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)

The Swing Extender is a bit less expensive and does its job well.

Here's one video:

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.

    • The dreaded shanks are contagious. If you hit one on the range fine, but two in a row and just walk away and go putt and come back after a few minutes and remember to breathe. Once you do come back, work on your path with a headcover just outside the ball and start with some easy shots then progress to full shots. Question for you, do you tend to whip the club inside on the takeaway or slide forward a bit? And remember:  Everybody shanks, sometimes.....  
    • Well the golf season never really ends here so I will add to these numbers with a few more round this year hopefully, but here we go:  I have played roughly 35 times this year, and I have played at: Raveneaux Country Club  Cypresswood (Tradition Course) Jersey Meadow Golf Club Windrose Golf Club Memorial Park Golf Course Cypress Lakes Houston National Longwood Southwyck  Patty Jewett Golf Course Augusta Pines Golf Course Meadowbrook Farms  High Meadow Ranch Pamilla Beach and Golf Club Sterling Country Club Spring Valley Disc and Golf Club Raven Nest Golf Club  I hope to add at least one more course to this list before YE. 
    • Besides the smarty pants answer of a putter or wedge...I looked at game golf (even though I haven't used it much in recent months). I hit almost 40% of my green inside 150 yards so I would say I need an 8 Iron, or maybe a 7 to feel pretty confident about my GIR chances. 
    • Yep, yep, sorry. You're totally right. Brain fart on my part - as soon as I read that I facepalmed and thought about how I knew that but just didn't think at all in typing that part out. The MMR stuff was the 60s, so my mom would have lived through those. But I don't think those were anything near this level, so I think my overall point still stands about how nobody has really lived through something like this to have a history or memory. Oh, to be perfectly clear, I'm not going anywhere near anything you could describe as a "crowd" even if the word "small" is in front of it. The lines at Best Buy had markers every 10' here in Erie, for example, and my wife and I shop at off-hours so as to avoid even like 20 people in the grocery store. Fair enough, but like you even say, I don't think they were anything near or like the level of this particular case. The last one in the U.S. may have been the Spanish Flu stuff. Which I thought just now may have been 1913 (Francis Ouimet), but which was 1918 or so. So, after Eddie and Francis won the U.S. Open together. 🙂
