Five Mechanical Laws Summary Of The Mechanics Of The Golf Swing

For accuracy in the swing, observe the following geometrical principles

"To strike always with the center of the club face, observe Fundamentals 1, 2, and 3.

To strike always with the club face travelling in right direction, observe Fundamental 4, with HENRY COTTON

To strike always with the club face at right angles to line of play, observe Fundamental 5.

These Five Mechanical Laws give a working theory that is complete in so far as the order of your movements is concerned, as they cover every possible error of the swing that would cause inaccuracy of impact and thereby faulty direction.

Therefore, no matter what the inaccuracy might be, a perfectly clear, sound and logical reason can be found and a remedy applied.

Of course there are an endless number of minor causes that upset each of these Fundamentals, but the first thing to determine always is which Fundamental was violated. It is then a comparatively easy matter to trace out the minor cause.

These Fundamentals are the foundation of every stroke in the game no matter what the style of the player may be and they cannot be violated in the slightest degree with impunity.

If you are not hitting your ball true and sending it straight, one or more of these Five Fundamentals have gone wrong. Find out which and correct it."
