While standing behind a golfer…the left hip goes left and the hands go right. These actions cancel and it looks connected and fluid.
That is what creates the inside out swing path. If the left hip doesn’t clear left, the hands have to pull the club left to hit it. Also known as a snatch and/or OTT.
Any effort to purposely swing inside out when the left hip isn’t clearing left, is a DISASTER. Disconnected, shanks, blocks, snap hooks, etc.
The point of today’s post is not as technical and complicated as it sounds. I am illustrating that the golf swing is not something where you can “zero out” certain aspects.
It is an action/reaction movement.
Today’s post is on the same wavelength as holding the lag. You can’t hold the lag with the hands or the hips won’t turn properly or in sync. The club needs to release, the hips turn to prevent it from happening too quickly.
Two opposing forces work together to produce the desired motion.
If you try and swing inside/out on purpose, BAD!!!!
If your left hip moves away from the ball, clears and allows your hands to go “out” to the ball…GOOOOOD!!!!!!
That is why you must create feels that produce synchronized movements, versus isolating one body part and creating a specific movement or position.
