square to the arc (from Roy) - Page 6
sorry guys i do not proclaim to be a golf guru or how the swing really works but the only way i can describe the feeling is if i stood in front of you and told you to smack me with the back of your left hand you prob would not rotate it first it would just simple swing back like a door and back through on one axis , try it , stand there and pretend to slap someone with the back of your left hand . That is the feeling i have in my swing with shoulder turn , with short irons i sometimes dont need much shoulder turn , but i can not do it without a strong grip . (cup the left wrist i guess ) rather than rotate
Now i am not saying it does stay square ? but it feels like it and i def dont rotate my forearm..
ps , i dont want any abuse because this is just how i feel my swing
i am a quite athletic 40 year old and can get the club past par with this swing , i prob will struggle with it when older i dont deny that :(
i have also used the conventional swing where i rotate my forearm
It doesn't stay "square" and the problem with your analogy is that your right arm/hand is not "on the club" when you are slapping someone. They're not analogous situations.
I'm glad you have a feel that works for you, but as we see all the time, feel ain't real.
At this point nobody has a clear picture what "it" is. It's highly unlikely you don't turn your forearms during your swing so film a video and let's see it. Do one in slow motion ideally.
Seriously - let's see it.
