Pelvic control refers to the ability to move the Pelvis independently of the rest of the body. The Pelvis is often called your Hips for the purpose of analysing the golf swing. It may seem strange to think that distance is achieved from control rather thanstrength or power. Have you ever thought ‘I’m just going to make a nice easy swing on the ball’ and sure enough you hit the ball further than you expected? This is often due to improved timing and sequencing of the swing.
