There Are No Arms in the Downswing
That's it. That's the key--take the arms out of the downswing and you'll be fine. Drag the club back with relaxed hands and arms a little to the outside, then feel the right elbow land in the right hip, unwind quickly while firing the right leg and watch with delight as the ball soars far and true. Easy game, huh? A word of caution, though: the shank is the cousin to the fade so be careful when trying to swing this way. A lack of commitment will most-definitely produce the dreaded hosel rocket, so as Lee Trevino once said "Aim left, swing right, and walk straight ahead."
I live in Minnesota with my wife and two daughters. I play golf to about a six handicap, as long as my putter is cooperating. When I'm not playing golf or hanging out with my wife and kids, I work at a brewery and dream about playing golf or being with my wife and kids.
