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.

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.

    • This will sound like a really stupid question, but I've never been there, so I don't know. Does Carnoustie have fairway watering? The reason I ask is the contrast between the baked, brown fairways and the lush, "slow" greens! I would find it hard to believe that they don't, being that they are in the Open Championship rota. It just reminds me of a course where I used to play in a league that had water for tees and greens only. The first year we joined, a fellow member told us, in May, "Enjoy it now, guys! It'll never look this green again!" By this time of year and through August, it looked a lot like Carnoustie does now!
    • I admit I'm overgeneralizing a bit, but for the most part the USGA is more active in how they set up a course which is why they tend to draw criticism when something is messed up. I think it's unrealistic for the R&A to water the entire course over a long enough period of time to seriously affect playing conditions, so it's a bit of a stretch to say they chose to let the course dry out. If anything you can say they chose to let the course go brown, since they probably could have watered enough to get the grass active, though I'm not certain that would be good for the turf in the long run. They did water the greens but they're still pretty firm as evidenced by the amount of balls that rolled through them.
    • Played 9 holes today,  Shot pretty well. Stuck with trying to aim set up better. For now it feels like I am aiming by body left and my club face is pointed right.  Then I focus on making a short backswing. Overall, I am happy with the shots. Short game was pretty solid as well (60%). Should have been a tad higher. I three putted from the fringe two times. I wasn't solid on putts inside of 10 FT. 
    • I don't know if either tour would want that: they'd each have half the number of playing opportunities. I don't see a lot of people making that argument here. I think they're starting to understand that sponsor exemptions are special cases.
    • I am not one who pays alot of attention to pga events. That said, I did tune in to see how the Lady did against the boys. I believe she wound up at +6. I hope she plays better tomorrow.  As I posted before, I have no problem with an LPGA player occasionally playing in a PGA event. This event is perfect for a female, since all the bigger names are playing in The Open. It's all about generating interest in the game.  I don't put much stock in the "she's taking away a spot from a guy" argument. Some of those guys playing, are probably taking away a spot from someone more deserving.  I think some day, some where, viewers will be able to watch a combined LPGA/PGA event take place. The girls will play from their tees, and boys from theirs. Two separate tournaments played at the same time, on the same course.
