Hi Dariusz,

I am a golf professional in the US. I have read most all of your info on the Web about the biokinetic golf swing and it's been very enlightening to me. It makes total sense that the more we know about how physics and anatomy interact with one another and either positively or negatively effect the motion we use in the golf swing the better teachers and players we all will become.

I used to play competitively, but that's been years ago and is well behind me, now I teach the game. I don't play much anymore, not even recreationally, but I still enjoy hitting balls and working on my own game.
I was a pretty decent player at one time so my golf swing is pretty sound and I do a lot of things well.

But I'd like to get your opinion about something that has been quite puzzling to me for the past few months regarding my own swing. I have not been able to figure it out, on my own or with help from any of my peers.

After impact I expect to get the clubshaft into a straight line extension with my rear arm and be able to sustain that line of extension beyond impact and into the swing as far as Mr. Hogan did. I can achieve this straight line after impact to almost waist high, but just before that point my straight line position goes away and abruptly turns into a right angle, my hands/wrists just all of a sudden flip the clubshaft up toward the sky, on-plane but flipped nonetheless. Am I crazy to think I should be able to do this?

I've thought that it might be that something is stopping and forcing my abrupt flip post-impact release, that perhaps my lead hip was not clearing quickly enough or the lead shoulder was not clearing quickly enough, but after addressing both, as well as many other "ideas", nothing has had any significant effect on my "breakdown"in the finish.

The only way I have found to be able to sustain the rear arm and clubshaft extension longer into the finish is to over control the hands, arms (elbows) so that I feel like I'm in a stiff-armed position which allows me to "carry" my arm entension into the follow through. I assume my inability to sustain my extension is due to some biokinetic breakdown somewhere in the "chain of events" of my swing?

I'd certainly appreciate any thoughts you'd be willing to share.

Thank you,
Steve

Hi Steve, and warm welcome to our small community.

First of all, while being honoured every time a golfer of your caliber posts here, I must warn you that I am dealing only with macroscale, therefore, my answers might not be useful at all.

Now, tryiong to answer your question honestly, we need to define well the phenomenon that you are aware of and want to get rid of it. You said "flipping" which is a very overused notion. Do you mean your forearms crossover to soon after impact or your wrist flex too soon after impact ? How does your clubface behave after impact -- does it remain square to the arc or is fast closed ? Is your rear arm bent in the impact zone with real elbow joint close to your rear hip or straigthish and thrown in front of the body ? Is your shoulder girdle open at separation ?

Although we will eb able to say more having heard your answers, I am almost certain you have spotted the cause well, which is no odd taking into account the extensive knowledge and experience you surely have, i.e. some pivot fault. Pivot governs everything since one of the very basic physic rule is that bigger mass cafects smaller mass.

Cheers

Hi Dariusz,

Thank you very much for the quick reply and your willingness to help, much appreciated and I'm looking forward to our exchange.

Give me a little time to consider your questions, they have already given me some direction in my quest. I'll get back with you as soon as I have some answers, or some more questions, for you. Thanks again for your help.

Best,
Steve
