Starting feel good about this.
My whole career I have locked my right knee at impact and actually sometimes reverse rolled on the outside of my right foot. I am aware of why that happens, but have had a hard time beating it as I have only been aware of some important cause/affect concepts in the golf swing the last few years…and no one, including a few big names had a clue either.
If you go to my YouTube channel, you can see all of that from the past few years. When I long drive, I don’t care, because the fairway is huge and I have six balls. It basically happens because I pull the handle way too hard in transition and create steep hands, sometimes steep and sometimes shallow shaft and a major in to out path.
That locked right knee caused me all sorts of issues in my palying career…foul balls at inopportune times being the worst. I didn’t do it as badly the shorter the club, but the issue is just masked on shorter clubs.
I still have a ways to go, but at least I don’t feel like I have to wrestle the club on every shot to keep it from going in someone’s pool or e base of a jumping cactus.
Thanks to Tim, a reader of this blog, who made this video after his lesson today.
