Everytime you visit the Doctor he follows the same simple procedure. Wheather you're dizzy or dazy, hot or cold, tired or wired he goes straight to the heart. He knows everything you do or feel is in some way related to the health and state of your HEART. No matter what the effects of ones illness maybe, a good Doctor knows the cause of such effects is typically the result of something much closer to the heart and more easily diagnosed through an understanding of ones heart.
The same is true in golf, any great teacher will tell you the cause of a swing flaw is always much closer to the heart than the visual effect. The cause of the commonly seen effects of a poor swing such as head movment, loss of balance, closed clubface, club shaft crossing the line at the top etc are always caused by a static issue before the swing has even begun. At the heart of every golf swing is one single element that has the greatest influence over everything that goes on around it.
Find the HEART to locate the CAUSE/REPAIR the CAUSE and you heal the EFFECTS.
GO TO YOUR HANDS AND YOU HAVE FOUND THE HEARTBEAT TO YOUR SWING.
The HEART of your golf swing is totally governed by your HANDS. The quality of the formation between the left and right hand UNITE to produce the HEART of your golf swing. From the quality of the formation between the two hands you set the tone for your bodies resulting reflex actions and instinctive movements commonly seen as effects within the resulting golf swing. I like to see them as compensations of either a positive or negative nature. The more blended ones formation of the hands on the golf club maybe, the more positive ones in swing reflex actions will become. Its when one adopts a less than efficent hold that the resulting in swing movements become compensations for such an unhealthy hold on the golf club.
AN UNHEALTHY HEART CAUSES UNHEALTHY EFFECTS.
The result of a poor heart means years of inconsistent bad health.
So please take the time to develope a healthy hold on the golf club, it really is the HEARtBEAT to your swing.
