Interesting Conversation – 19th Hole

The right place at the right time with four of the right golfers after a productive round! Idle chatter regularly morphs into a meaningful discussion. That is good for us!

One of the key topics was ‘The Lower Body Machine’s (LBM) leading the Upper Body Machine (UBM) in the ‘Front or Down & Out Swing’. The LBM is the ‘Axial Core’. The UBM is the Radial Lever Assemblies … Shoulder Sockets, Upper Arms, Elbows, Forearms, Wrists, Hands and the actual golf club, known as ‘The Secondary Lever’. Now that we have definitions out of the way, let’s get to functionality … meat and potatoes? Lead & Lag are key terms … some component ahead and something behind! (see ‘Turn & Lift’ – useful term pertaining to your ‘Take-Away’!)

In the Down & Out Swing, Front Swing, the Hips (LBM) Lead the Hands (UBM). By the time your ‘Hands Reach The Top Of Back & Up Swing, (TOB – Swing Sequence #5) your Hips have already departed the train station! While your ‘Lever Assemblies’ are going ‘Back & Up, your ‘LBM’ is already going ‘Down & Out’ heading for the ‘Bottom Half Of The Swing Circle’ … ‘Impact & Separation Zone’.

Think about your ‘Lateral Bump’ or ‘Transition’ (little known aspect) … Hips starting forward and down while the ‘UBM’ is going ‘Back & Up’ … still not having reached the TOB. Thus, the ‘Hips are Leading the Lagging Hands and Arms’. (UBM or Lever Assemblies)

The lighter and faster ‘Lever Assemblies (UBM) are accelerating and catching up with the ‘Hips & Core’ from TOB to the ‘Impact & Separation Point at the Bottom Of Swing Arc’! (BOSA – SS #8) During the Chase, Follow & Finish phase (Extension Interval – SS #9) the ‘Hands & Arms (UBM) are just ‘Passing and Leading The LBM’.

What do I feel through the BOSA? … That my hands catch and match my ‘Belt Buckle’ at Swing Sequence #9, while ‘Straightening & Extending’. The Brace Lever Assembly is in the ‘Bent Configuration at TOB’. (see ‘The Primary Articulating Joints 123 -123 Drill’) At SS #9 the bent condition is straightened! The Brace Lever becomes ‘Straight’ while the Target Lever becomes ‘Bent’! Do this ‘Bullet Proof Full Swing Drill’ in slow motion for 10 reps … Bottom (SS #1) to Top (SS #5) to Bottom (SS #8 & #9) to Top (SS #10 or #11 called the Bounce Back Condition – optional)!
