Arm Extension - Timing And Direction

During the downswing, your goal is to build speed in your hands and then transfer that speed to the club head. This process involves a team approach of the body and the arms. When it comes to the arms, there are two general issues that can show up.  One is the timing of when the arms fire (almost always too soon) and the second is the direction (or the positions of the arms). For a full swing, the arms should work more across the body than down toward the golf ball. If they work more down toward the golf ball, then it will be almost impossible for your body to rotate and side bend as much as you would like.
