Connecting Trail Arm to Pivot

The movements of the trail arm and pivot are interconnected and in high level golfers, will be compatible. Unfortunately, I will often see players train their pivot or trail arm without accounting for this relationship. As the length of the club is going to remain relatively fixed, we must account for the changes between the body and club as we rotate and side-bend through impact at various degrees.

To put it simply, players that want to be more rotated or open at impact, will require more of a bend in their trail arm. On the other hand, players that are less rotated or more square at impact, will want more extension in the trail arm. Regardless of the swing style you choose, be sure to remember this relationship when training either your pivot or trail arm mechanics.
