I recently converted to the SnT swing and I have been having a lot of success with my irons, but my driver has seen no progress at all.
I'm going to list the assumptions I've gathered and adjusted to to see if I have just comprehended it incorrectly.
-Ball aligned in the left inside heel.
-Handle slightly forward to the inner thigh.
-Head and sternum on a fixed plane aligned with the head of the driver, not the ball.
-Right elbow tucked into side of chest (lats) throughout the back swing and downswing (feels very unnatural and cramped)
-Hips push forward towards the target through the downswing and follow through
-Left shoulder feels like it's pushing up through the downswing, and this leads to expansion of the chest and tucking of the butt in the follow through
-Upper axis tilts away from the target while hips are pushed towards the target
-right foot 'jumps' off the mat to push hips through (maybe I'm making the push too snappy?)
First off, before I converted to stack and tilt I couldn't hit my driver well either. But now It's either a pop up push fade, low grass burner that goes 50 yards, or a big duck hook. When I first started doing these methods I would hit maybe 5-7/35 balls with a beautiful push draw with plenty of distance, now I seemed to have regressed using the same methods and it's about 1-35 that are decent drives and not the push draw but more of just a push. The rest are like I mentioned, sometimes I hit the gates that separate the mats.
The most un-natural part I feel like is keeping the elbow tucked like I see in the videos, it feels like the club is fixed on an single path on the backswing but then feels like I'm slapping the ball with torso rotation giving really weak and weird shots. I'm going to try and get a video up as reading and adjustments haven't helped much yet but maybe you guys see something wrong with what I listed above.
I'm trying to get better off the tee before I start playing more on the course but right now it seems like the only clubs I can rely on are my irons.
