Shoulder Turn on the Forward Swing

Hi, Dave Cahill here with Cahill Golf. Today I am going to talk about the shoulder turn during the forward swing. When do we use the shoulder turn or when does it happen?
In the last session Full Shoulder Turn we talked about how to get your full shoulder turn on the back swing. At takeaway, the shoulders turn perpendicular to the spine. Once your hands reach about as high as the lower hip you want to complete the shoulder turn. Momentum will carry you as far back as your flexibly comfortably allows.
In the forward swing a very similar thing happens. Turn when the hands get about down to hip height. At that point the left side is loaded up, weight transfers, and now turn into the ball. Turning the shoulders at that point imparts speed to the ball. It also squares the face of the club giving the ball correct direction.
