Training Trail Arm Connection

Golfers who are prone to hitting pull draws or the occasional snap hook typically struggle with maintaining their body to trail arm "connection". Or in other words, instead of allowing for the rotation of the body to help square the club face, they end up overusing the action of the trail arm and shoulder. This can lead to face/path issues and create an excess of sidespin. If this sounds familiar, you can simply place a glove underneath your trail shoulder as you hit shots on the range, while making sure to maintain the connection between your upper arm and torso, specifically from the 9-to-3 position. At first, this may feel a bit constricted and even weak, but with practice you should start to feel how an athletic turn of the body can create a more passive arm action. This will ultimately mitigate any large curvatures of the golf ball and lead to greater consistency.
