Tomorrow is Steve Stricker’s swing and Wednesday is a video about how to make a proper shoulder turn and how there is no need to restrict hip turn if you do the shoulders properly. Wednesday’s video might even be more helpful than today’s.
Remember when watching this video. It is an attempt to explain things in a different light and get you to use feel to improve your swing, rather than attempting hit positions, implement fixes and most especially fads.
I am trying to simplify your understanding of plane and release…and why some of the more popular cliches and catch phrases are obviously bad.
I also suggest seeing how some of your swing issues get you off plane and out of position. You don’t need to tee up the ball like I did. Just take your normal swing and stop at all different times, then stand straight up and down like I did in the video and see where you are.
One especially I forgot to display is the “completing of the back swing or turn.” Any of you who actively work on this will get a real eye opener on how out of position this gets you by extending your arm swing well past your shoulder turn.
It is very important you understand that I am not suggesting that you try and swing perfectly on plane and get the club face and arm movements as perfectly as I show in the video. The object of this video is for you to understand what a proper release and being on plane feels like, so if you are too far off by implementing something funky…stop doing it and get down to simple swing basics of feeling the club in natural positions.
I may do another one of these and display several fads and where they get you. Leave a comment if you want me to do that and what fad you’d like to see.
