Just had a couple of lessons lately and working on some old chestnuts as to be expected. I used to draw the ball mostly however that was through hands and an inside path. Over the years probably got a little less flexible or something else changed. So now I have a very slight out to in path on more of my swings which has sometimes promoted a fade. Other times a pull/hook depending on hands. Noticed in one of the drills that the coach filmed that the clubface is quite open. Interestingly I go back with it shut but I seem to have a bit of a hold off release in this drill. I really like some of the positions (not that position golf is wise) I'm getting into in the drill though. So I'm wondering do I literally just think about a bit more bowed left wrist rotation / bent right wrist through impact? When I think of that feeling, I can get it going really well, but sometimes it just over does it and that's the left going lefter result. Thoughts?
Oh, yes, I'm aware of bent left arm in backswing and I do stand up a little through that area too. Trying to work on rotating down into the right leg rather than standing up. Not quite sure why I do this and if it's the chicken or egg. Also my really bad trait that pi$$es me off deluxe is the right leg pushing up and out and the body sliding laterally way too much starting pretty much at beginning or even before the downswing. Really need to figure out a way of killing that off as it is sending me around the freaking bend!! In the pics here this is a good swing as such for me.
Excuse the clumsy method of uploading images. Took pics of frames from a video. Would be thrilled to bits with the last pic showing bottom of arc if only the clubface was a little squarer. Grip is pretty strong too. So it's as if I'm really holding off release. Interestingly we noticed that DJ is really doing this now. Err....in no way am I drawing a connection to him for the record. ;-)
