That is true. Increasing shoulder tilt should increase the steepness of the club on the backswing and downswing. Even more reason to flatten my downswing.
I think my instructor probably would have had me work on flattening my swing even if he had not increased my shoulder tilt, because there are so many beneficial effects of the flattening move. But the increased shoulder tilt does seem to make flattening the swing a little more urgent. Because it does put the club even farther up in the air on the back swing.
Of course, the reason for fixing the shoulder tilt was because lack of shoulder tilt meant that on the down swing my right shoulder came out instead of down, causing me to cast the club over the top.
How I setup now is probably symptomatic of the lessons that I took as a kid in which my posture was criticized for slumping over the ball. I did notice that in the videos that I posted my weight seemed to be distributed more on my heels. I don't remember exactly what I was working on that day that was inducing that, but that is not really common for me.
I picked bi-monthly but the reality of it is, it is much longer than that. I could see a high handicapper coming in more frequently because he may not know by watching his video if he is doing it right or overdoing it. But once you reach a stage where you know the bad habits to watch for and you know from a drill how it should look the work probably takes quite a long time.
About 10 years ago I actually played in 32 degrees / 25 mph north winds on Galveston Island of all places; golf is a 12 month a year sport in Texas so you get to play in temps from the 30s to the 100s.
The PGA of America is holding its 2016 Championship for Assistant Professionals beginning today in Port St. Lucie, FL. I normally wouldn't know anything about this, but this year is different, The first assistant from our club, Paul Apolenis, is down in Florida to compete. He shot 79-64 in the Section Assistant Championship to tie for seventh, and was the second alternate to go to the national championship. After a few of the members here knee-capped two of the higher qualifiers , Paul got his invitation. Our membership is pretty proud of him, and hoping for a great performance from him this week. I suppose I just felt like bragging a bit.
