Winning Edge with Lin

Since I was young, I’ve had a very unique swing. It is not something which golf coaches will teach you but it has worked for me since I started my career as a professional. Despite my ‘different’ swing, I still have some key points which are very important to a consistent swing.

Step 1
This is how I set-up when I address the ball for my tee shot. Take note that the ball is placed slightly in line with my left toe. Also notice that my feet are positioned in a relaxed position. When I start my back swing, I always remember to maintain the ‘V’ shape from my shoulders to my grip.

Step 2
When I take my back swing, I’m rotating my right shoulder and not forcing my hands to move. Remember to keep your eye on the ball. Don’t move your head too much.

Step 3
I’m an old man and I don’t hit my ball as hard as the younger players. So during my downswing, I take it slow and easy to get more impact and ensure that my ball goes straight. I keep my weight 60% on the right and 40% on my left feet. Remember to turn your waist on your down swing for more power.

Step 4
Here’s how I finish my swing. It is different from other players as I finish slightly higher. But it is a swing which I have confidence in and which helped me win six Asian Tour titles.
