Peter: What I like about this particular DG is the fact that several of us are at the same point of single axis golf, in that we call all execute a decent game, but we haven't attained that purity that Moe has, in his swing.

Further, several of us are breaking down these moves, and just as you are not content to admit to pushing, I had to admit that pure pushing wasn't holding the angles for me either. However, I did feel that there was this definite feeling of straightening the right arm.

I always listen to that little voice in the wilderness, and somebody (I'm not taking credit) went to an NGCI, and said he instructed him to "FEEL" like you are pulling down the rope on a bell tower, at the start of the swing. That's what gives that drop down move, the move into the slot.

So, I went back to Scott H's preimpact drill (by the way to newbies, this is an excellent way to get the grip right) to see how it got the butt of the left hand into the proper position to get that feeling of pulling straight down on the rope.(If I haden't tried this, I would have argued against this position.)

BINGO. This is the drop down move.I added 10 yards to each iron.

Peter, this is what makes the right hand fly off that right shoulder. You see, you could have had this all the time, and I wasn't reading it right. However, what I was reading is that you levered back (curled) the right arm, and kind of held it there, while you pulled forward, like a conventional pullers swing, which tiled you backwards.

However, what I think is happening is that a person should curl back, and make sure you get the back of the left hand and the palm of the right facing forward (you will figure this out, if you take the preimpact position back to the top, and look at the position of that left hand), and, then, just pull straight down, and in a fraction of a second that right hand is activated through the shot. The releasing area is very dynamic, at impact.

You describe the releasing area so well that I gotta believe you had it. It is different than I thought.
