This golf tip was largely forgotten because the role of the arms and hitting the ball hard with the dominant arm have been swept aside in modern golf instruction. Modern golf instruction focuses on the body-swing – free flowing arms that seemingly do nothing in the golf swing. There is nothing wrong with using the body to swing – in fact, I am a proponent of using the big muscles to hit the golf ball. The arms, are a big source of power and shouldn’t be neglected. Ben Hogan makes it very clear in this golf tip that you have to put yourself in a good position to HIT THE BALL HARD on the downswing.

I am Tom Saguto, PGA Member and founder of SagutoGolf. Thank you for visiting my instructional page where you can find how to get on the fast track to improving your golfing abilities. Whether you are a seasoned golfing veteran looking for a quick swing tune-up after an on-course emergency, or a beginner just looking to get the most out of your golfing experience, I am here to help you achieve your golfing goals.
My mission as your swing doctor is simple, to help you maximize your enjoyment in game of golf. Because, let’s face it, golf is a hard game.
My philosophy is wholly based on the student having a fun, meaningful experience in a frustrating and complicated game where potential lifelong golfers either quit because it is too difficult or that they experience some form of swing-related pain or discomfort. I mitigate these problems by focusing entirely on the student’s needs and goals while teaching a golf swing method that ultimately takes stress off of the common pain areas of the swing.
