how and if power is stored in the BS windup to use in the DS or
something like that- anyway, what is your opinion of these
6 clippings? A lot of what they show seems logicial,if not obvious
to me, but feel is not always real.
Anyway i would like you and Peter and Mac and so on to comet
on each one if you can. Do you think this guy's ideas are sound
or is he way off base?

Did you get those pages from an old Mindy Blake golf instruction book?

There is lots of 'golf speak' in the article which results in some statements being inaccurate. Since the text is an image (so I can't cut and paste) and I don't have time to type it all in I'll just say that stretching of the lead side so much that you can't hold your top of swing position is probably not good (being out of control seldom is) but in no way is it a gurantee that your trail shoulder/arm/hand will be subordinated and not roll/thrust/cast in the downswing. As I said in another post a longer backswing might get you more time in the downswing even as you roll/thrust/cast for your arms to get under the plane so the results might not be as bad but they will still not be good. You are also unlikely to want the same extreme shoulder turn on shots under 150 yards.

If you want to test if the effect is what I suggest just set up a 'path trainer' as I described in another post. It's easiest to do if you have a grass driving range. Just set a tall tee on line about 8-12" behind the ball. Start your backswing from behind that tee. If you hit the tee on the downswing then your path is not sufficiently from the inside and is likely over the swing plane. If you do better (i.e. you don't hit the tee or the tee can be closer to the ball without you hittingit) with a fuller backswing then what I suggest is what's happening.

in the pics is that there is no slantidicular away from the target in the "full wind-up". Do a full windup without slantidicular and then with it - you can definitely feel which way creates more stretch and "wind up".

Any good swing built for power has this element to some degree:

Mac, are you playing with words again? - slantidicular- indeed!
slandickulher? Please explain.

it just means that the spine is slanted away from the target at the top. Look at the red line in these pics again:



Here is a pic of me making a poor iron swing, look at how vertical my spine is:



Quite a difference from my top of swing position in my driver swing:



The tilt away can be aided by a proper setup. To feel the difference in "windup" turn in front of a mirro keeping your spine straight like I am in the first pic. You will feel almost no stretch at all. Now turn so that your have slantidicular - you will feel a good stretch all along the left lats down to your hip...
