If one is going to use the entire shaft, and not just the club head, then the hands needs to be responsive to what's above and inside them. Gotta love "hope they make it". :lol:

IF I had to describe the action of the left shoulder, I would say it moves briskly to the top of the backswing, drops down (from knee flex), feels slow to near impact, then moves as quickly and viciously as possible from impact to finish with it rotated as far as possible.

Thanks Lag and others for answering my query.

I must admit hitting the ball with a frozen left arm (I'm left handed) all the way to P4 really engages the core and trunk and inhibits swinging the club with just the arms and hands. I recently came across the video below of a ball striking clinic by Henrik Stenson where he makes a clear distinction between the intentions of the hitting protocol versus the swinging protocol as it relates to consistency. I have no doubt Lag will agree with almost everything Henrik has to say in this video.

1:01 to 1:10 in the video is the golf swing.
