That was it! Thanks, +Missouri Swede and +NewtoGolf. Now to find how to reference someone by name here... Also, I need to be sure to revisit this thread in a few months when I'm used to the new software.
I'd suggest having the weight more even between the toes and the heel. Too many golfers get the weight back on the heels and it effects their ability to make a good pivot. Check this thread out. Good Golf Posture (How to Address the Golf Ball) Also, Rose doesn't look back on his heels here.
I've been browsing around and looking at many professional golfers on youtube. I came across one of Justin Rose's videos and I fell in love with his simple, smooth swing. I was watching a swing analysis of Justin Rose and during this video he talked about how Rose would lean back slightly into his heel before beginning his take back. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jh6RbcRXLDs I was wondering if it would be a good thing for me to consider putting into my swing. I have a rather long neck and I feel like I gain a lot more stability when slightly leaning back as Justin Rose did. Any thoughts?
I have i irons and a Glide 52 degree wedge. I think having more of the "muscleback" style of wedge offers more versatility from 100 yards and in and around the greens. There isn't a right or wrong answer, depends on the golfer. If it works for you, stick with the matching gap wedge. In 2014 Hunter Mahan played a good chunk of the season with i25 wedges and S55 irons.
