    Posted: 15 November 2010 at 11:24pm
Posted a video of a few driver swings in normal speed and slomo.  I pause at the top to make sure that I'm not overswinging, which is definitely a tendency.  When I compare my positions on the way down, I see that I'm not holding much lag.  I'm a recovering hip spinner, but I've been working really hard on keeping the hips quieter on the way down.  I still haven't got it.  Does anybody see anything obvious that I'm doing wrong and have any suggestions on how to improve this?

If your looking for more of a "One Plane Swing" check out Chucks videos on "The Body Drill" and "The Rotary Drill" in the Original Rotary Swing (RS1) Video learning system. Remember your ABT's (always be turning).

You're throwing from the top, you need to feel a squat into the glutes rather than a spin of the upper body. This is creating a throw out motion.

Mship,
really impressive work! Never saw such an time-consuming answer with good advice.Clap
 
I would add, that he maybe throw with the right hand also. It`s almost not to see, if the lateral move causes this throw or an unconsiously move with the hand.
But I have seen  casting without an upper body slide in other swings. So there are some possible causes for an early release. Then the lag creating film from Chuck will help.

Mship:

Thanks so much for the thorough reply.  I really appreciate the effort!

I've been struggling with this sliding motion forever.  You'd be impressed by how much less it is now than before I started the RST program.  I definitely understand the lateral weight shift onto the left leg from a conceptual standpoint, I just haven't had any luck putting it into action.  Whenever I try to feel like I'm squatting into the left side as opposed to sliding over, I wind up hitting the ball terribly.  I think I probably need to just practice the move in the mirror a lot before getting the arms and club involved, much less trying to hit a ball.

I've watched all of Chuck's videos and will keep working on it.  If you have any drills or other advice to help develop this move, let me know.

Thanks again.

khung,

I'm struggling with the same thing right now.  One thing that seems to be helping me is the idea that the shift in to the left side is initiated by the squat.  The squat brings the weight back to 50/50, and then makes it much easier to pull the rest of the way.  Also, I'm trying to feel my left leg straighten slightly as I push the left heel in to the ground.  For some reason, it makes me feel like I'm getting that "leverage" off the ground.
 
And I thought it was hard to drill my early right elbow fold out of my backswing...

One thing that really helped me with the "sitting into the left side"was feeling as though this motion was part of my backswing.  As I complete my bacskwing I sit into my left glute.   As odd as this may seem it really worked for me.  I think the reason is because I tend to accelerate sharply on the downswing, but sitting into the left side isn't nearly as an aggressive move for me as the left groin and left oblique pull.
