HOW TO USE LEFT HAND AND LEFT ARM IN THE BACKSWING

Role of arms is to move up, down and up.  The body moves(turns) with them.  The body turns so arms can swing up.  


LEFT SIDE OF THE BODY


Particularly  left arm and hand move the clubhead back and up to the top in the backswing.


Left arm create a swing arc.  In order to get a correct position, the body must turn properly. 


Once reach to the top, swing left arm down to the ball, taking the same path.  The body turn needs to be reactive.

BACKSWING TO DOWNSWING MOVE

HOW TO START THE BACKSWING

There is always a trigger to start the backswing.  That trigger is the right hip.  Move it slightly to the right side, this move pulls the left hand and arm and the clubhead back and up. 


HOW TO START THE DOWNSWING

As the clubhead reaches to the top, the left leg and left hip start opposite direction. This is how centrifugal force is created and the way to accelerate the clubhead speed.

LEFT ARM, LEFT LEG, LEFT HIP MOVE IN THE DOWNSWING

AT THE TOP

Shoulders are turned 90 degree and remain 90 degree as the downswing begins.  Keep fully turned position and swing the left arm and hand toward the ball.  If you did correctly, lateral shift (balance moving to left)should take place as left leg move.  


As the left hand enters the release area, right foot and right knee kick in and snap the right hand into the shot. Shoulders should be square timing at impact.
