Throw to swing | By Jamie Coughlin

Ever been to Topgolf and seen people hitting nice shots and wondered why you can’t do the same? One of the biggest mistakes I see at Topgolf is a player trying to lift the ball up in the air.

The intention to make something go in the air makes the body hang back. If you feel yourself leaning back then you most likely struggle to hit clean golf shots.


Next time you go to Topgolf think of the process of throwing a ball.
The natural movement from the back foot to the front foot allows the correct sequencing to play better golf shots.

Instead of trying to get the ball up in the air, change your intention to throwing and your body will automatically know what to do. The result will be a golf swing that follows the same body sequence where the lower body initiates the movement. The club can then swing through and into the finish.

If you want to learn golf in a fun and relaxed environment then book in for a lesson at Topgolf Dubai.
