  1. A close examination of his takeaway shows the problem in that his hands were coming inside too quickly throwing the club onto too flat of a plane and limiting his true arc width which means that his connection was lacking in the early backswing leading to a downswing stall of the lower body, swing out to right field, and lack of compression. The "stone skipping" drill restored some actual true width to his backswing and allowed him to release through the ball.

  2. Jim Powell here.
    As he is nearing the top of his backswing is when he should start his left side moving. Transitioning to the downswing he should throw the club down to the ball. The face will square up after the left side has moved toward the target. Using the feel of skipping a rock is fine. That does help in the downswing. The key in my opinion is to start the left side just before the downswing starts. Just let it happen. One other thing feel your right shoulder being back. Probably to much info here.

  3. The golfer in question ends up with a flying right elbow, which surely isn’t to be recommended! Before and after this drill he also collapses his left leg in the follow through.

  4. I'm a natural lefty who golf's right. Any drills in using left arm for a drill. Such as a Frisbee drill on the swing or a backhanded tennis swing? I will try this drill anyway.

  5. Is there a conflict in modern golf instruction concerning how and how much the shouders should be open at impact? In this golfer's example, the corrected swing was an early, very open shoulder position during impact. In Dr. Kwon's analysis based upon scientific measurements of ground forces in the swing, the shoulders should be slightly closed before coming into impact and then opened much later in the impact interval. He advocates a shift motion wherein even very early in the downswing the shoulders are still closing. I recall a video by Gregg McHatton that advocated the same thing, the closed shoulder position being carried into the beginning of the downswing resulting in their opening much later than is demonstrated in the golfer in this video. It seems the application of pressure into the ground by the feet of the golfer at the correct time and in the correct directions makes for a more powerful delivery of the club through the hitting area. It may be argued that the early opening of the shoulders dissipates the full amount of power that could be delivered at tmpact.

  6. In my case, this drill will not fix everything wrong with my swing, only a part of it,,, still have to work on Grip,Alignment, Balance,weight shift,due in part to my Age, body type and flexibility, but the concept is good

  7. He is still pulling with the hands in transition. He doesn't lead with the "step" as Austin and you suggest. You can see this by the big separation in his elbows at lead arm parallel in the D.S. You can play this way but it will be a struggle just a different one then he had before. He needs to transition earlier using the " step" before the attempt at the " throw".
