We believe there are a number of ways to swing the golf club, but there's only one way to swing it efficiently, and it's based on what your body can do. As you approach 50, things such as making a full shoulder turn on the backswing and staying within your posture on the downswing aren't as easy as they used to be. The reason is, without maintaining the body's strength and flexibility, you can't do the things you used to do.
We hear all the time from golfers, particularly middle-age ones, that they keep getting the same lesson over and over, but they aren't getting any better. It's not that they're slow to learn, it's more likely that they can't physically do what the teacher is asking them to do.
We have identified five typical flaws that amateurs have in their swings -- and the physical limitations that might be causing them. You might have one or more of these swing flaws, but if you perform the prescribed exercises, you'll soon find you can improve your swing and counter the effects of aging at the same time.
