  1. We can expand on this to show how ridiculous the premise is. Going back to the BMW Championship last year where he finished T12, he hadn't finished worse than T21 and (before this week) only missed a single cut at the Genesis a few weeks ago. Before missing the Genesis cut, his last MC was the 2019 US Open (won 4 times in 2019). He was pretty lackluster during the first few months of the 2020 Covid restart but otherwise the idea he's on some downward spiral is pretty amusing.
  2. You're more right than you think - depending on your position at the top, it might be helpful to think of shallowing the club as more of an "anti-steepening" move where the shaft pitch may not appear to decrease but it's not increasing. If you're really upright (see @glk's post on the first page) then the motion is more apparent, which accounts for some unique swings like Wolff & Furyk. Thanks for mentioning this.
  3. His torso/shoulder girdle has turned too flat, there's no width with his arms and I'm pretty sure he's slid back and put too much pressure under his trail side. A very difficult position to recover from to make, as you might say, a more "rounded" downswing.
  4. I think you're missing the point. It's quite clear from OP's swing that he's not going to improve much without modifying his swing to improve his technique - he's maxed out in that sense. But the fact he can he hit the ball with the swing he presented strongly suggests he's capable of making a much better swing, provided he learns how. It's not a mystery. Additionally, it's going to be hard for anyone to create good impact conditions from his position at the top. You're right that there's no particular position at the top that's required, but there are plenty of less than ideal ones that will
  5. Sure you could swing like an outlier but I wouldn't recommend it for the vast majority of us. Even then Wolff still has to accommodate his backswing idiosyncrasy with a good amount of trail wrist extension & lead wrist flex going into transition.
  6. Doing what you're describing will almost certainly result in the club getting stuck behind your body, likely requiring you to stall and extend, and then ultimately flip/steepen the shaft into impact. Preparing to shallow in transition just really isn't a passive move that can be done without utilizing your wrists.
  7. I don't really think it's much of an opinion that between the two ideas you mention, accelerating quickly is what you need to so. Moving the arms/hands casually in transition seems like a great thought to get your arms/hands stuck in the downswing. If this is your issue, you need more speed sooner, but of course you also need to learn how this is accomplished.
  8. just reading this is rather depressing as a longtime customer of Ables. I actually didn't know it had finally closed until reading this now, but I'm pretty sure I'd accepted the end was near end of last summer when I last bit balls there. Such a great facility and in a sense i totally understand your feeling after your last bucket - I'm sure I've been there at least 100 times in the last 10 years, always staffed by great folks. You giving serious thought to joining a club in the area?
  9. Without assuming anything, are you at liberty to explain/clarify a bit more? Or perhaps another player would be a better example to illustrate this?
  10. I joined a club just like you described in #1this spring, at a little more cost. Even better, I've no wife to tell me I can't go.
  11. Add me to the list. Chopped shaft to 44.5" last week ( from 45) and added 10g to the head. Saw immediate results. Cut off an inch from my 3W to 43", added 11g to the head and it's now back in my bag after being pulled 2 years ago. Crazy how much low-hanging fruit like this you can find on wrx.
  12. Agree with all of your observations. You're correct that I'm often missing with a pull. I strongly believe that many (not all of course) downswing issues can be helped by straightening out my address posture and backingswing - it's been tough to get everything sequenced for a much shorter backswing. Focusing on my bends/tilts has helped, so at least the parts relate in me. Thanks, I believe minding posture and tilts could be helpful as a start. Slowly whittle away compensations. so I'm clear, to internally (EDIT) rotate my shoulder is to rotate it towards my sternum? Or rather in
  13. I'm not going to attempt meaningful commentary, as I'm clearly not qualified. I think/hope most of my issues are fairly apparent. Videos were taken in late May a couple days apart. Driver: [media=] [/media] Iron: [media=] [/media] Thanks for your thoughts!
