Hands working backwards

Was reading to The Feelings of Greatness about Moe Norman and what jumped out at me was “Me, Ben Hogan and Arnold Palmer are the only golfers whos hands work backwards through a golf ball” “as the arms moved forward to impact, the hands lagged behind with the left wrist flat and the right wrist bent”

Reminded me of this image from 5 lessons.

What is interesting here is that it is physically impossible to do the module 7 drill without doing this.


I find left forearm rotation is key for me to create this feeling.

The left shoulder outracing the hands at impact.

I remember reading 5 lessons for the first time and seeing that drawing and thinking how does that go with the 3 right hands?? In the module 7 drill you are forced to use the legs to move the shoulder to do this.
