    Swing Aid Advice

    Looking for a good swing aid. I have been looking at something similar to the Swingyde...my issue seems to be that I am not setting my wrists soon enough causing a bent leading arm.

    Is it possible that your bent left arm is a result of your lead shoulder not turning enough? We are often anxious to get back to the ball so we don't complete turning our torso but the arms continue moving back resulting in the lead arm bending.

    I purchased a contraption years ago put out by David Leadbetter called "The Right Angle". You wear it on your trailing arm. This thing hinges 90* at the elbow on the back swing thus making it impossible to collapse the lead arm forcing you to turn your shoulders.

    Basically the same concept BC was referring to.

    Very effective

    The things I like to see in a backswing are very difficult to achieve for multiple reasons, the biggest being flexibility. Thatís why having a perfectly straight left arm at the top of your backswing is great, but sometimes is unrealistic, and not always necessary.
    Heck, Curtis Strange won back-to-back U.S. Openís with a bent left arm!

    Just because you canít make a full turn with a straight left arm doesnít mean you cannot create width in your swing, which is why we wanted a straight left arm in the first place. So forget about the left arm
