And @woodzie264, I'm talking about how your arm stops adducting, and you show me a video where your arms finish in front of your chest? 

🙂

Hahahah - in my vast ignorance of the golf swing, I thought @boogielicious’s recommended drill was aimed at improving my chicken-winging. 
 

wait...

are you more concerned about the left arm chicken wing or the right arm not adducting?

sorry. I thought I was taking steps to address the issue!

Can you make a "normal" looking follow-through? At any speed? It's not that important, more of a curiosity than anything. It's not like Lee Westwood and Jordan Spieth don't make a chicken wing work.

I’ll review some swings to see what it should look like and then replicate with slow swing mapping.

I don't want slow swings. Just swing a club in the air, don't hit anything. Do you chicken wing those?

@boogielicious, critiques before I start working on this?

While my weight transfer to left foot is ok (I think), in some of the earlier ones, I think I my upper body weight seems to be leaning backwards. Is that ok? I think the latter ones look a little better

Sorry about the haziness...lens must have been foggy or something

I think the motion looks pretty good there. Weight transfer is good. I would push your left hip a bit further forward at setup to get more secondary axis tilt to start. Keep doing this as a warm up and film it.

Yeah, meh. He's deeper than Scott, so he's supposed to return even deeper than that? Why?

Plenty of PGA Tour players have less deep lead arms on the downswing than the backswing.

🙂

For me that move set the feel for moving towards the ball, so hip thrust and yank upwards and weird finish.

Yeah, I suspect you may not have been as deep as he was, either, on the downswing. The hip thrust stalls the hips out and helps keep the club as inside as it can be.

You should come to Sand Valley with us. Both of you.

Sand Valley is super tempting but if I'm gonna travel Portland to Florida I feel I might as well go all the way. Portland to Scotland :-D

Part of the reason for the chicken wing (which, again, I think you're over-estimating the importance of - you read too much into my curiosity, I think, because it had more to do with rotation rates and SPEED), is that you're creating virtually no axis tilt at impact:

So you chicken wing a bit to help get the club out of the ground.

To get rid of the chicken wing (not because of how it looks, but because of what it's doing), you'd want to:

  • create more axis tilt (hips/weight more forward latter half of the downswing)
  • let your arms speed past and overtake

The bold was more what I was asking about, not the chicken wingy nature. In other words, a bit more like Westwood, and a bit less like Spieth (and I'm specifically including Spieth to show you that it's not about the "looks" here but the functionality/how it works). You're close to Spieth here, but he does some other things with a weaker grip, etc.

I see, point taken

At a loss right now with my swing. A few weeks ago, shot one of the best 9s of my life then played twice this past we and looked awful. No consistent miss, just all over the place. Went to range today and equally as bad. I suppose I should video a swing. Just a frustrating game. 1 step forward, 2 steps back

I shot an 87 and a 79 on consecutive days, with the 79 being on a harder course. What does that mean for next weekend? Absolutely nothing.

Don’t overthink it. Sometimes you just have bad rounds.

First videos in a while. Haven’t been to a course in over a month. Had a few bad rounds and wanted/needed a break. Figured I’d video a few swings tonight just to look at things. Admittedly haven’t worked on anything since I last played. Last PP was straighter Right elbow.

    • Wow. Matthew Wolff plus 13. Would not have expected it. 
    • Day 580: Spent about 20 minutes working on setup and backswing with 6 iron and driver. Slow swings.
    • Scheffler put the Gr in Grand Slam.
    • After a great drive on a long par 5 I found myself 237 to the front into a 5 to 8 mile an hour breeze.  No 3 wood in the bag, I tried to hit a low running draw with my 5 wood.  Overcooked it and hit a tree well short and left, bouncing backwards into ankle deep rough. Got lucky and found the bright red Vice Pro nestled way down in the rough, 101 yards out. Took a mighty slash at it with my recently purchased 44 degree Cleveland CBX wedge I got because I wasn't happy with my OEM Titleists ability to spin the ball.  The ball came out high and straight at the pin. Hit 3 feet short of the hole. Stopped 6' behind it. In an unusual turn of events I made the putt. Best bird of the season thus far.

Lie Static Address... The GEARS definition: We've discussed rate of closure in another topic, here: A lot of things can affect rate of closure. There are tour players with high rates and low rates. It doesn't seem to correlate to accuracy. For amateurs, high rates of closure (in combination with other factors) could indicate other flaws in the swing, but there's probably better ways to measure and identify those flaws anyway. Like spin rate on a launch monitor, I don't think closure rate is meant to be evaluated in isolation.
