Right Hand. (Changed - 18/03/2011)


From the moment you begin the back swing movement, the left arm in the controlling factor of the rotational movement of the upper body unit, the right hand/right arm assumes control over the golf club so that it achieves the correct position at the top of the back swing movement but in addition, during the back swing movement the right arm must remain tucked against the waist for as long as possible.

As the upper body unit is forced to rotate into the down swing movement you must continue to keep the right elbow tucked into the waist whilst also concentrating on the right wrist to hold the golf club in the lagged position for as long as possible - until just before the hands return to the original address position.

At that point the right wrist, working in conjunction of the rotational movement of the upper body unit, delays the uncocking of the wrist in order to accelerate the club head into the back of the ball.

(By keeping the right arm against the waist the club face will return to the ball square to the target line.)

 

At the precise moment of impact, the left arm pulls the club head through the contact area whilst simultaneously the right arm is forced into the fully straightened position until both arms are fully extended.

(As the club head strikes the ball it is moving at a high velocity and therefore it will quickly move ahead of the hands.
Therefore the key to a correct follow through movement is to ensure that as soon as the the club head, the hands and the right shoulder assume a straight line, the upper body is frozen in this position, thus maintaining the alignment of the club head, the hands and the right shoulder as the follow through movement continues.

But importantly, this alignment of the club head, the hands and the right shoulder must be maintained until the left arm is forced to fold.)
