    Anyway, the lawnmower feel you did not like is exactly what the pro who gave me lessons suggested with me, with respect to my trail arm (my left arm – I play lefty). Since I have focused on that – my scores have dropped into the 70s, my distance has gone up 1 full club, and I am playing the best golf of my life.

    My point? There isnt 1 fix for all swings. Whatever was going wrong in my swing and takeaway, the lawnmower feel with the trail arm fixed it and I will never get away from that – it has led to better golf for me.

    Would you agree there is no such thing as a blanket statement or drill for everyone?

    • It can engage with your left hand index finger in three ways – 1. overlap, 2. interlock, 3. not at all
      I prefer the overlap because the interlock is too restrictive and upsets how my right elbow folds and unfolds.
      The baseball grip is not at all and is anatomically superior to the other two orientations.
