Haha, okay. You're just saying that because of your A4.15. b2_tongue.gif

"B" is surprising to me, but maybe it shouldn't be. I'll think about it. 

As you start to lose the flat left wrist, and the handle backs up, this can send the path left................................... ...............or so I have read. I sounded pretty good for a minute there.

Yea it can, and usually does. Sadly for me, when I lose it, the face tends to close prematurely and my start lines get yanked left but still with draw curve. 

 

I guess anything can happen really. If I get tired of starting it too far left, I tend to compensate by just cupping more and leaving the face open, so the push shows up too. 

 

Bottomline, losing the flat left wrist ain't no fun. :-D

Bottom line for me, and also sadly, I don't think I ever had the flat left wrist....

Key 3 is Inline Impact. Stay with the times, guys. We changed it several months ago. a1_smile.gif

You could, there are definitely PGA Tour players that swing a little left but still achieve Key #3. That's a different discussion though. Generally achieving the first three Keys tends to produce an OUTward path, which is tends to be a beneficial swing direction for most golfers. There are some players that fade the ball but still swing "out", like Ryan Moore, Fred Couples. They just aim a good amount left at A1.

(Haha, thanks for editing that... I was really confused when it said "A3" instead of "Key 3")
