Impact and finish
Around the Academy:



Such is the potency of Vijay's action that his right hand often appears to come off the club at impact.

The only negative aspect of a wide to narrow swing is that you can sacrifice positional quality and so because of this combination with his power the right hand simply cannot 'hang on' for the ride.

The last tell tale sign of his action can be found in the high, wide and relatively slow finish to the arm swing.

As a 'worker' of the ball this finish position can change according to what Vijay wants to do with the ball.
