QATR-102: Never the Case – The Baseball vs. the Golf Swing Coach


My grandfather, Homer Q. Boatright, also my swing coach, taught me the basic swing techniques and mechanics in baseball first, before introducing me to the game of golf. And to his credit, he was correct to do so. The two swings are more similar then they are different both in mechanics and techniques.

Stage One- Using the Baseball swing to Coach the Golf Swing


My golf coach, my grandfather, for the first week, he would have me practice with a baseball bat while hitting the tennis ball, then he slowly taught me how to Sync/Preset my wrists into the Lock Position. Then my swing coach had me to take the bat back and up, to the top of the swing. My swing coach had me do this before placing a golf club in my hands and a golf ball on a long tee into the ground. My grandfather was trying to get me to sync/preset my wrists.


The next coaching stage was to have me take a stance of a shortstop with my hands together, like I was getting ready to field a ground ball up the middle. Then my golf coach handed me a 7- Iron and introduced me to two important muscles in the golfer’s wrists, the Thenars.


The Thenars (Thenar and Hypothenar) are the only two muscles in the human body that have direct contact with the handle of the golf club. That should pique the interest of any golfer.


The handle of the golf club, because it’s not horizontally-orientated like a baseball bat would be in your hand, has to be gripped where the handle is diagonal, in relation to these two muscles, as shown below. In other words, at the top of each Hypothenar and the base of each Thenar.
