    Jimmy Ballard redux. Funny how Ledbetter’s A-Swing boomerang device is supposed to go under the right shoulder (as I understand it).

    Great thing about the shirt-tucking is that you can use it in actual play.

      I don’t know much about but if he wants the right arm tucked that is going to cause a lot of problems for people. Yes, this is a good tip sent in. Easy to do.

    Quite a good reminder Paul :I am very careful to keep my left arm close to the body when I swing up in the backswing ,I have to “feel” this connection when at address ,then I go up with the clubhead remaining outside the hands so as to have a more vertical backswing and keep the connection longer .
    But I believe the connection left arm/torso is more important in the throughswing with the upper body literally “pushing “the left arm up on its way .
    This happens only if I rotate fully on the left leg in the throughswing ;
    Never put a clubhead cover under the right armpit ,it restricts unnecessarilly the backswing ;Jack NICKLAUS had a “flying “right elbow and nevertheless a marvelous swing

    I sometimes have the club going straight up and down on my follow thru behind by back. Will this help me get that parallel shaft to neck like you want? Also, if not would like to know what i am doing wrong to cause that.

      You need to manually set the club on the back of your head exactly parallel to your ears touching the shaft no the grip. Do this in a mirror every night. Once you do it will go there on its own. There are times when you need to feel your arms. This is when you are working on positions. This will allow you to build a great swing faster. Once you build a great swing turn your arms off.

      Club going down your back is you guiding the club through impact (holding it off). You could be sliding too.

    Where in the follow through does the club cover or the shirt sleeve release from the left arm pit?

      Once the back arm is above parallel to the ground in the through swing. You would not still be tucked into the follow through. There would be a gap under your left armpit.

    This helped me a lot. I try to keep my left arm connected and then i hinge while staying connected. I tend to move too much but with this thought I swing simpler and more in control.

    For pitches it also clicked for my once I did this. Left shirt sleeve tucked in while hinging the butt of the club to different positions.

      Very good. Do it until you know the feeling. I never think about connection because I am connected. This is where you want to be too. Other things you should be thinking about.
