    Well I’m back from a years break. This is still my favorite drill to do.
    Here’s my problem and I can’t figure it out. I’m having problem lining up
    the club back at the 9 o’clock parallel to the target line. My clubhead
    tends to go a lot inside at that waist high point on the way back. And I’m
    completely stuck just like my clubhead haha. Either I’m hinging too early
    or I’m just rotating my arms wrong; or overdoing both. What’s the easiest
    way to set those wrists/hands/arms?

    Your backswing and downswing videos have helped me hit the ball straighter
    than I have ever hit the ball before. No doubt! Just to make sure that I
    am following your setup correctly, should my rope be along the ball target
    line or where my shaft is lined up with the ground (about 1 to 2 inches
    inside the ball target line).

    Thank you I really appreciate it. Just a suggestion but when you practice
    making your back-swing do so with a small towel or head-cover under your
    left arm to maintain the connection with the upper arm against the upper
    torso. As you swing back your upper arm will stay connected to the body
    until the arms start lifting to complete the back-swing. The best of luck
    with it and thanks for sharing your comments.

    Hi Lawrie, another excellent video Your commentary is clear and easy to
    understand. I would really like to see the front view of the initial
    takeaway. I have tried this and feel my left arm seperating from my body.
    Im not sure I have the execution correct. Cheers

    My advice is that as your hands and pass your right knee the golf club can
    start to move to the inside. The golf club-head will travel straight back
    for about 12 inches before it starts to travel inwards. I hope that helps,
    thanks for your question and taking the time to comment.

    Thank you for your comments. The contrived feeling is feedback that you are
    trying to change your stroke pattern and being told not to. However all
    levels of change from simple to complex require struggle before mastery.
    The struggle is changing one habit for another. You have 2 choices; 1.
    change your pattern and learn to cock your wrists on plane or 2. develop a
    compensating downswing motion that is compatible with your current
    back-swing motion. Both are acceptable but # 2. is easier to do.

    This is the 1st video where a pro made it easier to understand the swing
    plane on the back swing. I would love to send you my swing (which is not
    very good as far as being on plane) and hear your feedback. Thanks!

    Thanks for your great question. I would suggest that you get your left
    shoulder back as far as you feel comfortable. If you can’t get it behind
    the ball then go as far as you can and start your downswing from there. Set
    yourself a goal of getting your shoulder to go a little further every time
    your practice and you’ll discover that over time you’ll be confident to get
    your shoulder to the maximum position. The best of luck with your golf and
    thanks for sharing your comments.

    There’s an old debate in golf about a simple question that is asked of a
    golf instructor. The question goes like this; “If Lee Trevino came for a
    golf lesson because he wasn’t hitting it good, what would you do? An
    inexperienced golf instructor might try to change his swing to make him
    play better but a seasoned golf instructor would probably improve his
    impact and leave his swing alone. You need to focus on achieving 3 things.

    I’m glad you enjoyed the video and I went to your Youtube page and had a
    look at your golf swing. You appear to strike the ball very well and
    although you’re a little off the plane angle going back you recover really
    well coming down which when all is said and done is the most important time
    in the golf swing. I looked at your impact alignments and was really
    impressed with the amount of right elbow bend at impact. Thanks for sharing
    your comments and the best of luck with your golf.

    I was playing a lot of golf a couple of years ago and my game got pretty
    good. The last two years I haven’t been playing as much and when I go out
    now I struggle. After watching a couple of your videos and especially this
    one, I am feeling like my old self again. Thanks for the great instruction.
