The “Hands” … the Real Problem

I always felt the “Hands” were the big problem in golf. The hands can move so many different ways. They also can work against each other. But the real “Key” came when I realized if the hands are active during the swing (like trying to release or hit the ball using the hands), the body always stops rotating (just for a fraction of a second) to support this hit.  Ah Ha! so what happens when the body stops is… the club hands and arms now pass the body and this is a VERY WEAK POSITION.

 First, the radius (which should be a straight line down the front arm in line with the shaft leading the club face) is cut in half (because the wrist is bent at impact).   Also, the “Athletic” aspect is gone which would have ALL THE BODY moving or trapping the golf ball while it turns.  This flipped position also now closes the club face and makes the ball go left (right hander).  As the arms pass the body rotation, they create a new path to the left and pull the ball.  Now instead of the body pulling the arms through, the arms are now pulling the body (not good).
