Golfers should try and keep their left arm as straight as possible but some bend is fine because a rigidly straight left arm will be the death of your golf swing. Although it isn't the dominant arm for right-handed players, the left arm is vital to the golf swing. It largely determines the spacing and arc of your golf swing, it helps control the clubface and ensures power through impact. See a great left arm drill here.

|Karsten Solheim started Ping in his garage in Redwood City, California. He built his first putter in 1959 and noticed it made a "ping" sound when it struck the ball, a discovery that inspired the name of his company. See some historical info here. By 1962, a Ping putter was used to win a PGA Tour event for the first time. Many club golfers use Ping clubs to improve their game and around 30 of the top professionals in the world. Over the years Ping putters have always been in the bags of players on top of the leaderboard. It was great to see Matt Fitzpatrick win the US Open with a set of Ping irons. Golf Traders always have a great selection of woods, irons, wedges, putters and bags. If you want to get some help with your game, have a look at what we have in store here.|
