Research Confirms Traditional Instruction does not discuss Takeaway “Inversion;” Golf Trinity; or the "Catalyst-Couplet" leaving these natural hidden mechanics to "Live Tensions" in the muscles set at Swing Address!
Certainly, Mr. Hogan & Nicklaus knew that when organized “correctly” the "Inside Arm Muscles" would automate proper Back Arm Fold & Shoulder Mechanics for proper Transition to the Downswing. -- But, to this day, Catalytic Action in the Takeaway "&" Back Shoulder "Re-Alignment" for consistent square impact has never been accurately detailed by anyone.
Hence, erroneous comparison relative to Golf & Baseball is often voiced, as is a plethora of Swing Aides promoted to teach correct mechanics.
However, to my knowledge: Natural Connective "Micro-Mechanics" needed for consistent good golf have never been detailed, not even by notables in of the game.
Such as it is, the goal of consistent quality play may never be achieved via a "1 Piece Takeaway" because "Hidden" Back Arm/Shoulder Mechanics -- so vital to swing success -- trigger "silently" when the Hands, Arms & Shoulders perform as they should!
BIG "3" SILENT CONNECTIVE MICRO-MECHANICS:
1. Back Pectoral Stretches;
2. Back Forearm Pronates; and
3. Back Scapula "Re-Aligns" For Smooth Transition &
Square Impact With All Clubs!
Alternate Ways To Achieve All The Above:
1. Inversion Takeaway;
2. Golf Trinity; and
** In explaining the Natural Connective Mechanics in the BIG 3, research indicates that the Back Shoulder Joint does "NOT" rotate “externally” -- as many believe -- but simply “Shifts Laterally" & "Aligns The Shoulders" for a smooth TRANSITION SHIFT/TURN to the PARALLEL INSIDE TRACK (“PIT”) For Reliable Square Impact!
I might add these technical findings are of relatively recent vintage, but go a long way in diagnosing multiple swing issues and explaining "Best Practice" for Reliable Power & Accuracy In Golf.
-- In Short:
If your swing does not achieve the "Parallel Inside Track"
-- Via The Inverted Takeaway; Golf Trinity or Catalyst-Couplet -- it is on the "Outside Track" poised to commit multiple mistakes!
In This Connection ...
Struggling golfers often report the awkward condition of getting “STUCK” in Transition, preventing the free "inside flow" of the Downswing whenever the Back Shoulder Joint Is Rotated “Externally”. So too the "Over The Top" swing can be traced to this same critical error tendency.
Unlike hitting in Baseball, an Open Back Shoulder Joint in golf is a "Blinking Red Light" for all manner of swing mistakes inclusive of:
Pulls, Pushes, Fat & Thin Shots, Hooks, Slices & "Shanks!"
This Fact Gives Us Good Reason To Pause & Consider The
Inverted Takeaway ("IT"); Golf Trinity; & Catalyst-Couplet As A Prime Candidates For The Title Of
“MASTER MECHANICS” IN GOLF.
NOTE: Research Confirms "CC 1- 3" Cannot Be Introduced More Effectively At Alternate Moments In The Swing. ... However, when introduced via the Takeaway: The Job Accomplishes Perfectly!
-- “GENERAL CAUTION” --
Although advocated by some Instructors, “Opening” The Back Shoulder Joint in the Backswing is a natural anatomical "Error-Tendency" that has plagued both Pro & Amateur golfers since the inception of golf!
** Even experienced players fall prey given the logical flow of the Backswing “away” from the body; and desire to expand "width" of swing to find more power.
Nevertheless, opening the clubface is fraught with danger and often a likely "Fatal Mistake!"
As indicated, Opening The Back Shoulder Joint In Baseball May Get You To “1st Base or even a HOME RUN! ...But, In Golf It’s A Blinking “RED LIGHT”
poised to commit all manner of swing mistakes inclusive Of:
Pushes & Pulls; Fat & Thin Shots; Hooks & Slices;
"Whiffs" and The Ever Dreaded “Shanks!”
However, each of the "BIG 3" not only eliminates these errors, but ensures the Perfect 45 Elbow Plane for all shots regardless of club length!
In fact, research suggests teaching the “BIG 3" & "E-Plane" is likely to become Standard Practice In Golf Instruction as handicaps tend to plummet to the benefit of all concerned.
PLEASE TAKE SPECIAL NOTE
Research indicates Ben Hogan achieves Back Arm Inversion as the Takeaway Extends -- “Clubface Down”. … So Does Jack Nicklaus! ===========================================================
Key Organizer In Golf!
Research Confirms The Entire Back Arm/Shoulder System
Must “Re-Align” On The Way To Top of Swing!
** This KEY ORGANIZER is altogether hidden from view but correctly folds the Back Arm to produce "Bi-Axis" Inside Body Coil & Back Shoulder "Re-Alignment" that is needed to achieve the elusive PARALLEL INSIDE TRACK ("PIT") For SQUARE IMPACT!
The fatal error would be to bypass the BIG 3 and
Open the Clubface with the Hands, Wrists & Forearms!
Hence, Be Certain To Learn The New Golf "BIG 3”
Until Your Selection Becomes Second Nature!
Remember, “no one” can see “CC 1, 2 or 3"
-- not even in slow-motion --
but every player can feel and benefit from the hidden "magic"
THEY BRING TO YOUR SWING!
There can be little doubt Mr. Hogan & Mr. Nicklaus
-- Via The Takeaway --
"Triggers" This Key Organizer Needed In Golf!
For each of them, this natural process would explain why their
BIG 3 Choice is not highlighted in any of their books or interviews!
Nevertheless, it would seem to be the "Missing Link" in Instruction that can explain why golfers -- Both Amateur & Pro -- have persistent multiple issues with the swing!
In Short: Absent the Key Organizer, golfers are forced into
compensations resulting in a wide range of typical errors.
Shots "Wide" Of Target; Hooks & Slices; Fat & Thin Shots;
Frequent Loss of Balance & The Dreaded Shanks!
As it appears, Hidden Connective Natural Mechanics in the golf swing
hold the "ANSWER" for excellent play for every golfer!
