- About me
Played the PGA Tours of the world for just over 20 years. Won a few, lost a few. My own bed is great after that many years in hotels. Teaching golf now hoping to give people good information to improve to whatever standard they want to reach.
It's called 'golf' because all the other four letter words were already taken

Cool BradO...thanks for posting the lil man whacking... down low and working around...good stuff
This one above is a great view of how the hip rotation and shoulder rotation match up in both the pre strike and post strike ....and how the hands and handle are still close to the centre and haven't been elongated out and away from the body (which would be a slow down)
I think a good drill for getting more low and left on my follow through would be to try to hit golf balls with a glove under my right shoulder, so it has to stay tucked in to keep the glove.
Wouldnt recommend that on full shots......the arms need to pack back in so they stay pressured into and through the strike.... trying to keep them pressured the whole way back down and...
Really solid info in this thread. As I understand you advocate keeping the left hand wrist cupped all the way until impact, where club face is squared with forearm rotation. How does action change if left wrist is bowed in the transition and club face is kept square to the plane until impact?
Left wrist bowed is gonna have the clubface shut coming down and less forearm...
Pictures below of my swing in 2001 (long pants) when I was still working on guidance of set early on the backswing and stay on my left leg- compared to 2011 (shorts) when I knew all that info was wrong and had started working on rectifying it
2001 one pics - steeper down- leaning onto left leg with no spine angle- snapped straight left leg- no right leg pressure or grind- arm throwaway through impact- clubface closure on exit... HORRENDOUS as my instincts told...
