Using complex math, British engineering professor Robin Sharp has discovered the perfect golf swing. His research, focusing on three rotation points in the upper body, found that it's all in the arms, not the wrist. "Generating too much arm speed too soon causes an early release, with the club-head reaching its maximum speed before it arrives at the ball," Sharp says. Short people, take courage: He says height doesn't convey much advantage on the links.
