Played Indian Pines in Auburn Alabama yesterday. Shot 45 on front 39 on back for an 84. Easily could have been in the 70's if it wasn't for my driver . shot 84 with 3 doubles, 1 triple, with some bogeys and birdies thrown in.
I have been working on my hips not swaying. Played my first round in a week. shot 45 on the front and 39 on the back for an 84. I could have broke 80 for the first time if it wasn't for my driver. Irons and wedges were just deadly all day but driver was being sprayed everywhere.  For the life of me I cannot understand how I have always hit irons so well and the driver terrible. I will say that I have been hitting nothing but irons lately to really try and go flag hunting...
I am the same way. I can warm up and hit 20 to 30 shots in a row that look perfect. Once I get a sweat going I start flying everywhere and the big push fades come into play. I usually hit my best shots before I am even warmed up. I've always have had a really active lower body and when I get going man my hips start sliding everywhere.
  Went to the range today. Hit some good shots and hit a few bad. I tend to hit 3 or 4 good baby draws right on target then I hit a push fade about 25 yds off line. I'm still fighting the push fade and keeping my hips from swaying back on the back swing. But overall I'm making good contact even if its offline. Submitted some vids to Evolvr so I'm waiting on that, really excited to start getting to work :). 
That's funny I was a pitcher in college as well. I hit my pitching wedge about the same. I would say 150ish. When I was fitted I was averaging 186yds carry with 6 iron. Sounds like we have some of the same problems.I don't know if I would give up my distance but I def would give up some height. I wish I could hit the ball lower.  I could probably be a single handicap If it wasn't for the driver. I mean 300 yds doesn't do any good in the woods lol. Anyway,Just keep hitting...
That's exactly what I noticed today. When I would start my back swing my front leg had more bend than usual and that's why it felt so hard to shift my weight back. That's a good thing though that means I'm headed in the right direction. It's amazing what really is going on with a swing and what you "feel".
I will def keep working on it. Is it normal to feel like my weight does not transfer to my back leg when I try to keep my hips from sliding on the back swing? Today on the range I felt great pointing my feet out just a smudge, but when I really concentrated on keep my hips from sliding back I had a hard time shifting my weight to my back leg. It could be because I'm used to sliding my weight back there instead of turning like im suppose to. I'll hit the course tomorrow so...
    Here is the video of today. One of the best range sessions I've had in awhile.
just got back from the range. Man, I must say I don't know if the stars were aligned or what. I tried aiming my feet out more so I don't get pinched like you mentioned. Nothing but baby draws. I started to hit some pushes and fades toward the end but that's because I get tired and my swing breaks down and I don't concentrate enough to tell myself what to do. The 100 degree weather will wear on ya when your just whacking some balls on the range. I'm going to put a video of...
Alright sounds good. I will def give that a try  tomorrow ill be on the range some so we will see how it goes. Yea I do tend to sway back some on the back swing. I can't remember where I read it but I read that you want to turn the hips almost as if you were in a barrel. I don't know how true that is but every time I try and do it I tend to hit the ball fat. In all honesty I have no idea when I watch a video of myself what I'm really looking at lol. That's why I have come...
