The Ball Just Gets in the Way As You Turn

This concept gives the feeling of a “continuous” movement through impact! This is what we want. Nothing happens at the ball. The ball just gets picked up as the body turns. This is where the hands want to take over and do something. Impact is quiet. Impact is Continuous. Impact is not a spot you hit at, it has length. The arms and club are being drug along by the body rotation. This is the moment we focus on, we practice on, we must have “Passive Hands & Passive Arms”. The whole body is working equally and together through impact. The shaft is up the arm, the shaft is leading the club face, the body is committed, turning and accelerating, pulling the arms and club in front of the body with the whole body mass. The ball just gets in the way and is brought along.

This concept is dynamic and athletic. You don’t do it, it happens (like throwing a ball) smoothly and naturally. If you let the Large Muscles take control and practice letting them take control, you will experience this awesome feeling and hit the ball straight and long. Letting go of doing something at the ball takes practice. Those that put in the time, reap the benefits. You can’t think your way past practice and repetitions for lasting change… Ross
