Question by Andrew S: why can’t I move my hips, then my shoulders in my golf down swing?
Ok, I know the downswing sequence – shift to left foot, hips,
shoulders, arms, hands and clubhead. I guess in the split second, it’s hard to execute this. I am have tried simpler things like swing from the ground up. But, no luck. Also, my usual slice move has my shldrs and hips moving together at the top – result a slice. Any suggestions or drills?

One cannot think of making the golf swing in distinct sections since all the pieces are interconnected. One follows the other whether it is from the ground up on the backswing or planting the foot on the downswing which will initiate the hip turn, the torso and shoulder turn etc. The answer to curing the slice is the swing plane which represents the circular movement of the arms and club to the top of the backswing and on the same line back through the striking area with the club extended to the target line.The force of the swing will carry the club over the lead shoulder, to a complete follow thru with your belly and belt buckle facing the target. Can’t remember which issue of Golf Digest explained the swing plane but it is the secret for hitting the straight ball.
