Ben Hogan said many things that might be understood in different ways. I won't list them all off but I will start off by asking what does he mean by using the inside muscles to swing a golf club. How does one isolate and activate only those muscles.

    His comment was too use the muscles that stretch along the inside. Verses, use the muscles that contract along the inside. Very different muscle actions depending on which action (stretch or contract) you are using.

    Thanks for your response. I was thinking that all muscles have to contract to move us in any direction. What about his comment that the secret is easy to see if I told you where to look.

    Now that looks very interesting! I have noticed that in other players too. I don't know how it's done.

    Maintain some of the DS right arm clockwise winding (torque) through impact. It’s motivated by the grip pressures of the two middle fingers of the right hand.

    Yes I think that's right. I will try this next practice session. Goes well with some other things I'm working on.

    Ben Hogan said " The Secret is in the dirt". Many have said this means driving range practice. I would like to hear other ideas.
