The more I teach the more I want to toss these “restrictive” ideas out the window. There are always exceptions, but the golf swing is best as a cohesive motion where everything matches and works together.
Sometimes a temporary passive feel might work, but I am of the ilk that we need to speed up what’s lagging, instead of slow down what’s racing.
Now if you want to delay what is firing too quickly, I am not opposed to that. However, slowing it down just leads to “just swing easy.”
Again, sometimes you have to slow something down, for something else to link up, but that’s temporary. Let’s try and throw all of this slowing down and passivity out with yesterday’s newspapers and get things moving.
No more restricted hip turn, passive hands and swing in a barrel.
I know, I know, I am against lower body lateral movement in backswing and upper body lateral movement in downswing….but only because they restrict the movements we want…i.e. free backswing hip turn and free downswing arm swing.
