The first move down golf swing technique is critical to setting your golf swing power in the correct motion and sequence to maximize your distance and solid ball/clubface contact. If this move down to the ball in your golf swing is not in the proper sequence you can kiss a good shot good-bye! This first move will have a different feeling for almost any golfer. Depending on your swing technique, you may need to adjust to get it right.
Assuming you got to the top of the backswing in the proper position, you are now ready to make the first move down to create a proper sequence of motion in your golf swing. I might add if you are an out of shape golfer, this might be completely impossible, at which point you must address your physical limitations to be able to perform this movement.
The first move for many golfers is a bump of the lead hip, just slightly laterally to shift your weight distribution towards the target. If you are a lateral slider of the golf swing like I was, you will want your first move down to feel like a dropping of the hands first, then a strong rotation into the ball.
I personally found when I tried to bump or move slightly laterally, it turned into a bigger slide which created a slice and sometimes the brutal shank. I took lessons with several teaching pros who could not diagnose this issue, and on my own I saw a video of my swing and saw the lateral slide.
The minute I changed my swing thought for the first move down to a dropping of the arms and a powerful rotation into the ball it changed EVERYTHING! No golf pro needed!
If you find you cannot accomplish this initial first move down golf swing technique, I strongly urge you to get your BODY evaluated for any limitations that might be keeping you from achieving it.
