ORIGINAL GOLF FUNDAMENTAL 9

"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


Ronald Ross DUNNS' F12 SNAP IT THRU AT IMPACT MUST BEAR BACK

"As the left arm has about completed its downward pull, the reaction of its sidewise drag comes into play just before the left wrist begins its downward striking action. Now the left forearm absorbs the arm drag by twisting to the right so that the club head still drags behind. Now all these actions and reactions come to a culmination in a terrific snap on the ball." Seymour Dunn

"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

"Golf is a two-handed game with the right hand dominating. It is not a bad idea to imagine the left hand working back from the target; to visualize the hands, wrists, and arms as scissors. When you come to hit the ball, that left may play various pranks. If it is not strong enough it will give way before the powerful right. The right hand will have nothing to snap over, and a pushed shot with no crispness will result. Or worse still, the ball will sail away to the right as the left arm buckles up." R. A. Whitcombe

"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
