Over The Top At The Bottom

I recently received a member question regarding steep contact. Specifically, this question has to do with steep contact at the bottom of the swing. Or in other words, there are times where players may work through some of the drills & concepts on the site, but still struggle with pulls and poor contact. In these cases, the (2) most common causes for this "steep at the bottom" pattern are:

    1. A lack of ulnar deviation (or unhinge).
    2. Excessive trail shoulder internal rotation. 

Working through some focused 9-to-3s is a great way to start improving your ulnar deviation or trail arm pattern; thankfully there are a ton of videos on the site regarding these movements, so do not hesitate to give them a shot.
