, shanks and even fat shots result.

I've tried everything from starting with my weight on my toes at address, to standing closer to the ball, to swinging with my tush against a chair. Nothing seems to work.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the Forum.

Golfers who suffer against losing the tush line problem lack the correct pelvis area CoG shift. People are bipedals, thus, the hips (with 2 independent joints) are not just rotating having constantly the axis of rotation in the middle.
The motion is always a combination of linear and rotary elements - the linear one is necessary to shift the CoG onto the vertical axis coming practically through the lead hip joint while the rotary one happens because golfers unwind the torques they built during the backswing phase.
Think - eccentric wheel. Generally, the lead hip downswing motion contains mainly the rotational element while the motion of the rear hip contains mainly the linear one to the South-West (assuming a golfer faces North at address).
The visualization of the biokinetically correct hips area motion can be found here:

How to automatize the correct pelvis area motion without losing the tush line ?
One needs to be sure that the rear hip joint performs the linear element during transition/early downswing. It is difficult to do if the rear hip does not go deep enough up&back in the backswing (the McLean's X-Factor theory made a lot of victims, unfortunately). Increasing the diagonality of the stance will vividly help here.
Secondly, there must be the so-called sequentiality of events from the ground up - the rear leg/femur should react to the overtorques the way it automatically forces the hip joint move in the proper (S-W) direction. The rear side presets used in the process of building the firm rear side sequentially from the ground up should do the job.
Please also refer to the Hogan's YouTube vids.
