Stubborn Steepness

@DeadPoets, I think you misunderstood.

This topic isn't the GG topic, and we try to keep things pretty much on topic here.

I assure you, we like to talk about swing mechanics, theoretical or otherwise… just in the proper place.

That's fair.

And btw, maybe I misunderstood your response to me earlier.  But were you saying that you've "largely gone away from those moves" (like holding a tray)?  

Or that you've gone away from drills like the one you posted in your YT video in 2016? Because that looks like an awesome drill (unless of course it never translated at full speed).

Holding a tray is a killer for me, yeah. I'm trying to feel much less right wrist extension. My right wrist gets highly extended when my elbow gets too narrow. I wasn't feeling "holding a tray" in the video you've posted twice now, no.

I've gone away from those drills. At any speed, the wrists will not "move" the clubhead like shown in that video.

Coming back to this thread I feel like most of us who struggled with this came from the place where the backswing was nowhere near steep enough. I’m not saying that’s for everyone but a lot of golfers could improve by making their backswing steeper.

This is a great video bound to help a lot of people out there. I came to a somewhat similar conclusion a while back but this one really is good IMO.

    • You’re right. Interesting. I ordered mine just a month ago and Mitsubishi was an option which I see is no longer listed.
    • Went 6 days with no golf due to course closures here at Pinehurst. Played #8 today and surprisingly played well, 12/14 fairways, 9 GIR and 29 putts. 39/38 for a 77. The Groundskeepers built a snowman on the Par 5 6th. A few fairways still had some snow in some locations but the course was playable. Good to get out again.   But more snow is possible this Friday into Saturday.
    • Bill Haas could hit it 25 yards farther, but hates seeing the ball get really high up in the air. He feels like he has very little control over it when it gets up there.
    • Finished Spider-Man and Miles Morales. What fun games. The web slinging through the city lives up to the hype as well as knowing what it's like to have the powers of Spider-Man and the fights never got old. The story for S-M and MM were both very good and they got a lot of details of Manhattan right, although the map was off. Almost finished with God of War and did not expect it to be so good. Having your son along the whole way enhances the story so much. Next up will be Death Stranding and then Bloodborne probably. Going through the Playstation exclusives.
    • Does this answer it for you? FlightScope Speed & Acceleration Profiles - Launch Monitor, Golf Ball Tracking | Golf Simulators | FlightScope.com Find out why FlightScope golf launch monitors' speed & acceleration profiles are huge for club fitting. Check our sample data sets to see it for yourself. Or this? Oh, I gotcha now. The stand has some nice features, but mainly… I can note what notch creates a tilt of 12°, or 17° as preferred by Awesome Golf, or 16° or whatever… and then put the back leg in those notches without needing the tool. I can also do this more easily on uneven floors — in either direction — to adjust for the tilt or roll of the floor itself. If my floor slopes down and to the left, 12° with the tool won't be 12° and level with the Mevo+, so I can use the screw legs to adjust the Mevo+ to be 12°/0°.
