Make no mistake, the real speed of a proper golf swing is generated by a making a good hip turn more than anything else. By correctly rotating or “clearing” your hips you allow your upper body to deliver the club to the ball with speed, consistency, and power.

We’ll tell you how to set the stage for a good turn, how to let your hips lead the way through the downswing, and why it’s so important to commit to the turn with confidence.
