The videos and screenshots below are before and after in one lesson. They were taken about 45 minutes apart. This golfer had a common problem. He thought he was over the top, but actually just had his shaft too vertical on the way down. A common misconception and it’s not semantics and I will talk about this more. He was told the common cliches by many…and I mean many.
Swing to right field, drop it in the slot, fire your hips and let arms be passive and drop….blah, blah blah.
His hands are on plane most of the downswing. Crazy you say? Then you are not looking at it properly, but don’t feel bad, most don’t
“Get closer and get your hands deeper at the top,” was what I said.
Huh? People call that shaft steep coming down and getting closer makes it steeper would be the common response…I’ll have more on that, as well.
I told him to do nothing different on the downswing. Just get closer, get hands deeper (I put his hands in the ball park where they should be and stepped aside) and just hit the ball.
