How the left shoulder moves into and out of transition will play a big part in how much control you’ll have over your golf ball. In this video, we look at a couple of key differences in how a typical pro moves his lead shoulder compared to a typical amateur golfer. The left shoulder movement is an important element in the golf swing, and having the right concept of how it moves will improve your golf swing.

    Seems to be contrary to most things l have seen about staying connected during the swing
    Is left arm staying connected going back recommended?
    When is left arm leaving connection from body in down swing?

    The comparison between pros and ams is quite valid, but once you attempt to utilize this information you must take into account your body type…. endomorph, mesomorph, ectomorph, hybrid-morph, to properly apply it.
    The best and only book (get it!) that addresses body type is:

    I have no access to the video. What’s up with that?

    Pretty tough to tell much from this two- dimensional view of a three-dimensional movement. Plus the pro has much wider shoulders, a much bigger shoulder turn, and, as has been noted, his right elbow is in a completely different position at the top.

    Tom, you mentioned my first thought when watching this. I think part of that problem is that his right elbow is flared and because of that, he can’t drop the club into the proper position. I’m sure that this motion is captured with others who do have proper right arm movement, but I’m more curious to know how much that right elbow is affecting his down swing.

    What is the height of these two golfers and what club are they hitting?

      Don’t recall their exact height but if IIRC it was right at 6′ for both. Both were hitting 7iron.

    How about the sigficant different positions of the right elbows coming into impact?

    Pros represent 0.0001% of all golfers… and the rest of us represent 99.9999% and the amount of golfers whose swings are faulty!!! Maybe a new set of PXGs… ya think?!!

Yes, you heard me, one of the best drills we have is the battering ram drill. It is awesome for getting the relationship between body turn and arm swing correct, and improving your impact conditions. Enjoy the video, and hope this helps!
