I have been working on my balance arm forward recently. It seems that the shoulder rotation is making my shots inconsistent. Sometimes it's fine, but other times I tend to pull the shot left. Any advise on what I might be doing wrong?
Also I read the article about the balance arm and one part of it confused me: "It is key to keep the thumb pointing down, as this will prevent you from moving the arm back past your shoulders in the downswing. If you are still not sure of this, try this simple test. First, stand up and stick your balance arm out with your thumb pointed up. Now, move your arm back as far as you can. Next, do the same thing with your thumb pointed down. You will find that as your hand gets to be even with your shoulders, you will feel resistance – the biomechanical effect of how our bodies are constructed." When I did this test my arm could go as far back as it did with my thumb pointed up.
