Thrower's Catch - Trail Hand Lag Drill

The throwers catch is a move that I use to describe the right arm closing into the body during transition. The golf swing has a very similar timing to throwing as well as a similar sequence of movements. In throwing, there is a natural tendency to let the trail wrist extend as you step into the throw. Practice doing the throwers catch in golf posture and get the feeling of the left shoulder lag at the same time. This is a dynamic way to train the chunking of the sequencing during transition that creates effortless power. I have had a few students practice this movement and say that they started to get compliments on their swing right away. This movement gives the appearance of good tempo and smooth power.
