Yeah, so that's me.  Short arms through impact, with zero extension of the arms.  Looking like this it makes it VERY difficult to do anything other than swipe at the ball.  For me, I think it's caused by my penchant for goat humping.  Arms have to shorten if I'm humping or else the club will slam into the ground.

Anyone else have trouble with the T-Rex arms?

Yup.

:8)

Thanks to the magic of 240fps I'm also painfully aware that I look like a man backing away from rabid racoon at impact.

I hope you don't wear those shorts with a gaping hole in the ass unless you actually have a tail...

You're a few shades of purple away from @Golfingdad.

I hope its a little cool for our outing in a couple of weeks, and that Mike brings the camera.  I am going to blow your mind (and @cipher 's and @Ernest Jones ') when I show up in a different sweater.

"Wait ... GD owns TWO sweaters?!?!?!?!?"  You damn right!!

@colin007 you should start a swing thread!!!  (But don't wear those shorts.  Also, don't be green.)

Are you bending too much in your knees or putting too much bend in your waist/hips? It sounds like that could be an issue that causes your "arm crunch". Also, being a T-Rex would kind of suck. You can't make a bed, you can't play golf, etc. Lol.

I actually did, earlier this year. Good example of my goat humping skillz...

I went to the range today and just told myself to extend the arms all the way through, it seemed to feel different, but without video I can't know if there was any change... I like the mental image of throwing the big rock as far and high as I can, that's what I was picturing.

Funny because we call the guys that never buy a round T-Rex because their short little arms can never get to their pockets to pull their wallets out!

I've got a friend like that... Either he doesn't pull the wallet out, or he's only got $100s and doesn't want to break one.
