In previous videos I’ve explained what I’m looking for in the backswing from the face on angle is that from address the left shoulder is going to go some amount down and some amount in. I gave the check point that, by the time we get to the top of the swing the left shoulder should go down and in to the point where it’s at or just past my sternum location. Also, from this side, the shoulders are going to tilt about 90 degrees to my spine.
if you are watching this and you have a flat shoulder turn like me, you are going to need to feel like your left shoulder goes even more down than that checkpoint. If I’m on the wrong side of a checkpoint to flat and I know that my left shoulder needs to go down, then I need to feel like it goes way down. The whole point of these videos is to give you a checkpoint. You need to feel as far as you need to – one way or the other – to hit that checkpoint.
From the top and into the downswing, the left shoulder should go down and around. When we look at slow motion videos of PGA Tour players and we draw the circle around the head, we notice their whole body as a unit. What should you feel from the top of the swing? It depends on where you’re coming from. If your normal tendency is to go up right away, then you need to feel like you go down and around even more than normal. If you go down and around too much, (which is like one out of a thousand of you) then you need to feel like you go more up.
