Not sure if this has been asked before...

I tried Vgolf simulator last nite at Plaza-by-the-Park. Through the replay, i then realise how ugly my swing is...

Is there something out there to train and curb bending of left arm during upcoil?

Eeeekkk...

Already told ur abt the 2 break swing that you have earlier on.
That probably reduce 10m from your 2i. Should be hitting at least 220m if you managed
to change it.

i m under tuning now so i can share with u on left hand bend during upswing.

Tats what my coach tell me:

1. Initiate upswing only with right hand. left hand just hold club n guide club.
2. eyes look down at ball but chin up so shoulder can rotate. lots of beginner look at ball n chin also down so chin obstruct left shoulder from rotating fully n shoulder cant roate but hands will bend to create a false impression tat u r rotating.
3. 1 checkpoint to point 2 is left shoulder hv to be in-line with chin at upswing position
4. hv a slow upswing bcos speed of upswing will not affect distance. look at lpga n u will realise it.

willy, in your case, it's your elbow collapasing not your wrist... but it's ok lah, looks relaxed rather than straight and rigid. perhaps that's where you get those 300m drives from.

Your left arm should be slighty bent on backswing.... Keep your left arm staright is bad advice it leads to reverse pivot.

Yep that a bit much, (unless u really a kangaroo) sounds like you are not turning trunk enough on backswing but still trying to get club to parallel at top of swing.

I am with Nietsu at MB Friday am not sure if flight is full if not y not join us...
