Further to my learning I have come on even more! From shanks to great ball striking, I am now starting and following through using my left arm to start and finish swing leaving right arm to be passive what great results solid out of centre hits

What's your 'left arm thing' Jamie?

It's exactly what I was talking about. Left side dominant and it has worked for me for many years. I became scratch afterwards. I am getting back into golf now and it still works like magic. I'm not sure about some folks saying use right scapula and what not.. Too weird for me. I know what works for me.

I'm using Dr. Scholl's foot spray on my club head. It wipes off with a towel.

I like left side dominant.

Who are you talking to?  Using the quote feature is a good thing.

Hi dunlucedreams I mean using my left side or arm to start the takeaway letting my right side be passive then on downswing pull through with left side again works a treat as you can see from impact pic:) thanks

I'm not sure I can understand this. I'd be interested to know exactly what you mean - is it more of a swing thought ie think of your left arm throughout the swing ? I just tried with a few practise swings (without a club) and I'm struggling to understand the concept.

Always interested in ways to help to hit the ball better :)

The feel is that during the initial part of the downswing it feels like you are pulling with your left shoulder. This is a reactionary force and not the primary force as the legs and hips are the primary initial source of power. Note that for me it's the opposite side.

Hi topgrape The feeling for me is to have more of a grip with the left hand and feel more of the clubs weight with left hand and arm keeping the triangle shape and just letting right arm fold naturally nice and loose:) lihu is very right too
