My Swing Doesn‘t Change
Two qualities that I’ve tried to build into my game are consistency and simplicity. Nowhere is this more true than in the swing itself. Once I’m settled into my address position, I make no conscious swing adjustments. And I make the same swing for every club in the bag. Whereas many players advocate using a progressively shorter and less forceful swing as the length of the club decreases, I swing back to a parallel position whether the club in my hand is a driver, a 3-wood, a 3-iron, a 7 -iron, or a wedge (except for pitches or chips).
As the club shortens, your clubhead arc automatically decreases, so there’s no need to throttle back on your tempo. Besides, by keeping your swing length consistent you have the confidence that the length of your shots can be controlled solely through your club selection.
