  1. Seve Ballesteros and others such as Nick FALDO recommended to put a glove or a towel beneath your right armpit to prevent THE right elbow to Fly off and keep it close to THE torso .
    As you show ,I find it restricts to much the move of THE right arm .
    Is it an improper drill ?

    • Raymond,

      Those are 2 golfers that were not known for distance plus Seve hit the ball everywhere. I want power and consistency. Never tuck the right armpit. Not one long driver I have ever seen does this. They all let this arm come away from their side.

    Paul,

    When I throw a ball, the lower body initiates the forward motion, but then my triceps fires for more power.

    In the golf swing, I know that the downswing trigger initiates, but do ever feel your triceps adding some speed as you go through? Or, does the arm straighten simply because of your rotational speed?

    Thanks!

      Jay,

      The throwing drill is to get people used to the move with the legs drive as it is the same move.

      No. I do not feel the triceps. My arms are powerless. The arms straighten because the mass is trying to get to its widest point which you pre-determined at address. If you set up with your arms extended you are saying your arc is that wide. Then when you let the mass go it will stretch out again until it cannot stretch out any more. In doing so, both arms would have to straighten.

WANT US TO CHECK YOUR SWING???

It's funny ... many years ago I took lessons at some of the best schools in the world.  This was when I was wintering in Orlando.  Once I got back to Canada, I had no way of having my teachers watch my swing to make sure I was doing the swing positions exactly right.  

Not knowing if I was doing things right or not would drive me crazy because not doing it exactly right was a waste of my time (I hate wasting time).

I don't want you wasting your time.  This is why I started offering Skype Lessons to former students, members and Swing Machine Golf followers.  Now there's a way (through Skype) we can see your actual golf swing.

For $39.95 or less, you can finally stop guessing and doubting yourself.  We'll explain what you are doing and what you need to be working on to develop a great golf swing.

If you're serious about developing a great swing please start taking Skype Golf Lessons with us today.
