When I say "as one" I mean should you rotate them both at the same speed, so that they both will match up in their rotation on the backswing?
Reason I ask is because since the spine can rotate more than the hips, should the spine be rotated more quickly - or should you rotate them at the same pace, then when the hips reaches it's limit, keep rotating the spine until it turns 90* while the hips stay in the fixed position
Here's a pic of what I mean, you can see his spine is rotated far more than his hips, because the hips have reached their limit
Okay I played 18 early this morning. First one out. They sent us off the back, as they had a middle school (9 hole) tourney going off the back at 8AM. I finished my 18 holes and went over to see where the middle schoolers were, and how they were doing. I watched them play a couple of holes. Every last one of them dragged their driver up to the teebox. Not neccessarily off the teebox, but always onto the teebox.
So, I was curious and asked one of the parents there. "What's up with dragging the driver?"
The parent told me the kids had been coached to do that. When asked why I was told that dragging the driver to the teebox covers the face in dew. The idea being the wet driver face will reduce spin off the face.
"Does that actually work?" I asked.
"No idea, but they've been told to do it."
A million things went through my mind.
Firstly, Is that legal?
Secondly, if its not legal, what kind of coach teaches middle schoolers to break the rules? I would think at middle school level you are just trying to get them to enjoy the game and play by the rules.
