(I added more to yesterday’s post so scroll down.)
It is that simple. Doesn’t matter if it’s a beginner, or Frank, the universal thing is the arms need room to rotate and connect to the body.
You need room in the setup and spend the whole swing creating more room…or at least keep the room you start with.
Think about every solid setup and swing concept. They all either directly or indirectly create room for the arms to rotate and be connected to the body/turn.
Too close to the ball…no room. Too far from the ball, can’t rotate and stay connected.
On and on.
This is why concepts like swinging to right field eventually get people in trouble. It leads to the arms getting away from you.
As far as Frank yesterday, things really got good on the back 9. We did nothing but work on a routine that would help him get into his setup.
As far as those who suggested that he be target oriented to get into his setup…that doesn’t work for him. He has to be looking where his body is aiming to get it right and focusing on target first doesn’t work for him. I could write a college dissertation on how Frank gets setup properly, but just thinking target does not work for him. Doesn’t work for me either.
