PASSIVE HANDS DRILL
THIS DRILL IS DESIGNED TO HELP FEEL AND UNDERSTAND THE CORRECT ROLE THE HANDS PLAY IN GOOD BALL STRIKING.
Bob McDonald helps you understand the correct role of your hands in good ball striking.
First please understand that the hands are not for hitting with. Their main function is merely to hold on to the club and allow the wrists to act as a free flowing hinge.
03-04: They simply vertically hinge up and down similar to using a Hammer. Think of the Connecting Chain on the martial art Nun Chuc device acting as a free hinge. As this is happening, the Arms swing side to side and the torso responds and rotates in proportion to the Swing length.
01-02: They do NOT turn and/or roll.
