What drives depth in BS as the arms working in isn’t the answer? Is it the left shoulder down? Is it the rotation of the right hip? Is it the rotation of the left forearm? I’m sure it is a combo in some sense but which predominantly leads the depth?

    you can rotate your left arm and still have no depth..or left shoulder down. Right hip definitely rotating back helps but you want depth and width together..not just depth. So you have to turn you whole body to the side..i.e you are trying to turn your whole posture in the incline to the side....then raise left arm with rotation to above and behind the bottom of the back of the neck whiles maintaining width.

    Notice the side turn, remember your spine is in the back of the body..so you have to displace your whole body to the right of the spine and to the left of the spine on the downswing to get natural depth whiles maintaining radius et al. Arms rotated but still in front of the turned body...see the gap between his toes and hands...so the best player of our generation by has freedom, width and depth...talk about having it all. I hate the guy. You don't see his arms abducted to his chest do you?

    You can create more depth by compressing the lead arm against the ribcage and consciously turning that ribcage more.

    So what is the feeling you concentrate on as you have your left shoulder turn down, your trunk turning to the right, your hips getting deep into the back pocket, and your arms lifting while remaining in the center of your trunk.

    what gets those pieces working in sequence?

    It isn't the feel, per se, it's where you get too and as long as that's correct what you feel vs what I feel could be polar opposites. But if we end up in the correct spots for our swings then so be it

    If you’re working on depth the last thing you want is to think about your arms lifting. You want less arm rotation and more body rotation to get depth

    I’m not talking arm runoff but rather the small amount of lift while staying in front of the chest

    Do the turn only first and then see where your arms are. I try so hard not to lift my arms but they don’t listen. Lifting my arms is a lazy way of getting a false turn. Much less effort than actually getting that right shoulder behind my head. Try left knee over toes and right shoulder back or left knee over toes and hip back and up(feel like there is a band from your left knee to your right hip and you stretch it vertically as much as possible)

    40% of our brains are not dedicated to our hands - the motor cortex has a large portion dedicated to the hands (never have seen a number put to it) but the motor cortex is far from 40% of the brain itself. The brain controls the hands and a good portion is not just movement but sensory, you know feedback from touch. The brain controls body movement not the hands.

    And again I’d say don’t want to lift at all especially if you’re working on depth
