Best downswing motion

Dan Severson

Q: My question involves the motion most typical used to start the downswing for good players. I have read/heard that some players start the downswing with the right knee moving toward the ball, others start with a shift of weight to the left foot, Others start with a hip rotation. What's the "best"?

A: Not an easy one to answer!! There is no one best way. If you tend to hook or hit fat shots probably weight shift to your left foot is a good thought. If you tend to pull balls left of target, right knee at the ball is a good thought. You're just going to have to find out what works best for you.
