It would probably surprise you to find out that if you are an amateur and have a handicap above scratch there is a very good possibility that your overall tempo is too slow, and that your rhythm is off because your backswing is too slow relative to your forward swing.
Many great players don’t come into impact on the shaft plane, but I still prefer to aim for this.
A further look at creating lag in the swing, here specifically relating the golf swing motion to a low sidearm throwing motion.
Lag is what separates the “haves” from the “have-nots” in the game of golf.
An important discussion of the action of the left and right wrist during the swing, as well as the concept of “squeezing” the arms together in transition and into the downswing
This continues the discussion of the downswing pivot movement to and through impact.
This is the movement that keeps the arms from swinging “over the top”
Here we go over the movement of the pivot, the arms, the hands and wrists, and the club.
We have discussed the feel of compression in the feet, and now we go over the body movement that creates that feeling of pressure into the ground.
