    This is a nice article about the trail elbow, however this down and in front of the trail hip is only one of multiple manner in which to position that elbow at it’s release point. Jim Furyk’s trail elbow is up and out and behind his right hip at the release point in a “pushing” orientation. Multiple player’s have their trail elbow not down in front but down and at the side of the right hip (for righties) at this point. So to teach this trail elbow in a down and in front location, what The Golfing Machine calls a “pitch position” suitable for true “Swingers” of the club is sadly an incomplete presentation of the subject. People who drive the club more with their right (trail) arm, i.e, Hitters vs Swingers, vs pulling or drawing the club via their pivot, will find this lesson harmful.

      Suggest that Furyk has right elbow behind his right hip, at P6, allowing his pivot
      to pull the butt of the club with both left and right side to square the clubface
      RATHER than releasing with hands.
      With right elbow in front of right hip at P6 the only way to square the clubface is to use
      hands(forearm muscles) and we all know how timing dependent hitting with hands is, with misses both ways. Like Ben Hogan , Furyk rarely misses left.

    Lag is all that is required in the DS.
    With lag; the right elbow, forward shaft lean, open hips and shoulders at impact all fall into place when the clubhead lags behind the hands from top of BS past impact.

    Without lag, each of the listed body positions is meaningless.

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.
