After a horrible range session yesterday, I got back on track by
simply putting my golf glove (which I don't wear anymore) under my
armpit.

Thanks for the tips on this drill!

I agree, it's a good way to get back on track. I've been using this
drill, along with left arm only to get rid of the blocks.

This drill is very similar to the one Hogan wrote about in "Five
Lessons", where you basically do a half swing back-and-through whilst
"feeling" that your arms are glued to the sides. It maintains the
feeling of connection and keeps you on-plane, the body swinging the
arms and then arms causing the hands to square the clubhead. Hogan
actually recommended to do this - what he calls - "training exercise"
every day knowing full well how easy it is to get off-track in this
crazy game.

Vijay is also an advocate of the drill as well. Like myself, he uses
the golf glove.

I illustrate this with a comment that it is like "swapping elbows!" In the
backswing, the right elbow folding and the shape of the left arm crossing
the chest forces the right elbow into the ribs. IF the release is good (and
the glove under the arm is an indicator...) the LEFT elbow GETS folded fast
and the LEFT elbow gets pressed into the ribs. If the left elbow flies and
does not hug the chest, it means that the club did not release, the right
arm did not cross over, and that the handle is chasing the ball down the
fairway, not the clubHEAD. So the short version is -- an observer will see
the elbows "swapping" their position against the ribs.

You're welcome!

I was hitting at the range today and did not use the headcovers. I
still have that tendency to pull, I'll have to work on that.

I'll be out there tomorrow--I will be back to the headcovers. I'm just
amazed at how I get away from a good technique if I don't do this
maintenance.

Mike
