I have gotten some emails and a response on GolfWrx that say that my take on tilt is great for driver, but you can’t “get compression” (a term I hate) with an iron if you have tilt.
Well, THE EXACT OPPOSITE is true. If you are not tilted, even with LW, your arms have no room to swing, your hips will stall and your hands will not be able to stay ahead of the club and “hit down” on the ball.
Yes, a cast is what you get when you are straight up and down or tilted forward.
Even to hit a knockdown or punch shot, you still have spine tilt, your hands and body are just farther forward to take the loft off the club.
Look at this picture and tell me you don’t need tilt to “compress” an iron.
Can we please use the term trap? 😀
