On the downswing, it is crucial that the hands/arms don’t choke off the body rotation. This happens when the body senses that the arms want to help (somewhere during the downswing). When this happens, the body takes a supportive role. The arms can’t move on their own, so they will need the (body holding still) for support, so they can pull ahead. In other words, the arms will use the body to sling themselves through. When this happens, the body stops rotating to support the arms. We want the body to control the entire downswing and that can happen as long as the arms/hands don’t take over. The way to learn this is to practice controlling your grip pressure and maintain an awareness that the arms are PASSIVE. The body must be able to control the arms/hands.
