Hi Robin here. If you've videoed your swing, you've seen the club crossing the line at
the top, or you've seen that your club shaft is getting very steep coming down. You heard
lots of shots of the toe of the club, you've heard toe shots, high weak cut shots to the
right. You're probably not setting your right arm in the correct position during the swing.
You're probably not rotating your right arm and keeping your arm in front of your body.
Your elbow will be flying, causing the crossover. Your elbow will be coming down too much behind
you with your forearm almost parallel to the ground.
That's probably quite an easy fault to see, and when I see people with this fault, often
they're really focusing on how their elbow is working. I've mentioned this as well in
another video about flying right elbow. But they are focused on how their elbow is working,
trying to keep their elbow in front of their body. But in my lessons and in my experience
I've had better success when I've tried to encourage people to understand what they're
feeling in their shoulder. What their shoulder is doing when they're setting their arm into
the right position.
Now you can do that to your hitting balls in practice swings, but if you're really struggling
getting the feeling, something I encourage is add a little bit of weight. Get a dumbbell.
It really depends on your strength level, what kind of weight you're gonna use, but
it doesn't have to be particularly heavy. And what I want you to do is work on first
of all, I want you to feel like your shoulder is open at [inaudible 00:01:37]. You're pulling
your shoulder back. You're feeling like your shoulder blade's working. Down and back, you're
packing your shoulder. And then simply during the swing I want you to keep that feeling.
So yes, your elbow will be in front of you, but you'll feel your shoulder blade down and
back. Your shoulder stays open. Rather when your elbow will fly, your shoulder will get
forward, your shoulder blade would raise up. You can feel your shoulder blade down and
back. It's quite a packed feeling for me, and that little bit of weight when I'm swinging,
increases my awareness of that movement. Just a great drill you can do on the driving range,
at home, in the gym, to teach you the feeling of setting your right arm into the right position.
The movement of that right arm, the position of the right arm and the swing is a very crucial
part to a good golf swing.
So really, once you started to sense what's going on in the shoulder, keeping that shoulder
open, keeping that shoulder blade down and back, you can put away the dumbbell. Take
your club and just try to sense the same things during your swing. Now if you can create that
at the top, it's sure to fix your club crossing over. If you can keep that same feeling coming
down in the shoulder, shoulder blade thing down and back, shoulder staying open, that
will keep your elbow in front, and that will shallow out your sink path. So say a good
drill for anyone who's crossing over, feel like you're getting the club steep at any
point in the swing. Someone's told you your right elbow is flying, or your right arm is
not working correctly, give the dumbbell a try. Try to become aware of what's going on
in your shoulder, rather than so much what's going on in your elbow.
