PostSubject: Fixing the "Baby under the Arm"   Thu Mar 01, 2012 10:26 am

You've heard of "Humping the Goat", well now I will introduce you to another common swing problem we call "Baby under the Arm". This phenomenon is practiced at driving ranges and golf courses all over the world. To really highlight this problem I have used an extreme example. There are many golfers that have this problem on a smaller scale, even some PGA pros.
If you are lacking distance, slicing, scooping, you may be suffering from this.

The term comes from the big gap under the right arm of the golfer coming into impact, hence, a mother carrying her baby under the arm (guys are also susceptible to this)



Here's the video on how the student went from hitting her 9 iron 30 m to 60 m in about 20 mins

Interesting comment posted on the video on youtube

"hi, she is still "swaying" her upper body and head despite her spine angle has been corrected?

For gods sake, its a 60 y/o auntie and she made such a big change in about 20 mins. I guess some people just don't get it. Maybe if she just goes and gets fitted, works on her mental and buys a new $500 driver that will solve all her problems.
