Mike Malaska on Incorrect Hip Turn (Video)

It's a brand new video from Mike Malaska, just released Thursday!

Mike Malaska worked closely with the late Jim Flick, so he is yet another classic swing teacher -- and I like the way he focuses on what you feel when you swing rather than what it looks like you're doing. You've seen his videos on my blog frequently, especially the ones on the L-to-L drill. (That drill is the Swiss Army knife of drills!)

Anyway, in this new video he explains why what you see in a golf swing can be very misleading...

There is more than one way to get your hips to turn, and actually trying to turn them is probably the most difficult way to get it done. Malaska is just pushing his hips back, one at a time, but that creates his hip turn. It's a much simpler motion, don't you think?

And since we're trying to describe a feel here, let me give you one more way to feel this movement. Try copying Arnold Palmer -- he just straightened his trail leg during his backswing and pushed up with his lead leg during his downswing.

Remember: There's more than one way to create rotation in your swing. Learn the way that feels most simple to you, because that's the one you'll be most consistent with.
