ID:	3086347 Golf instructors talk about the transition on the downswing, shifting the lower body weight forward but this can be difficult for older golfers. See what Nick Faldo recommends and an alternative approach that may be easier and more reliable.

    Certainly an important move...always interesting to note other little things pros do we never realize

      I see good players lowering themselves to the ball through knee bend at address rather than bending over from the waist.

        They also keep their feet planted firmly on the ground as long as they can so their calf muscles are pulled from the Achilles tendon up to the lower kneecap. Unless the heels are grounded firmly enough to resist the pull on the calf muscles from the kneecap, bending at the knees alone won't give them any power and will cost them both distance and accuracy because they would have less balance.

              From 3:00-4:10.....right arm angle width the key.....if you take the club down a touch from the top and allow your right elbow to fold,notice how easy it is to cast the club with the wrists.if you increase the right arm angle however,casting becomes much more difficult if not impossible

                The key fundamental to increasing swing speed with your arms is the arms must be allowed to work independently from your body.

                The following is my understanding how AMG (Atheletic Motion Golf) would describe the arm motion in the golfswing.
                1. Timing
                The golfswing takes place in a much shorter time than we think. For this reason the proper golf swing sequence is not as simple as we think it should. It is a little more complicated than that.

                Things happen much faster than we are expecting.
                1. Arm Movement
                In the golfswing the primary movement of the arms is an upwards lifting motion. The arms lift up and then the right arm folds.

                The arms primary motion is not swinging back.

                The arms do not stay connected to the body. The arms lift up.

                Rotation in the golfswing comes from the body rotating. (and not the arms swinging back.)
                1. Proper Swing Sequence (Things happen in this order or sequence)
                During the takeaway, shift your weight to the right. By the time arms are at 9 o’clock the shift right has stopped and then lateral motion starts moving in the opposite direction. By the time the backswing has completed the body has returned back to center.

                At the same time, during the takeaway and the backswing, the arms separate from the body and lift upwards and finally the right arm folds at the top of the backswing.

                Very early in transition, think the whole body (sternum and hips) falls into the left side. The left side gets pressure.

                Lower body rotates

                As the shoulders rotate and the complete left side of body is extending up and the arms lower.

                The arm movement is initially a lowering motion that is mostly straight down with very little outward motion. The key point here is the arms are disconnected from the core and they move independently from the shoulders.
