Re: My Swing (Stretch)
Stretch, for what its worth, here is one thought I have. If you run through your video frame by frame it seems to me that your hands start the swing instead of the arms -- in other words, it looks like you start the movement of the club with a little cock of the wrists before the forearms move from the set-up position.
I have been looking at a ton of swingvision video of the tour players and one very constant move is that they have what is typically called a "one-piece" takeaway -- meaning that hands/wrists don't begin to cock until the clubhead has moved away from the ball -- some refer this as a low and slow takeaway b/c the right arm remains fully extended (no wrist cock) until they are a foot or more away from the ball (some start cocking at that point, some hold a bit longer) -- but the constant seems to be keeping that one-piece takeaway together to start the backswing.
Right now, I have myself convinced that as long as I get the first couple of feet of the backswing correct (smooth, low and slow), I can't screw up the rest if I tried -- so I am free to swing loose, easy and tension free from there. It seems to be working.
So, maybe try holding off on the initial wrist cock until the club is a foot or more away from the ball -- and then let it rip from there.
Here is Sergio doing what I am trying to describe....he retains major extension before starting the wrist cock....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjtuBfTd2hk
