Golf Analyzis (of a Swing) Part 3:
In this final part of the Golf Analyzis section, Percy Boomer briefly analyzes a young boy's swing"
Obviously, this is a very young swing, not faultless, but fundamentally good. Let's analyze it:
- It's a wide swing. Left arm straight, left wrist fully brokenback.
- The shoulders are still turned away from the ball while the hips are turned towards it, giving body flail.
- The left leg has straightened, but the wrists are still broken back.
- Shoulders now square with the line of flight.
- Up on the toes, stretching upwards through the body so that the wrists will snap open downwards.
- Left heel back to the ground.
- Head still down.
- Right arm straight . . . elbows still held together.
- In the sequence, the hands, and consequently the club head, have come down yet along.
A couple of faults to observe in the swing are:
- In position 2 and 3 the right leg is too stiff.
- He is looking at the ball with his right eye instead of "peeping at it with his left eye."
