"The ball starts out to the right usually at a very sharp angle rising at a normal height and continues to curve to the right. CAUSE: The left hand is failing in its function as a fulcrum against which the right hand strikes. 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. At the moment of impact the hands work not together but against each other." ORIGINAL GOLF FUNDAMENTALS, Musselburgh, Scotland, 1897, 1907, 1922, 1930 and 1934

HOW TO CURVE
BALL SHARPLY
TO THE RIGHT

Download : "To curve a ball sharply to the right to circumvent a tree or other obstacle, aim to left and swing the club in a course across the line of play swinging club down outside line of play cutting across to inside line of play. At impact club face must be at "offset" facing somewhat to the right by having club handle somewhat ahead of the club head." By The Dunns of Musselburgh, East Lothian, Scotland

"If the hands are in advance of the club head at the instant of contact with the ball, a slice is sure to come off and the reverse, if the club head meets the ball ahead of the hands, a pull will result." Jerome D. Travers


HOW TO CURE
THE SLICE


Download : "Slicers should learn to get the club head through on time with the handle. In this way the slice will be cured and distance gained instead of lost." By The Dunns of Musselburgh, East Lothian, Scotland

Includes basic golf rules, customs, and courtesy as well as the easy way to a good swing. "At the moment of impact the left shoulder, the left arm, the hands, and the club shaft form one straight line." Publishers GROSSET & DUNLAP, INC. New York IO N. Y. Copyright 1955 TROPHY PRODUCTS



Download : "the hands in a way really work in opposition to each other at the crucial moment, the moment that counts, that of impact between the club-head and the ball, the left arm stopping at the wrist for an infinitesimal fraction of a second as the ball is struck, accelerating the speed of the clubhead. This momentary stoppage is not discernible to the eye, but it exists just the same."

"Always bear in mind that the wrists act as hinges which join the hands and arms. Thus, the natural outward pull of the clubhead will cause them to bend as the speed of the clubhead builds up to its maximum at impact. This is truest of the real golf swinging action, and it is independent of any conscious effort to put "wrist snap" into the stroke. The wrists are responsive to motion. They never initiate the swinging action. Their action, like the rest of the body, must be entirely responsive to the main purpose of making the clubhead move with a swinging action; through the medium of the hands. " Ernest Jones
