I've recently built a plane board
for the hands-below-waist-level part of my swing, and affixed a laser pointer to the butt end of my shaft to get a closer idea of my plane.
Everything is great for my backswing. My one piece takeaway is right with the plane board. I step ahead and perform my backswing so that my club is not touching the plane board for help, so to speak. The laser on the butt end of my club is right here. It's just inside the ball.
However, I can't for the life of me get the laser anywhere near the ball-target line on the downswing. I am just going very slow-mo, starting my hips through and leaving my arm unit as is much like the famous Hogan swing video. When I start, the laser light is way outside the ball, and it stays that way. The plane is probably perfectly parallel with the shoulder plane or the elbow plane
but it's a foot outside the ball. I need to re-route the clubhead back to the ball, and therefore I'm always OTT.
How do I get my plane on the DS to align with the ball-target line? The only thing I can think of seeing as my plane is parallel with the shoulder plane, but outside, would be that my hands are too high. If my hands were lower and dropped more at the start of the DS, I assume I would be right where I want to be.
However, knowing this just DOES NOT HELP. I can't figure out for the life of me how to drop those hands if that is the solution. I've either never felt it before and therefore can't produce it, or the knowledge of needing to do so won't penetrate my thick skull
If this is the likely answer to the issue I've described... how in the world do I drop those hands. Are there any good drills? What am I missing to complete that move?
