Had a pretty good day today at the good old executive course. It was one of those rare days where I hit the center of the face on all my shots. I was even crushing my 4 iron. On days like this my arms feel loose and my weight seems to get to my left side perfectly. I wish I could hit like this all the time lol it seems to only happen when I am relaxed and not thinking about positions or weight shift or anything. I can just feel the weight of the club head and feel like I’m just whipping it right through the ball.
Not in a single example in your video of “arms only” did you actually swing using only arms. In every example you tightened your left leg muscles, turned your torso and let your arms remain loose. That’s exactly the point for anyone saying the arms “generate the speed”. Are your arms swinging fast in your video? Yes but that had almost nothing to do with any of the muscles in your arm which is the point of many people. Your arm muscles are passive and the speed is from the whip, several other commenters noted this but maybe didn’t express it the same way. Not in a single example of your arms only swings were you using only the muscles in your arms. Not one. If that were the case your waist would remain parallel to the ball, there should be no change in muscle tension in your legs other than what’s needed for you to stand. No muscle tension in your torso should be felt either. Literally shut off all of the muscles in your body except for your arms and then see how fast you swing. That’s the point of people advocating for powerless arms and your discussion (which is more of a confusion about semantics) has nothing to do with the point people make advocating for not using the arm muscles for the swing.
At about 1:15 in this video he shows the silliness of actually using only your arm muscles for your swing. It’s almost useless. I hate to say it but your argument saying the arms generate speed isn’t saying the same thing as saying the arm muscles aren’t responsible for generating speed in the golf swing. Your arguing something else entirely and doesn’t add much to the relaxed arm muscle advocate discussion. It’s the equivalent of what someone else said about a pitcher; is his arm moving fast? Yep. Is that because of his arm muscles. Almost the opposite is true.
