THE MODERN ORIGINAL GOLF FUNDAMENTALS

AWAKEN THE HANDS

"A Terrific Snap" Seymour Dunn

"It has been said that the power which drives a golf ball is centrifugal force. It is not centrifugal force. The ideal swing is a moderate arm and shoulder sweep plus a terrific wrist snap. A player of very powerful physique is better off with a short swing.

The majority of players who fail in transmission of power do so because their left hands fails to act as a fulcrum for the right hand to strike against. The left hand must bear back against the right.

This back pressure of the left hand must be exerted at the moment of impact if you are to overcome the resistance of the ball. Use your hands i.e. prevent leverage collapse."

"I Wish I Had Three Hands" Ben Hogan

"I don't think the fundamentals will ever change. As far as applying power goes, I wish that I had three right hands! On a full shot you want to hit the ball as hard as you can with your right hand. But this is only half the story.

If you hit hard with only the right and let the left go to sleep, you will not only lose much valuable power, you will also run into all the errors that result when the right hand overpowers the left.

The average golfer's problem is not so much a lack of ability as it is a lack of knowing what he should do. The left is a power hand too."

"A Sort Of Left Hand Against The Right"
Sir Henry Cotton

"When I studied Bobby Jones's swing I found that his hand action was particularly slack and loose.

Yet, when people asked him about it, he said there was a buffer action in the swing. He was aware there was a shock at impact. He realized that the ball was 'shocked' off the club and that he had to absorb it.

He wrote about this, but I do not think that many understood what he meant. In other words, there was in his swing a sort of left hand against the right, a resistance to the right somewhere, and I think people overlooked that, and still do.

Now, when a lot of players today write on the game, they ignore it too.

They have been hitting balls for so many years that they do not realize that there is a point in the swing when you have to absorb the shock, to take it in your hands."
