Wayne D Working on it: April 2016

This is another video showing me working out problems in my swing. My biggest issue over the last few years has been my driver and I firmly believe that a big part of my problem has been my inability to deepen my right hip enough to keep the left side of my pelvis from moving forward as I reach transition, which in turn keeps me too heavy on the front of the left foot and unable to clear the left side of my pelvis enough to be able to “get around” on the ball and have the swing exit on plane.

      Thank you for the update. Keep them coming. Much better hip action on the second set of swings. Very interesting to learn about the relationship of the left leg and how it affects the right hip. I’ve never thought about the left leg resistance preventing a person becoming too heavy on that leg and not being able to get deep with the right hip. Very cool.

    When Bill Strawsbaugh gave me my first lesson 45 years ago he unwittingly introduced “pelvic thrust” into my swing which metastasized and at 91 still lingers in the background. I am amazed at the number of elite PGA professionals (10000 HOURS WORTH) who either were unable to diagnose this major flaw (instantly losing the vertical axis) or I was unable to translate and understand the many instructions given to me about this critical priority. I have yet to see a tour player who is NOT CENTERED PRIOR TO IMPACT, and whose arms are not extended fully, and their shaft is parallel to the ground, while their hands are over their left shoe, and the angle is being held by their right wrist—————–your explanation resonated when you ID’ed the root cause, at least in your case as —-not enough depth with the right butt cheek going back ————- Personally I have tried to solve my problem ——by starting the downswing by immediately seating my pelvis (both butt cheeks) directly down in —–a tractor seat—-thus centering my core——-similar to Rory and an earlier Tiger– at that point I can vigorously pivot left———Only an unqualified opinion BUT I would like to see the exit point of your shaft lower and around sooner achieved by ——–brushing your chest on the thru swing with your left arm———-and examining Charlie Hoffman’s finish————-tom hurst———–thanks for listenibg

    Wayne——–As a post script to my comment re:”pelvic thrust” —— a view of Snead in slo-mo illustrates an early statement and awareness level of CENTERING THE CORE———-or maintaining the vertical axis prior to impact——- I would argue that he initiates the downswing with his classic and original widening of the legs while holding the shaft angle with his right wrist —arms extended—— if the camera is stopped prior to impact you can see that the shaft is parallel to the ground, his hands are at his left shoe– WOW—–A CLASSIC LATE STRIKE—————this can ne seen—————————-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n48qybmOJo———-(only an opinion from an unqualified hacker) tom hurst

    Hogan’s stance looks a bit wider than yours which may contribute to a natural restriction rather than one you/we have to think about.
