Couldn't resist, from this month's Golf Magazine.  

 

Says chest over the ball, but his upper center is behind the ball, or centered.  Nice dorsi flexion of the left wrist too, I'm sure that is how it looks at impact.....

That impact position jumped off the page - didn't read another word of that article.

Thanks for that. I won't be buying Golf Magazine any time soon.

That's a little extreme. It's still an excellent magazine in spite of that one photo.

I never buy golf magazines anyway! ;-) But that is a shocking photo. How can that get by the editor before going to print?!

One of my buddies told me and my friends that taking the club back very outside and taking a giant divot with your driver through impact is the standard for most pros. He was dead serious, too. I found it very funny.

I may merge these posts into this thread eventually, but for now, this qualifies as a "comic".

Blimey! He's obviously never spoken to an S&T instructor in his life.

Dave Wedzik said, 

    • I wonder how many golfers he has actually taught that turned their hips and shoulders the SAME amount? And modern golf equipment is SO light, etc...yeah no wonder everyone is complaining they hit it too far. I really can't believe I just read any of this. It is embarrassing that golf instruction is still this far away from having any real commonality.

These article clippings are more horrifying than funny. Every time I read a new post on this thread I feel like I'm walking around a corridor and seeing this:

Tells us to swing farther out to the right to turn hooks into push draws...

If you frequently hit your driver low on the face, even top the ball, you're probably releasing your wrist hinge too soon on the downswing. You're trying to help the ball get up by making a flipping motion with your hands. It's impossible to generate much clubhead speed doing that.

To create more speed, here's a great swing thought: Rotate your forearms counter-clockwise as you start down, turning the face of your driver to the ground (above). Another good feel is to get the back of your glove pointing down, as if you were going to drag your knuckles along the turf. This move will help you maintain your wrist hinge longer coming down. Remember, power comes from clubhead lag, where the clubhead lags behind your hands until your wrists release at the bottom of the swing.

One word of caution here: Because you're closing the clubface earlier than you're probably used to, you might start hitting hooks, until you adjust your path into the ball. Feel as if you're swinging out to the right of the target. Do that, and you'll turn those left misses into power draws.
