  1. Knees movement is important toward rotating the pelvis on a tilted angle - left knee out toward toes (the pivot will bring is slightly inward) and right knee slightly straightens - this causes the right hip to work back and up and the left hip to work down (think left foot pushes ground away from target line and right foot pushes toward the target line - this reverses in the downswing) and cause the center of the pelvis to work slightly back from setup (or maintain where it was) - getting the left hip to swing down and around will move the pelvis center forward in the backswing guaranteeing ea
  2. Yeah a shut face at the top doesn't lead to hooks or require a lot of rotation - it does require less motorcycle movement and if one does more motorcycle then it will require being more open. Tyler has a good video on grip strength to sternum location with a short preview video on his youtube site - gets across the main points - the longer version requires membership (or free trial) to his golf smart academy site)
  3. Both ribcage and hip centers move slightly off the ball in the backswing before both moving slightly forward of where they started by top of backswing - moving the hips and keeping the ribcage back is not what most elite swings do - upper body hang back is not what you want - with shorter clubs this stacked relationship stays pretty much the same and as the club lengthen secondary tilt is added especially with the driver. Have no idea if hanging back while moving hips laterally will lead to hip pain - a good doctor doesn't need to play golf to understand if a particular motion could be
  4. You seem to miss the point. Sasho even mentioned Hideki too. The issue is what creates the largest average net force on the handle - people have individual limits - so Sung Jae and Hideki can create larger net forces than Zach even with his fast backswing - but Sasho said you need a longer hand path or apply more average force over the current hand path (or both). So Zach is pretty much getting as much out of his swing as he can relative to his backswing so he'd need to look for ways to increase the average force if he wanted to gain speed. This is just like increasing the vertica
  5. Give the brain a week off and and you find out how much you've retained. That said, get that fitting and then get that online live lesson with Monte as soon as you can afterwards. You can continue on your own but like pretty much all of us it will most likely be a long, frustrating struggle - life is too short - a lesson with a good instructor speeds up the process, a lot.
  6. His issue is lack of depth - causes him to drop his arms behind him in transition to shallow and gets path a bit too much in to out. If he cast without dropping arms his pivot would take him pretty much out to in with release issues. Sure Monte will fix him up.
  7. You have bigger fish to fry - like practically zero hip turn - you need to address pivot before worrying about wrist conditions at this point.
  8. Those are nonsense points not good - plenty of tour pros with bowed wrists at the top - DJ, Rahm, Morikawa to name just 3. Chunking isn't going to hurt the wrist bowed,flat or cupped - but hitting something like a root, rock etc especially can no matter the wrist condition.
  9. Get the trail wrist extended and what the lead wrist looks like it looks like. forcing a cupped, flat, or bowed lead wrist is making things more difficult .
  10. I got the club head behind my hands early too. lead to a flat shaft backswing with a steep move down coupled with EE and a flip. Iteach had me do the stick drill - put an driveway marker into the butt end of the club and do as you describe - keep it touching my left side until p2 then slide it down my left leg and have the stick point somewhere between the ball and the toes at p3 - he has recently posted a video on putting it onto the right side so you start with the arms pretty close to where they would be at p2. Todd Casabella has a couple of ways to approach this too.
  11. shoulder do turn and not rock. but more often issues are created from rotation of the forearms - under twists or over twist. The claw is effective in reducing twist of the trail forearm - it presets the forearm pronated making it hard to further rotate it. heck even the wrists can get involved but not likely on path. setup can also play a big role - having shaft more vertical with lots of ulnar deviation in the lead wrist can stabilize the left arm and make it harder to roll it. So many variables. good aid is the visio putting template. a while back
  12. what i see. takeaway is not the issue with flat - after p2 is when you pull the right elbow behind you instead of letting it rotate external as it bends. Going external will also get the right arm to come up more and off your side. That's why (getting elbow behind ) you see a lot of bicep of right arm at the top. Here is an example of right arm motion coupled with getting shaft more vertical with right arm staying more in front. https://www.instagram.com/p/CLP1fdHiPZR/ Your right arm trails the pivot a bit in downswing so your release is a bit of a late
  13. Cause announcers have a lot of time to fill and say plenty of other inane things.
  14. Rather than repost here go see my last post in the how to get better at golf Thread. Think you’ll find it interesting.
  15. Iain Highfield has tons of good stuff on learning and performing. see game like training site. youtube site instagram too. Spacing, Variability, Challenge. Also important to have learning aids that make you do the work - he who does the work, does the learning. Sample from new book How_to_practice_golf_-_Download_.pdf
  16. Not failure but in learning motion research has been done on the benefits to learning new motion patterns by errorful training - that is intentionally doing motion incorrect as well as correct. In golf an example would be to take the club away too inside, then too outside, then just right (Goldilocks drill). Or if practicing distance control say 50 yards, hit one 55 then 45 then 50. This doesn’t work for learn math, lol
  17. Need to create a long flat spot. Monte's advice of hitting off of asphalt/concrete is a place to start or find a really bare, firm tight lie off of dirt. Can open the face etc and still do this with a high bounce wedge. iteach with 14* bounce wedge
  18. Changing motion patterns is just not that easy.
  19. If you have the balls to do it, then this is a go to drill for the range https://www.instagram.com/p/CLIG_Tal7uk/
  20. I go through similar patterns myself and probably always will as long as I continue to play - my body pivot has been easier to be consistent (though even there I fell back on not extending well with my hips and toros recently) but I have to pay attention to my right arm cause I too used to bend it and get inside. Heck, I have to pay attention to my arms/wrists more than anything else - just like pretty much every golfer. From where you started you've come a long, long way.
  21. That is the rotation you need. That is making a full turn with the ribcage etc. Yes, you have gotten away from setting the wrists early and caused a float load pattern. But the journey to improvement is filled with up and downs - lots of moving parts and it is not untypical that getting something in the right direction can have others things revert. Keeping the right arm straight can get you to get arms too inside - i went through the same pattern - too inside, not inside, just right - this isn't going to come together in a few sessions, in a few weeks. You get what a
  22. Just need to extend the right wrist in backswing - feel that waiter tray thingee. Whatever your left wrist ends up looking like at the top - flat, extended, bowed - it looks like - not going for a look. The unhinge in release is important too. Wouldn’t ignore monte’ s catch on the knee too. Small changes but when you have a solid motion the tweaks are typically small - not that they won’t take time to make a habit.
