Must See Video! Right Arm Action Revisited

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

One of the most watched videos on this website is one I did a few years ago on the movement of the right arm during the swing. I probably get more questions about the right arm than on any subject, and I have given a lot of thought to the subject since I filmed the first one. Here I’m in my basement going over my latest thoughts on how the right arm should function during the swing from address to the approach to impact. I think you will find some new ideas that will help, especially if you are one of many who, in spite of a clear understanding that the upper right arm needs to drive inward and the right forearm tip to more vertical, still find yourself leaving the arm “up and back” with the forearm tipping to more horizontal, the grip end moving straight down instead of out toward the ball, and the shaft steepening instead of flattening.

Is the action of skimming a stone across a lake similar to this movement?

Great video explaining one of my big faults – right shoulder continues to move too far back during the backswing. It actually turns so far back that it drives toward the target thereby pushing my upper body forward slightly ruining what at one point was a nice backswing. From there I can never get my right arm back in front of my body (additionally, my upper body is slightly moving forward/toward the target when I begin driving my lower body to start the downswing). Question: Is there a good way to judge when to stop the right shoulder from going back?

Wayne, In the background of this video is a room with exercise equipment. Can you do a video on the exercises you use that have helped your golf swing?
