Smooth transition at the top?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I think I've solved the problem of my swing?  I know, always be skeptical of this claim. I've never been able to understand having a smooth transition at the top, but I think I might have some insight.  I have been jerking the club downwards prematurely during my backswing; it just doesn't work if I do that.  Instead, think of an amusement park ride called "the Fireball" or "Super Loops".  Please see the following link on YouTube.    

 

 

Notice how when the vehicle moves up the tracks, it smoothly stops and goes down slowly at first and accelerates uniformly.

 

I was thinking of this today and hit the ball wonderfully.  I shot a 91 with three three putts and one five putt.  Look out PGA tour, here I come (lol).

It can help.  My instructor has me working on slowing down my swing from A1 to A5 then accelerating.  He wants a smooth transition at A4.
