BEST GOLF SHOTS: CONDUCT THE ARMS LIFT TEST

best golf shots

In order to hit the best golf shots of your life, you should conduct the Arms Lift Test™ at the completion of your setup routine.

The reason it is necessary to conduct the Arms Lift Test™ at the completion of your setup routine in order to hit the best golf shots of your life is that the test determines whether you have locked-in a square club face alignment at such point.

If the Arms Lift Test™ confirms you have locked-in a square club face alignment, all that remains to hit a golf ball straight-as-an-arrow is to conclude your setup proceedings.

That is , you should then assume a comfortable stance to your ball, center the sweet spot of your club face as near as possible to the back of your ball, align your shoulders parallel with your target line, keep your left heel planted, your head steady and execute a balanced golf swing.

The Arms Lift Test™ is easy to conduct. Here are the simple steps :

STEP 1: At the completion of your set-up routine, sole your club face on the surface, whether on the turf or a practice mat.

STEP 2: Lock your knee joints and, while keeping your shoulders stable and your club face grounded, raise your arms upward.

If the club face does not rotate clockwise or counterclockwise as you raise your arms upward while keeping your knee joints locked, your shoulders stabilized and your club face grounded, it will indicate that you have locked-in a square club face alignment.

On the other hand, if the club face rotates clockwise or counterclockwise while raising your arms in such a manner, it will indicate you have not locked-in a square club face alignment.

Incidentally, when you lock-in a square club face during your pre-swing proceedings you correspondingly will lock-in an on line path of your club face.

Once locked-in, if you then assume a comfortable stance to your ball, center the sweet spot of your club face as near as possible to the back of your ball, align your shoulders parallel with your target, keep your left heel planted, your head steady and execute a balanced golf swing,  your down swing will deliver a square club face to your ball at impact on a path that matches your target line and your ball will fly on a straight path to your target, discounting wind conditions and elevation differences between your stance and your ball.
