I’ve found that when you try to move the front shoulder down, you’re dead. That move, does not wind around the spine and causes other issues. The Large Muscles Drill, shows how the shoulders turn around the spine, when upright. Then, you have to take that same feeling of turning around your spine, and do it once you’re setup and there is a bit of “tilt” to your spine. Takes practice, but there is a freedom turning the shoulders around the spine when done correctly. If it feels “labored” or you can’t turn the shoulders very far, you’re probably not turning them correctly. You can also feel your back shoulder “pull” towards your spine (not up). You want to get this down, because every club is a different length and your spine angle will change a little between clubs.
