Golf Life: Scott Turow

The Book on Turow
ANALYSIS BY RICK MARTINO
In his setup, Scott's feet are shoulder-width apart, which is good, but he needs to open up his left foot and tilt his right shoulder down. On the take-away, his torso has shifted directly over his back leg, his shoulders have failed to turn and his club path is directly behind the ball rather than on the proper arc. Halfway back, Scott's arms are nicely extended and his wrists are hinging, but his left leg has turned inward, creating an unstable position. At the top of his backswing, his weight has shifted beyond his back foot, and the low point of his swing occurs well before impact, which causes a high, weak ball flight. At the finish, his weight is too far back, his left foot has turned out, and his head is too far behind his body, which puts strain on the lower back. If he makes the changes to his address position and carries them through the swing, Scott will strike the ball on a more correct, descending path.
