Interesting I think I remember something about this in hogans 5 principles. So essentially my right elbow is disconnected at the top and I should lead the DS with the right elbow to keep it tucked? Checked a justin rose swing and his elbow positions are as u described so I'm on board with the advise. My concern is that this feels like it would bring my swing path back under the plane and 'in to out' which is something I've been battling.
Would really appreciate some comments, critique welcome :)
Update: had a pretty slow winter season but been back at the range and seem to have made further progress in getting the impact position of the shaft close to the setup position and also having my follow through track the single plane more closely. From the video below I think I still have to hinge the club up earlier and keep my head up slightly on BS. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated as always. Really want to get my hcap down to 15 this year.
I have this same issue, bad shot for irons is a hook, and a slice for driver. It's mainly when I forget to think about my 'swing thoughts'. For the driver I have to think about not letting my wrists get too far ahead of the ball at impact, so I think "pause hand position at bottom of swing" to let the club head catch up. This ensures my club face is square. I don't have to actively think about that for irons, maybe cuz they're shorter and have less wind resistance? Also...
Transition weight to the heel of my front foot (rather than toe) to fix my in to out swing, seems to work a treat for me as i just shot my lowest score ever, and shots are lot more consistently straight :-)
Update: made some progress, had my best round ever yesterday 85, 13 over. My handicap has reduced from 22 to 18.5.   The pro measured my weight transition on a force plate. Previously i was transitioning from my right heel (on BS) to my left toe (on FT) which led to the in to out swing. Concentrating on moving my weight to my left heel seems to straighten out my swing. So happy .
Ha! At some of the courses I play that IS a worry. Thanks for the comments, I guess that's something I should consider doing on the course if it's a bad day rather than just being stubborn and having a crap round.
So if I don't think about my swing I push fade it. Instructor measured my swing path was 15deg in to out. So he has me trying straighten that out but when I concentrate on that I hook it, starts at target then moves left. I'd rather fix the cause that work round it. What confuses me is that the vid shows me on plane on the way back and down, but after impact my hands keep pushing right a bit which could be the cause? I kept trying to swing left but couldn't, frustrating!
I can't stop hooking! I had a lesson with a TGM masters qualified instructor a couple of months ago who made some changes. Now rather than a push draw, I just can't stop drawing/hooking. The ball starts at target. Got another lesson coming up with him but would appreciate any thoughts.
The range is astro-turf so all shots roll out, in reality those shots for me tend to stick or roll back about 1 foot. I played a round yesterday and i measured some shots, results below. These are the distances I'm more used to, I think the ProTracer thing at my range is totally F'd. 5i - 1858i - 142Sw F - 103 So annoying, why can't they get these things right, whats the point in having a system with multiple pro endorsements and have it be wildly inaccurate.
