Need to find a consistent feel to sustain this picture. As of now it is 'keep right arm straight' as long as possible. 

In this thread. Page 3 It is also similar to the soft trail arm challenge feel.  

A quick check after work today. Trying to feel a full torso turn while keeping incline.

See how the path is going to be more of a fade path though? This ties into the slightly laid off feel we’ve had you do to this point.

Interesting.. didn't even notice. Makes sense though. Thanks.

Few minutes today. Lost couple of weeks for work and travel. Still doesn't seem like I am getting to the widest. FEELS wide as heck.

It's not as wide as it could be because it goes out too much early, which then makes it go "around" more.

Shoulders turn steeper, hands go more straight back to start. Right elbow goes away from your ribs, not behind toward your shirt seam.

Ahh yes, that is correct! It feels like the whole hands-arms-club unit gets dynamically sucked 'into' me no matter how much I try to keep it away at the top and into transition.

It makes sense. Admittedly hard habit to break but at least I know now. Thanks.

Super plush lie chipping practice in the backyard this morning. It's like eating dessert for breakfast. Total guilty pleasure and no nutritional value.. 😂

Sorry about the darkness, #wiferules. Same attempt - hands straight back to get wide at top.

@GolfLug, by Sunday… a video of you with massive

W   I   D   T   H

As I said, days 2, 3, 19, and 20.

Yeah, so did day 19 drill with an imaginary band to help feel hand path A1-A2.

What differences do you see here?

Look at the right elbow.

W-I-D-T-H, man. You can't get enough. YOU can't get enough.

I think I am starting to understand the need for hand depth to gain width.

Kinda, but kinda the opposite too.

If you push your hands "out" early, they'll "suck in" late and fold/collapse.

If you just turn (ideally on a steeper angle with your shoulders), and lift, and fold barely… they'll be plenty wide and deep enough.

I have played with this push-out early then suck in collapse loopy move for so long, the Mylan coating on my brain pathways is like 40 years old veneer on hardwood.

I really need a few good rounds at some point with this move then I can get some trust and re-Mylan for good. I have literally been losing all context half way through the downswing and jump on the ball abandoning all trust. Scores are a bit comical but I understand where we need to go (I said 'we', hah). Need to survive the lows this year. Digging deep for patience.

    • I'm watching this video and he mentions "he got himself a little more out onto the front of his feet" and "he's got himself more centred in to back of his feet" in the other comparison https://youtu.be/S8dkDx8YVkI?t=242  Does that mean he puts more weight on the front of his feet than the back?   One more question: how do you create more space for the right arm during impact as mentioned here? He's more tipped over which allows this , I think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8dkDx8YVkI?t=280 Would reducing how much your right forearm can rotate clockwise help with this, duringthe end of your backswing?
    • Sounds like he may have originated from my neck of the woods,   ‘Awayanbileyerheid’ is a fairly humorous response to someone ,  sort of like ,get lost your talking drivel (nonsense) If you want to get an insight of the meaning , Google ‘ Parliamo Glasgow’ -;))
    • I don’t think there is anything wrong with watching YouTube golf instruction videos, if and only if you stick to one or two instructors. I personally like Matt Fisher and Danny Maude myself.    Funny story: I played golf with three guys I haven’t seen in person since about 2003 today. Anyway one of the guys I played with, reminded me of a video I watched on posture recently, with Danny Maude. Me as a low single figure handicap my arms look like / at address down the line. You want them like | or \ slightly on the latter. My posture sucks… and I shot 1 under on the back today.
    • Can you share some information about your computer, such as OS?
    • There used to be a joke about the instructional articles in Golf Digest.  It might still be there, I haven't subscribed in years.  Anyway, every odd-numbered month, the lesson would be "fix your slice," but what they wouldn't tell you is that it'd cost you 10 yards.  In even numbered months, they'd tell you how to gain 10 yards on your tee shot, but not tell you that it'd cause you to slice. YouTube instruction is a bit like that.  You'll get conflicting information that may or may not cancel out.  Find someone reputable and get lessons for you not for some generic you. If you need someone online to give you something to work on, and don't feel like spending the money for something quality like Evolvr (hey, money was tight when I took up golf, I understand), at least make a "My Swing" thread and try what ends up being suggested for you.  The first time I did this, I was shocked at how someone could watch a few swings on video and give me good advice of what to practice that resulted in some improvement.
