Left Side of the Body.- (Changed - 21/10/2016)


Upper Body Unit.

During the back swing movement you must hold the elbows as close together as is physically possible, the right elbow tucked against the waist and the biceps of both arm must be held against the chest cavity thus holding the upper body unit firmly together as a very compact unit.
(This applies during the back swing and the down swing movements.)

However as you make the back swing movement, you must focus on the left shoulder/arm to push the compact upper body unit to the end of the back swing movement.
( You must keep the right arm in a firm but passive condition throughout the back swing movement.)

During the down swing movement, as the hip movement force the passive compact upper body unit to rotate around the central core of the spine, it is important to understand that whilst hip movement forces the upper body unit to rotate into the down swing movement you have to focus on the left shoulder as the dominant element.
When the club head makes contact with the ball the right arm is quickly forced into the fully straightened position -- whilst the whole body turns to fully face the target area.
(Top class golfers physically force the right arm into the fully straightened position but for now simply allow this happen automatically.)


LOWER BODY

During the back swing movement the lower part of the body resists the rotational movement of the compact upper body movement.

However during the down swing movement it is the left leg and the left hip that force the hips to rotate towards the target area thus forcing the compact upper body unit to rotate around the central core of the spine whilst the left arm remain held close to the right shoulder..
