Great ball striker, great swing, but I will be redundant yet again and kill two birds with one stone.
You can’t look at stop action positions in his swing and zero them out. The leveraged right elbow, for example. Some Golfers will have bend at impact and others will be straight. It depends on body type, the amount of hip clearance…and duh…what happened in the swing up to there.
There are very few rights and wrongs in the swing, what is more important is that your swing matches.
I had a client the other day who had a very flat shoulder turn and even flatter arm swing. I tried to get him a little more vertical, to match his setup, he actually steepened the club even more than he did from the flat position. The end result was I changed his setup to match his swing and viola, he started to hit it better and feel better.
No Dustin Johnson’s Bowed left wrist, Tiger’s locked left knee, JB Holmes short hinged backswing, Bubba’s straight rear knee, high hands and arm over run, Hogan’s Bent right elbow, Sergio’s 19 year old down load lag move…and certainly not my 1992/3 massive lateral move off the ball. You can throw in Jack Hamm’s grunt if you’d like. I am sure there are people out there that literally think if you could perfect all of those moves, you could hit the ball 500 yards.
It has to match or it doesn’t work. Zeroing out positions that look pretty on great players and long hitters end up hitting ZERO good shots.
