For those that have seen my short game video know that stalling the trail arm, not keeping it moving, not getting it forward enough, etc., is why these shots generally happen.
It is not a stretch or rocket science to say that a backswing that is too long will contribute to this problem.
What I have not made clear in the past is those that get too wide in their backswing will also have issues. Hands working too far away from the target and/or body in the backswing will make the distance the arms and hands have to travel to get back to the ball too great for most to do it correctly.
The two signs you are doing this are lack of wrist set and a gap seen between the trail arm and the body face on. Obviously one solution is to allow the wrists to set more, but the other is not to allow the trial elbow to venture away from the body.
Those of you who are foaming at the mouth wondering how I can say this when I campaign against over connection and drill putting things under the arm pits…it’s a pitch.
Take a face on video of yourself if you are having problems. If your Rams and the club shaft are nearly a straight line at the end of the backswing, or if there could be a contest on The BIg Break of trying to hit balls between your trail arm and your body…stop that.
