Hi, I'm Brandon Tourville, golf instruction here at the Niber Wood Golf Tech in Tualatin, Oregon. So today we're going to talk about the right arm and how it works through the golf swing. Now obviously as I've said before, everybody's swing is just a little bit different. To give you an example of this, we'll give you Tiger Woods. Tiger Woods turns his body faster than you know, so many people out there on the tour. He has to actually engage his arms much more than the average tour player, whereas the average amateur engages their arm far too much and turns their body far too little so really for most people I think the golf swing is such that the right arm really takes almost a secondary role to the rest of the things that are going on in the golf swing. As far as the body rotation as you know, turn back. We've talked about how the shoulders rotate and get the arms here in a good position. The right arm does break down here at the top position, really just supporting role here and as we start engaging the lower body and the upper body here in the rotation again the right arm really doesn't do very much. It does initiate here in the release as we rotate through, coming through and then in through up to your good finish. But I'd say for the most of the swing, the right arm really has a tendency to play a backseat role to what the body is doing and the body really drives the swing versus the arms.
