…how to hit that bomb without tearing my shoulder up.
I did discover the importance of knowing that you are getting that left shoulder behind the ball and you are making a false turn when you are not and think you are….duh.
Took some videos of my swing on chips, pitches, 48″ driver and stuff in between. Experimented doing some things slightly wrong to compare.
You can make a huge lateral move off the ball and not get your left shoulder behind the ball. You can’t reverse pivot and get your left shoulder behind the ball.
Therefore, by the transitive property, if you get your left shoulder behind the ball (and throw in balanced properly), you are likely not making too much of a lateral move, nor reverse pivoting.
…and likely making a big turn properly.
