If you think, at the top of the swing, that the arms/club are in a sense “weightless” (since the shoulders moved them to the top of the backswing), as they change direction, and gravity starts to pull them back down, the arms/club can easily be “moved” or “pulled down” essentially “milking” gravity or “using” gravity by unwinding the body. It is kind of like a child on a swing as it finishes one direction, there is a weightless sense for a second, then gravity takes over, and the swing changes direction and speeds up. Well, as this happens in the golf swing, the body’s rotation takes advantage of this and “helps” the arms/club back down and around to the left (right hander). In other words… “The body Swings the Arms/Club”. Watch the “Ross Move” to learn more. Or search the forums here for more discussions on this.
