Birdman is not off according to a book which i have read recently...
the book is titled "The Scientific Truth of the Golf Swing". the author Steen Winther has an interesting analogy. i will try to condense..
the only moving parts of a propeller airplane is the plane and the propeller. we know that the propeller has a great amount of rotational energy and this energy propels the plane. however the propeller while its moving is not the source of engine.
the source of energy is from the engine and is transmitted via the drive shaft through the propeller and to the air.
From a scientific point of view, the author likens this is exactly what takes place in the golf swing.
the arm do not generate power, the shoulder do not generate power, the hip do not generate power. But together they help to transmit power from the lower body...the limbs, just like the engine in the propeller engine.
Accordingly to the author, the true functions of the arms is to be in a position to transmit energy to the club and onto the ball, and the required arm tension is a function of the quality of the swing geometry. Simply said, if someone needs to "work the club a lot" with the hands and arms, its a case of poor swing geometry.
there is a lot more...but it's evident that Birdman is not far from the Truth.

go to amazon and buy the book....
no need to see video, i am convinced the author is quite right.
you want to learn the drills, ask Jhan...he has taught me some and its top notch.
later i use impact stik to demonstrate and will be accused of "aggressive persuasion".
