Let’s look at Rod Pampling’s driver swing here. He has a swing that “over-rotates” during the backswing and the follow-through.
At address, Rod is a little bit too much over the ball but sitting very tall.
At takeaway, Rod’s club is nicely on-plane except notice that even his clubface is on-plane. (Normally, you want the clubface edge pointing up at the sky at this point)
At half-way point, Rod is in perfectly on-plane, nice….
Again, at the top, Rod is doing really well.
At half-way down, Rod is doing great again, pretty much on-plane.
At impact, notice how much Rod’s hips and shoulders have turned. This is because he “over-rotates” his body on the backswing. It’s not an easy swing to repeat.
After impact, Rod is slightly inside the plane, meaning he used his wrists a little to square the club.
Again, this is probably due to his over-rotations.
At finish, Rod looks pretty good.
Rod Pampling could really benefit from swinging with less rotation. Then again, if he has been swinging like this for last 20 years, I wouldn’t change it, just go working on my putting more.
