    BK's club face doesn't look all that shut at the top or in transition.

    Great thread and love your detailed posts, keep them coming. I know you are an RA2 user, but have you converted to the Gravity Fit?
    Android users, beware, the Hudl app is virtually useless,, still seems fully functional for Apple users though..

    I like them both, but I am partial to the Right Angle 2. It's one of the only long game training that Butch uses with his students and he doesn't even have an endorsement deal with them so that speaks volumes.

    Finally tried the Right Angle that I bought awhile ago. WOW what a difference it makes in keeping my arms in front of me (3/4 backswing) while my core- shoulders turn a full 90*. I set it on 1/2. Takes some time to get synched up if you have been overswinging (run off) for 30+ years like me, but it makes is SO EASY to get the correct path to the ball and solid contact. I try to keep the hands no higher than my shoulder at top of swing, even shorter - left arm parallel to ground, and just turn through impact from there. WOW.

    Here a few sequences of Tiger swinging a driver and an iron from back in 1999-2000 when he was working with Butch and making his first major swing change from his 1997 Masters swing.... it got better and better leading into 2000 when had that epic year, but these are from right before that period.

    wow does he ever keep his spine angle, from address to arms parallel to ground after impact, amazing. But did it put strain on his back, I wonder.

    Tiger really had his hands more out and away from body on takeaway back then like it was adding width. He doesn't do that anymore

    Tiger also doesn't load up his right side as much either, he stays a lot more centered to the ball now; he used to get more behind the ball on the backswing with more width.

    yea, I haven't even heard that taught much atleast in recent decade to get hands more out and wide. Seems all the pro's who do that somewhat are trying to get them more in, like Rory and Adam Scott.
