Logansport Plione L'1924 It is hard to tell anybody how they should feel when they are making a correct solf swing. But maybe you can get the idea when I tell you that every time I know I really am smacking the hall I feel as though my hands were just as far away from my shoulders as I can get them. That means you feel as though you are almost trying to poke the clubhead away from you when you are at the top of your backswing. Now. when 1 try to get this thought across, there will be plenty of fellows who will stretch out and reach for the | ball in the address, and blame it ; onto something they read that I I said. The idea isn't to feel as j though the hands were being held j as far as possible from the body— ! but from the shoulders. As. a mat- j ter of fact, there is a comfortable ! feeling.that the hands, in the ad- j dress and during the bottom -third ! of tlie swing, are in fairly close to I the body. ; (Copyright 194?..
