There is, for example, the tendency to try to “hit” the ball from the top of the back swing, but the problem is that you didn’t get to the top the same way.
So, trying to go straight down to the ball from the top leads to the “over the top” move.
There is another move that I see people getting wrong all the time, and this is from the “throw the club at the target” concept, which is not correct. You need to release the club into the swing bottom, not at the target.
In this case, people try to turn into impact with a stiff wrist and with the trailing or power elbow packed into the hip, which again can cause the “over the top” move or, for those who don’t come over the top, a dead pull or even pull-hook.
Think about it – you aren’t at address with your right elbow (for right-handers) jammed into your right hip, are you?
With the proper MCS address and impact, you go from extended right arm to extending right arm, but you don’t have the elbow jammed into the hip while you try to “turn through the ball,” which is a death move.
From Extended To Extending…
So, if you are unsure about the exact nature of the “extending” move in the “pop” of the “drop & pop…”
Then it’s this:
The keys to performing this move, as with everything else, go back to the address and back swing pivot:
- Proper Spine Tilt
- The “One Major Move”
- The Transition & “Drop”
So, keep in mind that there is no “turn” when it comes to the down swing “drop & pop,” but merely the initial drop followed by the extension down and through, and that is where you use the right arm.
Not before the “drop,” not during, but after…
