Pivot driven requires less timing than arm driven…HOGWASH, POPPYCOCK and BUFFALO CHIPS.
The whole debate over timing and pivot versus armsy is a red herring.
All swings require timing and inconsistent swings are because the arms are not linked up properly with the pivot.
Most people who feel armsy have their arms trailing their pivot, the pivot stalls to catch up and that is where the armsy handsy feeling comes from. So in essence, your arms have to start sooner to let the pivot square the club and be less armsy. Anyone who knows anything about the swing will tell you nearly all of it is counterintuitive because it’s so reactive.
The most armsy flippy, swings are the ones where in transition the arms are passive, the hips and body fire, then have to stall to wait for the arms, hands and club to catchup.
The swings that require less club rotation by the hands rolling, are the ones that the arms link up in transition.
