VIVIEN SAUNDERS SAYS:
"SOME PARTICULAR SECRET...
HITTING HARD WITH
THE RIGHT HAND"

Download : "If the professional shows any reluctance whatsoever at providing information about the exact movements involved, the pupil usually feels he is being fobbed off when he is told that everything will fall into place if he concentrates on the points the professional puts forward. The pupil is likely to think either that the teacher lacks certain information or even that he is trying to withhold some particular secret about success at the game." and, "The key to the downswing and attack is therefore to keep the left arm in control, to push the weight back on to the left heel and to attack the ball from the inside, hitting hard with the right hand to square up the club face at impact." 'THE GOLFING MIND' VIVIEN SAUNDERS '... a minor masterpiece and should be available free on the National Health Service because it offers a cure for the insanity which afflicts all golfers.'

THE LEFT HAND RESISTS THE HIT OF THE RIGHT HAND HENRY COTTON 1951

Download : "It is all very well to say 'sweep the ball away'. But no golf ball was ever sent a long way without some sort of resistance creeping into the swing - without hitting past the body and allowing the clubhead to overtake the hands... Now what sort of resistance can be found? I have played with the maximum amount of hands and arms in my swing all my life, ..." HENRY COTTON My Golfing Album Country Life Limited London Published in 1959

"Curiously enough, if pressed to say something, it will often be (I have got this answer from many professionals), "My longest balls are when I feel I've got my wrists into it." This misleads the tyro terribly, although it is true." Sir Walter Simpson


FRED DALY SAYS:
"ONE SPRING MORNING I MADE A DISCOVERY -
AN IMPORTANT DISCOVERY"

Download : "And then one spring morning I made a discovery - an important discovery... That night the back of my left hand and the wrist were so painful that they kept me awake. The loss of sleep did not worry me. The pain showed that the muscles were relatively weak. And I had come upon the source of power at golf.

"LEFT WRIST,
HELD FIRMLY IN ITS PLACE, ACTS AS A STOPPING POINT TO PRODUCE THE "SNAP"..."

Download : "You may have the feeling that you are swinging both arms together on the down stroke, but the hit must come from the power of the right as the left wrist, held firmly in its place, acts as a stopping point to produce the "snap" or the "crack" that should follow. It is here that the left wrist momentarily is stopped." Which Is the Hitting Arm in Golf?

"It is known as timing, and the best definition I know of is a co-ordination of mind and muscle, which enables the player to do exactly the right thing at the right moment. I know, when I hit the ball, that this flick of the wrist occurs as my hands are a few inches behind the ball, but because it is an unconscious effort I cannot tell you where it should be applied, so you must find your own rhythm." Henry Cotton

what I would term "the speed sector of the swing." This is produced by the right hand striking forward while the left hand resists backward.

HARRY VARDON SAYS:
"SOME PECULIAR KIND OF "SNAP"

Download : 'THE WAY TO GOLF' "I have heard it stated on very good authority that when Mr. Balfour first began to play he submitted himself to very much the same process of tuition as that which I am about to advise, and that under the guidance of Tom Dunn" ; "indeed, the position of the body, legs, arms, head, and every other detail is, or ought to be, exactly the same when the ball is being struck as they were when it was addressed" and "Similarly there is a kind of superstition that the elect among drivers get in some peculiar kind of "snap" - a momentary forward pushing movement - with their wrists at the time of impact" Chapter III, Balfour, Mr. A. J., how he learned golf, 30; By Harry Vardon THE COMPLETE GOLFER OPEN CHAMPION 1896, 1898, 1899, 1903, AMERICAN CHAMPION, 1900 With Sixty-Six Illustrations Sixth Edition Methuen & Co. 36 Essex Street W.C.

"I told you that when playing the driver you should cultivate a snap of the wrists as you hit the ball. Avoid that with the brassie and spoon when you are trying to "pick up" a ball. Only a few very good players can do that, and if you try at present you will probably top the ball. Be content with your ordinary swing, and avoid attempting to get too much distance at first." Henry Cotton

"Whether the hands overlap or not, the thumbs and forefingers must be placed so as to shape into V's. It is with these two members that we want to grip tightest. He has been enjoined so often to "sweep" it off the tee or the fairway that he thinks he cannot do better than describe a sort of semicircle with the club-head. The idea of the sweeping action is very well, but the golf swing is not a sweep pure and simple. It is partly a hit. It is the knack that introduces the sweeping action with power behind it." Harry Vardon

Born to ride, she achieved recognition as a world-class polo player, the only woman to compete regularly with men. The Scottish pro Willie Dunn tutored her in golf, and by 1921, at age 29, she won the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship. Strong-bodied with a powerful swing, she could whale the ball 250 yards. The press dubbed her the female Bobby Jones." GOLF' S FINEST PAR THREES The Art & Science of the One-Shot Hole The Coast of Northern California, 1926.
