Response to It doesn't
for us mere mortals to set it before the downswing begins don't you think? You said something else too that I think bears comment:
"....using flexion, supination, and ulnar deviation of the lead wrist before and through impact is more important than concentrating solely on lag to get the hands ahead of the ball at impact. I'm getting some really good results by practicing this move ... more so than with the last 16 months with Bertholy"
First that is awesome that you continue to improve. But you gotta ask yourself...how far do you think you would have gotten with this new move had you not first developed a good Vital/Master move, improved your strength and flexibility, and your understanding of the golf swing as you worked?
It's sorta like me saying "I have added more speed in the last 4 months using the speed chain than my previous three years with Bertholy". That is true, but again where was the foundation laid for that speed? The idea that the exercises condition your body to "accept the fine golf swing" is lost sometimes as we continue to improve.
Something to consider....Whenever I find some aspect of my swing I need improving, I always do it within then framework of The Blueprint/Bertholy exercises. Last winter I worked on improving the set at top of swing as I made the Vital Move. This winter I have been focused on improving my forward lean/maintaining my spine angle and improving my "tush line". Though my swing is built and is a habit, there are always tweaks and improvements that can be made. So when adding in an improvement, I want to take care that I don't "over write" the existing structure/habit. By working within the framework of my basic swing and the exercises, I ensure this.
Now let's go to the other side. Imagine a player with an over the top move...typical shoulder roll and casting...and he doesn't make the move to the lead side very well at all. Now he reads about this "bowed lead wrist and ulnar deviation"....he gets all excited and begins focusing on it. How do you think it will go? Unless he fixes his swing with The Vital Move and the trail elbow seeking his navel, he is still going to have difficulty achieving a good impact position, no matter how much he bows that lead wrist.
The bowed lead wrist move is a component to the overall structure of the swing you have spent 16 months building - I suggest you are seeing the results with this new move because of the work you have put in previously.

Never quit til you have a swing you'll never forget!
