At the finish of his swing, 2011 U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy has pivoted completely.
It’s amazing how much weekend players struggle to make the pivot turns in their golf swings. Give them a plastic flying disk, a baseball bat, or even an ax and they will probably make the proper move naturally. Use a few simple checks during your swing to be sure you’re pivoting properly as you turn back and through.
Both of McIlroy’s elbows are still straight because he has turned his shoulders early.
