Been doing a lot of work on posture and my release (chronic chicken wing sufferer) and here is my latest effort.    I'm using an old rusty bladed 3 iron in this vid and I was ripping the pants off it haha.   Any pointers very much welcomed. Thanks.     http://www.ubersense.com/video/view/lUlDSpEn?e=1781349#
No worries mate, I hope you get sorted soon.   I used to get caught up in the whole "start from the ground up" spiel, and it confused the hell out of me. When I changed my perception of the golf swing to one of literally swinging the golf club whilst the ball got in the way I had a major light bulb moment and the change was dramatic and I saw progress extremely quickly.   Another thing that may help is to take your golf posture (take a look...
Just my 2 cents here... I used to be a chronic over-the-topper and could never get the idea of passive arms etc.    This video changed the way I looked at the golf swing and has helped me no end. I now have a powerful draw that flies off the club face with what seems like such little effort. I broke 80 for the first time yesterday with this.   Take from it what you will, I don't want to step on anyone's toes here as I know theres some great advice on this forum!  
Thanks man, I'll take a look!
Hi all   I've had a very productive winter grooving a nice draw and generally feeling very happy with the way I'm swinging the club. I hit 2 of my best ever rounds over the winter - the best being 78 (par 70) that I hit yesterday. My handicap has been cut from 17 to 15 in the annual review so pretty happy with how things are looking.   The recurring problem at the moment is off the tee - my backswing looks good and my downswing approaches the ball nicely on an inside...
Now then, just been to the range and seem to be getting some good results shifting my weight - the whole feel of my swing is much smoother, which is a high turning point for me, I was stuck in a rut of trying to smash the ball as hard as I could.   Anyway, here's another swing. Shot shape was a lovely little push draw on this swing, however getting a lot of push-fades/slices. Any idea why that might be? I know i have a small chicken wing on the way through and really...
I'm working on actually swinging the club. I've never been able to get out of the mind set of 'grip it and rip it' no matter how hard I have tried in the past haha. Recently after playing 9 holes with a friend of mine who is a very good golfer I realised how effortless he gets power in his swing.    The feeling of throwing the club up and effortlessly swinging it back to the ball has been providing some amazing results, I've never hit a ball so well in my life. Such a...
Been to the range tonight and was hitting slice after slice with a few fat shots for good measure. Unfortunately not able to get a good quality video as the bays we were in were poorly lit.   After looking at the video above, my club face looks quite open at the top which I know can cause all kinds of trouble on the way down. My normal shot is usually a draw so could it be likely that the open club face is making me wipe across the ball so much?   Cheers.
Will give that a go, thanks. I tend to practice drills much more in my net at home - e.g. waist height drills and slow motion swings. When I get to the range I try to trust my swing a bit more to gain confidence as I tend to fiddle with my swing too much on the course. Very pleased with progress so far so appreciate all the help!
Posture might not be perfect on that vid above but can definitely feel an improvement. The difference of feel in shoulder turn is ridiculous. Feel so much more connected, stable and more controlled through the whole shot. Never occurred to me how much of a big part posture played in the golf swing.
