  1. I'd be interested in hearing what you are trying to do in order to fix yourself.
  2. Swing 1 more turn, less independent arm movement.
  3. Except anyone who is not a beginner won't. You will automatically lower and transition to prevent the whiff. Which keeps the tailbone back. I am not a pro just a former steep-in-transitiopn standup flipper who now has tons room for his arms and wicked rotation. Much better once I removed the move to Thoracic flexion in transition which was my transition steepening move. As a flipper yourself, perhaps give it a couple of practice swings?
  4. If I can make a suggestion. I suggest that you try extending your thoracic spine as quickly as possible in the downswing - this will make your upper body do most of the rotation as opposed to putting your a lower back into a injurious position. It also causes your pelvis and right hip to stay away from the target line.
  5. I think you can do a lot of things wrong in a left-arm parallel backswing length. And still get away from with it. The extension of those issues into a full swing becomes a real problem. Mostly thinking in terms of those inclined to make and arms swing with very little body rotation in the backswing and those that do not extend their spine in the backswing.
  6. Extend your thoracic spine on the backswing. This will force you to put in left side Bend to ensure that your head doesn't move upwards.
  7. Not something "to do" something that happens as you regain flexion in hips and particularly spine. Not having it leads to OTT. Extend as soon as possible in backswing so that flexion can occur in transition.
  8. Good aggressive move. Caveat - not an instructor. I wonder if most most the the areas for improvement noted above could be fixed by changing the timing of spinal extension and actually regaining flexion. Try extending the upper spine as soon as possible in the backswing. That would eliminate a bit of the rightward head movement (head starts quite a way back at setup) and the end of backswing lift. Also likely to give greater R hip depth This then would allow you transition by regaining upper spine flexion. Right not you are not doing much of that and instead drop the arms behind.
  9. Try this. Only thought on backswing is extension of upper and mid back as early as possible.
  10. You regroup just prior to takeaway. Very strong left hand grip. Perhaps you are concerned with avoiding the singularity.
  11. OP asked why he was unable to hit the ball with his trial swing that has forward shaft lean. The simple answer is that the club face is wide open at impact with his trial swing. You can obfuscate that all you want, but that's the simple fact. You put him side by side with Tiger, as if the two are in a similar position at P6,. They couldn't be more different. OP has done a lot of compensation already at P6, and the club face appears to be in far better shape than it would be if he didn't. If you put OP in the same position as Tiger, with hands more out and a right pitch elbow - and with sim
  12. Because his clubface isn't open. This thread has some of the worst advice I've ever seen. You got two people who are seeing phantom open clubfaces, another one who thinks keeping your head back is a good idea, and someone else who thinks the arms are passive in the downswing. Are any of you actually any good? Totally agree. Look at the OP's and Tiger's left shoulders at P6 and notice how much higher the OP's is vs. Tiger's. The OP is forced to lose the extension in his right wrist to get the clubhead down to the ball, otherwise he goes right over it. There is not enough DOWN to his
  13. Club face wide open on DS. strengthen grip a tad. You need the motorcycle grip twist move from the top all the way to impact.
