Matthew’s right arm gets too stuck behind him because it flares out too much going back. That right arm getting tucked behind makes him too shallow when he comes into the ball costing him solid contact. It doesn’t allow him to extend his arms out in front which compromises contact, distance, clubface control … you name it, it’s just not good.
I use a basic but super effective training aid to eliminate that right arm going out during the backswing. In this video, we’re just using Franklin rubber ball from a sporting goods store because our go-to aid – The Tour Striker Smart Ball – keeps disappearing!
The Tour Striker Smart Ball is an inflatable, flocked “beach ball” that connects to an adjustable lanyard so it fits anyone. It’s one of the best body connection training aids on the market and can really help you understand HOW the arms and body work during the swing. You can find it here: http://amzn.to/2nAQe9n
