    Paul, could you go over How to fix a steep swing. I still have a habit of doing that occasionally.

    Paul ,I ‘more on the side of having a flat(and short) backswing than an upright one ;I ‘m always fighting my natural tendency not to lift the club enough .
    Is the position of the right upper arm somthing important :it seems it should be vertical ,and this is a position I have great difficulties to acheive ,my upper right arm is angled ,not vertical.
    Also there’s a great variety in the top of backswing positions of the best players :past parallel,parallel ,short of parallel:you are parallel.
    Is there a position to copy more than an another ?

      Raymond,

      I like the right arm on the same angle as the spine at the top. I can’t make it vertical either so don’t worry if you can’t. I like the club parallel with driver. I did experiment going a little longer last year now I’m back to parallel.

      Raoul,

      It sure is. You need a new habit and keep doing it. Then you will get used to it.

    Paul,I looked at my backswing position :m’y right upper arm is at 45° to vertical :I have stiff shoulders ,and when I stand against a wall ,m’y upper forearms horizontal ,touching the wall ,the lower Arms at right angles ( Vertical ) don’t Touch the wall.
    This is the standard test to determine if your shoulders are stiff or not .
    Of course,there is a Bunch of exercises to improve this .( on a stability ball with light dumbells in each hand ,let them pull YOUR shoulders back )

      Raymond,

      Mine are about the same. I really don’t think you need to worry about it. Just lift the club up to the top from halfway back. Feel like you are dropping a grapefruit from the right armpit. This will get you in position at the top.
