I just like making things more simple, to me the move simplifies things.  At least with what I would have to think about.  For him, who knows, maybe it is actually a less natural move and he has to think about more feels.   I can see it taking a bit for him to start really grooving in the swing as well.

 

Yea, ideally less motion is better. The old adage "Keep it Simple Stupid" comes to mind. I agree with you, but I find certain swings fun to watch, I liked his old one.

Agree, it was very fun to watch.

I don't know that I'd agree it's more "natural." I could easily make a case that what he did before was "more natural" - what he's doing now is after coaching and thus "less natural."

 


 

Not a huge fan of these pieces:

 

 

 

Perhaps that's the next step - left arm a bit more out, shaft laid down a tad. Right now, still super deep @ 5 and steep to boot.

Contrived would mean deliberately creating a motion, so you could say his swing is more "contrived" now since he's deliberately working on making it different than before.

From what I've seen this week, misses look like they tend to be right.

 

I definitely think he's in a better position now at A4 for that left arm "out", shallow the shaft, piece to occur.

Backswing alignments are more visually appealing. Downswing looks the same to my eyes. It'll be interesting to see if Butch even touches the downswing.

 

Definitely agree with Erik and Mike, left arm needs to go out at p5 with shaft flatter. I can tell you from experience that it's not the easiest change to make!
