  1. It seems for me if I don’t turn my body to start the swing and the “triangle” of my shoulders, torso and arms doesn’t stay connected until my turn is complete I can’t generate enough power due to the lack of body becomes all arms and it’s a fake, incomplete shoulder turn for me and I end up coming over the top instead of inside and on plane.
    I like to stop my arms when the shoulder/torso turn is done and then start the downswing patiently and in sync and on plane…in a perfect world!
    I like to think the arms are a great part of the swing but I like them to be followers and not leaders or somehow they try and overtake the swing and I end up with an eventual weak shot!
    It’s a concept I struggle with but if I don’t rein the arms in they want to dominate.

  2. Just goes to prove people should not fixate on one way of doing things. I struggle to complete my backswing. Not a very flexible lower back, so I’ll see if this helps. Thank you.

    1. Definitely not Steve, different patterns and thoughts to suit different people. One size / style does not fit all. Good luck. Thanks al

  3. You make me realize something more than a [one piece take=away]. THIS IS AWSOME.
    Thank YOU Alistair! Have a great day!

  4. I like this tip because it is not designed for people who are as flexible as a PGA tour pro. So, the way I see it, is that I can establish & maintain triceps to pectoral contact at P1, or club shaft parallel to the ground and pointing at the target. Once I have that, I turn my body and move my arms until my body stops, and then, I start my downswing. I currently do this same drill by sticking a 4″ diameter, nerf ball under my right armpit and keeping it there until I’ve made contact. I believe that a consistent inside to out swing is a must for accurate golf. I also believe that the upper right arm must contact the right pec on the downswing, and, just as importantly, the right elbow must have a precisely defined destination on the downswing: the watch pocket on my jeans.
