This is a fun golf tip, but what does that mean…to stay connected? It basically means that your arms won’t outrace your body. I am a big believer in making a backswing in which the arms and the body travel at the same speed and at the same time. This means that when the shoulders stop turning on the backswing, then the arms stops moving as well.
Many players let their arms continue moving trying to reach their hands and club over their shoulder and pointing at the target. This is not necessary for power and accuracy. In fact, getting to that position with just your arms will lead to a loss of power and consistency, because your club will get off line without the support of your shoulders and body turn.
Another way to think about it is that we don’t want to let air into our armpits. It is a very hard thing to feel unless you work on it in a drill. So the irony is that a restrictive suit will help your game by keeping you connected.
There are several different drills out there that will help get this feeling. However, I like to provide tips that you can work on from the comfort of your home or office. That way you can practice everyday, even if you don’t have time to get to the range.
This drill is so simple because it is about getting a feeling for how your arms should stay with your body. It is virtually impossible for your arms to continue once your shoulders stop turning. Don't be surprised if your swing feels a little shorter than normal.
