Video Golf Tip | Left Arm Connection

Let me get to one of the really important fundamentals out of the things that we teach at our golf schools. It is left arm connection. What I am talking about is how your left arm connects to the upper part of the left side of your body going into impact and past impact, right here. This motion right here where you are connected. What happens to a lot of golfers is that they will disconnect, the arm comes off, it slides, it buckles up, you get a gap underneath the armpit. Of all the great players I have spent time with and played with they all agree that this is an important idea. Sam Snead talked to me about this in length about his swing. How he wanted this left arm connected. Nothing under the left arm. That is something I look at very carefully with all the people that come to our golf school. When I watch them come into impact I see if I can see any kind of air under the armpit. I see if they are connected and then this move right here, as things work together, the left shoulder, the left arm, work together through impact. That is something I see in all the great ball strikers. Left arm connection.

Ball Above Your Feet Adjust your posture to compensate for the slope
Five Minute Slice Cure Slicers often play the ball too forward and have their shoulders open to the target line, fix this by setting a tee behind and slightly behind the ball and setting your torso and head towards the tee
Cure For Push Shots: Poor Release Hanging back at impact restricts your follow through and leads to a push shot
