Universal Joint. (Changed - 08/11/2015)


 

Maintaining the upper body angles is one of the most important principles of the golf swing, so read this section and remember the content.

However at the address position the upper body is set at two particular angles as you look from the front view

First of all the upper body must be slightly tilted to the right so that the right hand can be comfortably placed on the golf club, but you also need to adopt a posture of the upper body which assume an forward angle of the upper body.

Therefore it is absolutely vital to the success of the golf swing that once these angles has been created, they must be strictly maintained throughout the golf swing, but especially during the down swing and the follow through movements.

 

However if you view the body from a side view you will note that the hips rotate on a entirely different angle to that of the upper body and this is when the technique of using the waist line as a universal joint is paramount.

A universal joint can be found on the transmission of a car and it is designed to allow two parts of a drive shaft to rotate in unity whilst held at different angles, therefore if this principle is transferred to the golf swing, it allows the upper torso to rotate around the central core of the spine whilst the hips rotate towards the target area, whilst strictly maintaining the relevant upper body angles.

Therefore at the address position the upper body and the lower body are set at different angles and the only way these angles can be maintained as the both parts rotate simultaneously and at exactly the same speed around their different axis is to use the waist line as a universal joint.

 

During the down swing and the follow through movement it is absolutely vital that the upper body angles are maintained from the very beginning of the down swing so that as the hips rotate towards the target area, the upper body unit can correctly rotate around the central core of the spine thus allowing the upper body unit to be rotated into the perfect position to enable you to force the right arm into the fully straightened position, but importantly, the universal principle must be upheld to the absolute end of the golf swing movement.
