My SA Set up and turn: APPLES





Conventional Golf Set Up and turn: ORANGES




I think you were looking for me to have a more "Hoganesque", hands hanging, more bent over turn (as evidenced by your referring to the Utube Hogan clips.) Which would look more "pro" to your eyes. The key point is to turn around your spine, which is a "level shoulder turn". I do that with both set ups, my SA set up is just much more erect albeit a bit hunch backed.

These are posed static pics that mama was hesitant to let me take because of room, but you get the idea. End of denial?

I still don't like it.
Look at Scott: http://www.scigolf.com/scigolf/swing.htm

You appear to be rolling your lead shoulder as a takeaway,
almost an over the top backswing. Scott's takeaway seems
to be issuing out of his lead armpit.

But the level of your play speaks for itself and my comments
are just comments. Play on.

The reason I am sensitive about this is that I see myself
in your TOS. I played with a backswing very like it for
a couple of years and you can hit the ball from there
extremely flush and consistently. My ball flight was varied
from straight to slight pull to pull draw to wicked pull
hook but always flush contact. It was very seductive.
I still fight it. The wicked hook was rare but I could
almost always count on it with trouble close and left.)

the feedback, and your comments were taken to heart. I am in the process of refining some aspects of my swing and so I looked st this and thought about it a long time a long time. If there is something fundamentally wrong with my shoulder turn - I want to fix it! But all I've ever tried to do is just turn around my spine.
