Many golf students are confused about whether they should keep their arm straight while making their back swing. This way of teaching has changed over the years. The answer is that you do not "have to" keep your arm straight. The only time your arm should be straight is at the point of impact.
While keeping your arm straight on the back swing can create a wider arc in your golf swing thus, giving your swing the opportunity to produce more clubhead speed (like Tiger Woods), it is not for everyone. Some golfers have physical limitations (like Calvin Peete) and cannot keep their arm straight. In some cases, a straight arm hinders the golfer from creating the correct position. Take a look at Fred Couples and Nancy Lopez......are their arms straight on their backswing?
The new theory about clubhead speed has to do with a figure skater. When a figure skater is spinning around in a circle and she pulls her arms closer to her body......what happens? The answer is that she spins faster. Based upon technology, education and physical conditioning golfers are able to keep their arms closer to their bodies. Which means they are able to create more clubhead speed. Which results in more distance ! Learn more on how to "UNLEASH the Power"?
KEEPING YOUR HEAD STILL
Should you keep your head still when you swing the golf club ?
This theory has definitely changed over the years and in fact, it has hurt more
golfers than it has helped. Grip Pressure
Should the grip pressure be felt between the last three
fingers of the left hand (if you are a right-handed golfer) or should the grip pressure
be constant in all the fingers throughout the entire golf swing ? You are more than
welcome to choose what feels comfortable to you. That is the important thing....do
what you feel is right. In other words, I do not think of the last three fingers
as my grip pressure point. I believe (based upon research) that you will want to
hold the golf club with consistent pressure in all of your fingers. Just ask Mr.
Al Geiberger (Mr. 59). He has a great book out on the market that breads pressure.
Pressures in all aspects of our lives that are parallel to our own golf game. Golf Lessons
Golf lessons are a prescription to your overall golf game. Too many of us have spent many dollars and time trying to perfect the golf swing. It has come to the point in time where we all need to take what we have and
