Recently, Steve Smith, one of our most active bloggers on this site and a great student of the Surge Swing, did some self-analysis. He videotaped himself swinging every club in his bag to find out why he was losing power with his shorter clubs. Even though in his mind he was swinging correctly, he was amazed to find that just wasn't the case.
From what Steve wrote, it appears that he wasn't getting his hands and the club head to the toe line properly. To be clear, the proper way to execute my limted turn, vertical swing is to begin lifting the club as you commence your limted turn. It should be one fluid motion until the upper part of your forward arm and shoulder come parallel to and over your toe line. At that point, your turn should stop and the rest of your backswing brings your hands and club to their vertical position. As long as your hands are on the toe line it's OK if your club head goes a little way past true vertical-just make sure you don't let it wander too far into the Sacred Burial Ground. And remember, the same is true on the Forward Upswing. Your trailing arm needs to get back over the toe line but not beyond it!
Keep it vertical,
