    Default Revisiting an old lesson from Brian

    Hi guys - love the new site and I'm happy to be back! So this is a strange one....but I went to one of Brian's camps in Long Island several years ago. During those 3 days he gave me a few tips that I vaguely remember and that dramatically helped. The problem is the older I get the less of what he actually said I remember

    Some of the key points that I *think* I remember were to try and hit my right pocket with my hands on the takeway, and to somehow allow my right elbow to raise during the backswing.

    I bring this up because I've been incredibly wild lately - particularly with my driver, and I often feel like my right arm is worthless in the swing and although I hit it pretty far, it seems to generally occur just because I swing so fast - which is not great for consistency. Can you guys take a look at the vid below and see if it does indeed look like I'm doing something funky with my takeaway? I can't quite grasp what it is that I'm doing, but it never feels comfortable and I am just getting tired of spraying it 100 yards to the left or the right on any given swing. Thank you!!!

    Right arm looks fine....left arm need more RAISE....start doing it right away in the takeaway.

    Brian, are you saying his DS is too shallow? Raising his left arm will steepen the DS plane.

    Why would it, necessarily?

    It would if he raised it over the plane of the shoulder turn and didn't plane shift back down on the DS.

    I have almost never had a problem with that.
