Does it feel like your hips, torso, back, etc, is pulling and whipping your arm through? If so then not strongarming.

Just made a GIF of Paul Omans drive. I think it perfectly does showcase the correct kinetic motion sequence.

So then what is strongarming?

I wouldn't copy Nates backhand form. It's not very good (for a pro).

Do you have video of your RHBH, so we can see what you are talking about? I don't know why you think 350' dictates strong arming or not? I see it as various gradations of strong arming.

Yes, I was strong arming when I first started, never said I wasn't. However you can see my hips rotating before "strong brace moment" in 2009, broke leg in May 2010. I had to slow down and delay rotation and counter-rotate my whole body more to fix it. Hard to say how long it took to throw 350' because to re-engineer my form I threw nothing but putters for about 2 months, no drivers whatsoever(no high speed drivers for close to a year). IIRC I went from about 200' to effortless 280' with putters in that 2 month time, meanwhile I was maxing like 250' before with a Boss and throwing as hard as possible. IMO driver distance is terrible way to gauge power or form, lot of different ways you can throw a driver, but if you can throw a Comet 300', that tells me you have decent form.

Just copied his reachback and unwind and I was getting 30-40 feet extra distance on my drives. Not sure how far I could of thrown it without wind but did get one out to almost 350 feet into a 25mph headwind. I could totally feel more power in my throw.

So changing your mechanics resulted in instant distance, while building explosive muscle took months. :rolleyes:

Same mechanics pretty much, just reaching back and around further.

I ask because you always seem to be critical of my distance in giving advice. I've been throwing LHBH 3 and 1/2 months. I think my distance now is at least on par with others who learn the right way.
