    Default what's wrong with pop out

    Pop out...I'm referring to the takeaway of course, where the hands start a bit outside before coming back in.

    Seems like maybe great players have this move (Rory McIroy, Kevin Shields etc) . And I think recent research (from wiseguys) has shown that the hands should pop out slightly to be optimum.

    So what do you guys think about this? If you're strictly following the soft draw pattern you're not supposed to pop out...but I think the pattern can work really well also even with a bit of pop out.

    It's a matter of degrees and how it effects what happens after it.

    I think a little bit is important, especially in getting the correct left arm to chest angle of 55 degrees.
    Moving the hands towards the target....is death.

    If you don't practice everyday like they do, no instructors monitor you, you can end up super flat at the top eventually. To be honest, I think Rory only does a tiny bit...

    Not really a mega problem IMO in terms of geometry, because it CAN (not always) get you laid off at the top thus enabling a tumble in the downswing.

    Robert Garrigus has a bit of pop-out as well, correct?
    At least now I understand why I suck at this game.

    Jared,

    55* measured how(in what relationship of the arm and chest) and where in the swing?

    In the right swing, a little pop-out is good. In the wrong swing....uh oh.

    Could you give us a hint as to what swings are right and wrong?
