Yeah I just think it throws me off because of where I horizontally align my two hands when trying the version where I raise my arms first. Makes it awkward for me to move to the intermediate steps before I rotate back. But maybe that's the point, maybe it being awkward for me is a signal of the fact I'm just doing it wrong haha

Maybe.

Make the right change. Which won't be anywhere near full speed.

If you oriented a clock where 9 PM is directly left and 3 PM is directly right from your field of view in the first drill (hands up, then turn), are your hands going up to 1 PM?

No. Look, it's pretty simple, and it's been the same thing the whole time:

  • Your "shirt seam" is on the side of you. Your "midline" in the "coronal plane."
  • Your sternum is in the front of you.
  • Both of those things move as you turn your torso during your backswing.

You move your trail elbow and trail upper arm too far toward the shirt seam, and it should stay more toward the sternum. It can go up or down, it goes too far around. It starts in front of your sternum, and shouldn't move nearly as far from where it starts as you move it now.

All makes sense, cheers. I was just trying to orient the drill in 3D space. The two arms ultimately work together and if my trail arm/elbow is too far to the side it had me thinking that maybe I’m letting my lead arm get too splayed out flat across my chest in an effort to keep my elbows close together.

Your elbow going around your body too far pulls your left arm too tightly across your chest, yes.

But you can keep your elbows closer together when one doesn't tuck around beside you.

So to put it another way, you believe that where I’m putting the vertex of the arm triangle is a byproduct of letting the trail elbow slip too wide and not that the trail elbow slipping is the byproduct itself?

 

That def helps frame it, or at least focus it. Thanks

    • 8:31. Yep. Right through it. Brooks was right @Zippo
    • Was thinking the same thing!  Love this format - see as a thinking man’s game of best ball where you have to work your way out of a potential mess as a team…
    • 1985 - Our Ford Mustang was stolen out of our apartment parking lot.  A day later I realized my and my wife's golf bags were in the trunk.  Usually my bag would have been in my car and my wife's in the closet but we had played together that weekend. Off to the golf shop I went and purchased two full sets of clubs, bags, balls, shoes, etc.  The best part was since we had a combined HO/Auto policy, only the $100 automobile comprehensive deductible applied so all the golf equipment was "free".
    • Gotcha. But your pic does look like that’s a crease and not part of the design. At least imo.
    • Think that’s the extreme version in the pic. Got mine from my club pro who ordered from cobra direct.
