The so called modern golf fundamentals - grip, stance, ball position, alignment, posture - whilst important aspects of golf, are not golf fundamentals


"At the moment of impact the hands work not together but against each other. The left hand must bear back against the right. Immediately prior to and during the moment of the club's contact with the ball, the right hand speeds up the club head. It cannot do this if the left hand fails to offer a backward resistance against the upper end of the club handle. This back pressure of the left hand must be exerted at the moment of impact." Original Golf Fundamentals, Dunns of Musselburgh, Scotland

"If the right shoulder comes underneath, the right hand hits really hard, and the left hand resists it, and holds the clubhead square a fraction longer. So you must hit the ball straight. To my mind the follow through looks after itself, and is no longer important, except for photographers." Dave Thomas

"To prevent the club handle from going through before the clubhead, great resistance must be set up in the left side of the body against whirling it around to the left, or there will be nothing to support the left hand, and therefore no transmission of power. This resistance - "hitting against the left" - starts in the left foot, so be sure to keep a firm grip on the ground with that foot. At the instant of impact the muscles of the left side should have a feeling of firmness all the way from the foot up to the shoulder and from the shoulder down to the hand. This is to support the hand so it can function as a fulcrum." Original Golf Fundamentals, Dunns of Musselburgh, Scotland
