  • Rotating Arms Thru Impact

    OK, time to get back to the topic of "Golf Instruction"

    So, just wanted to ask if my impressions here have any substance: When i start with a slightly open face at address, take my full swing, but then i try, really hard, to turn my arms over thru impact, i feel that i might be adding a bit more of the club head speed. Is this a possibility ? Haven't had a chance to try it on the course yet, but the "swoosh" pitch in my back yard sounds different.
    Cheers to all, and let's hit the fairways next week

    yes, effectually you are increasing the toe speed and the toe will rotate well past the heel at the finish of impact.

    Check all of the Tom Tomasello vids on youtube, some very Interesting stuff.

      Thanks so much for this
      Checking them ALL out, but especially interesting to me are his instructions when he was quite old and barely able to hold the club - lots of "golfing wisdom" there, IMHO of course.
      Cheers !

            Well, played two rounds with heavy duty "arm rotation" and it resulted in an un-predictable, almost un-controlable ball flights. Well, on to the next "magical move"
            Thanks to all for helping and cheers !

                  If your referring to consciously rotating your arms your results are on par with an decent instruction on the topic. The rotating your arms has to happen naturally for the most part through doing a whole lot of other things properly. I struggle with the slice and tried this with the same results. I found if I slowed my take away and didnt sway, had the proper grip and pressure, and again didnt sway on my follow through while swinging out to the left (i'm left handed) I would get a nice subtle draw. Your timing would need to be impeccable to force rotation of your arms and have decent results.

                    first, it's not an arm rotation, it's a forearm rotation.
                    the forearm rotation, a simple crossing of the forearms after the ball is contacted.
                    It keeps your hands/arms in sync with your body and shoulder rotation, otherwise your trail shoulder will move outside, and you'll cut across.
                    It takes time.

                      I think in every organized sport I've played, I've been coached to use big muscles before small muscles in developing a skill. So in golf I try to use legs/hips/shoulders instead of arms/hands.

                          Does that not contradict the principle that your arms should stay connected with your body? I thought a one piece takeaway was the best approach. Focusing on your arms would cause you to stray from that.
