If using this method, the right arm becomes extremely responsible for the accuracy of the direction of the strike.

A better way in my opinion is that the rotation of the torso takes over that responsibility. One could think of a door closing on it's hinges and striking the door frame with reliable and consisted contact. It's a thoughtless process that doesn't need much maintenance.

Taking the right arm out of the equation does wonders for accuracy once mastered. Hogan, Trevino, Faldo, Knudson are all prime examples of great strikers who also came to this conclusion.


Hinges being the pivot-- Upper hinge, Middle Hinge, Lower Hinge... I bet this would be a great addition to "What do you see?"

Makes you really think where the hinge of the door is in relation to the location of the ball and what one needs to do with the torso before impact to square it up.
