Common senior golf swing flaws

A COMMON swing flaw with senior golfers is that they tend to set up crouching too close to the ball, according to Bruce Green; Head Golf Professional at Royal Melbourne Golf Club.

Green says many older golfers, including some of the senior tour pros, unconsciously start dropping their chins closer to the ball and this prevents them from making a full body turn and a full, unimpeded swing.

In this YouTube video, presented by GolfZone, Green explains this fault and provides some other senior golfer swing improvement suggestions. Green, a twice Victorian PGA Champion and winner of more than 40 Pro-Ams, has been Head Professional of the Royal Melbourne Golf Club for 23 years.
