  1. Glad to see you get into this. Ive only seen one other youtube instructor show and explain this detail. I always enjoy your vids.

  2. Good explanation. Gives me some hope that I can find some balance in the swing besides just holding the finish.

  3. Fascinating stuff…all the forces coming into play as you move the club, not to mention the realization yiur hands aren't simply traveling in a perfect arc along the swing plane parallel to the club head's arc. It seems it is still an over simplification, given you are also rotating the club slightly as you bow and cup your wrists (intentionally or not!).

    My question would be, if you shallow out the club slightly as you begin the downswing, aren't you requiring more energy to bring it back to the line of action? Might you be able to get a tiny bit more energy into the club head if it were left on the plane as you begin the downswing?

    Thanks for helping us apply biomechanics to our golf swing! Cheers!

  4. Thanks for actually going into the physics of the golf swing. So many other instructors pretend to talk about physics (I'm thinking of one guy in particular from Arizona) who actually have no idea what they are talking about.

  5. Clay, great video but I got a follow up question. If you have a tendency to get steep in downswing, would you consider getting the center of mass above the hands in transition to help get the club to shallow towards the net force? If it's below the net force (and laid off as you discuss in this vid), isn't that helping the club get steepen towards the net force?

  6. Clay, this is great. I've stumbled on this concept as well recently. The way I think about it — Hands work out early (club shallows) and then they work up, left, and in.

  7. After watching your video, Clay, I looked at my good driving range swings recorded on my iPad. Sure enough, like you said they would, the swings with beautiful ball flight had the exact qualities you describe in this video – handle coming down that plane line, but the club shaft angle being on a shallower plane. Now if I can just get myself to groove this in, lol! Thanks!
