Good drill if you have a friend, or stick two shafts or a shaft and a driveway marker together.

 

 

You know you're a golf geek when this is one of the coolest things you've seen all day.

Charlie's coach could really use a cheeseburger. : )

I dub thee, Knight of the Hands Deep, rise and may your people hit high draws long and far, forevermore.

This is EXACTLY what my instructor is working with me on, it's one big key to a great golf swing. My recent problem is that I sometimes don't move my hands "inside" enough. My question is how far do you go inside with your hands at the A2 position? If you would drop your hands from the A2 position, in which direction would the clubhead fall? Towards your toes or the middle of your right foot? Do the hands move 90 degrees inside from the A1 position?

This "pressure points" feeling in the armpits is what I just recently started noticing. I hit a particularly good shot the other day and realized I could feel my upper arms stayed in contact with my upper chest/sides. I started focusing on keeping that feeling the rest of the day and I started hitting some very quality shots. Most of the shots that went wrong were duck hooks which I assumed was due to getting too flat.

It was probably something else, might have just been missed more towards the toe. You can scroll up a few posts and see the A4 of Charlie Hoffman, you probably weren't swinging your arms "flatter" than that. Torso alignments might have gotten too flat, tough to say since I'm not familiar with your swing.

It's strange that such a small thing like this may have such a large impact in improving my swing. I will have a better idea if it's still helping after tonight. If it proves to still be better I'll hit the range and record an updated swing and post it.

After posting my swing, Erik suggested I see this thread.

 

Question: How do you get deep hands without pulling the club too far to the inside? i.e. "below the swing plane." I can see that my hands (and arms and everything else) are very shallow, but I think I've been swinging this way to compensate for trying to avoid pulling the club too far behind me on the takeaway. Is it a function of forearm rotation and proper wrist cock?

Question, did you read through the thread?

Not the whole thing, no. What'd I miss?

In a word, yes.

How do you get the angle of the stick correct?

You'd basically want to see the shoulders turn at about a right angle to the address inclination. So you try to get close to that but for emphasis and how you have to hold it, the stick will end up being a little steeper than that. It's not something that has to be exact with, just holding the stick at an angle to where they can't lift their arms above their shoulders should work great.
