Right arm through impact

Right arm through impact

Postby Anders » Sat Sep 03, 2011 12:07 pm

Lag,
How can I as a tall player (190cm) have a bend right arm with a high right shoulder (flat shoulders) through impact. With the flat lie angles I found it even harder. I understand I have to bend my legs but it feels that bend legs hurts my ability to turn my hips and use my legs.
I probably not use my legs correctly...? Would you say that by using the ground or using the correct legaction the right arm automaticly would bend at impact? I am thinking of all the great ballstrikers of the past using the beautiful hitting action with a bend right arm at impact probably without any consious thoughts more than to hit the ball hard.
Thanks for a great forum!!

Byron Nelson was 6'1" and he got down there with a bent right elbow. Its hard at first...but you have to get Low Low Low...

Thanks bspeck!
Could the right elbow stay bend automaticly with the right body move!?
I hardly believe Nelson, Furyk, Sergio, Hogan etc never tried consiosly to keep the right arm bend. It happens for a cause...?

There are few things you can try to do... lots of things you can train to do.
If it's not in the swing DNA it won't hold.. but over time if you keep TRAINING.. then
you have a chance of it holding. Until then.. not much chance.

Golf is no different than anything else.. If you want to get good, you have to work hard and work
on the right things and either get lucky to find the right way yourself, or have good guidance and instruction.
If not, you will not likely get much better even with hard work. I know plenty of ball beaters that hit a lot of balls... ultimately with not much to show for it other than some impressive calluses and worn out grooves.

Skinny--you're training now for proper ground force pressures and a correct frozen right arm assembly, and the next two modules will solidify it all. Keep laying down heavy reps of Module 1 and 2.

Thank you for reigning me in there Paul - have read and heard it again and again here to take it one module at a time and be patient.

Thats a great 90 secs from mr nelson - quite funny to hear a player of that stature in the game talking about going through a period of shanking!

I am 6`1 tall and find it with my longer toys (flatter lie angles!) easier to have a bend righ arm...
This is a sequence with my 3 wood...


I am on my way to figure out why I have problems to do this with my shorter irons... Work in progress...

You are in good hands here - don´t ask me how many bad habits are in my swing from different swing philosophies!

Really looks good Chris.

I don't know what kind of player you are..but I can assure you, you are not too far away from some really good ball striking.
I'd ditch the frying pan quick and spend some time with a heavier persimmon to help develop your ball striking skills in a much more efficient and effective manner.

I'm 6'0 with good strength and flexibility, and I am a very steep downswing golfer at the moment :cry:

I am trying to shallow my downswing, but just can't seem to get it. My right elbow is not, for some reason getting to my front hip, and the right arm straightens way too early. Been searching for a feel, but just don't have it yet.
