They suggested that most players would fit into one of three different categories. The differences between their suggested categories lay in the amount of shaft bending in the toe/heel direction of the clubhead and the time from the top of the backswing to impact. Category one players had a fast downswing with a distinct ‘single peak’ in shaft bending in the toe direction, which resulted in the greatest shaft bending and highest peak force. Category two had a small ‘double peak’ shaft-bending profile, which indicated that these players loaded the shaft twice during the downswing.
The left and right wrist can create a force couple using the forearm adductors. However, a force generated from the right triceps brachii is more effective in creating power, due to a longer lever and larger crosssectional area of muscle.  The right hand does not need to grip the club to push the shaft when extending at the elbow, thereby decreasing the risk of slowing down the shaft at release. Furthermore, both pectoralis major muscles seem to have an important role in the downswing.
