…tell my family to sue Jim McLean…lol
The number of people who don’t want to free up their hip turns on the backswing as it will prevent coil and reduce their x-factor…
He did in fact say later on after releasing his x-factor book that it’s not about restricting hip turn.
However, it’s like a newspaper printing on the front page that some politician is a racist, then printing a retraction on page 15 a week later in fine print their source meant he likes to drive cars really fast.
Nobody sees that.
These zeroed out positions like lag, x-factor, returning hands to setup plane, shaft lean, vertical shoulder turns, covering the ball, swing plane, etc.
They are nothing more than stop action, 2D positions that are results of a good setup, good backswing and a well sequenced transition.
You try and achieve these things with something missing, injury and bad golf result.
