Response to Analogy to What in the Golf Swing?
The child pulling back on the swing chains is essentially a braking action that causes the swing below the brake point to race ahead of the pendulum. In the golf swing it might correspond to the slowing of the hands near impact that allows the clubhead to race and catch up. Even with Blake the angle has to be released somewhat. I can't think of a way to consciously brake the hands though. But I'm working on it. They do slow considerably just because gravity stops being an aid and becomes a hindrance and because the conformation of the body presents problems in the impact area..
