    Hey JH! I’m back after a little vacation with the family out in the country…no television, no internet and barely any cell coverage. Just time with my family and the outdoors. I have a question: does your trail forearm actually touch your trail thigh (barely touches the outside surface of your shorts) during your setup? That’s what it is for me anyway. I think my arms might be short for my body so that’s what is causing that? Thank you for explaining to take your grip in the connected position and then position yourself into the ball. I’ve been doing it the wrong way and now I understand. It was causing so much tension in my whole upper body that my low back was getting sore and I started mishitting shots. Can’t wait to get out to the range and work on this…hopefully I haven’t lost the swing with my long absence away from the course. Thanks again JH! Cheers!

      I like everyone ‘feel’ like something is taking place to a certain degree when it clearly isn’t… I need to get my trail elbow further back at address for sure to the extent I I am preaching .
      I have also come up with a variation to the backswing process which I will elaborate on in the next video.
      cheers Jh

      Thanks for the reply JH. I made a discovery this weekend. Instead of hinging up with the intention of putting the club on my trail shoulder like you described, I had been hinging it to the inside. This was giving me fits because the centripetal force on the through-swing was pulling my arms away from their connected position and thus causing heel shots. I started working on the Comeaux type take away and it helped a lot. That motion is so far removed from what I’ve been doing my entire golf life that it’s very uncomfortable. It almost feels like I’m looping the club to the outside (way outside) and then dropping it into the slot on the direction change at the top of my swing. I’ll have to work out the feel for this but at least I’m not starting from scratch. I guess that I didn’t understand the “fanning open” feeling that you described in an earlier video but I get it now. Thanks for all the great teaching JH! Cheers!

    Hi JH, I hit balls to day, some good , some fat. I wasn’t standing close enough to the ball with heavy elbows like you explained. I have to learn this swing so I can continue to play golf. I haven’t lost any distance but the ball was a lower trajectory. So I have to remember to swing up. Excellent instruction. I’m learning more every video. Thanks again.

      Hi Ray,
      Its a swing that will take some time and patience to learn…. I am just like you at the present time and I am taking things in ‘baby steps’ because it is not an easy process to ingrain and change over to which is why there will be bits of intrinsic info coming along every few days… I am amazed that some of the guys have taken it to the course already and had results of a reasonable nature.
      Ray if this swing doesn’t work for you I can assure you there will be other options for you…you wont have to stop playing… where there’s a will there is a way.
      cheers JH

    Jh, right hand dominant? Alan

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      Hi Alan,
      Right hand and ‘fingers’ dominant ( if you are right handed that is)….the trail hand throws away from the wrist hinge big time … I will be doing some more nitty gritty detail stuff maybe tomorrow so I will include some reference to to this aspect.
      cheers JH

      There will be more ‘pause’ incorporated in the learning action in the next lot of videos.
      cheers Jh

    excellent jh.very simple to perform the motion from paused position with plentiful power.

    another nice thing about the motion is the miss hits are usually fat or thin not as painful playing a round with the swipes.cheers
