• Have you set any goals for the season ahead?
• What have you done to improve your game?

This week the video shows you a key swing move to create more distance from the tee. However, it is much more important than that, it forms the foundation for EVERY swing to improve.
I have talked about body action and coil before but I truly believe it is the foundation around which consistent swings are built. This was apparent watching the finals of the recent HowDidiDo Matchplay Finals; you can immediately separate the low handicap golfers by just watching the body action.

With the V1 Golf App on your tablet or smart phone you can video your swing and check your own body action.
From there you can register with the HDiD Academy Swing Analysis facility and purchase an internet lesson. To see how this works click view sample lesson at the Swing Analysis page above. We look forward to seeing your swings and showing you how you can improve.
