Improve golf swing mechanics with a few simple steps. Note: Tour pros do not coil as far as they can and subsequently uncoil forcefully. A concept of the motion of hitting a golf ball that separates the move into two distinct parts, e.g. back then forth, one then two, is misleading. Conceiving of the overall motion from address to finish as blended, continuous and fluid will enable you to rotate your hips in an opposite direction from your arms/cocking wrists/whiphead, maximizing stretch in some large torso muscles. Sam Snead said he felt “oily” when playing well. When you’re addressing the ball and then lift’ n coiling (with suppleness!), visualize a whip, where the handle (hips) starts forward while the outer strand of the whip (arms and whipshaft) still is flying backward. One of Webster’s definitions of supple: “flexible when twisted”.

Many amateurs let this V point to somewhere outside their right shoulders, which looks like not the place to be. Concerning the left hand, you can see a bending backward of the left hand at the wrist. Though you cannot see it, the thumb of the left hand is fitting comfortably in the slot formed by the two muscular pads at the base of the right palm. This puts the upside-down ‘V’ formed by the left thumb and base of the left hand pointing toward the very same range as the V in the right hand. The left thumb is parallel to the shaft and points straight down the shaft--you feel the club’s handle near the center of the underside of your thumb. You now know how to fondle the handle of a golf club.
