Why wouldn’t everyone swing this way?

Perfect for a thick build, but Nelson did it too. I’m like Nelson in build so maybe I can adapt this pattern and get the exit more left. Definitely worth a try.

Hi Wayne, As a PGA (Australia) Professional since 1977 I love your swing analyses for the reason that you deal with the facts and are not simply trotting out the tired old clichés as with some TV commentators. As someone who shares a similar body structure to Brendan De Jong and both Stadlers it is very difficult (or impossible) to have my elbows level at the top of the swing and therefore the outward movement of the hands is the only way for me to position my hands in front of my right hip to avoid the trapping of my right elbow behind my body, which has been a recurring problem for the last almost 40 years. In my teaching I am very aware of the idiosyncrasies of particular body shapes and I structure my remedies to suit. Ongoing thanks Wayne!

With a body shape like the Stadlers, Robert is obviously not the one who has been sacking caddies lately! :)

On a serious note, Your comments are great in that body shape has got to matter wrt what swing action one can make. A large guy isn’t going to get the club/elbow back in front from a deep hand position.

Enjoyed the video!

P.S. Also an Australian!

Maybe this seems like a stupid question but I’ll ask it anyway. What shallows the club in the first part of the downswing? Is it the right elbow moving inward? How can you feel the club laying back on the right index finger? i guess I’ll just try to picture performing a sidearm throw after reaching the top.
