Ya.. I know.. That's why I put up his shot and not mine.. The reason I revived a thread from 2009 is because I went searching for it; this is because I know I am overswinging and I was just putting up an example of how someone can get to the top of the swing without overswinging like my self.. so, ya.. I wasn't comparing his and my swing :)
You? Your sequencing is off.
You've not hinged the club, you've not turned as much as you should, and then you continue your backswing
So to go back to your original paragraph (the last one I quoted):
1) Yes, your torso turn should be nearly complete by about A3.
2) Yes, your wrists should be hinged/cocked/whatever by about A3.
3) Yes, your arms (and torso) will continue on a little bit longer, but not very much.
I want to thank you for the quick look at my swing & for the tips.. I will work on those.. Maybe because I'm not hinged I just keep on swinging back? I don't know.. Or it could be that I need that extra time coming down to be able to get the club face to a position where I won't hit that push (specially with a driver)..
What if your 3/4 swing IS a full swing, and what you do after that is doing nothing positive (and may even be doing negative) things?
Someone with reasonably good mechanics who just overswings could be just fine hitting what feel like 3/4 length backswings. Many people will actually do this and hit the ball farther than what they think is their "full swing" (but which is really an overswing).
Or let me put it this way: too many golfers think their full swing is as much as they can do, when really that's like a 1 1/4 swing, or a 5/3 swing. Their "3/4" swing is only a 3/4 swing on a scale that goes to 15 when it should stop at 10.
If that was the case with my 3/4 swing then I take back everything I said and I would do it.
The thing is with me though when I mentioned the advice, I have tried all of them and they haven't worked for me.. Maybe if the message was delivered in a different way the advice would make more sense.. Like hinging the wrist at the A3 position for example.. that's something I can implement.. but tell me to swing easy and I'll probably just not know what to do :)
Thanks again though.. I learned something!
