A Swing Speed Killer
Updated: Oct 11, 2021
In the golf swing, on average, the hips move at 5mph, the shoulders move 8mph, the hands and arms move 15mph and the clubhead moves at 100mph.
These speeds move everything at the same rpm.
So with this in mind, the idea of having passive arm movement from the top of your swing is incorrect and is a definite speed killer in your golf swing.
Instead, from the top of the golf swing, get the handle end of the club moving as quickly as possible, sending the speed into the clubhead end.
Leaving your arms up will mean you have to catch up at the bottom, but you will not generate as much speed as you don't have as much time.
