  1. The Definition I think there's a misconception out there that "staying connected" means that you keep your arms (or your elbows) very close to you throughout the swing. This often manifests in a golf swing where the trail elbow stays very close to the ribs, pulls "around" the body toward or past the shirt seam, and the lead arm has a good bit of adduction, resulting in a narrow angle between the collarbones and the arm. This is not a bad literal interpretation of "staying connected." What could be more "connected" than keeping your trail elbow almost attached to your rib cage and you
  2. I recently asked @mvmac, who was familiar with what Dave and I taught, to give us a report card on what advanced players are learning from advanced coaches and how he felt we stood. Mike hasn't seen us teach much in the past four or five years, and we haven't put out a lot of videos (aside from these, of course) lately, either. So some of the things he thinks we teach date back five years or more. Before I get into the list… you're going to quickly see that most of the list is "for better players." I'll make a conscious decision a lot of the time to decide which of two slightly different
  3. I have taken some time to write this post. I am trying not to use my usual style and am trying to make it more general and readable and understandable. As many know George Gankas has risen from mediocrity to achieve sudden fame, booking his $500/hour lessons out to June - though probably not anymore with COVID-19 and California - because Matt Wolff rose to fame and because his Instagram account shows a bunch of already very good players hitting the ball hard. Now of course George has actually been teaching for 25 years and is probably almost the same guy he is now as he was five years ago
  4. i searched and didn't find anything useful. e.g. https://thesandtrap.com/search/?&q=justin thomas trail foot&search_and_or=and&sortby=relevancy you're being ridiculous. many golfers seem to push off of the right side but you refuse to acknowledge this. here's jason day's description: jack mentions pushing off the right side: and there are many other people online, pros and ams alike, who discuss getting off of the trail side by pushing with the trail foot. it's a thing people do. you may not like it or teach it but how can you disagree that it happens? b
  5. It’s been explained several times in other topics. Just because someone hasn’t posted in this thread in the last 15 minutes doesn’t mean "nobody has told you." Look it up for yourself. When you look at a pressure mat reading, pushing would spike the pressure under that foot. (Other things can do it too, like the arms coming down, which moves them from more centered to more rightward, hence the "butt cleft" seen in Grant Waite's traces, for example.) Justin Thomas being 82/18 (front/trail) is NOT an indication that he's "pushed off" with his right foot at all. The short version: you fal
  6. There are probably better ways you can create more speed. You're looking at an intricate piece that by itself doesn't have anything to do with creating speed. The foot lift thing is a result of other things occurring. In other words do the things they are doing to allows this to occur. What it illustrates, especially with more guys hitting up on the driver, is that they aren't "loaded" into their lead left/foot at impact. The vertical ground force being applied is shooting up and back towards their trail side real fast, again we're talking about driver. Justin Thomas keeps the f
  7. Those pics actually are of me - taken in my dreams. Lol That's Justin Thomas, and I wasn't advocating anyone trying to copy his positions, just that his foot is off the ground and he gets it done. Perhaps I shouldn't have asserted it is unimportant to work on the trail foot - the golf swing is tricky, and heck if I know the ins and outs. It might very well help the OP to do so, as well as me.
