Darren Clarke Golf Swing

Golf Sage - Monday, December 26, 2011


Darren Clarke won the 2011 British Open and has a nearly flawless golf swing.  He makes only these 2 mistakes:
 
1.     At address, Darren’s left arm and the club shaft do not form a straight line down to the ball.  This is because he plays the ball slightly too far forward in his stance, so his hands are positioned behind the ball rather than ahead of the ball.  The address position usually previews the impact position on the downswing, so Darren may not be delivering his maximum power to strike the ball.
2.     During the backswing, Darren’s left knee pops out, away from his body, instead of working toward his right knee.  This affects perfect balance at the top of the backswing, as your weight is likely transferred to the right heel and outside of the right foot instead of where it should be—the inside of the right foot.  Perfect balance is a key factor in the player’s ability to smoothly and quickly start the downswing back to the left side with a hard leg drive, thereby delivering maximum power at impact.
