All too often, "delay" or not turning the "RIB-CAGE" puts an unnecessary strain on the golfers' body! ...Actually, Rib-Cage Coil is an essential part of the Backswing but often overlooked and generally not discussed in Golf Instruction.
This is very unfortunate because the Rib-Cage is the variable that provides the major connective rotation leading to a full and complete Backswing! In fact, no matter your degree of flexibility or raw muscle "no one" can reach power potential without use of this variable!
In short, our Rib-Cage MUST TURN in order to achieve full natural power; and never again suffer Shoulder, Upper Back or Tiger-Like "Neck Strain".
**Next visit to the Range do your swing a favor and activate the rotary process of the Rib-Cage "voluntarily!" You will be surprised and delighted to discover how easily your natural swing can achieve a true "Full Turn" for Maximum Power!
-- In fact: NO VARIABLE IN GOLF CAN DELIVER AS MUCH POSITIVE PUNCH!
This may well explain how the "Short Skinny High School Kid" can hit the ball so far!
(Perhaps, another "Bantam Ben" in the making!)
SPECIAL FACTS: --Anatomically, the Thoracic Spine Carries Minimal Rotary Capacity. As such, it's the complementary turning of the Shoulder Girdles, Rib-Cage & Hips that does the trick in getting the job done in the Backswing!
Believe it or not, this formidable "GOLF TRINITY" is likely the biggest "Secret" In The Game and provides reason why we all must rely on the Turning Action of our Rib-Cage for "Maximum Swing Potential" and true Natural Power! - In short, "all of us" have the natural "right stuff" and with Healthy Golf showing the way, "all of us" can derive more power and enjoy the game more than ever!
As the Home Run Great "RALPH KINER" said to me many years ago: "Where were you 30 years ago!"
**Be certain to enjoy our Healthy Golf DVD #1 -- "Understanding Swing Rotation!" -- and carefully check the Turning Takeaway of the Rib-Cage in all our Major Champions. This variable has been around forever but sometimes it's hard to appreciate causative action when we are inside the bubble. -- For example, think how long the "Earth" was perceived to be "flat" when it was round and turning @ 1,000 MPH all the time!
--"So much to learn; so little time." ...DrDom
See Images Of "Back Pec" Below -- KEY # 4 -- See GOLF WINDOW "STOP ACTION" At "STOP" 3 & 4.
This "STRETCH VARIABLE" sits behind the Pectoral Major that allows the Chest Room for the Backswing to establish an "INSIDE LINE" for Forward Parallel Flow through !he ball!
** A Major New Hidden Variable In Golf!
The "3rd" is natural to the backswing and relatively simple to observe:
The Lead Shoulder & Upper Arm "ROLL IN TOWARD THE BODY"
As The Takeaway Proceeds Past The Back Hip.
The "4th Rotation" (HOGAN's BACK FOREARM "TWIST") -- is not at all obvious --
but initiates a "Catalytic Combination" of UPPER BODY SQUARING VARIABLES
that serve the function of producing "STRAIGHT SHOTS -&- SLICE FREE GOLF!"
** THIS "SEMI-PRONATION or "REVERSE ROLL" Of The BACK FOREARM
traces to Mr. Hogan's Back Hand Grip Diagonal & Is A Critical Part Of The
SWING "SECRET" or HIDDEN MECHANICS In GOLF!
Clearly, tracing this critical mechanic took serious time, but teachers
and players will much enjoy confirming this key catalyst in the swing!
IT BRINGS US TO A NEW LEVEL OF SWING INSIGHT & PERFORMANCE!
NOTE ADJACENT PHOTO / Especially "45 Convergence" @ TOS!
Also See FIVE LESSONS -- Page 97 & 98.
Research indicates that when a swing includes the
REVERSE FOREARM SQUARING ROTATION"
performance works like a charm and slicing disappears!
1. The back and forward swing planes repeat successfully;
2. The hands need "NOT" turn over at impact; and
3. BALLS FLY CONSISTENTLY STRAIGHT!
-- CONVERSELY --
If the Forearm Reverse is "not" present or late in occurring,
results shape like a mixed bag of unforced errors involving
issues too difficult to overcome at impact!
"45 CONVERGENCE" At TOS Is Highly Unlikely
With Slice-Free Performance "PROBLEMATIC!"
Of course, Mr. Hogan well knew technical "squaring mechanics"
and included the "3rd & 4th" ROTATIONS as natural extensions
of his "GRIP" -&- SWING TRIANGLE AT ADDRESS!
--- KINDLY OBSERVE ---
With HOGAN's "TWIST" HELPING THE BACKSWING
Golfers Can Easily Turn & Deliver The Club
SQUARE THROUGH IMPACT To A Natural
"SKY HIGH LIBERTY FINISH"
TIME & TIME AGAIN!

"BY THE WAY" -- RESEARCH CONFIRMS:
It is also Hogan's "TWIST"
that brings the club to
at the Top Of Swing!

Healthy Golf Research provides clear vision of
TRUE MASTER KEYS IN GOLF!
In retrospect, Mr. Hogan was correct in his
Letter Dated May 12, 1992:
"I am sure it will be quite successful."
May I say:
Healthy Golf Is Successful Only Because
IT'S ALWAYS BEEN GUIDED BY "HOGAN EYES"
THAT ALREADY HAD
THE SCIENCE TO SEE!
Clearly, all findings reported on this website
are dedicated to the memory of Mr. Hogan:
A "Player/Scientist" of the first rank
CHAMPION WHO PIONEERED
SWING SCIENCE AT ITS
ANATOMICAL CORE ROOT!
( See Five Lessons, Pages 109 -- 110 )
Research confirms it wise to use Mr. Hogan's
SWING MARQUIS ™
KEYSTONE MODEL ADDRESS
For Slice-Free Golf!
From this position and using the "45 Secret" in Mr. Hogan's Grip,
it is "natural" for the Back Forearm to
"REVERSE ROLL" and "CONVERT"
into the MAJOR "45" DIAGONAL featured here.

DrDom's "KEY COMBINATION" For SQUARE IMPACT
As the Takeaway passes the back hip both hands and wrists
"FLAP BACK & HINGE UP".
In response, the Back Forearm Semi-Pronates 45!
**Research suggests it is this combination of connective mechanics
that helps square the club for impact!
Of course, this is greatly facilitated by the
Of Backside Posture @ Address!
"45" is found everywhere in golf and is th Key "Grip Diagonal Angle" For
RELIABLE SWING PERFORMANCE!
