    Default Brian's Martin Kaymer golf magazine video - Getting the arms off the chest

    Brian's weekly golf video on golf.com is the best "mass golf instruction" anywhere. Brian, this week's video on Martin Kaymer discusses the movement of the arm off the chest. One question, would the feel change for certain types of faults?
    If someone is too in to out, would the speed of arms compared to the speed of the body turn change feel-wise?

    I have little idea what he is talking about on this one. Your left arm is ON your body at impact, not off it.
    Some say his scrotum emits its own gravity field.

    That is not correct at all Wulsy.

    Surely if it was (well) off your body you would shank/heel it.

    What about the idea of "replacing it".

    What about the idea of swinging "left" or "up" or "in" pre impact.

    It leaves the body in the backswing, so it would have to come back in the downswing.

    You are not trying to max out ulnar deviation at impact.

    How can you tumble if it is (well) off the body.

    How can you supinate (left) if it is (well) off the body.

    How can it move away from the body post impact if it was already off it.

    How did this guy shoot 59?

    As you look at the lead arm from overhead, the lead arm has moved well away from it's top of the backswing orientation to the chest.

    It also move downward quite a bit from the top.

    I think we've maybe been talking about two different orientations here - you about the kind of up-down relationship and me about the out-in relationship.

    I'm talking about both, Wulsy.

    Just another mistake made looking at 2D.

    I was THE KING of teaching the opposite of it BTW.....(I taught arm dragging).

    Any chance of a graphic or a graph to show this?

    Which plane are you talking about when you say "getting it off the chest"?

    I was hoping for an answer on this one. I see some guys (Bubba) have their left arm well of the chest at impact and seem to have it almost on the target side of the left side of the body as well. Is this what you are talking about and do you like to get the impression of swinging the left arm targetwards thro impact?
