The best way to develop forearm strength is to have to deal with a heavy impact bag. Nothing builds the strength better than dealing with the force of impact with the bag.

I now start from a position so rotated CW that my clubhead is basically on the ground and I try and keep it that low as I bring it around into the bag. ...
I was such a Faldo fan I made a point to stay at The Marriott Faldo Institute when taking the kids to Disneyworld in early 2000s in the hope I would see him practice.

I continue to work on the layoff, and tried to keep the left shoulder in it a bit longer after watching that Hogan video I put up when I had a look at Tim's swing. The layoff move is becoming more and more comfortable, but I still want to work it longer before beginning my release. Overall, progress is really starting to snowball. The most important fault I see going forward is to keep my upper left arm more tight to my torso in the initial stages of the BS. That will clean up any...
