  2. Banned you pretty quickly. Going for yet another, I see.
  3. Money. That and doing single arms swings to train release of each arm are great to educate hands and body thru release. Understanding required motions from p6 thru p8 with short slow swings so one can do them properly is a great way to build a swing.
  4. Two things. Right arm stays in internal rotation and combined with arms not getting below shoulder fast enough the shaft gets steep and outside resulting in presenting the hosel. Rotation brings arm out so if arms don’t start working down early in transition then rotation will bring them out too much to soon requiring compensations. shaheen on spinning chest out to early. https://www.instagram.com/p/CLClWrVJYMd/ Your right arm internal versus neutral at the top Resulting steep shaft and hands out to far from rotating early without arms having worked down. FYI on camera angle. To get best vid without distortion camera needs to be directly behind the hands and pointing at the hands. Too high or low and too much left or right distorts what is being seen.

  6. Ha unintended. lessons with some one good really helps to build a good swing faster. And understanding how to practice effectively. Otherwise good resources are amg and Tyler Ferrell. Tyler has a good book out - stock tour swing and both him and amg offer pay sites with lots of good information. Certainly are others. developing a swing is easier if you chunk up the motion and do short slow swings as a staple of practice. First thing is to understand what the proper motions are that are involved. Assuming one has a good setup and fu ctuonal grip - I’d bet you don’t. Swing is a blend of body and arms - isolating part if the motion and becoming proficient then move on - how knees/ hips work, upper torso, arms, elbow, wrists. If you can take the club back to parallel and hit good shots consistently then issues start early and making full swing in practice is a waste of time Lots of moving parts. good luck. And precis1on was called Elvis by me and others at monte Chicago clinic years ago - but now it appears maybe we should find a new moniker.
  7. typically people feel handsy due to poor sequencing that leads to a flip - and more often than not the flip is the result of not just poor sequencing but also incorrect use of the trail shoulder. No one takes their hands out of the swing - good players have "educated" their shoulder/arms/wrists to perform but even they need good sequencing to have the "feel" of the hands do nothing. The shoulders shouldn't point at the ball - that would be way too much side bend and not good for the lower back in the long run. And having a good tilt of the shoulders requires turning the pelvis on a tilt - flat turn of the pelvis leads to flat shoulders (or again if pelvis is too flat but shoulders tilted then likely too much side bend from the spine, again not good). Want to feel the hand do nothing then educate your entire arms in the proper release via very short swings and even include single arms swings (especially the trail). Then work on creating a well sequenced swing with good body tilts and pressure shifts. easy peasy. No matter how you slice it the golf swing is a very complex motion - but one can certainly make it efficient which when done can make it appear simple, effortless yet powerful.
  8. Monte does facetime/zoom live lessons - I have taken one in my garage - can do it anywhere you can set up a phone - i just set my iphone up centered on my hands and far enough away that I was completely visible (i crumpled up some paper to use as a pseudo ball - just need something to swing at if you aren't at a range) - I could do down the line or face on - have seen people do them from a range, etc. Monte can record your swing, play it back etc, talk about your issue and and walk you thru an improvement, he can demonstrate, draw lines, pretty much do everything from a live lesson except hysically help, and discuss how to train etc. mine took 30 minutes but no real time limit. Others on the site have done this with him also. Might be other instructors that do this too but I am unaware of who they may be.
  9. Yep. sway right , then back left on downswing. You do shift right but as monte noted you stay there thru backswing and try to go left as you rotate down. Bit narrow stance for a driver doesn’t help. here is a good example of the shift,rotate,shift.rotate pattern that gets pressure right early and starts moving it back left around p3. There is a slight, inch, shift right off the ball to start then rotation etc. in slo mo can see his “fall” to the left. would it be reasonable to expect to train this in your own , not really, Seeing a good instructor would be a better step. https://www.instagram.com/p/CUyKWwCIjQ-/
  10. Help the op don’t get into an esoteric discussion of anatomy. I’m fine with my knowledge of what the hip joint does.
  11. Btw it is the hip joint not the hip. But then you knew that.
  12. A good example of Julian Suri working on a deeper right hip turn and a bit steeper angle in the turn of the hips. Note the knee action. https://www.instagram.com/p/BrBiHCqlCkz/
  13. The hips don't rotate - hips move forward and backward, up and down and cause the pelvis to turn. Basically you need to learn how to properly use your hips which it sounds like you currently and in the past have not. Not seeing your swing leads to just being able to give some info on how to move the knees and hips better. On my journey I suffered from back soreness and one time almost had to stop playing - that was due to xfactor lesson that told me to keep my belt buckle facing the ball through the backswing in order to create max separation of hips and torso - that had me do my own tiger moment where after a swing i found myself on my knees - took me three year and abandoning the stupidity of that lesson to recover - more typical was a bit of soreness after or late in the round due to early extension. learning to freely move my hips to rotate my pelvis has completely relived me on any issues - these videos explain the movement patterns that good swing do versus ams. And how the knees (lead knees work out toward toes with slight inward movement due to rotation, and trail knee loses a bit of bend (around 10*)) work is very important in how the hips move in addition to have a good setup and good concept of what needs to happen. other example of what happens
  14. can be numerous factors. equipment, hitting off mat versus grass, technique, . . .
  15. Ridyard is associated with John Graham who does putting videos off their short game secrets site. Also two very good putting instructors are David Orr and Phil Kenyon - think Kenyon will do video lessons and Orr has an academy in North Carolina.
  16. All the shoulder tilt needed is provided due to the trail hand being lower on the club than the lead. Adding more tilt - which would be spine tilt starts to create backswing rotation issues - AMG has discussed this in videos. https://www.instagram.com/p/CKMNiPXnJKZ/
  17. To go to zero you need to lose contact with the ground which you don’t do in a squat. Nice try though. But you said many time that there is no grf with the squat.
  18. Yep and Scott Lynn has brendon do both a counter move jump and just a squat jump in the video I posted.
  19. LOL. What I figured. Hey you are correcting the owner/ creator of myswing who develops and produces 3D motion capture systems and pressure mats so I’m in good company. you should watch the video I just posted and you can correct dr. Scott Lynn too.
  20. This video has a lot of good info on using vertical force. Caveat is to do the things in the video you need a force plate and someone knowledgeable - unlikely to be dr. Scott Lynn but would be nice.
