The Swing Lab: Golf Swing Mechanics – Tips #11-#20


What is the Swing Lab?

This is the place where I will be experimenting with my golf swing mechanics and testing out simple swing adjustments. Using tips from top golf instructors I will try the to make slight adjustments to the different parts of my swing such as grip, path, tempo, takeaway and more. The swing lab will be an archive of those adjustments and a review of how they worked for my specific swing mechanics.
