Resource Page for the positions and power package (Pressure Points, and Power Accumulators).
P2 – Club shaft parallel with the ground (Back swing)
P3- Left arm parallel with the ground (Back swing)
P4- Top of back swing
P5- Left arm parallel with the ground (Down swing)
p6- Shaft Parallel with the ground (Down swing)
P8- Shaft Parallel with the ground (Through Swing)
p9- Right arm parallel with the ground (Through Swing)
The Ps are used to classify the positions in the golf swing. It makes it very easy to compare golfers swings. It’s also a great way to show a player there progress in making changes.
Power Package: PPs and PAs
“Force is applied to the Ball through the Lever Assemblies. Power is applied to the Lever Assemblies through Pressure Points. Power is applied to the Pressure Points by Power Accumulators”
– Homer Kelley “The Golfing Machine” 6-B-0
PP#1- Right heel pad of hand against left thumb
PP#2- Last three Fingers of left hand

Golfers use different combinations of these pressure points. A golfer who is referred to as a “swinger” because they’re left side is pulling the golf club primarily use pressure points #2 and #4. Golfers referred to as a “hitter” because they’re right side is pushing the club primarily use pressure points #1 and #3.
PA#1 – The bending and straightening of the right arm (muscle thrust)
PA#2- The cocking and uncocking of the left wrist (Velocity Power)
PA#3- The turn and roll of the angle established between the Clubshaft and the Left Forearm when you take the grip (Transfer Power)
PA#4- The angle formed by the left arm and the left shoulder (Radius Power)
For now I hope this is a good resource of recognizing the different pieces of the POWER PACKAGE and identifying the positions in the golf swing. I may be adding more explanation at a later data.
