Lead shoulder actually should always move up and out

 

Only after impact it should move up, in and back.

 

Yes, but like Monte said people have different perceptions, i need to move up and out from the start or i won’t get to impact

Nobody is talking about the right femur down in transition for right handed golfers. Monte has this in Drive for Dough video. I keep coming back to this feel when things go bad. It's getting that rt foot pressure during setup that i struggle with and my feet are slightly closed. Knees, hips, and shoulders OK. Looks like Adam Scott's femur does drop.

A few ironic observations about how the golf public reacts to tour players golf swings.

 

1. When a tour player has a unique aspect to his swing, everyone wants to copy it thinking it’s the magic move. DJ’s wrist, Rory’s double hip clutch, Sergio’s excess lay down, etc.

2. When someone has a swing fault hurting their swing and ball striking, they want to point to a very few players on tour who do that as reasoning for it being OK. Bubba and Daly’s long swing, Montomerie’s hip sway, Day and Koepka’s limited hip turn.

3. When it’s shown that the vast majority, or all players do a certain thing that flies in the face of conventional wisdom or long held beliefs, it’s no good and one player not doing it would prove it wrong.

 

I guess we’re all nuts to begin with for chasing a white ball with crooked sticks.

 

As The late great Robin Williams once opined, why would you want to hit it again, you’re lucky you found it after hit it the first time. (Paraphrase)

i've been struggling with keeping the left shoulder starting down with driver while still hitting up on the ball. Any tips?

 

You're screwing up somewhere else. Nobody could possibly know without seeing you swing. And hitting up on it absolutely isn't as important as most think it is.

 

you've seen my swing - hoping I have some progress to show the next time you see it ;)

Very few people above scratch are in a back swing position like Adam Scott to begin with. Like, almost nobody.

A good point

To go a step further ,golfers who want to get into a better position in their downswing should work on improving their backswing.

And an integral part of improving the backswing is setting up correctly.

Monte, you’re getting so wise in your old age.

Somebody help me out. I’ve spent a few days trying to get this “lead shoulder down not aroun†feel in transition, and am having a very hard time wrapping my mind around the mechanics of it. I can’t make it feel or look like my lead shoulder is going

 

Try this: complete your backswing and to start your downswing feel “belt buckle down” as your swing thought. Like your dropping the level of your belt buckle

Kind of like Hogan’s squat or different?

Monte might have to chime in but I don’t think so. It sounds like you have the same struggle I do with the lead shoulder. Thinking about that didn’t work for me. So, instead of thinking about my shoulder Monte had me think about “belt buckle down” to get some flexion in transition which accomplished the same thing.

 

It was a swing thought that worked better for me. Give it a try.

It's a bunch of different things. Hopefully, you only have to do 1/2 things and get them all.

 

Left arm off chest

Left shoulder off chin

"Keep back to target"

Left shoulder down and forward to left leg

Lead with right elbow

Stay in left tilt longer

Regain flexion

Dropping arms (out and forward too)

 

All of those are basically the same move. It's all how you perceive it.

 

And its good if your coach can use the different "moves" or ideas to get you to where you need to be because people learn so differently.

Go find a full length mirror to practice in front of and work on it very slowly. I would bet you will be stunned what it actually feels like to do this properly. I know I was.
