When you use the left shoulder to start the swing,
00:06
it creates a centering, it creates a radius,
00:09
it creates a plane, and it creates torque in your back,
00:12
which helps you to unwind.
00:14
It does the all the important things in a golf swing
00:17
with just one motion,
00:18
which is starting with the left shoulder.
00:21
And because the left shoulder starts before the lower body,
00:23
you also get a windup on the upper left side of the back,
00:26
which inserts into the hip and gives you an impetus
00:29
or a motivation to unwind that part,
00:33
and the hip will move.
00:35
I came up with starting the swing with the left shoulder
00:37
50 years ago, and that move is still in vogue today.
00:40
Every great player does it.
