Get Your Golf Swing Started with Momentum

Getting a swing trigger is one of the best ways to start your golf swing on the right path.

Too many amateurs start the golf swing in a static or stagnant position which forces them make compensations in the backswing and downswing. 

Get a trigger and get a repeatable swing!

How to Start the Golf Swing (Correctly)

00:05

hi guys Alex Forte here the artist

00:08

simple golf starting the goals from can

00:11

be a little bit tricky it is for me you

00:13

know I have a problem of snatching away

00:15

too too much sometimes take it on the

00:19

inside taking it too much on the outside

00:20

for some reason it's a part of the golf

00:23

swing that I've always struggled with

00:25

but we can understand what we do in

00:31

everyday life to set momentum up and

00:33

movement for the golf swing and really

00:36

we need a trigger you know you'll see a

00:37

lot of players do a couple of things

00:39

that maybe they have a forward push with

00:42

their hands but you know that seems like

00:44

the big movement but a lot of times not

00:46

only other hands moving forward it's

00:48

actually the legs at the same time so

00:50

that they'll be like a push forward and

00:52

a push back to why'd she initiate that

00:55

movement you know if we were doing

00:57

anything Movement wise that we're trying

01:01

to generate something whether it be a

01:02

you know pitcher throwing a ball doing a

01:05

tennis racket we don't just you know go

01:08

back straightaway usually there's a you

01:10

know we go here and then we leverage so

01:12

we're not talking about swaying but

01:14

we're talking about moving that pressure

01:16

okay so on the legs what we want to

01:20

actually feel is just as we start the

01:22

golf swing what we want to feel like a

01:24

bit of pressure in that front leg and

01:26

then back and it's actually that's the

01:28

trigger you're going to do so it's like

01:30

I'm starting the swing by feeling lip

01:31

squeezing on the inside of the thigh

01:33

here and then I'm starting back and then

01:35

it's moving on to the inside of the

01:38

right leg here it's a it might take a

01:40

little while to get used to but it will

01:42

hopefully give you a better feeling of

01:45

starting the golf swing that isn't as

01:47

much rushing not Russian but rushing the

01:51

the swing especially from the takeaway

01:53

which can make us go too deep and can

01:55

cause a bit of trouble so you know let's

01:58

feel almost light and place that

02:00

movement on the swing here but as we

02:03

start we're just going to go okay so

02:05

there's my target there's my target and

02:07

then I was going to start and swing

02:12

okay that's the move that we want it's

02:16

gonna actually take a lot of thoughts

02:18

away for you of what you're thinking

02:20

about position wise so let's try that

02:23

again

02:24

but let's emphasize it just a little bit

02:27

just for the practice drill reason okay

02:29

so we're going to push forward and then

02:31

push back keep a nice width and a smooth

02:35

goal swing so let's go through it again

02:38

so we're going forward back and then

02:43

swing through got a little bit clean but

02:48

the idea is that I'm initiating my swing

02:50

correctly to give me the width to give

02:53

me the tempo that I want from the very

02:56

beginning so please like and subscribe
