John Senden Golf Swing Analysis

The finishing 3 holes at Innisbrook are called the “Snake Pit”, but that didn’t stop John Senden from going Birdie, Birdie, Par and winning the Valspar Championship on Sunday.  This ended a 7 year plus drought for John.  The two Birdies in the last 3 holes includes a 70 yard chip-in on 16, and a 20 foot Birdie make on 17.  Congrats John.  Now let’s have a look at the swing that helped him win.

    Thanks, CJ! Should John stay connected throughout his swing with “Both” the right arm & left arm Or just one or the other? Also, should he hinge his left wrist & rotate his left forearm immediately in the backswing? Thanks!

      Greg Hill,
      Thanks Greg for the question. I think what your asking is more of a personal feel. Remember connected does not mean glued to the body. In regards to the hinge and rotate I would have him feel as if he is brushing his right leg with the butt end of the club at the start. That will get his hands a little more to the inside and then he can hinge the club and rotate his arms.
      Keep em Long and Straight,

    Great explanation of the two “planes” involved in the swing. I’ve never seen that illustrated before. Staying within those two planes makes so much sense.

    Thank you.

    In the Senden analysis, it was mentioned that professional golfers want to “keep the club in front of them”. What does that mean?
