What is the Correct Right Arm Swing Sequence for a Senior Golfer (Video)

Right, we are going to talk about the right arm and the importance of the right arm and what it should be doing in the golf swings. So it's two parts of the swing, let's talk about the backswing. So you can imagine, there are so many different positions the right arm might want to go into, going out here, elbow flying out, coming around here and so on and so forth. There are so many permutations, so what is the right position for the right arm at the top.

Well, when you get to the top of the backswing, if I got myself into this position and if you looked at my right hand and where my right arm is, it shouldn't be stuck in here, it shouldn't be there. It's a bit like a waiter, imagine a waiter, he comes into the room and he has got a tray of drinks. Look at the position of that hand here and where his arm is. Imagine if his hand was and his arm was here, the tray would now be spilling all the drinks over this way or vice versa. So let's put the club in the hand and try and create that position. There is no way those drinks are coming up and you have got a good idea of where this right arm should be in the backswing. So that stage one taking care of, but what about on the way down through the ball, very, very important. When you come into the hitting area, it's very, very important that this right arm as it goes through has got an extension going through. It is a bit like a criss-cross, so when you come through, this right arm should basically roll over your left arm as you hit the ball. So if I set it up here, let's get into the position. There is a tray of drinks in here, the club comes back down and as I go through, you can see now that my forearm and my club are actually in one line, okay. So again rather than saying about all the permutations of what the right arm shouldn't be doing, let's focus on what it should be doing. So there is the position, the top of the back swing, tray of drinks, very simple. Put a tray in your hand, feel what the position is and recreate that with the golf club in your hand. And as you hit the ball, remember as you come through the right arm, where should it be. It shouldn't be here, it shouldn’t be there, it comes through, a nice extension, the right arm of the shaft all going through together and from that, there is your perfect position for your right arm or the top of your backswing and the right arm through the ball.
