Golf Tips Todd Elliott telliott@hideawaybeachclub.org It’s all in the hips” is a funny line from the movie “Happy Gilmore.” Happy’s teacher, Chubbs, tells him this line while helping with his golf swing. The line has some truth to it. The hip movement is important for many reasons. The number one reason is that hip rotation affects pelvic rotation and footwork. If a golfer’s hips move properly, the correct balance and footwork can be achieved. Many of us have limitation in our hip rotation.
