and it is an extremely important issue.
This is an issue that doesn’t get explained enough. Which is ironic because so many amateurs have this problem.
Coming OTT, cutting across the ball, hitting slices, etc.,
be fixed by trying to swing more inside/out, to right field, first base, dropping club in the slot, etc.
Doing things like this are at best a temporary band aid and at worst will cause the shanks and hooks.
The OTT problem is caused by taking it too far inside on the takeaway which necessitates coming OTT to get the club out from behind you…
improper weight shift
setting up too far right (for a right hander)
Forcing your arms/hands out to the right is just a recipe for disaster. You need to find the reason for the bad swing path and fix that problem, not forcing the club out there.
