A brick wall for me seems to be my inability to shallow out my club on the downswing. For the past couple of years, this simple idea has been my nemesis, and I feel like I've been pretty open to changing the picture: slow practice swings, video, mirror. After a fair amount work each time I set out to fix my steepness, the result seems to be: Temporary improvement in the shallowness at fast speed (after much slow speed work), but not 100% The impact always feels awkward, as I can't seem to sync my body with the club coming through this way The steepness returns over time as I play on the course- losing most, if not all, progress. Specifically, I'm trying to go from this to this: Each time I try, I am optimistic and think I can just DO IT. Make the change. So I'll stay positive this time around. My instructor has me recording my practice in slow speed from A4 to A6, then stopping there. Then completing the swing. Then doing a full speed swing. So I'll do this over and over and over, and review the video each time. I will have some time to start this today. So my questions are: Have any of you overcome steepness in your downswing before? If so, what was your experience and any tips for others? How critical is the left wrist? The right elbow? Left forearm rotation? Or could this be an issue of incorrectly starting the swing with the arms, rather than initiating from the ground up? All of the above, or it depends on each person's specific fault? I am trying to make sense of videos of various pros who do this correctly, but any tips to unlock a good "feel" for me would be welcome.
