The bending action of the right arm in the golf swing is an extremely important element to a good swing. Often times, we can’t do what we want with the club because we’ve positioned the right arm in such a way that doesn’t leave us any choice but to move the club poorly.

    Might be interesting to show a right arm skeleton instead of a left arm if you are going to talk about right arm bend.

    I liked it. Thanks.
    Might be interesting to see a pro vs am pitching – what are the pros doing from 60 out to fire the ball in low and hard with spin?
    Thanks

    I think this is deceptive in focusing on one aspect. 1 the pro greater bend at address may well be because of greater shoulder slope. 2 With the pro hands high at transition the r elbow can only be less bent as the left arm is straight. With the am a high hand position is only achieved by flexing the left arm i.e. it is artificially high and the right elbow flexes accordingly. 3 the shoulder turn is much less. This it appears to me is the old correlation is not causation without real analysis of process.

    nteresting…. and in the BS the Pro is wider while the Am is compact. But in the DS the Pro trail arm is tighter while the Am is disconnected.
    The Ams have it reversed …. lol

    As a one-time baseball player, I have battled over-the-top forever in my golf swing.

    Also, I am now 67, and have moved to a rather compact swing. Above all, I want a balanced stance with weight on heels for full shots.

    In my takeaway, the right elbow hinges smoothly as I rotate to the top. Then, my downswing starts by dropping the hands slightly, triggering a nice right hip turn and hit a fairly high draw.

    I may be losing our on distance a bit, but I have decent control.

    I also fear that the barely bend right elbow would result in a slide on the takeaway, rather than a rotation.

    Am I missing something?

Shallowing the Club: Two Moves to Avoid (Part 1)

It’s the move we all want in the downswing… and rightfully so. Shallowing the club is a great way to put your swing on plane and really start to narrow you misses. All shallowing moves are not equal, however; in fact, there are a couple that you’ll definitely want to try to avoid because they can actually have the opposite effect!

We’ve broken this series into two parts to make it more digestible. This is Part 1. Thank you for watching!

Shallowing the Club: Two Moves to Avoid (Part 2) is coming soon!

In this video, I use technology to help you better understand how you can pitch the ball like the pros.

When pitching, you may have learned to keep your weight on your lead foot throughout the shot. That’s not always the best approach. With BodiTrak, I show you how to move your weight correctly to achieve more consistent strikes.
