    A few days ago I was striping the ball using this method and then yesterday
    it all went astray because I had forgotten to focus on swinging to an
    elegant finish. Then my whole thought process moved away from any
    mechanics, tried to stay relaxed and just focussed on swinging through to
    target in as elegant a fashion as possible. Started striping it again!!!!!
    Nuts. I am now convinced that you have to stay relaxed enough to allow your
    brain to steer your body . The mechanics mean nothing if you’ve already
    shackled your body, no matter what your intended action.

      +P SMITH You got it…. ‘Elegant/Boneless/’ is the feeling you need for
      this swing, its the only way to keep the club head ‘Orbiting’ around the
      body , and the only way you will get the ‘Elliptic’ shape of the swing ,
      any ‘adding’ to the club head ‘direction destiny’ will kill the ‘Orbiting’
      mechanics, trying to look ‘Elegant’ would help just about every club
      Golfers swing…. mine in particular absolutely.

    Hi JH – regarding chipping and short pitches
    Is it okay to use the ‘flippy’ wrist action while also rotating the
    shoulders and hips a little to get that natural momentum feel of (ie.
    feeling the dynamic weight ) of the clubhead? It feels so much better doing
    the latter with a slight connection of the upper arms to the pecs. If I
    don’t do this , the swing seems to be manipulated using musculature wrist
    action only or one ends up swinging the arms away from the body to get more
    speed (which I suspect is not the Yogi way).

      +P SMITH Absolutely ok to do that, in fact you are correct in saying that
      you ‘need’ to do that to maintain the context of the ‘Yogi Flow’ dynamics,
      that’s a good point and glad you pointed it out, the last thing we ever
      want to do with any facet of the Yogi swing is to inhibit the majestic flow
      of the Golf club.
      cheers JH
