As the title says, ive always suffered with staying connected, but in my quest to gain that ive gotten very narrow on the backswing

 

Anyone know of any drills to achieve both? Cheers

Are you talking about your upper arms to your body? You could try the glove under the armpit drill.

Yeah im quite good (feel quite good) at staying connected. If i feel both arms connected well i maintain the width but chunk it a bunch, left arm connected i shank it a bunch, right arm connected i hit it quite cleanly but get narrow at the top

 

I prefer the right arm feeling, it stops that arm getting stuck on the downswing and gets me some decent distance, but the narrowness is making it a bit streaky

 

(As a side note from your analysis of my swing i hit the range last night and steeper shoulders definately tightened my dispersion)

They're kinda opposite terms. The right elbow in particular will have to come off the ribs a bit to feel "wide."

Aren't you working on something from your Member Swing topic?

I think of right arm connected more in terms of the pitch elbow feeling. It is discussed in the thread below.

My instructor, who posted this video in this thread, has a really good drill for this. The feel for me isn't staying connected per se . It is more that my right arm is pushing against my left hand and that keeps my right elbow in the proper position to start the down swing. When your right elbow stays in the 'pitch elbow' position, it helps stop early release of your club hinge or casting. Flying elbows can get stuck behind the body and cause lots of problems.

    • Adding tackling to golf could make things interesting...
    • Rugby League (not Rugby, that means Rugby Union) isn't really like American Football, but it is a faster and tougher game and some of the players only wear very light padding. Most wear none. Do not mistake "Rugby" for Rugby League. My point is that if you think he's talking about tackling and you look up Rugby you'll see Rugby Union, which is a running and passing game. They don't tackle like in League. I'm not making a comment about American Football. I love it.   
    • No - but if you said that the article said that the vaccine rather than the virus caused these issues it would be shared around the vaccine skeptics within seconds. None of them would read it and it would definitely qualify as "research".
    • Day 79.  Got video today, I have to process to upload to evolvr.  I did a wall drill on video and also did an attempt at a slow swing with a 6-iron on video;  did some practice with each prior to filming. 
    • I want to see them try to turn that into a "Get the Vaccination" TV commercial.
