John Miller, a golf instructor at the Reserve in Indian Wells, California, believes that the key to a successful golf swing is to keep it simple. He believes that many golfers make the mistake of targeting too precisely and end up manipulating their swing instead of letting it flow naturally.
Miller believes that the best way to do this is to think of the golf swing as a slanted circle, with the left arm radius on the backswing and the right arm radius on the forward swing. He also believes that the right arm is crucial for power, and that the best way to get the club back to the ground is to simply unfold what was folded in the backswing.
The Unnatural Game
Golf is an unnatural game in the sense that the ball doesn’t move. This makes it difficult for golfers to react to, as they have nothing to react to. John Miller believes that this is why many golfers make the mistake of targeting too precisely and end up manipulating their swing instead of letting it flow naturally.
The Slanted Circle
John Miller believes that the best way to ensure a successful golf swing is to think of it as a slanted circle. The backswing should have a radius of the length of the left arm, and the forward swing should have a radius of the length of the right arm. This will ensure that the club is released properly and that the golfer has the power they need to hit the ball.
