http://www.simpleswingthoughts.com Hey everyone in this video Terry is going to explain the impact golf swing position.
At the top of the backswing in golf you want to drop your arms straight down, keeping your head behind the ball, to start the downswing. This does a few things, it keeps your weight on your trail side as your club comes into impact. This is very important in the impact golf swing. The right elbow will come down and seal to our right side.
As the arms are dropping the right side begins to speed up during the arm drop picking up club head speed and power. As your arms drop and come into impact the trail shoulder stays underneath the lead elbow until impact. This promotes an inside approach swing path to the golf ball.
When we approach the mid way point on the downswing, called the slot position, the hip begin to clear to make room for the golf club. This natural clearing only happens if your head position stays behind the ball.
When the club shaft is parallel to the ground and approaching impact golf swing position the trail forearm will deliver the power blow through the golf ball if you set your grip the the bowed leverage position at set up. When we get into this position the trail side shuts down so the energy can pass to the lead side. If the trail side kept going then there would be no energy transfer for power. This is why there is no energy in casting because all the energy has been absorbed when the wrist break. Very important concept in the impact golf swing position.
At impact everything flattens out, the wrists flatten, the arms straighten out etc…this is where the energy transfer takes place from tail side to lead side. This is the only place in the golf swing where your arms are totally straight. There is absolutely no flipping here at the ball, as the club rotates through the club squares for a split second then it rotates through to the lead side on the swing plane.
During the slot position in the impact golf swing, you want the club shaft vertical with the shaft in the middle of your bicep. This position promotes the club getting out in front of you and not getting stuck.
