be a truly complete golfer get a handle on the 'flick'.
When you've got a drive or an upshot that has to fade to the opposite
direction to your backhand this is the shot.
Most golfers only use a sidearm if they really have to and because they
don't have to that often, never really get too proficient with it. A
good sidearm throw is all about the 'flick'. The release is not at the
full extension of the arm as in a backhand, but pretty much directly
in front of the body. If you've thrown nothing but backhand for a long
time it will hurt, so take it easy to begin with. This type of throw
is trademark Taumarunui - all the blokes there were shown the sport
by Pete Boyle who throws an incredibly accurate sidearm from drive to
putt- yes, putt. These guys are amzing to watch in a tournie - the power,
the accuracy, the grace, the kauri-sized legs...Kiwi Icons.
