CONNECTION IN THE GOLF SWING
We often hear the term "connection" with regards to the golf swing. So- what does connection truly mean?
In mainstream golf instruction the term "connection' highlights the necessity to connect the arms to the body. We see all types of drills relating to placing towels under the arms and swinging in an attempt to keep the arms connected to the body. Other variations of this would be placing a headcover or a glove under either the left or right armpit and swinging the club trying to keep this item in place without it falling out.
Is this correct? Well in some regards YES- but the reality is connection of the arms to the body is only relevent or necessary for a short time in the entire motion. I phrase the real term as "cohesive tension"- it is a more relevent use of words than 'connection' and involves the entire body- from the feet through the legs into the hips and core and trunk- up to the shoulders down the arms and into the hands and fingers- which are holding the club

In approximately two years Jordan Spieth has gone from a World Ranking of 803 to the 4th ranked player in golf.
He is undoubtably the Hottest Player on the Planet right now. He disintegrated the field in The Australian Open and the Chevron World Challenge at the end of 2014.
In recent weeks has won the Valspar Championship, finished runner-up at The Valero Texas Open and now takes a one stroke lead into tomorrows final round of The Shell Houston Open. A terrific lead up for a confident assault on Augusta National at The Masters, where last year he finished runner-up to Bubba Watson in his maiden appearance in the event as a professional.
