The Golf Swing Through The Ball
These 2 pictures illustrate our discussion on the golf swing "through the ball":
The frightful result is shown vividly in Photo B.
This fellow has succeeded in overcoming all possibility that his club head won't catch up with his hands. It has actually caught them already.
It is from two to three feet farther along its orbit than it should be, in relation to his hands.
Compare it with Photo A and notice (as soon as you recover from the shock) the differences not only in the club position but in the body, the head, the shoulders, the hips, legs, knees, and feet.
The weight hasn't moved to the left as it should, the right foot is flat on the ground, the body shows no bowing-out tendency and the right shoulder is coming around high toward the ball.
From this position nothing like the player's potential power is going into the shot.
An inordinate part of it has been wasted in making sure the club head would catch up with his hands. This is a horrible example of what preoccupation with the club head leads to.
This is one of the greatest golf pictures the authors have ever seen for showing how not to swing the club.
The best part of it, too, is that this is not a posed picture.
The subject was hitting a drive during the course of a round and trying to carry a fairway trap about 170 yards from the tee.
The Funniest part of it is that he did carry it!
All that proves, however, is how much farther he would have hit the ball (the trap never would have worried him) if he had had even the semblance of a good swing.
The instant you make the club head move faster than it normally is moved by the turning and rocking shoulders, the instant you make it go faster than the hands, the eternal triangle changes shape.
The next section will deal with what COAM does for your golf swing.
