Response to Trail Hand and Forearm Action
I have always done a forward press even when I was doing the conventional swing. It is important to me because it creates some tension inside my trail leg and it helps me to push my hips forward during the takeway.
My students have never reached a low handicap, but the reflex swing has helped them to get rid of their slice and get more distance and consistency.
My legs are acting more like a platform to support my upper body. I feel my legs and hips are doing the first move down and afterward I feel I am hitting as hard as I can with my trail arm and shoulder throughout the impact position. I love watching Lee Trevinos videos because I feel he is hitting as hard as he can with his upper body. His hands are well forward at impact and this is the feeling and position you want to get in order for the hands to be passive. I am not a scientist but my understanding of Blakes pressure theory is having the hands well forward through impact. My best swing feels as I am not releasing my hands angle I created at the top and try to keep it throughout the downswing. This is how I feel that I am putting more pressure to the ball but in theory the club is not staying longer on the ball. The feeling of having the trail arm more across the body at impact comes from having kept the trail hand angle unchanged as long as you could.
