We had a good discussion about laying the club down a few months ago.

After looking at Hardy, imo the whole question of laying down gets a lot clearer.

If you were playing a 2 plane LOP, I don't think you want to lay the club down.

If you were playing RIT, but made a 1 plane backswing, the club at the top would be parallel to the plane for the RIT throw, so would need to be dropped as you throw. Semantically, you might call this a laydown move, or choose to call it a drop. Hardy calls this a drop.

If you were playing RIT but took a 2 plane backswing, you absolutely need to lay the club down on a flatter plane as well as drop down. Hardy calls this a hybrid, a two plane RIT hybrid.

A perfect example, imo, of how you can't say "laying the club down is a good idea" until you have thought about how you want to release the club.

This is a feature of a lot of golf instruction, they don't properly put the idea they are talking about in the context of the swing type they mean.

As you will see if you look at Hardy's analysis of pro swings, once you know how they intend to release the club, what they do on the backswing and transition is understandable as moves necessary to get into the right place for the release they use.

I just hope someone on isg ponies up the 80 bucks soon, then this thread won't have to be just my take on Hardy.

 

do you really think the pros stand on the tee or in the fairway and part of their pre shot routine is to think about  RIT or LOP and all the other stuff to help release the club head just before they hit the shot....

No. That’s not what he’s saying. He’s saying the pros have grooved, consciously or unconsciously, a certain swing pattern, they don’t think what they are going to do of course, but video shows they are doing it. Semantics.

Just to recap. The Release is a book, the cheapest option is a Kindle version online, just over £7 GB. Comparable to the price of a couple of pro v1s.

If you like that and get into it, imo it is worth getting the videos that explain the book, they cost the 80 bucks.

Nothing to do with swing thoughts, thanks, Toph, for clearing that up.

If you are working on your swing, particulalry if you have been working and struggling for a while, and are looking for some fresh ideas that might help, Hardy is my recommendation.
