"I always call in, when in New York, to see Ernest. I had only a brief chat with him on a recent occasion. Whilst Ernest laughs at the thought of the lever and buffer action being present in the swing I am satisfied it exists.

"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.
