There are many ways to talk about staying connected within in the golf swing. It assumes the premise that when the arms and body are moving together, the overall timing of the swing and path of the golf club will be improve and provide better and consistent ball striking. Keeping the upper arms connected to your chest on the backswing, impact and follow-through is probably the most common form of connection, and it can also be misunderstood. On the backswing, keeping the upper arms connected to your chest allows the path of the golf club to move inside and naturally along the proper arc. A great drill to practice the feeling of a connected golf swing is to place a glove, towel, tissue or dollar bills in both armpits as you address the golf ball. You can even just tuck the upper sleeve your shirt in there.
Legendary coach David Leadbetter says he hasn't come across the perfect swing yet, and doesn't think he ever will. The goal should always be to find the best swing which works for you. To do that, Leadbetter believes the key is to forget one of golf's biggest misnomers. One of my favourite expressions in golf instruction is that the dog the body has to wag the tail the hands, arms and club ; the tail does not wag the dog. To get everything working in the correct manner, you need to break the swing down into three aspects. The first component is the way you set up to the ball.
We often hear the term "connection" with regards to the golf swing. So- what does connection truly mean? In mainstream golf instruction the term "connection' highlights the necessity to connect the arms to the body. We see all types of drills relating to placing towels under the arms and swinging in an attempt to keep the arms connected to the body. Other variations of this would be placing a headcover or a glove under either the left or right armpit and swinging the club trying to keep this item in place without it falling out. Is this correct?
Golf shouldn't be a hard game. Unlike baseball or tennis, the ball doesn't move. Unfortunately, golfers do -- sometimes too much. Many golfers lean away from the ball during their backswing and try to correct it by moving ahead of the ball during the downswing. That leads to another common flaw: golfers jerking their heads up at impact.
