Response to Blake photo

A few weeks ago Peter wrote: "I've seen several shows on TGC lately that emphasized the importance of keeping the club 'outside the hands' in follow through on pitches. This is one of the more notable elements of Blake's swing both full and pitches based on the photos of him that have been posted here. However this is not exhibited in Richard's swing. How important is this element of Blake's swing?"

His definition of 'outside of hands': "If you look at GtTB Fig. 28, a vertical line through the clubhead is 'outside of' (further from the body) a vertical line through the hands. The same is true in follow through for some photos previously posted here of Mindy's full swing follow through."

Peter pointed out that this latest photo of Blake exhibited this same characteristic. He also said in an email to me that this characteristic indicates no release, something that Mindy thought important. Richard has said he's recently been trying to eliminate some release that has creeped into his swing. How does your swing compare with Mindy's? SD
