Welcome to Part 2!
Learn how the body pivot transports the hand-based power pack to ensure stability and structure through impact.
The video starts toward the tail end of the Part 1 video for review so we can see how the left hand-wrist-forearm action works to
– torque the upper left arm inward so it dynamically marries into the upper pectoral as it pushes backward so that the straightening right elbow can push against a resisting left hand into and through impact.
– This left hand / left side resistance to the pushing right side is the key to finishing the pivot.
– The resisting left arm through impact becomes a structural extension of the left side of the body so that when the right arm straightens through impact it pushes the left side open at just the perfect rate and keeps the pivot moving.
– This works much more dependably than trying to time when to open the left side and trying to pull the right side into the shot with the right amount of force to fit the shot at hand.
– The continued pushing of the right hand against the left hand past impact ensures the hip pivot doesn’t stall or decelerate;
– this is critical because when the pivot stalls/decelerates then the club head momentum will overtake the hands and the club head will flip or roll through impact without the stability needed to offset the force of impact with the ball and the ground.
It is important to have the intention to keep pushing the right hand against the left to a finish that has the right shoulder well past the left shoulder to help ensure that we keep pushing the pivot through and past impact;
– this intention will help to ensure that the momentum of the club head doesn’t overtake the hands to cause club face flipping and rolling through impact due to a stalled out pivot.
