    Default Right shoulder coupling shrugging and the left arm swinging across the chest

    I was wondering if anyone has ever dealt with curing the left arm swinging across the chest on the BS?

    I get halfway back on the BS and my right shoulder coupling begins to shrug instead of turn around. This causes my left arm to move across my chest and makes me raise up and not complete my turn. Then I start down on the DS with too much axis tilt.

    Anyways does anyone have some suggestions on how to either not swing the left arm across the chest or stop my right shoulder coupling from shrugging? Thank u in advance for any comments.

    Find Brian's old article on the perfect pivot. Practice his suggestions until you can remember how they feel. Repeat the feel on an actual swing. That should get the right shoulder turned properly. I focus hard on making sure my spine does not move while my body is turning around it, as it is suggested in the article.

    Does anyone know whether there a video with the "crossing guard" drill illustrated?

    Yea I've worked on the crossing guard drill for 3yrs. I've had several lessons w/ Brian when he showed it to me. Also read and seen perfect pivot stuff. But I have overactive arms and hands so doing drills is one thing but I need to make some changes to fix this. What are u specifically suggesting from that information? What changes should I make?

    Oh, okay sorry about that. Doing the twistaway does keep my right shoulder down. I would love to be able to swing that way again but I already have a closed clubface as it is.

    During lessons, Brian would always put his hand on my back and do the drill where I turn away from his hand. Works fine for a session, but then a I reroute back to my old tendancies.

    Wow, great advice. Was doing some dry swings making sure that my femoral head was moving slightly towards the target. Definitley created some width between my upper and lower body.

    Shoulder exercises in "Golf Anatomy". Do them regularly and with good form. Your shrug will disappear naturally.
