There are two key positions in the golf swing that you may have never been aware of, what I call the Two Triangles. These triangles help to regulate the geometry and plane of your golf swing and are key indicators as to the proper functioning of your swing.
At top of the back swing the first triangle is formed between the lead arm and rear elbow, noticed that the arms are at approximately 90 degree angles to each other. This position of the arms relative to each other not only gives the swing an appealing geometric shape but also provides two other functions. First, it creates strong functional support between the arms and the club shaft, and second it provides a strong foundational support for the down swing plane as the geometry needs no manipulation to arrive properly into the impact area.
Entering the impact area, notice that the triangle appears inverted as the club shaft approaches the last down swing parallel. This image demonstrates how a proper pivot transports the Power Triangle into the ball with speed and precision. With the humerus attached to the body the triangle holds its shape to guide the club along the correct swing plane helping to insure sweet spot impact.
Practice triangulating your swing in the mirror for five minutes a day, it’s the easy way to build the correct geometry in your golf swing.
