Appropriate hip rotation in the backswing will help store power, maintain balance and improve your swing sequence.

Part 1

  1. Place the grip of a mid iron directly on your trail thigh with the sole golf club sitting flat on the floor.
  2. Take the club away with arms followed by torso. We don’t want to see the hips turn early!!

Part 2

  1. Once the arms reach a position parallel with the floor, allow the trail pocket or your trousers to start rotating around and behind you. The club will start to fall.


  1. Keep rotating your hips until you complete your backswing. The club will be at rest on the floor.


If you find this exercise difficult, it may be a physical limitation that inhibits your form during this movement.

To analyse your swing in more detail book a TPI screening assessment with one of our golf Professionals.
