I’m going to hate myself in the morning.    ‘I’ve been around Trevino a few times.  I did an outing with him, saw him at PGA West all the time and he actually used me to hustle a big donation t

No. You discuss it.

Well I mean Hogan had to use an extreme weak grip and other secrets to prevent his hook problem that he struggled with. More you swing flat and have the clubhead travel more rounded or shallow, higher chance for hooks is my experience.
 

I think it’s kind of funny in regard to the craze about getting the clubhead underneath hand path for a torque that assists in closing the face. Most good players are trying to prevent the face closing, I know I don’t want any forces adding to my club face closing on me, I want less torque especially when you are strong and I’m swinging very fast.

When I tell them to cast and come over the top, they want to run, but when club head speed goes up and path neutralizes...they say hmmm?!

By cast and come ott do you mean cast and turn to neutralize the inside cast? I’ve never heard you say come ott so this is new to me.

Keep the right shoulder higher, left lower and swing more left?

I understand  new measuring devices on the market today like Henry Ford might have understood precision emission standards.  


Allow a question, is the 14 degrees measured and divided somehow like 7* on each side of the baseline like  7* in and 7 * out,  or 12* in 2* out,  10* in 4* out or other combinations totaling 14* etc., is that what's spit out.     14* in, zero out, seems easily doable, where does the "in" start to be measured?

Assuming measured from a lm, then 14* means sweet spot/ club head  traveling 14* right of the target line at impact.    And that is a lot.

For perspective, is right of the target line the player's side of the line?  What is an average out then if it's 14* in, maybe 2* out?  Where does measuring the in start?

Independent of whether player is righty or lefty.    Direction of club head relative to target line.   Don’t follow your question.   It is 14* to the right at impact.    In to out typically refers to swing plane - the slanted hula hoop.

see deplane.

 Got it, I think, so the club head isn't crossing out and over the target line?

Yes to first two, no to the last.    Swing left is a result - every righty ends up swinging left but this is typically a reference to the handle moving left with the rotation of the body - folks that stall don’t swing left and trying to do so is just goi g to create more issues.

It can be crossing over.   But the important point is the direction it is traveling at impact.   As noted in the video moving right on the downward side and left on the upward side of the plane.     How the golfer angles this plane during their swing determines where it will cross the target line.   Someone would have to swing completely inside the target line to never cross.

I hit some nasty low hooks for a period. Did my do diligence and figured out what was causing me too get stuck. You can't drop the right shoulder down if you're going to shallow.  If one is going to shallow then they need to have a good understanding of what match ups are required. Once I understood that I had to balance the steepening and shallowing elements in my swing I was back on track. So the wrists or leg work shallows the club and the right shoulder staying high and moving out brings it back on plane.

For what is is worth, the more I shallow it, the more fade-biased I get. Better shaft angle=better pivot=more left path

This was me when I showed up on Monte‘s lesson tee several years ago.

Monte, could you extrapolate on this and explain why this is so?

Hypothetically, if you “over shallow” the club correctly with hands, wrists and arms, the only chance to hit the ball is to pivot extremely well and stay in left tilt for an extended period of time.  Have to move the bottom forward to not fat it, etc.  This done well makes it easier to promote a proper left Path and fade.  Poor left path is where myth of fade going shorter than a draw.  See DJ.

Sorry for being so obtuse, but how do you “overly shallow” the hands or more importantly what feelings or things should I be trying to do to get this action?

That’s the point....if you’re doing it correctly, you really can’t, because your body will react and prevent it.

 

Shallow early, steepen late.
