People have told me that they get feeling like the club is wide open, too far from inside, etc.
The left arm must rotate to rotate the club so it stays connected and the club rotates with the turn. Most people don’t do this. If your first move down is to steepen the club, then you CANNOT do this move or the shaft will get REALLY steep.
You also need to pivot/turn the club left after impact. This can also be a steepening move.
So leading with the right elbow, shallows, which allows you to rotate the left arm and turn hard left without steepening.
This is why you can’t zero out impact positions and path. You have two opposing forces creating everything…which is the way most things in the swing work.
This is why when you see Hogan with his elbows so close together it looks so good. He leads with the right elbow and massively rotates the left arm. They cancel out and produce poetry in motion.
Tiger does neither of these things very well, he is just zeroing out positions artificially and is poultry in motion. He just happens to be the finest manipulator of the golf club I have ever seen…and works his tail off.
This is a concept that needs more attention. I have seen few who understand it…even fewer who talk about it.
