Yea, I know that problem :whistle:

 

For me it was just pounding those drills till the move didn't feel HORRIBLE!!! Good Luck!!!

Thanks, yeah I am hoping it is the last really "big" change I need to make for a while.

About as close as I have come to an eagle on a par 4 this morning. Even a blind acorn finds a squirrel once in a while.

Oh yeah!  I wanted to try and exaggerate it as much as I could at first to really feel the difference.  It probably did not help that I was making the downswings with the basket there.  Now hopefully I can reign it in a bit and find the middle ground with better turning rates going back as it becomes more comfortable.

Ha.  That's what you think.  You can check out any time you like, but you can't never leave.

Some rookie hazing for me then.  Just let me know, Dunkin or Krispy Kreme.

More green arrow, to correct the red arrow. Not the black arrow.

Ha.  Looked overdone to me too but I was assuming that he was doing it that way on purpose to make green arrow feel comfortable more quickly, cause at least it's not black arrow?

However, I did think I was supposed to feel some out...I will work on just the "UP".  That makes it way easier.  :-D Thanks for the visual @iacas.

Red was my approximation of what you're doing now. Too much in, not enoug

He might have, but you probably overdid it. Your hands shouldn't actually ever really go OUT there.

Okay perfect. I might even need to feel "slight" out just to get the hands moving on the green line instead of the red. I will keep at it though and see what it feels like. My guess is it just feels back and up when I do it correctly.

Sorry if my bringing up the out contributed to this at all.  I mentioned it just because when I started making this shift even swings where my hands were right on the green line it felt like I was doing what you were actually doing in the last video.  But then I was sucking my hands back much worse than you to start...

No it is good information. Thanks for the thoughts!
