Understanding the functions of the pivot
Pivot: The thing that makes poor golfers look like poor golfers’ is a poor pivot.
Torso tilt, or axis tilt, is one of the most important elements of a perfect pivot, but is only one of many.
The motion of feet, knees, hips and shoulders all play important roles in the Pivot.
Simply stated, you want to ‘pivot’ around your spine on the backswing and then tilt so that when you pivot around it on the downswing, the force from that pivot-through motion will guide and power the club on the correct track to, and through, the ball.
