3 pictures of Henrik Stenson’s powerful swing (and what you can learn)

March 17, 2020

In June of 2018, Hennrick Stenson held an astonishing career GIR percentage of 75%! Here are a few things that make the Ice Man so successful and worthy of his nickname. The good news, you at home can implement these qualities immediately and be the “Ice Man” of your group.

Backswing

Stenson does an amazing job of controlling the club’s balance point (Center of Mass). He does this by keeping it as close to be aligned with the hands as possible. Too much in either direction, disaster to control the club.


Impact

As a reward to a quality backswing, Stenson is able to keep his arms and club close to him on the downswing; the reward, speed and accuracy.


Release

Clean. Fluid. Result of solid backing fundamental.
