Correct Stink The right shoulder goes into external rotation - that's gonna help stop the right shoulder raising and coming out and slinging the club over the top and away from you in transition. And the right elbow starts to work into the right side. When the right elbow is bent and the upper arm is connected to the trunk the ONLY range available to the right arm then becomes forearm rotation. It takes the entire upper arm out of play. You can rotate your forearm as hard as you want and the upper arm won't move. Hence the 'three right hands' quote.... But of course that is slightly cryptic because the speed of the right hand comes from the forearm rotating and NOT from the hand itself. When an arm is straight the entire arm will move when you rotate the forearm- forearm and upper arm. SO...via forearm rotation from the shallower downswing the right elbow gets in and the upper arm won't disturb the club face as it can't roll....and via the forearm rotation of the left arm from the shallower downswing the left armpit gets packed in and that limits the upper arm from rolling and actually starts to turn the pivot around opening the shoulders slightly. Because the hands are in tight and upper arms aren't rolling -BOOM-you can pivot yourself to death and end up accelerating and flying to club up to the finish point without disturbing the clubface whatsoever
1) right elbow tuck in towards hip, sort of forward and down?
2) right shoulder hangs back and drops?
What is this golf game you talk of?

Brad This is one of the best things I have seen occur on ISeek in a while, I hope and trust that Madam ensures that your request is met and we can all learn something from your experience in playing the game.... Might be time to try and find that old chestnut "Golf Trivia" again...
Thanks to the people who were interested enough to contact me about starting up a thread again here at ISeek
I am happy to talk about pretty much anything golf related- swing- equipment- course management- mental side- short game- practice routines
I will try answer each question whenever I can.
I would appreciate it that any insults or off topic remarks be kept somewhere else so the thread doesnt get side tracked.
Thanks again for inviting me back and I look forward to helping everyone with their game.

Good start would be to take some practice swings with the club up around waist high- closer to how a baseballer would swing a bat. Feel the roundness that swing engages. Difficult thing about golf is we look down at the ball from inside and above the line- so people tend to want to get out to the ball. There are no straight lines in golf- it is all circles and arcs that allow the straight ball and good strike to occur
Brad, I’ve had an “arms” swing in the past, but over the last few years, I’ve tried to increase the pivot and I now feel that it’s a lot better than it was.
I suspect, though, that the pivot is ‘going along for the ride’, rather than driving the swing. All show and no go, but I doubt the show is much to see.
With a good drive not much better than 200m, I’m sure that improvements to technique would yield results. Being a fat old fart, I’m never going to be able to snap my body around with much speed.
Can you provide some suggestions on how I might get the pivot to drive the swing?
Thanks for contributing to this forum. I followed your previous thread some time back and found it most helpful. Your ‘layman’s talk’ is so much more effective for most of us, rather than the tech talk of Zen and TGM.

Gonna be where clubface is pointing in relation to your path into the strike. Am not gonna get into D-Plane stuff as it is confusing to most. Pulls quite often happen also when the ball position is too far forward in the stance for the players release pattern. Move ball back a hair for starters and see what happens. If the ball starts pushing right and not drawing back then alter your feet alignment a hair left. Moving the ball back shifts the baseline of strike out to the right so you then have to aim differently... think Trevino as to how he aimed for his strong grip and ball back a little orientation and release. Aim and ball position are all about how you swing. A person who has a nice late release can therefore aim right with the ball forward and not lean the hands or shaft to get onto strike/ lowpoint- a la Snead or Knudson Dont be tied to trying to aim perfectly. Everyone will have their own optimal alignment and ball position based on their swing. As the swing gets better then the stance alignment and ball position can be changed to suit
Great post those last few Brad.
Posting a swing of mine, and just wanted to ask.
I am developing a hook to pull hook with my irons and wondering what could be contributing to that?
In the video below, I pulled the shot about 8m to the left, pin high with the PW and not a full swing. As a result of the hooks creeping in, I have found myself starting to hold off on the release and starting to block shots out to the right. Now I am just confused.
Ghetto train – get on it.
