Finally -- a real answer to crossing the line - Page 2

post #19 of 22

In my biased opinion, I believe the key action of ensuring one is "laid off at the top",

is to rotate the forearms clockwise around each other during the backswing.

 

Try this at home, take an imaginary club in your hands and address an imaginary

ball.  Start your backswing in slow motion (that's why I chose an imaginary club)

and rotate the forearms clockwise around each other.

 

Stop when one's shoulder is either at ninety degrees or less depending on one's flexibility.

Turn your head to the right and look at your hands and which way the imaginary club is pointed.

It should pointing to the left of the target.  From that position, rotate your forearms around each other counterclockwise, examine your hands and where the imaginary club is pointed.  It should be across the line.

 

I tried this with a real club on the driving range and it seems to work quite well.

Forearm rotation is key on the backswing and downswing and

at least one organization agrees with me.

@Michael Lee, you resurrected a two year old post and didn't quote anyone in particular, so it's unclear to whom you are addressing. Some of the members who posted in this thread aren't even active anymore...

Just saying, if you feel like you are having a discussion with yourself, it's because you are.

Sorry, I didn't know the thread was that old.  I was merely investigating

how to "lay off the club" and I thought I'd share my results.

 

No harm intended.
