Toe Up Swing Left question
Golf Gear mentioned in this thread:
Zach and Dustin's faces aren't closed because of any lack of forearm rotation. Zach has a very strong grip and Dustin palmar flexes (bowes) his left wrist, his club face is square to the back of his left wrist.
Having the toe up means the club face is too open to the arc/inclined plane, most guys look like this. Tend to see more toe up when the hands work straighter back, encourages more forearm rotation.
Thank you for those pictures, that was very interesting. I have a strong grip as well and don't want to mess around with it too much so I was told to have toe up during first part of the takeaway. In order to close the club face I was also told to try and imagine swinging left even though on video I could not tell the difference in swing planes it seemed to work. My misses are now thin which shouldnt have to do with too much forearm roation right?
Can't say for sure, would need to see the swing. If I had to guess I would say the forearm rotation isn't helping things, thin shots could also just be a compensation after hitting some shots fat.
Looks about right for what he's trying to do, it's a little too closed but the camera angle isn't perfect. What I like is that it comes close to matching the angle of the left arm and his spine angle at this point in the swing.
Good video to check out
