I don't know. You're the only one who seems to have this problem. Your browser is listed among those with < 0.2% of the strings detected ("Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0" from https://techblog.willshouse.com/2012/01/03/most-common-user-agents/).

It works just fine here on multiple platforms.

Are you at work or at home? At work, instagram and all that is blocked so I can't watch these either. At home or on my phone, they work just fine.

All jokes aside. I recently found out that a short pause, or maybe the pause itself is more a feel than it actually is a pause in reality, helps me immensely on my backswing posture as it mentally breaks down the back and downswing for me. 

 

Before that I was concentrating so bad on shallowing the downswing that my backswing was way too shallow too. 

 

I got nothing on that guy though :-D

I played last week with a guy at my club with a serious hesitation, actually a full stop, at the top. I played with him in the past and he struggled with the game, but he played great last week. He says it has changed his interest in the game and his handicap is about half of what it was just last year. Even the Pro (we use the same guy) doesn't know how he does it but it's working for him as long as he gets it to the right spot.

I started adding a pause at the top of my swing at the start of this year. I had a habit of rushing the downswing, now i pause, shift my weight then swing. I think a lot of it s psychological but it has really helped me.

I'm most impressed by the guy's contact there. I should shank the crap out of that ball if I had that pause.

Hahaha I love the reaction!!! Hideki does the same thing and then the ball ends up in a great spot.

Hilarious. I'm afraid to even try a brief pause at the top, but it is fun to watch Matsuyama's swing. He happened to be on the driving range when I walked by after his Fri round at the BMW last week, first time I've seen his swing in person (vs TV).

I should post some recent swings as I started doing the pause I dunno if it's because of watching the video, got away from it though, prefer a no pause transition. Video gets into your subconscious! Watch out.
