< < Back to the 14 Swing Principles


Connection begins at address, and refers to parts of the body in motion, relative to one another. These are primarily the body, arms and hands, and each moves in the same direction as the club, which is in rotation around the swing center. Connection begins at address, and standing the proper distance from the ball (hands hanging straight down). From there, the player is able to maintain a triangle with their shoulders and arms, and elbows stay relatively close to one another throughout the swing. The trunk and legs are the largest producers of power, so the goal is to keep the arms connected to the trunk throughout the swing.
