what "device" is everyone talking about here?  Is this swing extender or the right angle 2 (RA2).  I didn't see a video on the first page of this topic, not sure if it was removed (I am using chrome)

Yes, I said right arm. No, I don't mean it literally. If you want to keep your backswing shorter - and probably 95%+ of golfers should - feel like you keep your right arm straight(er) on the b

To answer the both of you... Inward hand path (not too far inward, but again, the list of people who take their hands too far in is zero) is important. I prefer to keep your right elbow fairly well

This is fantastic. As much trouble as I know I have been having with my left arm (I am left handed, so the right arm in this video), it had not occurred to me to keep it from bending beyond 90 degrees at the top of my back swing. That coil and feeling of power being built up at the top of the swing is useless if it does not come down correctly and on plane. Recently I had been trying to drive my left elbow into my side on my downswing because too often do I get 'armsy' on my downswing.  Bending it beyond 90 degrees, though, could be the root of my inconsistencies of late (hittin thins, fat shots, duffs), and driving into my rib cage probably worsened things after all 😅.

 

Oh ya can't help but laugh at this stupid effing game sometimes. Looking forward to putting this theory to work today at the range - perhaps purchasing a swing extender as well. Thanks for posting this; probably saved me a lot of grief and curse words ! 

😎👍

I have recently been using the “straight right arm” backswing and my backswing is much much shorter. 
I can also feel the wrists lagging when I start going forward. 
 

overall more power and accuracy. 
 

my issue is when I go back sometimes I get too “high” and not “around” with my BS. May be a personal issue, but high = hooking it left...around = small baby draw. 
 

I also use the RightAngle2 to practice. Set it to 45 degrees per Butch Harmon and works wonders in a few sessions. 
 

free bump for this awesome thread.

Well, you don't really apply extensor action super early in the backswing. It's more of a "halfway to all the way back" feeling.

Actually, it's not possible to apply it from address, because:

"Extensor action is exclusively the steady effort to straighten the bent Right Arm. This stretches but does move the Left Arm and produces a structural rigidity that is a strong deterrent to collapse under the stresses of Acceleration and Impact."

That's the definition. So, the trail elbow is generally pretty straight, so you can't extend it much farther.

    • 124, 120, 119, 118, 114 Another nice bump.  After making sure I was getting to or slightly past parallel in the backswing in the last session, today I made sure my hands were getting higher.  That made a big difference right away.  Didn't make any swings with the driver but I might hit balls later today and see what the numbers translate to on the range.  I'm hoping I'll get over 110 hitting balls.
    • My wife and I walk local courses in the off season.  We gave up doing that, however, if there is more than an inch or two of snow on the ground.  Walking in snow can be tough.
    • Nice thought, but they got the course locked tight until March. Kind of had a bit of that this fall when stuff finally started clicking into place. Remember being giddy hitting an 8I on our long par-4 9th hole. Going to use some stimulus for the range membership next year, so I'll be imagining some really crazy drives until then when the inevitable reality reintroduces itself.  
    • Below are some videos from 1-15-21 and 1-16-21 Both sessions were 95% drills. I did video a slow swing just to see how it would look (last 2 swings).    
    • Walk (ski/snowshoe) your favorite course in the snow and start figuring out where your new, longer drives will be landing. Then begin imagining which shorter clubs you'll be hitting into the green.
