Newton's laws of motion, if not already, should become a basic part of your golf game very soon.

Let the pendulum that swings so regularly and predictably in Big Ben serve as a model golf action.

Don't hit the ball. Swing the club head smoothly through the ball with some force late. Don't fire the muscles until your lever assembly -- shoulders, arms, hands –- drop below your armpits. Then hit through the ball to the pin.
