Wayne D. in Boca: More Progress

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

I feel that I am making progress more quickly now that I feel better and can actually do some of the things I’ve been thinking about for years. This week I’ve had a chance to test out the more erect set up with less knee flex and I like the look and function of it although it has not produced as much lowering as I had expected in the backswing. It has, however, given me a greater feeling of loading into the right hip which has made a big difference in my ability to sequence the transition from the ground without leaning forward toward my left toes with the upper trunk. I had the idea of rotating my chin as I started (or before) the club back that made a huge difference in my ability to get the club up on the plane in the takeaway instead of having it stay too low to the ground. This sets up a whole different motion pattern that eventually allows the body to open up more and club to exit more left through impact. My next goal is to bend my left wrist down earlier in the downswing in order for it to lead better through impact.

Hi Wayne, great work. You know you are doing a great job and it is showing up on video here. This is going to be tremendously successful and accomplish the goals you set. It is also helping your students get better. Keep up the good work.
While watching your video of Mr. Hogan in this segment I saw that his left arm is higher then his right elbow through the impact. This does not seem to be easy to do but seems to be important because you can’t get a strong throw with the right arm if your left arm is in the way. Can you let me know what you think about this? Thank you David W

5 lessons Mr Hogan page 94 to 108. Something going on with the right elbow or right side seems to help the left wrist supinate? Extends arc for speed and power …need help understanding this in more detail please..Thank you David W

That’s a great book, David! So, when Hogan lowered in the backswing and forward swing it must’ve changed his shoulder angle to more steep, right? I’m trying to get myself stacked over the ball like he does the proper way. He always looked so balanced over the ball. The way I see it when he shifts to the right everything shifts to the right, when he shifts his weight to the left everything shifts to the left.

Hi Charlie, while watching Waynes video I noticed his right elbow was not as low as Hogans. Hogans seems to be lower and underneath the left arm through the the lower swing. I am trying to understand this as I may be able to benefit from the detail on this as I work on sequence. I really hope Wayne comments on this as I don’t know enough yet to figure out the details. Thank you. David W
