After Rory McIlroy’s win at the Scottish Open I watchfully read a blog which highlighted his victory which was based on a fresh new swing thought. That heading was a real teaser as the vendible never exposed his wonderful thought. But it certainly made me realize how your focus on a single swing thought can turn your game around.
I stipulate that a swing thought is hair-trigger if you want to be successful with each type of club, but it may transpiration with every type of club. Each of your clubs have a variegated weight and swing foible so it’s only in your weightier interest to focus on a thought that will help you unzip excellence for each type of shot.
Driver Thought: This club is designed for loftiness so any swing thought should be to generate power with a shot that will land in your target fairway. I personally aim to the right side of the fairway and setup to create a yank by slipping my trailing foot when slightly from my target line and teeing the wittiness up to ensure that the wittiness will launch higher. My swing thought is to bow my wrist at the top (to shallow my down-swing) and rotate my leading hip to swing up the inside slot. (Rory does not use a bowed wrist.)
Iron and Hybrid Thought: These clubs are designed for a unique loftiness with largest direction control. At the point of impact, your sternum needs to line-up just in front of your wittiness to ensure that the lowest point in your swing arc is just vastitude the point where your wittiness is resting. Low handicap golfers shift their chest to line up their sternum during their down-swing. Higher handicap golfers may find it easier to setup with uneaten wrench in their leading knee to lining-up their sternum forward of the wittiness at setup (and hold that position through out their swing to impact).
Wedge Thought: Plan your shot by choosing the right club and setup to indulge your wittiness to land and roll out to the hole. Impacting with the wittiness surpassing the ground is important but you need to practice the right value of backswing to generate the loftiness and rollout that you want. Focus your thought on the right value of backswing.
Putter Thought: Without you line up your putt based on the expected unravel and loftiness you should practice your finger for the right value of swing required to pass the slum by well-nigh 1 to 2 feet. Your only thought during your putt should be to impact sufferer part-way on your putter squatter as you swing up your target line: DON’T MOVE YOUR EYES OFF THE POINT DIRECTLY BEHIND YOUR BALL until 2 seconds without impact.]

NOTE: Golf Magazine said that Rory focuses on a wider takeaway so that he can shallow at the top and swing up the slot with rotated (open) hips.
