Hacker, have a friend assist you with this drill.
Take the club to the top of your back swing and hold this position.
Now have your friend grab the club with both hands from behind you, left hand on the club head and the other about mid shaft.
Explain to him to try and resist the club from going in the downward motion.
When he is ready, you try to complete the swing, easily on the first attempt and then with a little more force / effort upon the next attempts.
If you can not pull the club down to about waist level or the arms bend at the elbows, then you are only pulling the club with your hands and arms.
If you can pull the club down to waist level without the arms breaking, then you are swinging correctly and it should feel
like you shoulders and arms are working together, properly.
The final result when done properly, you should end up with the club pointed downward with the hands below waist level.
From this position, the rest of the swing would be natural for the completion of the swing.
Instruct your friend to release his hold on the club when you reach this position.
Just use caution not to pull the club out of your friends hands.
