  1. How can you tell it is a pull from the divot? A left pointing divot does not indicate a pull.
  2. David Hicks Putter from the UK isn't it?
  3. Nice job guys. The key phrase was "Also... for long clubs like driver and 3 wood, if I drop it first, wouldn't I hit it fat?" The answer to that question for an upright player is, "Not if you pull the left and most certainly if you push with the right." A tennis backhand with the left hand is not a bad analogy.
  4. Sai-Jin Quick question. Do you lead your downswing with a left arm pull or push with your right? Try this thought pattern. Turn and lift and pull with the left.
  5. DPlane theory assumes two things that don't get mentioned as often as it should. It assumes the appropriate lie angle at impact. It assumes a strike on the sweet spot. Especially with a driver. Gear effect can overcome Dplane effect
  6. The hybrid phrase is one used by an instructor to describe those who worked with Butch Harmon. Arm on top of the shoulder, square clubface to the left arm at the top. Slide and turn (one move) in the down swing.
  7. If swing plane is not important or worth considering then what is? I would hazard to guess that the op found the appropriate arm slot during the round and that was the reason for the improved ball striking. He says the arm is on the same plane as the shoulders. What would happen if he swung the club on a more upright arm plane but used the same down swing sequence of motion as always. Hips would spin out, the club would be on a vertical plane and the only way to save it would be to chop.

  10. Old School on marking the face. The line on the ball is the only way to get a clear picture on lie angle. It can also give you an indication of the correct shaft flex with a driver.If the line angles toward the hosel the shaft is too weak. Toward the toe and the shaft is too stiff.
  11. I thought the choke down was a good idea, except it changes your spine angle at address. not a bad thing just something to keep in mind during the evaluation. Is there someone with a Ping fitting cart closer to you? They would have two flat in an number of options. Titleist as well. Two hours is a tough drive for an experiment. I would think at least 2 flat. Good Luck. You can find me on the internet if I can help any further. Golfspy Matt could help as well. Bruce
  12. My point is it doesn't close. Just irons that are too upright. This is a real point of contention with me. Swing changes to correct poor fitting equipment. The yellow line in the picture is 54 degrees. The bottom of the shaft is probably 53 degrees (shaft plane adjusted for toe drop). The standard 6 iron is 62? choking down a inch won't be enough.
  13. Too far forward in your stance. Not too far away from you. No need to choke down the driver.
  14. So I am making the assumpiton you won't take my word for it. Fair enough you don't know me. The following are two frames form your video same swing. I measured hands to the ball in the first frame, and then copied the line exactly and moved it to the ball in the second picture. Note regardless of camera angle you are not over the top. Now look at your right elbow under your left at impact. How do you get the club closed with your arms in the positon. Look at your right hand, still under the club. Look at the club face wide open just before impact. Irons are too upright.
