  1. The green line is where the right hip was at address. Look at the shape of the right leg.
  2. You’re losing lag because of poor hip turn, you’re putting the cart before the horse...and working on multiple issues never succeeds. If you lagged the club from that pelvis position, you’d top it. It’s why you can’t work on it directly. Trying to deloft the club on purpose is NEVER a good idea. Thats a sway not a turn. The right hip needs to work behind you and toward the target in the second half of the backswing.
  3. Be aware of what’s right, but it’s a reaction
  4. Intellectually, it’s quite simple. 1. The downswing takes approximately .20 seconds. A conscious motor function takes about .25 seconds. So the entire downswing is a reaction, like flinching and blinking in reaction to someone throwing something at your face or trying to hit you. 2. Simple Newtonian physics. For every action, there is an equal, but opposite reaction. e.g. Ground REACTION Force. 3. That’s why anything you want happening on the downswing needs to be opposite....cast to sustain lag, keep body closed longer so it opens up more, push down
  5. Like @CasualLiesaid, it’s not a method or swing system. It’s an alternate perception on doing what elite players do in general. Some of the drills are exaggeration drills to get you there, but the fact is, elite golfers get their lead wrist flexed at some point of the downswing, regardless of grip. They UD, it’s just a matter of when. They extend, it’s just a matter of when. The easiest way, IMO, to get this done, as I show in the video, is to hinge and be neutral to slightly cuped, then UD and flex immediately as an intent to give your body more time to react as the wrists are
  6. It has to match........ I see some zorro backswings for sure, but that’s more a rush to start the downswing and never lets the entire backswing progress. Ironically, super slow backswings cause the same issue. Everyone always wants to make it about slow, smooth tempo and that wrecks the transition. It’s about Rhythm, not tempo. Most golfers struggle with a backswing that’s too slow and a transition that’s too fast. I can’t tell you how many lessons I give where people complain about getting quick and their backswing is still progressin
  7. Most pull draws in decent players are in to out. Divots don’t always tell the path story. Left divots are often in to out.
  8. This guy’s handicap is pretty low https://www.instagram.com/p/CIvgUFrlzis/?igshid=rggsub0g0erl
  9. The changing of the grip is likely good advice, but if you don’t address the hip movement issue, you’re stepping over a dollar to pick up a dime.
  10. Too far away and too bent over. Right elbow and shoulder are working the wrong way and kicking the club out early.
  11. Really no such thing as too much hip turn, only poorly rotated. People with too much hip turn are too flat, foot pressures in wrong place, etc.
  12. I was going to chime in with an example of not bowing the wrist being bad advice. “For example, if the backswing is very short, telling someone to cup their wrist is pretty bad advice. You don’t have time to go cup/bow and release properly and hit the ball straight.” Your backswing is very short because of no hip turn and then the arms get too far across the chest. If you increased vertical hinge, which I would find necessary to improve arm to chest angles, that would change the wrist angles. More hip turn with better hip position and more verti
  13. They tested me several years ago and said 165 with 170 max. I asked if there was any wiggle room, any exceptions. They said not really. When I put up 200, you should have seen the facial expression. TPI has great info and they provide a great service to golf, but they are not as infallible as they pretend to be.
  14. This is the reason you always have to discuss two things. 1. What you’re actually supposed to accomplish. 2. What ridiculous feels get you personally there. Problem is #1 is usually the wrong discussion, so #2 works for a day and does more harm than good.
