Figure 11 also illustrates two mistakes commonly made by the average golfer.
In the first place, this player has lost the tension up the left side by means of which the power of the hip-turn should have been communicated to the club. Because there is slack between his left hip and his hands, he must rely now solely upon his arms, hands and shoulders.

Notice, too, the location of the right elbow and compare with Figure 11-1. The movement in Figure 11-2 has been toward the player’s front, accompanied by a premature turning of the shoulders. By this the swing has been forced to the outside whence it cannot fail to cut across the line of intended flight.
